Not only do the internal features of human beings change, the exterior has many changes as well. One of those changes is the appearance of our faces and necks. As our muscle tone changes and our skin thins, our faces become flabby and begin to droop; sometimes creating a ‘double chin.’ This is more than upsetting to many a senior citizen. It is no wonder that the face lift market is in such high demand these days!
People that utilize face creams, keeping their skin from drying out and losing the underlying layer of fat that keeps our faces looking smooth due to the plump surface, are better off than those that are constantly in the sun and drying their skin out. Another damaging effect is smoking which causes lots of wrinkles.
The sun causes blotches and dark spots. The number and sizes depend on the amount of exposure that a person has had to the sun and the amount of protection utilized throughout their years.
Today’s sun protection is better than before, but it does take a great deal of research to ensure that there are no harmful ingredients that can potentially cause even more medical issues.
Even though seniors may have already done harm, caregivers can give them an extra boost by keeping them from doing any more harm. Make sure that you apply sun protection and extra lotions so that your clients know that you know that With Age Comes Respect.
