Looking in the mirror, you see a face that’s different than it looked a few years ago. Why is that? What causes your skin to change?
Biology and genetics play a part, but the signs of aging are also driven by external factors like sun exposure, stress, smoking, and environmental pollutants that produce skin-damaging free radicals.
These harmful molecules cause oxidative stress and inflammation that accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin. Continual exposure to these environment aggressors does not allow the skin to be in an optimal healthy state. The result? Fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and loss of skin elasticity. While you notice the visible signs of aging, trouble continues to brew below the skin, which results in future damage that will eventually surface. This is why it is important to use a skin care line that addresses both the visible signs of aging as well as the causes.
