Ageing is probably the most easy “skin type” to explain, as we age so does our skin.
Unfortunately, we will never stop the skin from ageing, but that doesn’t mean we cannot push the appearance of aged skin further into the future. The aging process is influenced by many factors including genetics, lifestyle, and diet. Aside from genetics, lifestyle and diet can be altered to influence a more radiant skin, or it can accelerate the appearance of aged skin. Skincare is a great example of how lifestyle can influence the appearance of the skin in a positive way and act as a deterrent in the appearance of premature aging.
Anti-ageing skincare is complex, but it doesn’t have to be that way.
A well designed anti-ageing skincare routine targets the factors which contribute to the acceleration of premature aging. These factors include:
Lack of hydration: Water is everything in our skin…. From all biological reactions in our skin to hydrating collagen and elastin fibres.
Lack of exfoliation: Exfoliation from either physical or chemical sources kick start the natural process of desquamation (cell turnover) which as we age, slows down.
Lack of collagen stimulation: Collagen is a major target for any anti-ageing routine as collagen provides the structure of the skin. Just like desquamation, collagen synthesis naturally slows down as we age. Anti-ageing skincare targets the activation of new collagen through peptides and;
Lack of protective and stimulating nutrients: antioxidants
Anti- ageing skincare targets these factors to combat these concerns. The products also contain specialist ingredients. These are active ingredients like peptides, acids, antioxidants, enzymes and specific vitamins A,C, E.
Sun exposure is a great example of how the appearance of age skin is accelerated. The UV from the sun produces free radicals in the skin which can be neutralised by antioxidants and stop the free radicals damaging cell structures, however if the free radicals outnumber the antioxidants, damage may occur and accelerate the appearance of age. Slip, slop, slap is an excellent cause of action but this can be further benefited with skincare containing antioxidants.
