Seeing is believing…

By the time we reach 40, the signs of ageing and fatigue are really starting to show. In fact, our research has revealed that between the ages of 15 to 35, Caucasian skin loses nearly 14% of its elasticity.

Around 40, the support elements of the skin start to deteriorate in several ways:
- The body almost completely stops making collagen 
- Collagen bundles decrease by 1% per year
- Enzymes accelerate their attack on the skin structure, encouraging more pronounced wrinkles to emerge.

Why is this happening?

The sun is one of the biggest culprits. Repeated exposure to sunlight leads to pigmentation disorders in the form of spots known as photoageing. 

However, did you know that melanocytes, the cells responsible for making the pigment melanin, actually decrease with age, at a rate of about 8-10% per year? Research has actually shown that there is a direct link between the decrease of fibroblasts (the cells that make collagen) and the appearance of spots. And yep, you guessed it – fibroblast activity begins to significantly decrease from the age of 40.

Also around this age, the micro-capillaries responsible for skin microcirculation start to run low and lose elasticity. Signs of fatigue therefore leave their mark longer on the skin.
