Understand Your Ageing Process

The ageing process of natural change begins in early adulthood. During early middle age, numerous physical functions begin to decline gradually. People don't grow old or become elderly at any specific age. Traditionally, age 65 has been designated as the start of old age.

Various body parts changes as you grow

As you grow older, your body goes through several changes, which are:


When you grow older, your nails become more brittle, grow slowly, and look dull. You can witness unusual growth, discolouration, and repeated breakage. You can also find that your hands are becoming drier day by day. This is the reason you should often wear protective gloves while doing cleaning tasks.


With normal ageing, you can face difficulty in focusing on things that are close up. You can grow more sensitive to light and have trouble adjusting to different light levels. Ageing also can affect your eye's lens, causing clouded vision.


Your mind also undergoes changes as you grow that may have minor effects on your mind or thinking capacity. For example, healthy old grown-ups might forget familiar names or terms or find it tough to multitask.


The ageing complication can include the detection of grey hairs, which is generally the earliest sign of ageing that people spot, and while it can come from as early as your 20s, it most generally begins in your 30s. Several scientific studies have concluded that environmental factors like stress can accelerate hair turning greyish beyond natural ageing. This is because tension causes the release of a norepinephrine chemical into hair follicles, which causes them to turn into pigment cells and leave the hair follicles. Without stem cells left to produce new pigment cells, new hair growth from the follicle turns grey.

Bones and muscles 

As you age, bones tend to shrink in size and density, weakening them and making them more vulnerable to fracture. You might sometimes even become a bit shorter. Muscles usually lose strength, flexibility and endurance and the factors that can affect your balance, coordination and strength.


With time, your skin thins and becomes less flexible and more sensitive, and fatty tissue below the skin decreases. You might spot that you bruise more easily. Lessened production of natural oils might make your skin drier. Creases, age spots and small growths called skin tags are also common.

Ways to reverse ageing

This can include multiple things like taking care of your skin by following skin care to eating a healthy diet. Dealing with ageing can include staying active, sleeping well and exercising daily.

Some people pray that they can stay youthful and young- looking always, but with time comes specific changes in our bodies. Your body and mind change as you grow, and although it can feel weird or unnerving to see yourself go through a transformation, it doesn’t have to be a process you fear. The cultural discussion around ageing has shifted dramatically in the last several years, with numerous women embracing and celebrating the ageing process.
