Skin ageing is expressed by the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, a less radiant complexion, and a loss of firmness and elasticity of the skin.
This is due to the slowing down of the metabolism of the epidermis over time, depending on the genetic make-up and lifestyle of each individual. The slowing down of the skin’s metabolism is also caused by the aggression of the epidermis by external, environmental factors that accelerate ageing, such as exposure to ultra-violet rays, stress, lack of sleep, pollution, etc.
What are the symptoms of mature skin?
Mature skin has visible symptoms, but can also show more subtle signs.
Skin cells renew themselves more slowly with age, slowing down the production of lipids on the skin’s surface and the restoration of its lipid barrier.
As a result, the epidermis can become drier and its ability to heal is weakened.
The production of collagen, which is responsible for the skin’s elasticity, also decreases over time. As a result, the lower layers of the skin become less structured, leading to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the surface.
