Healthy Ageing Skin Challenges

The skin ages in two ways: biological or intrinsic ageing, and environmental or extrinsic. A comprehensive skincare approach addresses both biological and environmental factors.

Healthy Ageing Skin Challenges :
• Production of collagen and elastin slows down a
dramatic 65% between ages 20 and 80. Every year
from age 20 on, collagen production slows by an
additional 1%.
• Thickness of the skin decreases 6% every
10 years.
• The sun causes 90%–95% of the wrinkles, lines,
as well as brown, red and white discolouration on
our bodies.

• Cell turnover slows which can lead to dehydration
and dryness.
• Repetitive movements, such as frowning,
squinting, or cigarette smoking can form
permanent wrinkles.
• Menopause can trigger a 30% reduction in
collagen and a dramatic increase in dryness
and dehydration.

• Gravity, along with a decrease in collagen and
elastin production, causes skin to sag.
• Biological or hereditary factors account for 10% of
skin’s ageing.
• Environmental factors such as smoking or secondhand
smoke, excessive alcohol use, and poor
nutrition can lead to visible signs of ageing such as
wrinkling, sagging, discolouration, pigmented skin
spots, thinning skin, and spidery lines.
• Free radicals from UV exposure, pollution,
smoking, stress, and normal metabolic processes
can cause changes that lead to the degradation of
skin’s collagen and elastin.
