What happens to mature skin?
To radiate your own unique light, it's crucial to maintain beautiful skin.
But age brings with it various skin changes.
In our 40s, skin undergoes sudden changes including dark spots, freckles, wrinkles, open pores, sagging and dryness.
These occur due to a decline in the function of the dermis.
When collagen and elastin levels in the dermis fall, skin loses surface elasticity resulting in deep wrinkles, loss of internal elasticity, and open pores.
The role of female hormones (oestrogen)
Decline in dermal function is strongly linked to the age-related decrease of female hormones (oestrogen).
Decreased oestrogen causes a decline in fibroblast function, leading to a dramatic fall in the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid.
This causes skin to lose tone and moisture.
Fine lines appear in dry skin that has lost tone.
This decrease in female hormones (oestrogen) begins in our 40s.
