Aging is a fact of life. As time marches on, so do the wrinkles, sagging skin and discolorations that show the world just how long a person has been on this earth. And unfortunately, that process of aging extends to all parts of the body, including the delicate penis skin. The good news is that close attention to excellent penis care can help a man keep his penis skin looking soft, supple and smooth - and help alleviate several of the tell-tale signs of penis aging.

As the body ages, several things happen that might prove unsightly. The aforementioned wrinkles are one very common problem that affects everyone - yes, even those in Hollywood, no matter how much plastic surgery they might have. Eventually everyone gets wrinkles, and for men, those wrinkles happen on the penis as well. Over time the skin stretches and changes in elasticity, leaving it much ‘floppier.’ It might even feel as though there is more skin around the penis and testicles than ever before.

Discolorations and other penis skin maladies can also occur with age. Darkened spots on the penis might be nothing more than changes in melanin production over time, but it can still be enough to make a man feel older than his years. As the penis skin thins with age, it is also more likely to encounter problems with friction, such as penis irritation and rashes. These might linger longer than usual as a man gets older, leading to what seems like a constant dance of tiny injuries, all in various stages of the healing process.

Finally, there is the question of tiny blood vessels under the penis skin. As a man gets older, these blood vessels might gradually enlarge or change in shape. Occasionally they might become more prominent, or might even lead to tiny red spots on the penis skin.

Fighting the signs of penis aging

The good news is that most of these issues with penis skin and aging can be fought, so that a man could even wind up with a penis that looks much younger than it really is. Here are a few helpful tips to get a man started on the road to eternal youth.

1. Wear proper underwear. Though a man should never wear underwear that is too tight, wearing roomy boxers might allow gravity to work too hard on the penis skin. Go with briefs that have some support but not enough to keep the penis from ‘breathing’ a bit.

2. Use lubrication. Though dry masturbation might feel good for some, it can contribute to eventual penis damage, including thinner skin. Lubrication can help ensure the penis skin stays healthy no matter the man’s age.

3. Plan for extended sessions. As a man gets older, it might take more effort to achieve an erection or reach climax. Be prepared for this by honing foreplay skills. In addition, a man could speak to his doctor about certain medications that help him get it up and keep it up.

4. Lose weight. A man who is a bit overweight might find that his penis doesn’t seem quite as robust as it once was. That’s because the body has a natural ‘fat pad’ at the base of the penis, and that area retains any extra weight a man might put on over the years.

Use an excellent penis health crème

Finally, a man can fight the signs of penis aging by applying a powerful penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) directly to the skin. The application of a crème that contains retinol’s anti-aging properties, as well as antioxidants that promise to fight free radicals is best. These ingredients, in addition to vitamins D and C in a smooth Shea butter base, can help ensure the best penis skin possible - and of course, can help alleviate the signs of aging.
