Ageing is a natural part of life, so let’s be proud of the fine lines that tell the story of a life well lived. However, if targeting any signs of ageing is a skin goal for you, then read on as the Biologi experts shed the light on ageing.
The causes of ageing are twofold; natural (genetic) ageing and external (or extrinsic) ageing. Did you know that external ageing accounts for increased ageing and ageing concerns?
What are the causes of external ageing?
Beware the sun! Overexposure to the damaging rays of the sun will result in accelerated ageing. Skin enzymes can become activated by UV exposure which will start to break down collagen and elastin in our skin. Always introduce a SPF to your skin every day of the year even if is cloudy.
Oxidative stress. Free radicals and antioxidants are a part of every person’s normal functioning body but when they are out of balance with other can cause oxidative stress, a cause of accelerate ageing and inflammation. As we age our own bodies antioxidants also decrease! Free radicals are unstable unpaired molecules that cause damage when they are unpaired and antioxidants are vital in helping to quench or donate an electron, making them stable. So, build up the antioxidant protection barrier in your skin to increase the cellular health by introducing antioxidant rich skincare.
Inflammation. Internal inflammation such as medications, immunity, gut and general health can have an effect on accelerated ageing. External inflammation like the sun, skin reactions, infection and continued use of incorrect harsh products that cause irritation also play a part and affect the way we age.
Glycation. Glycation simply explained, is a chemical reaction between too much sugar in our body attaching to fats and amino proteins which causes AGEs – Advanced Glycation End Products, in a nutshell, ageing! Collagen and Elastin are particularly vulnerable because sugars really like these important proteins and when they attach can cause cross linking, stiffness and malformation in collagen and a decrease in connective tissue elasticity.
