Are you concerned about the effects of ageing on your appearance?
Wrinkles are part of the ageing process as, over time, the structural makeup of your skin alters. Skin slows down its ability to produce good collagen and elasticity from the late twenties. As the body ages, the appearance and characteristics of our skin change.
Age, hormones, sun exposure and smoking, all have a part to play, causing fine lines and wrinkles. Skin may feel slighter rougher and less elastic. The amount of Hyaluronic acid (HA), a natural substance produced by your skin, decreases with age, causing us to retain less water. The oil-producing (sebaceous) glands become less active and our skin becomes drier. The face also loses fat, so it looks less plump and smooth. As the ageing process progresses, we also find that everything ‘heads south’ and folds and lines appear that can be quite prominent.
