Why does the skin age?

Aging of the body is a natural process. With age, the metabolic activity of cells decreases, the body produces less and less collagen and hyaluronic acid, and the skin becomes less firm and elastic. As a result, wrinkles appear, skin tone becomes uneven. The environment and stress also influence the condition of the body. And although we will not stop aging, thanks to the development of medicine we know how these processes work and how we can delay their effects, while taking care of our appearance and well-being.

Don't forget sunscreen and vitamin C

One of the main causes of skin aging is UV radiation. Skin excessively exposed to sunlight loses its firmness and elasticity, and wrinkles and discoloration start to appear. This is why proper and consistent protection of the skin is so important. Creams with sunscreen are best in this case (definitely those with an SPF of 30 or 50). You should also remember to use cosmetics rich in vitamin C, which is a powerful antioxidant and fights free radicals that are released under the influence of UV radiation. Make sure that the cosmetics have a light consistency. This will allow you to apply them underneath your daily make-up.

Reach for reliable cosmetics

In order to prolong the youth of the skin, you also need the right cosmetics, which will have an aanti-aging effect when used regularly. It is good to particularly invest in those products which contain strong antioxidants, vitamins and substances that improve skin hydration. Make sure that your favorite cosmetics contain such ingredients as:
- hyaluronic acid – a natural component of our skin. It serves as a building material and also protects against water loss. Thanks to it, the skin will become smooth, hydrated and firm.
- vitamin E – a powerful antioxidant that elasticizes the skin and reduces wrinkles. It has anti-inflammatory properties, it strengthens the lipid barrier and prevents the epidermis from drying out.
- retinol – an antioxidant that accelerates the growth of new skin cells and stimulates skin renewal, supports skin regeneration and increases collagen and elastin production.
