How much does genetics have to do with the way your skin ages?

If you want to get an idea of how your skin might have a tendency to age then there is some truth in the advice that you should look at your parents. Genetics can have an effect on the aging of your skin. The good news is that they do not have as much effect as the habits you develop and the way you treat your skin. This means that you have a major say in the way your skin ages.

We are going to take a look at how genetics have some effect on your skin’s aging process. We are also going to examine the effect you can have by ceasing unhealthy habits, using a solution such as an anti aging peptide and generally taking good care of your skin.

How do genetics factor in to the aging of your skin?

There is certainly a link between your genetic make-up and the speed with which your skin naturally ages. For instance, people with fair skin have a tendency to show signs of aging earlier than those with a darker complexion. Sagging, wrinkles and varicose veins are all things which you can be genetically predisposed.
Before you start abandoning your anti aging regimes and giving up, it’s important to note that your actions play a much bigger role in the aging of your skin than genetics. Let’s take a look at what you can do to slow down the aging process of your skin.

Stopping smoking

One of the best ways of helping your skin to age more slowly is to stop smoking. Of course, there are many health benefits of giving up the habit, but the benefits of having healthier and better looking skin should not be underestimated. Smoking reduces the elasticity in skin. It also reduces the amount of moisture present and the amount of Vitamin A.
You can see the effects of all this on the faces of people who smoke. They tend to have more wrinkles and sagging skin. Wrinkles are often especially apparent at the corners of a person’s eyes and mouth. If you smoke, and you want to improve the look and condition of your skin, the best way to do so is quit the habit.

Having a good skincare regime

The skin’s aging process begins when you are in your twenties so you need to develop a good skincare routine from when you are young. It’s worth investing the time and effort to try and make sure that your skin continues to look young and fresh for as long as possible. You need to do your research and experiment in order to discover the products and system that are best suited to the needs of your skin.
It’s certainly true that the way your skin ages owes something to your genetic make-up. This does not mean that you cannot help determine the aging process by the way you treat your skin and the habits you choose to give up.

Two Dishes One Soup Dinner

AUNTIE'S SIMPLE COOKING... for dinner on one evening.... Defrosted a piece of cod, my last piece in the freezer besides another few more pieces of other types of fish.  I think I consume the most fish this year, never bought so many types of fish before.  Maybe it is made easier for me this year cos of the online shopping at Gracious, cleaned, vacuumed and free delivery above RM50.   My last piece of cod.... A plate of greens called Yau Mak...  Not so sure what it is called in English And chicken herbal soup....  My complete meal for one evening....  As usual, I do not take much rice... Or perhaps I did not take rice at all for this meal....  LOL... 

A Short Stay At Fatima Hospital

TWELVE DAYS SINCE my last post.... I was admitted to the hospital last week for heart palpitations and was under observation for two nights.... Thank God all is well now....  And it is still all about food... this time from the hospital... LOL...  For breakfast 2 slices of bread... oats and milo.... I opted for porridge during one lunch.... And for dinner....  Wanton noodles for breakfast before I was discharged.... This was attached to my body to monitor the palpitations....  And the doctor whom I have chosen without recommendations... I saw the hospital profiles on the doctors  And I chose him because of his cheerful profile picture.... Yes, indeed he is what he looks... And I feel better after that... LOL... 

My White Elephant

WHITE ELEPHANT.... still laying on my table for two months I think....   My friend groomer is not free these days, my poor Labby badly needs her hair cut and leaving no choice, I ordered the grooming shaver online.  I thought it would be easy to install the shaver to the appliance and till today, I am still at my wits end on how it is fixed.  My friend gave me a tip... check out the Youtube, she said.  Yeah, how come I did not think of that.....  But till today, I have not even touched it and my poor furry member will have to wait till this Mama has her right mood to do it.   My own hair also badly needs a hair cut and with the high Covid cases each day, I guess I have to tolerate for another month with my unruly hair..... or perhaps I can make use of this clipper on myself before I use it on my furry member!  LOL.... Crazy me! Still standing nicely on the table....  Still looking at the gadgets.... and not doing anything about them... I am happy with this dish....  Better looking afte
