These Are the Sneaky Warning Signs That Your Skin Is Aging Too Fast

In the realm of preventative skincare, our 20s are somehow simultaneously breezy and tricky—while we don't necessarily have to take an active role in reversing fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging, it's also never a bad idea to start thinking ahead. But that's exactly it—we can't peer into the future, so how do we know if we're doing it right if we can't see that we are? Do we just dutifully apply our products and practice good skin habits, blindly hoping that in 10 years' time, it will have been enough?

It turns out our complexions might offer more warning signals than we initially thought. We consulted a panel of experts to find out exactly how we can figure out if our skin is aging too fast, and the signs are pretty sneaky. But it's not all bad news—at our age, knowledge is power, and it's still early enough to adjust our habits accordingly and reap the benefits. 

Keep reading to see the surprising signs of early aging.

#1. Dark Spots
Have you noticed an onset of dark spots? Sun spots in your late 20s or early 30s should be a wake-up call. If you are getting them that early, it means you've had significant amounts of sun exposure. While you can't undo the past, you certainly can minimize the damage and slow down the skin's aging process. Since sun worsens all forms of pigmentation, proper protection (if not avoidance) is key to regaining a luminous complexion. 

If the spots are new and superficial, skincare products like the Sloane Inc Lightening Complexion Corrector can help lighten existing spots, reduce new pigment production and boost your overall glow. Its powerful holistic lighteners that synergistically work to fade discoloration caused by sun damage, blemishes & scarring.

A scoop a day keeps the doctor (and the pigment spots and dullness) away.

For trouble spots that are deeper or have been hanging around for awhile, additional professional treatments such as Glamour Peel, IPL,Pigment Laser or Fraxel Light laser, is often necessary to reach and erase stubborn stains.

#2. Wrinkles along your cheeks and a loose jawline.
People develop wrinkles just from movement, so that's not really a sign of aging poorly. But if fine lines and wrinkles appear in the middle of the cheeks or the jawline sags in the twenties or thirties, it is. The middle of the cheeks and the jawline show sun damage and wrinkles early on. To minimize this, we recommend Ultherapy, a treatment that incorporates ultrasound technology to firm up and tighten skin. Although multiple sessions are needed, with time, new collagen and elastin are formed to minimize wrinkles and bagging. 

#3. Your skin is itchier than usual.
With aging, comes a loss of moisture. The cell membranes become more porous, contributing to dryness and the crepe-y look. Consequently, skin tends to become itchy and more sensitive. Ceramides will help repair skin and can increase hydration and moisture in the skin. It is also suitable for sensitive skin.
