What are the Characteristics of Aging Skin?
As we age, so does our skin, right from when we are born. But how do we stop our skin from aging and making us look ‘older’?
Aging can be broken down into intrinsic and extrinsic aging.
Intrinsic aging is the natural process the body undergoes as we grow older, whereas extrinsic aging is a result of lifestyle and environmental factors such as sun-damage, ultraviolet radiation, air pollution, among others. Of all extrinsic causes, radiation from sunlight has the most widespread documentation of its negative effects on the skin. Because of this, extrinsic aging is often referred to as photoaging.
You may notice that you skin changes as you age. Wrinkles, age spots and dryness - all add years to one’s age. Intrinsic aging is best understood as a steady decline in collagen and elastin production. This causes the skin to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to snap back after stretching, making it look less plump and smooth.
When these properties start to diminish—our complexion begins to sag, dull and eventually fine lines and wrinkles begin to appear. This can happen as early as the age of 20.
Simultaneously, the rate of exfoliation also deteriorates with dead skin cells collecting on the skin giving it a dull complexion.
How do we Restore Aging Skin?
Intrinsic aging is an inevitable process that occurs naturally and is affected by free radicals, hormonal shifts and the body's inability to perfectly repair skin damage. Free radicals are simply incomplete cells that trigger damage to our epidermis. When this happens, our skin loses luster and appears to look ‘older’. Environmental factors such as smog, smoke, sunlight, and stress are common sources of free radicals.
Applying antioxidants topically through nourishing anti - aging or age defying products can help to replenish what the aging process takes out helping to reveal younger and healthier looking skin.
