Skin ageing results from biological changes in the skin. Barrier function is reduced causing an increase in water loss from the skin. Skin cell turnover slows and there are pigment production changes causing dryness and an uneven skin tone. In ageing skin collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid levels decrease leading to reduced firmness, elasticity and hydration. This results in fine lines, wrinkles, discolouration, dullness and decreased skin tone.

Ageing of the skin can be divided into two categories: intrinsic and extrinsic.

Intrinsic ageing, known as natural or chronological ageing, normally begins in our mid-20s and is determined by genetics.

Extrinsic ageing accounts for up to 90% of skin ageing and is largely controllable. The most common causes are:

  • Sun exposure – the major cause, often referred to as PHOTOAGEING
  • Pollution and environmental stressors
  • Lifestyle choices, such as smoking and alcohol consumption
  • Stress

The good news is that you can reverse some of this damage and prevent future negative effects on the skin.
