For every birthday that you celebrate, the joy slowly dissipates into a sadder and starker reality once the party’s over. Your wish for everlasting youth almost never comes true; in fact things are going south real quick, quite literally.
The inner workings of your body start to lose its effervescence. The “operation system” gets a little more sluggish with time. Skin firming agents like collagen and elastin do not get replenished in time to keep your skin looking as firm as supple as yester-decade you.
This is where it all starts to fall apart. Your skin will start to sag, and the surplus of elastin and collagen will eventually result in the birth of wrinkles and fine lines.
The elements of the environment around you do not help your cause either – the sun’s harmful rays and the dirt and grime from environmental pollution just further deteriorates the condition of your skin.
