Ageing Insights – what you need to know

With age, the skin goes through natural wear-and-tear, just like the rest of our bodies. But much of what we think of as natural aging is in fact due to sun exposure and other factors. That means it can be avoided, and it's never too late to start.

What is skin ageing

Under the skin is a fibre meshwork of collagen and elastin proteins that keeps the skin firm. When the skin is stretched, this protein matrix snaps it back into place.
Primary factors contributing to ageing skin are exposure to the sun and pollution, and loss of subcutaneous support (fatty tissue between your skin and muscle). Other factors that contribute to ageing of the skin include stress, gravity, daily facial movement, extreme weight fluctuation and irregular sleeping patterns.
