Getting older with grace is something you hope will happen. Fortunately, female aging doesn’t need to be something you are scared of. Here are some of the biggest questions people have.
Will I Lose My Hair Like Men Do?
As you age, you might lose some hair. Hair loss is caused by different things. Yet hair comes away when you brush, but it will grow back in most cases. Good hair care will prevent brush-related hair loss. However, some women get female-pattern baldness as men do. FMB starts later in life, around the age of 70, but can occur earlier. There are also dermatological reasons for losing hair. Fortunately, you can use RGA hair growth treatment products if you lose your hair prematurely. Hair growth products work pretty well and can disguise hair loss.
Will I be Affected by Dementia as a Woman?
Dementia is a blanket term for multiple degenerative brain diseases like Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. Unfortunately, you aren’t safe from dementia, as it can strike anyone. However, it is more common in older people from 60 and above. A sad fact is that dementia-related illnesses affect more women than men. As a woman, your brain cells die off quicker than in men. The good news is that many studies conclude that exercise, a healthy diet, and mental stimulation can help prevent and delay dementia or make it more manageable.
Will Female Aging Make Me More Attractive?
Such a broad question with many possible answers. What is attractive to one person isn’t to another. Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder. However, as you age, you might feel less attractive as your skin displays wrinkles, your hair thins out, and you lose your tone. If what you consider attractive is looking great in a bikini, you can work at it with exercise and a healthy diet. Staying hydrated and looking after your skin also goes a long way in reducing the visible signs of aging. However, over 25% of young men are attracted to older women.
Can I Look Better Without Surgery?
You might be tempted to emulate the Hollywood look with expensive and painful surgery. But you really don’t need to. If you feel you need some extra work on your face, lips, and hips, there’s no need to go under the knife. Many facial treatments are available, such as HydraFacial, that work on your skin to remove oils and rejuvenate with creams and lotions. Oral is also an option that works using facial adaptation to lift and reset facial muscles. Then, of course, you have non-invasive options like dermal fillers like Botox and fat dissolving injections.
Will Menopause Change My Looks?
Menopause affects everyone differently. Nonetheless, it can bring noticeable changes to your skin and hair if it’s your first period after a year. Your skin becomes slack, dry, and thin during a decline in hormone levels. In addition, you may notice less hair on your scalp and more on your face. Fortunately, these effects can be reduced with proper care. For example, you can reduce the visibility of age spots with sunscreen. Laser hair removal is excellent for facial hair. And retinol or peptide skin products will help increase lift and combat the loss of collagen.
You don’t need to fear getting older. Of course, your body will change, but you can combat most problems with hair treatments, healthy food and exercise, and non-invasive treatments.
