What is Skin Ageing?

Our skin changes as we age. Skin ageing is a multifactorial process that involves both genetic factors and hormonal origin as well as environmental factors and nutritional nature. The natural ageing process (chrono ageing) normally begins in our mid-20s. The gradual loss of skin elasticity in the skin causes the skin to sag. Sun-exposed aged skin (photoageing) is caused by sun exposure. The skin changes such as wrinkles, age spots, pigmentation and changes in skin tone are the results of exposure to sunlight.

How It Affects Your Body

Chrono-ageing affects the skin structures and causes the skin to lose elasticity. It is mainly characterized by dry skin, dullness, lack of elasticity, and fine wrinkles. The gradual loss of skin elasticity in the skin causes the skin to sag. This results in the inner skin layer (dermis) becoming thinner and less able to retain moisture, less efficient in secreting oil and slower to heal.

On the other hand, photo-ageing, known as sun-exposed aged skin, is caused by prolonging and repeated sun exposure. The ultraviolet from the sun can penetrate the skin layers, by speeding up the breakdown of skin collagen by promoting the production of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and leading to tissue destruction. As a result, this changes the skin structures and tones and develops wrinkles, age spots and pigmentation.

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Skincare Recommendations:

  1. Routinely apply daily skin care to encourage skin regeneration, elasticity, smoothness, and improve skin condition.
  2. Apply sunscreen to reduce skin damage caused by exposure to UV radiation.
  3. Apply cream with niacinamide (vitamin B3) as it can regulate cell metabolism and regeneration.
  4. Apply topical vitamin A (retinol) as it induces the biosynthesis of collagen and slows down the breakdown of collagen.
  5. Topical application of vitamin C and E are effective in providing anti-oxidative protection to skin.
  6. Topical application of green tea polyphenols before UV exposure may reduce DNA damage of the skin.
  7. Topical application of folic acid and creatine containing formulation has showed improvement in collagen metabolism and improved firmness of the skin.
