Aging Skin

As we age, internal and external factors influence the appearance and function of our skin. Over time, the dermis (the deeper layers of skin) holds less water and the collagen network begins to diminish, causing skin to lose its elasticity and tone, resulting in wrinkles. Dry skin commonly occurs, which can lead to itchy skin.

External factors also affect aging skin. Years of sun exposure can damage your skin, causing a breakdown in collagen and loss of water, resulting in wrinkles, sagging skin and discolorations. And prolonged, long-term exposure to the sun can also cause premature discolorations and wrinkles in young people. Signs of skin aging are most pronounced in individuals with fair skin, on routinely exposed parts of the body such as the face, the backs of hands and the neck, and in people more often exposed to strong sunlight.

 

CARE & TREATMENT

The good news is that healthy skin looks beautiful, no matter what your age. Taking steps to keep your skin healthy and prevent the signs of skin aging is the path to beautiful skin. Sun protection is one of the easiest and most effective ways to keep skin youthful and healthy looking. Use sunscreen, or a moisturizer containing sunscreen, every day of the year. Look for products that provide at least SPF 15 protection, although SPF 30 is an even better choice. The best products offer “broad spectrum” protection, meaning that they protect you from both UVA and UVB rays.

Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles is another way to combat the signs of aging. Look for products with antioxidants and buffered hydroxy acids, which are designed to gently combat signs of aging while improving skin’s appearance and health.
