The global anti-ageing market is expected to be worth $191.7 billion by 2019, as people all over the world attempt to stop time on their appearance.
Brits are going to all lengths to stay youthful, such as going under the knife or paying for expensive non-surgical procedures. As celebrities and people in the media seem to successfully fight wrinkles and other signs of ageing, the anti-ageing skincare sector is booming – and expected to continue growing thanks to an ageing population. Hair Development has released its most common embarrassing signs of ageing, and revealed what British men and women can do about them.
First up, for both genders, it’s thinning hair. Most people presume only men have to deal with receding hairlines or going bald, but certain medications, stress, and hormonal imbalances due to the menopause can also cause permanent thinning.
Janis Levy, Creative Director of Hair Development said, “We’ve had many people come to us about thinning hair caused by a number of reasons, but ageing is a common culprit. Fortunately it’s a problem which can be solved without plastic surgery – we offer laser re-growth therapy which has an 80% success rate, or a number of other hair replacement solutions which are totally discrete and undetectable.”
Another popular and detested sign of ageing is wrinkles and sun damage. Mainly occurring around the eyes, mouth and neck, wrinkles can form quite early on in adult life and deepen with age. However, it’s not just the face which is affected – wrinkly hands are a big concern, as is wrinkles on the neck and décolletage. Brown spots or sun spots can also make an appearance after years of sun damage, mainly on the hands. To try and prevent further wrinkles, Janis recommends using creams with collagen to boost fullness and elasticity of the skin.
Janis said, “It’s actually easier to prevent wrinkles rather than treat the ones you already have, so women (and men who want to fight ageing skin) should start using anti-ageing formulas as soon as their skin starts to show the first signs of wrinkles. Make sure your face, neck and hands are always well hydrated and use a moisturiser with SPF every single day. For mature skin, use collagen formulas as skin loses its natural collagen over time.”
As people grow older, it also becomes harder to shift any extra weight – thus many men acquire the embarrassing beer belly during middle age! Both women and men can put on extra pounds as they age. If you do your best to live a healthy lifestyle, and control alcohol intake, this could help, but most people will see a slight weight increase - then as you enter old age, you will lose muscle mass and become a lot weaker and slimmer.
