Skin Aging: Wrinkle & Pigmentation
Skin aging appears in many different forms, intensities, and different progression rates. Changes to your skin usually include loss of laxity and wrinkle formation, rough-texture and changes in smoothness, and finally, appearance of pigmented spots specially in sun exposed areas.
Face, hands, and decolletage areas are more prone to signs and symptoms of aging, but all skin parts may suffer from aging as well.
As we get older, the internal processes of our body tend to slow down. In the skin, the obvious changes happen to collagen (laxity) and cells proliferation; in other words, skin auto-renewal becomes remarkably slower and damages start to accumulate. It is almost impossible for humans to avoid these changes, one may actually be able to embrace aging, but there are few ways to reduce the physical signs of aging, especially premature aging, in order to retain a healthy and beautiful skin.
What might accelerate your skin aging process?
There are a few factors which can directly affect your skin and cause wrinkling:
Sun exposure and tanning expose our skin to UV light which penetrates the skin with and cause damages to DNA and other structures like collagen and melanocyte cells (that are responsible about pigment formation).
You can always use physical sun protection like hats, but sunscreen products are essential and handy for daily use and prolonged sun exposure. We will be more than happy to see you having a look at our collection of sunscreens.
Cigarettes contain toxin substances and tobacco, which can cause oxidative stress in the body. Smoking can lead to vasoconstriction, which restricts the blood supply to skin cells. These factors cause dryness of the skin, wrinkling, and several other prominent signs of skin-aging.
Here we suggest you a great place to start, for you or for your loved ones..
Environmental pollutants can also trigger skin conditions and wrinkling. Skin barriers can come in contact with the pollutants and toxins present in the atmosphere.

Many cosmetic products claim to slow down aging or improve its signs and symptoms. Here we enlist some of the powerful ingredients that are scientifically proved to improve signs of aging.
