Skin is the largest organ in your body that acts as a barrier between you and the external elements. Apart from its aesthetic significance, your skin protects your body from fatal dehydration, harmful elements, infections and diseases. Due to the constant exposure to various external aggressors, skin is usually the first organ to show the signs of ageing.
Skin Ageing Process
As part of the body's defense mechanism, your skin is exposed to both intrinsic and extrinsic factors that influence the skin ageing process.
Intrinsic Skin Ageing
Intrinsic skin ageing is mainly determined by genes and you have less control on it. Skin colour is one of the examples of genetic condition that plays a crucial role in skin ageing. People with darker skin tone, genetically have more melanin to help protect their skin against UV-induced ageing and cancer, better than those with pale skin tone. The skin around the eyes is particularly more-prone to signs of ageing such as wrinkles, lines and uv-induced hyperpigmentation.
To reduce and help prevent the signs of ageing around the eyes and lips, use Bio-Collagen Eye and Lip Cream. This intensive anti-wrinkle cream is super-charged with powerful anti-ageing ingredients yet it is very gentle on the skin. Apply to the skin around the eyes every morning and evening to reduce the signs of tiredness, dark circles, puffiness and ageing. Apply to your lips before lipstick or as frequently as needed to protect your lips from dryness and premature skin ageing.
Extrinsic Skin Ageing
Apart from genes, your skin ageing process is also influenced by the external factors such as UV radiation, diets, harsh weather and pollution.
Unlike intrinsic skin ageing, you can have more control on the extrinsic skin ageing process. Limiting the exposure to the extrinsic ageing factors will help slow down the appearance of signs of ageing.
Oxidative Stress, Inflammation, DNA Damage and Glycation speed up the skin's ageing process. Dry skin tends to age faster due to its weaker skin's lipid barriers. To help protect dry skin from various external ageing factors, apply Nano Gold Nourishing Cream twice a day, in the morning and at night. This ultra rejuvenating cream has been formulated with 24-karat nano gold particles, stabilised vitamin E, saccharide isomerate, blue chamomile and frankincense to restore skin's lipid barriers, strengthen skin's defense mechanism and reduce various signs of ageing.
