When your skin is protected from the sun and is healthy you can reduce the effects of aging. There are of course other factors to maintaining healthy skin and these are your life-style choices such as: healthy balanced diet extra supplements not smoking, and daily exercise. Aging skin happens to all of us and is the result of generic programming and environmental outside influences.
Wrinkles are the effect of the reduction in muscle mass and skin thickness. Skin starts to lose elasticity and can become dehydrated.
Hyperpigigmentation excessive pigmentation on the skin and can be due to over exposure to the sun (UV exposure). Also hormones, pregnancy and certain medications can play a part.
Up until the age of 35-40 years old our skin is kept hydrated by hyaluronic acid, which is responsibility for keeping your skins moisture balance. After 40 the hyaluronic acid reduces and this is what causes the skin to dehydrate.
As we age our cells slow down in their renewal process. This causes skin to look dull and you may notice your skin starting to get thicker. Cell renewal can take between 25-35 days to renew during your middle age and 35-60 days for more mature skin.
