It’s no secret that our bodies change so much as we begin to grow older. But for many, the skin experiences the most noticeable change. With ageing, the outer skin layer (technically known as the epidermis) begins to thin, and this is when fine lines and wrinkles start to appear. These lines can appear naturally, but can also occur due to daily factors such as facial movements, the environment and bad skincare products. In reality, there really is no avoiding ageing skin, but we can slow it down and ease some of the signs.
It’s the natural cycle of life that as we age, the number of cells containing pigment in our skin rapidly decreases. This results in ageing skin looking thinner, paler, and in extreme cases, almost translucent. Large, pigmented spots, including age spots or liver spots, may begin to appear in sun-exposed areas too.
Over time, our collagen production slows down which results in elastin fibres losing their elasticity and creating fine lines which can mean the skin loses its youthful appearance. But not to worry, there is a way to try and slow the ageing process and rejuvenate your skin.
Stimulating the remaining collagen production in your skin will help to improve the appearance and quality of the skin. But how exactly do you achieve that? Well, our wonderful SkinBase facials will help to kickstart the much-needed production of collagen. This will flood new collagen into your tired and dull-looking skin. The result will be a huge improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and a brighter complexion.
