Does Skin Colour Affect the Ageing Process?

Does Skin Colour Affect the Ageing Process? - By Bellabaci Cellulite Cupping Massage

Skin colour can affect the ageing process

Darker skinned people typically have less wrinkles than lighter skinned people. People who have darker skin have more pigment in their skin. This doesn’t mean that they won’t age. Eventually, we all age. It may just take them a little longer to do so. Of course poor lifestyle choices, such as smoking, drugs, unhealthy diet, lack of exercise and too much sun exposure can change things for anyone’s skin.

Does Darker Skin Wrinkle Less Than Lighter Skin?

As you get older, you either photo-age or you chronologically age. Photo-ageing is when you age prematurely. Chronological ageing refers to the natural ageing process. Photo-ageing is dependent on the choices you make, how well you take care of your body and genetics. Your skin colour is dependent on the amount of pigment your body produces.

When our skin becomes damaged from UV ray exposure, our body kicks in its natural defense, which is to produce more melanin. Melanin is what actually makes your skin darken. This is a protective mechanism to try to prevent further damage. And yes, every time you’re in the sun and you get a “sun tan”, this is actually a sign that your skin has become damaged and your body is trying to fight it. The darker the skin you have, the larger the pockets of melanosomes in your skin cells. These contain a sticky pigment called melanin.

People with very pale skin (fair skinned) produce very little to no melanin. Asian skins produce a yellowish type of pigment due to the large amounts of beta-carotene in their skins, which is also why they age so well as it is an anti-oxidants we need to obtain either through foods such as carrots or supplementation. There are two main types of melanin. Pheomelanin is found mainly in Caucasian-type skins, especially red-heads and African American skins produce a dark, thick melanin called eumelanin.

Not only do the size of the pockets in the skin cells differ, but so does the density of melanin within them. The melanin is packed very tightly in black skin; so much so that it absorbs and scatters more light, providing more protection from the ultraviolet rays of the sun.SkinGetALife

Protect your skin, no matter how dark or light your complexion. Using a broad-spectrum UVA and UVB sunscreen that is water-resistant daily and feeding your skin internally and topically is the way to go to age gracefully.

Treat yourself to our most famous Skin Get a Life Genie oil-lotion, packed with anti-ageing ingredients such as anti-oxidants, deep skin hydrators and organic lauric acid from the main carrier oil, Coconut Oil. Add the wrinkle-fighting benefits of the Bellabaci Facial Cups, our hand-squeezed vacuum suction massage cups and no wrinkle will stand a chance!

Connective Tissue – Keeping us together

Connective Tissue - Keeping us together - By Bellabaci Cellulite Cupping Massage

Ask any therapist about connective tissue, and you will immediately hear about collagen and elastin, or the formation of wrinkles or sagging skin when these tissues are no longer resilient. Much more can be said about Connective Tissue, and there are many types which serve very important functions throughout the body.

When you think about the word, Connective Tissue, you will understand that it implies a function which is “to connect”. That being said, some types of connective tissue are fluid-like, such as blood and lymph. Their function stays the same, for instance, in the case of blood, it has an extra-cellular matrix known as plasma and the red and white blood cells as well as platelets are “suspended” in this plasma by its connectivity.

The Body’s Main Types of Connective Tissues are:

Loose Connective tissue – found in vertebra and holds organs in place and attaches epithelial cells to their underlying tissues.
Collagenous Tissue – commonly known as collagen, elastin and reticular fibers and this type is responsible for tonicity.
Dense Connective Tissue – found mainly in joints and ligaments and these collagen fibers is responsible for joining muscles to bones.
Specialized Connective tissue – such as bone, blood, lymph and adipose tissue.

Whichever type of Connective Tissue is being discussed, the fact stands that certain processes needs to take place in order for it to serve its function properly, for the long term. For these processes to occur, such as the influx of oxygen and nutrients, removal of toxins etc, there needs to be a constant flow of blood and lymph, to and from these tissues.

It is just as important for structures such as bones, as new platelets need to be formed for it to be healthy and strong. Exercise is recommended for the most part, but not all patients or clients are able to commit to a regular exercise routine and some are not interested in a strenuous program.

Connective tissue normally degenerates through ageing and poor diet and/or lifestyle. The results can lead to many different and undesired conditions such as a decreased range of motion in a joint, pain, stiffness, hernias and also the visible signs of ageing for instance elastosis (loss of elasticity) and the formation of lines and wrinkles. Blood, and by that we mean fresh, well-oxygenated and nutrient-rich blood can really be seen as the elixir of life, and we must do our utmost to enhance its flow.circuflowkit

This is where Massage Therapists can play a vital role in a client’s quality of life, by providing that which is not possible for them to attain through exercise or proper self-care. Regular massage, whether it is superficial lymphatic drainage or deep tissue massage, is a sure-fire way to stimulate cell regeneration, improve blood circulation and to provide the workout the body needs to be agile and able to perform the daily tasks we expect of our bodies.
