Of course, when you are young you aren’t thinking of the effect the sun will have on your skin when you get older. Sometimes what you think are age spots appearing are actually freckles that have formed as a result of all this time in the sun.

Along with the sun, there are other elements that affect your skin, such as wind, pollution, make-up, cleaning chemicals and anything else that your skin has been exposed to over the years.
Don’t feel disheartened and think you will just have ‘old’ skin for the rest of your life, because there are many great skin care product that can help to slow down the effects of aging on the skin and even repair some of the damage.
If you really want to improve the texture, appearance and look of your skin, then be really careful about the skin care products that you buy. If you buy cheap and nasty products, or products that contain lots of chemicals, then you may actually make your skin worse.
It is also important to purchase skin care based on the type of skin that you have. Different skin care lotions are made to suit different skin types, so if you buy a cream for the wrong skin type then you may not get a very good result.
