What happens as we get older?
Dozens of changes take place in your face as you get older.
When we are young, fat is distributed evenly and allows the facial structures to maintain itself in pockets. With age, features that were formerly round may sink, and skin that was smooth and tight gets wrinkles and folds.
Finer wrinkles are usually attributed to sun damage, smoking, and natural degeneration of elements of the skin that keep it healthy.
With your teeth, it is natural for your teeth to get yellower due to the aging process.

What can I do at home to assist facial aging?
At home, we can do the following things to fight aging:
Sun protection. Protecting your face from the sun is the single best way of keeping it youthful. Using sunscreen and making sure you have clothing that covers your skin where appropriate is important for reducing wrinkles in the long term.
Creams and lotions. Moisturizers soothe dry skin and may temporarily make wrinkles less noticeable.
Stress causes a person to frown quite a bit, which causes temporary forehead lines. Temporary lines can eventually turn into permanent lines. As the human body ages, our skin loses its elasticity and our muscles become weaker.
Smoking. While the skin wrinkles may not be reversible, you can prevent the worsening of wrinkling by quitting smoking now. Smoking is also not great for the colour of your teeth.
