Signs of Ageing

As your skin ages and is exposed to UVA & UVB rays, the rate at which new skin cells develop slows down.

As a result, the balance of new skin cells versus old is changed. Additionally, collagen and elastin begin to break down causing the skin to loose resilience.

Causes of Ageing Skin

Skin ageing is characterised by features such as wrinkling, structural and functional changes in extracellular matrix components such as collagens and elastin, laxity, and rough-textured appearance.

Healthy Skin

Skin is the barrier that segregates the body from the outer environment.
It protects the body from water loss and microorganism infection. When healthy, the skin is typically:

  • Smooth
  • Firm
  • Evenly toned
  • Hydrated

Maintaining Healthy Skin

Healthy skin can be maintained through the use of:

  • Antioxidants – which defend against free radicals, and enhance the protection of your SPF
  • SPF – broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection daily
  • Retinoids – which increase cell turnover, unclogs pores, even out skin tone and reduce fine lines and wrinkles
