Reduction In Cell Renewal
As we age our skin slows down the production of cells and unfortunately this happens around the age of 25. This production of cells is the natural exfoliation that our bodies go through and is why babies have extremely smooth skin. As our bodies slow down our skin becomes dull and rougher in texture.
Less Collagen Being Produced
When we reach 30 our body starts to slow down the production of collagen. Collagen is what helps our skin stay plump. This decrease is then often sped up by a variety of factors like smoking, stress and even over exposure to the sun.
Patchy & UnevenSkin
As we age our skin starts to break down which then leads to problems like uneven skin colouring. Our capillaries also start to break which leads to more unevenness. These issues are often caused by too much exposure to the sun – often by the time we turn 20. The UV rays in the sun weaken and then break our cells. This damage causes our cells to over compensate by producing excess pigment which leads to the uneven spread of colour.
Our Skin Loses Its Moisture
Our skin naturally holds a lot of moisture. As we get older we produce less hyaluronic acid and less moisture meaning that our skin feels generally malnourished and less healthy.
As we age our body’s level of hormones changes. This can lead to our skin starting to sag or thin. This is caused by the body losing its natural levels of fat and our muscles starting to break down.
