Anti-aging / Sagging Skin Description

Anti-aging / Sagging Skin

Looking young and maintaining a youthful appearance is the mantra of todays society and youthful means a healthy lifestyle, healthy diet and a healthy cared for skin.

Premature aging is a sign of the times we live in and the way we live our lives.

The natural protective Hydrolipid mantle that protects our skin and helps it to keep looking younger longer diminishes, resulting in a less flexible skin that looses its elasticity and firmness.This loss of firmness is also influenced by our skins inability to retain sufficient moisture and the gradual weakening of the collagen and elastin fibres that support the skins natural tonicity. This results in a softening contour line and the formation of lines and wrinkles.In addition our metabolic functions slow down and further affect the skins vitality. This condition needs immediate attention.

Some of the major causes of a prematurely  aging skin are: unprotected exposure to the sun, excessive use of sunbeds, smoking, poor diet, stress and skincare products that contain parabens (chemical preservatives and other unecessary harmful ingredients).
