Skin Deep

Beauty icons may have different hairstyles and features but the one thing they all have in common is a flawless complexion.  Aiming for beautiful skin is a worthy goal and there are many ways to achieve it.  When you look after your skin- by protecting it from the suns damaging rays, eating a healthy diet, sleeping well and using superior skin care products, it will reward you with a healthy glow.

How does the skin age?

There are two types of ageing; chronological aging (caused by the passage of time) is determined by our genes, look to your parents to see what the future holds.

  • Dry skin
  • Loss of elasticity and the appearance of wrinkles caused by expressions such as smiling, frowning and squinting.
  • Enlarged pores
  • Broken capillaries
  • Redistribution of fat (south)
  • Increased healing time

Some of the features of chronological aging will occur no matter how good you are, but there is plenty you can do to lessen the appearance of these signs.
The second type is a more sinister one, because it falls within your control and yet it causes the majority of the features of an aged skin.  This type of aging called extrinsic ageing is caused by environment and lifestyle factors such as smoking, excessive use of alcohol, poor nutrition and the big one: SUN EXPOSURE.  Because the damage is not inevitable, it is often referred to as premature aging.  More than 80% of the characteristics of premature aging can be attributed to sun exposure.

  • Increased roughness
  • Uneven pigmentation
  • Cross-hatched wrinkling
  • Broken capillaries
