This unique and informative web site called, Aging With Beauty takes you through the factors involved in the continuous (and sometimes frightening) process of facial aging.
Usually, little changes begin around your late 20's where you may see signs of fine lines around your eyes and lips. You may also notice light blemishes, sun spots and slight changes in the texture of your skin. In your 30's you'll see the development of frown lines and folds. In your 40's you'll notice more defined frown lines and wrinkles as well as some thinning in your lips and a hollowing of your eyes and cheeks. In your mid 50's and beyond your frown lines and folds will deepen, your lips thin out even more and you'll notice more prominent hollowing out of eyes and cheeks and jaw. Here is an image of a woman who is 25, 35, 45, 65 and 75 years old.

One of the prime components of aging is the loss of collagen. Collagen is a protein (glue) that connects tissues that support your skin, bones, tendons, and cartilage. It binds these tissues together to help give your skin a firm structure, however, over time, your body produces less and less of it, hence facial sagging.
