You can significantly delay the onset of ageing in your skin by making sensible lifestyle decisions and by using products that optimise the long-term health of your skin. Clients generally think of two primary sub-divisions of ageing – wrinkle reduction and skin firming. Both of these are linked to the structure of collagen and elastin in skin and these structures are in turn are influenced by a range of factors.
A rule of thumb – if your barrier function is impaired and your skin is in an inflammatory state the rate of ageing is doubled. So pay attention to optimising skin health before trying to treat symptoms.
