Full-Body Checks for Seniors Help Detect Skin Conditions | #CornerInsure #SkinCare #Seniors #Health | It’s often our skin that gives away our age. As we get older, not only do we get wrinkles, but our skin actually thins and can look paler, even appear see-through in some spots.
It becomes less elastic and more fragile, subject to tears and bruising. Some of the chronic diseases that can affect us as we age, such as diabetes and heart disease, also affect our skin. But skin changes aside, new research has found that skin diseases affect more older people than not. In fact, more than three-quarters of people 70 years or older have at least one skin disease and 39% of those have three or more.
