As the human face ages over time, changes occur in the skin, support structures and skeleton that result in visible aging. Both intrinsic and extrinsic factors affect the rate and degree in which these changes take place. Intrinsically, heredity, hormonal changes and bone structure play a part while skin care, tobacco use, sun exposure, nutrition and gravity are extrinsic contributions you can help control. Specifically, fat loss and downward shifting as well as bone and collagen loss result in loose, sagging skin and fine lines and wrinkles. It happens to us all.
A literature review confirms that physical attractiveness affords a variety of benefits including an increase in self-esteem, choice of mates and income.
