There are two different types of ageing. Instrinsic and extrinsic. Intrinsic ageing is genetically programmed and in part due to hormonal factors such as decline of estrogen and other hormones that deteriorate quality of the skin. This is why women age so drastically after menopause, unlike men who have a more steady ageing process. Extrinsic ageing is related to external factors such as UV exposure, pollution, smoking, diet, and this is the part we can do something about!
Ageing skin consist of:
• Wrinkles - fine lines and deeper lines
• Loss of bone structure
• Loss of volume
• Texture change (thickening or thinning of the skin)
• Colour change (dyschromia)
