IN YOUR 20s
Skin may begin to feel dry and signs of sun damage may appear. Early signs of fine lines caused by repeated muscle movement can occur. This is typically around the eyes, due to smiling, laughing or squinting. These are known as ‘dynamic lines’, as they only occur when your face moves during expression.
IN YOUR 30s
Gravity begins to take a toll, especially in the brow area and around your chin. Skin may become less supple with broken capillaries. Fine lines may start to form around your mouth, which are known as ‘smile lines’.
IN YOUR 40s
Hormonal changes can lead to laughter and expression lines becoming more obvious, with cheeks and eyelids beginning to lower, jowls starting to form and the tip of your nose appearing to droop. ‘Static lines’, which are visible even when your face is at rest, start to appear.
IN YOUR 50s
At this stage, dynamic wrinkles can deepen, the number of static lines increase and you may notice that you have less volume in your mid-face and cheek areas. The loss of volume beneath your skin and a reduction in the quality of your muscles and bone structure, begin to occur.
60s AND BEYOND
In your 60s, broken blood vessels may appear on your face and age spots may appear around the hairline and neck. Wrinkles will deepen in the upper face, while you may continue to lose volume in your face and your skin may continue to lose elasticity around your cheeks, with the signs of sagging skin becoming more obvious.
