Ageing is a part of life and whether we like it or not, it comes with new looks. Ageing skin becomes thin, less elastic and more fragile as fatty tissue just below the skin decreases. Skin may also become drier due to decreased production of natural oils and of course, wrinkles, age spots and skin tags appear.
Ageing sounds pretty dreadful but if you have a good skin care regime in place, you’ll help give your skin the TLC it deserves. You’ll help reduce the speed of aging skin with nourishing products that’ll balance the changes.
Aside from your skin, another visible change will be your hair colour. Yes, you got it! The grey hair effects! Now some of us may not be bothered by what nature has planned for the pigment transformation whereas some of us may find those silver strands unsightly and troublesome.
Whatever your hair colour choice is – whether you like to keep your white locks as they are or whether you can’t stand them in the slightest – transitioning to grey is how it goes.
It’s irreversible as pigment cells in hair follicles gradually die over time. When there are fewer pigment cells, the hair strand will no longer contain melanin (which produces colour) and hair will turn grey.
Ageing with grace
So, how about it then? If you’ve got whites filtering through your hair, why not check out some celebs who’ve decided not to fight against aging, but instead, have worked with it to their advantage… and SO well that their good looks have become even more pronounced with their silver hair.
