10 Subtle Body Details That Can Reveal Your Real Age
People can be made aware of your real age by the look of your armpits as well. As you start growing older it is the skin in your armpits tends to be very sensitive and can lose its elasticity quite early on.
To prevent sagging of your underarm skin you need to exercise your shoulders. Choosing exercises that tone your triceps like push-ups is excellent for tightening the skin in that area.
As per studies, a woman’s pelvis gets narrower with age. While the bones in a woman’s pelvis grows when a woman is still young the process becomes reversed when she reaches fertility. When a woman reaches the age of 70 years, her pelvis may be 8% narrower than that of a middle-aged woman.
Nothing can be done to stop this process, but you can keep your bones healthy for as long as possible. This can be done by eating a diet high in protein and calcium. You can even opt for regular strength training.
The skin on your knees keeps stretching constantly when you walk and move around. But, the ligaments and muscles in your knee also get weaker with age and this affects the look of your legs. It even causes pain and discomfort in your leg joints.
At present there is no way to make your knees look younger. You can still slow down their aging by strengthening the muscles in that area with exercises like squats or by going for regular walks and cycling.
The outermost layer of the skin- the stratum corneum becomes thicker due to changes in your body’s hormones brought about by aging. the subcutaneous tissue also becomes thinner which results in the skin becoming thinner and drier. This is prominently visible in the feet like the heels where the skin becomes flaky, rough and cracked.
Moisturizing the skin in that area will help prevent it from getting tighter and flaking. But, if you have corns and calluses, then it is advisable to visit an orthopedist, or cosmetologist.
