Effects of Aging Skin
As we age and increase our environmental exposure to UV and pollutants, several things happen that break down skin.
- The skin produces less oil causing dehydration and thinning of the epidermis layer.
- UV exposure along with the free radicals in our system destroy collagen and connective tissue causing liver spots, wrinkles, and loss of skin elasticity.
- The blood vessels in the skin decrease causing fewer nutrients being delivered to the skin and loss of the youthful glow.
