How does our skin Age?

How your skin ages depends on a variety of factors: your lifestyle, habits, diet as well as
your genes. As you grow older, your skin ages and becomes slacker. Your skin’s appearance becomesspotted, with wrinkles. This can be referred to as your natural skin ageing.

Environmental factors such as pollution and exposure to sunlight are the biggest culprits of ‘premature skin ageing’. The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light damages elastin fibers in the skin and free radicals can cause damage to skin cells. This causes the skin to prematurely sag, stretch and lose its ability to regain its position. Both natural skin ageing and premature ageing
are responsible for fine lines, wrinkles, age spots and sagging skin. Protecting your skin from the sun and making lifestyle changes will result in healthier and better-looking skin.
