There are only a few guarantees in life and you already know that they are taxes and death, as well as aging. You cannot stop yourself from aging, and that also means you cannot freeze time. You can try different hacks by using anti-aging products or having plastic surgery and one of the most common causes of mid-life crises is the realization that you are not getting younger. That does not mean all men are going to ditch their wives, buy a sportscar, and date someone younger. Or that does not mean that all women when they have a midlife crisis have the yearning to have another baby before their time is over. People react to the reality of them aging differently, and some do not even go through any of that.
However, you will be surprised to know that some of your body parts age faster than others. One of the body parts that age quickly is your hands and the reason for that is your hands have constant exposure to the sun. The UV rays of the sun will cause rapid aging because they can cause you to stop producing elastin and collagen as easily as you did. That naturally happens regardless which is why you develop lines and wrinkles on your skin. However, you don’t usually wear gloves unless it is a cold winter day which is why your hands will age the most.
You will also see aging on your face which includes your hair, eyelids, as well as your neck and elbows. When elastin and collagen stop producing as often, that is when the aging kicks in. However, you will be surprised to learn what body part ages quicker than that, and that is your head.
Your Head Ages The Most Rapidly
Yes, the skin on your face ages quickly but your head is the body part that ages the most. Why does your head age faster than others? It boils down to what Einstein theorized and that was time elapses the quickest at higher elevations. Studies have been done on this theory and it has been found to be true. The findings are that you will age faster on a staircase the more you walk up the steps and you age the slowest at the bottom. Therefore, that is why your head ages the fastest because it is on the top of your body. Do you know what else this means? It means your feet age the slowest because they are on the bottom.
Your Feet Are The Body Parts That Age The Slowest
Your feet are the “youngest” parts of your body for several reasons. The one reason being that your feet are at the bottom at all times. Secondly, unless you wear sandals during the summer, most of the time your feet are covered and are protected from the sun as well as the other elements. The protections help keep your skin plump as you have more collagen and elastin production.
However, the difference between how quickly your head ages and how slow your feet age is small that you would not notice it at all. However, if you take a good look at the skin on your face compared to the skin on your feet, then you will see there is a difference. You can once again use anti-aging products and get plastic surgeries to help slow the aging down on your skin. You have to accept that no matter what you do, you will not be able to stop the aging process at all since aging is a guarantee you have in life.
