While our skin is as individual as we are and therefore ages differently from other people's skin depending on our genetics and lifestyle, the first signs of skin ageing normally start to appear at around the age of 30.
As the skin ages, its processes slow down and its structure weakens. The substances that keep the skin firm and smooth start to decline, and this is due to a combination of internal and external factors.
The most noticeable first signs of skin ageing are fine lines and wrinkles, which deepen with the passing of time. There is a range of ways to treat them and reduce their appearance. Some methods are invasive, whilst others are non-invasive. Some offer immediate benefits and others provide longer-term results.
