Wrinkles and Anti-ageing
What are wrinkles?
Wrinkles are the most obvious manifestation of skin aging and form mainly on the face, neck and upper chest. These are particularly fragile areas due to sun exposure.
Many factors can cause wrinkles. Natural aging and sun exposure are the two most prevalent ones. Wrinkles are the result of a combination of internal and external aging factors.
Internal factors of skin aging
- Natural cellular aging, which is usually genetically determined.
- Oxidative stress: our cells are constant preys to oxidative attacks from free radicals.
- Hormonal aging: The decrease in estrogen secretion is associated with a decrease in collagen and elastin production.
How to prevent wrinkles and rejuvenate your skin?
Sleep well, stay away from the sun, exercise, and follow Helwe's routine which can greatly help improve your skin through proper care routines, all of which can prevent the appearance of wrinkles.
External factors of skin aging
The sun: The harmful effects of excessive sun exposure are now widely recognized: UV rays slow down the production of elastin in the dermis, and weaken the cells of the epidermis.
Tobacco: The toxic products contained in cigarettes breaks down certain components of the dermis, especially hyaluronic acid.
Atmospheric pollution: It accelerates skin aging by reducing its immune system.
Stress: It increases the production of free radicals, responsible for the premature aging of cells.
Lack of hydration: Skin dehydration is an important factor in the appearance of wrinkles.
Lack of sleep: It accelerates skin aging the same way stress does.
