The passage of time changes our bodies and deepens the lines on our faces. Skin aging is, undoubtedly, the most visible element, and therefore becomes a matter of great concern to an individual.
How can we prevent premature skin aging? For both men and women, aging is a natural process. If, in the first quarter of our life, we cannot fight against this phenomenon.
From the second quarter (25-50 years), our immune system will weaken and no longer allow us to defend ourselves against the attack of germs.
With age, the effectiveness of the body’s defense system decreases, and our need for antioxidants increases. Environmental factors also accelerate the process of aging.
Aging is marked by a loss of tissue elasticity (loss of the ability to return to its original shape after stretching), changes in the texture of the skin (thickening or thinning), and the appearance of superficial abnormalities (tiny blood vessels, dark spots).
Every year, the structural changes of the skin and the efficiency of cellular functions slow down due to our biological age. The youthful glow of the skin fades to give way to a duller complexion, a sign of youth.
Tobacco, alcohol, medications, malnutrition, diseases, lack of sleep, stress, pollution, and an insufficient skincare routine are some external elements that influence the health of our skin.
The sun is responsible for premature skin aging. Under UV radiation, free radicals, the skin’s main enemies, appear in more significant quantities and create damage that accelerates skin aging. UV rays are responsible for 80% of skin aging.
