What is skin-ageing?
Over time we all age and the face, neck and hands are the biggest giveaway as the sun, environmental damage and pollutants catch up with us in the form of wrinkles.
During our younger years, the skin is great at stretching and holding in moisture, thanks to elastin fibres and collagen protein which help to keep the skin young. However, over time, the skin loses both elastin and collagen, making the skin thinner and unable to hold moisture. The fat from beneath the skin, which gives it a plump appearance is lost and sagging and wrinkles begin to form.
How can we prevent it?
Ageing is a natural process and the rate at which you age, depends on your lifestyle and genes. Taking good care of your skin from an early age can prolong the process but eventually, everyone will have at least a few lines and wrinkles.
Following the guidelines below will help to maintain healthy skin.
1. Bear in mind that tanning beds are as damaging as the UV rays from the sun – try fake tan.
2.Smoking robs your skin of precious moisture which is essential for healthy, youthful skin.
3. Drinking plenty of water keeps your skin hydrated and a good moisturiser will help to maintain this.
4. Don’t spend too much time in direct sunlight especially between 11am and 3pm when the UV rays are most powerful. Sun blocks containing zinc oxide help to block out damaging UV rays.
