From around the age of 25 the first signs of ageing start to become apparent on the surface of the skin. Fine lines appear first, and over time wrinkles, a loss of volume and a loss of elasticity become noticeable.
Our skin ages for a variety of different reasons. Many of the causes of skin ageing are entirely natural and cannot be altered. There are, however, several factors that can cause skin to age prematurely, and these can be influenced. An holistic approach to lifestyle and skincare can help to reduce the visible signs of skin ageing and prevent premature skin ageing.
Understanding the way that internal and external factors affect the skin’s structure and function can help to inform choices about treatment and care.
