Learn how the skin ages

Visibly as our skin ages we see it getting thinner, sagging, and wrinkling. Underneath the visible changes are a variety of changes. The epidermis thins. Pigment producing cells decrease, but the few that remain increase in size. This makes the skin appear translucent with the possibility of large pigmented spots. Sun exposure over time causes the skin’s strength and elasticity to decrease. Blood vessels in the dermis become more fragile increasing the chances of bruising. Generally our skin becomes dryer and the insulating fat layer under our skin decreases making it harder to maintain body temperature and easier to damage our skin. Aged skin heals more slowly than younger skin. An anti-aging component added to our skin care routine can help reverse these changes.
