Skin Care External and Internal Challenges to The Skin Internal Ageing

Internal Ageing

This is a continuous process that begins in our 20's when skin cell production slows down. Premature aging begins in the 20's and may not show up until decades later. Possibly why so many young adults continue to ignore the warnings about sun damage to their skin. At this stage, collagen production begins to lessen and elastin begins to be less stretchy. Dead skin cell turnover is not as fast nor do they shed as easily.
Signs of this natural aging process might be :

  • Fine wrinkles on the facial area and neck.
  • Thin and transparent skin allowing blood vessels to show.
  • Loss of underlying fat, leading to sunken cheeks and eye sockets as well as loose sagging skin on the hands and neck.
  • Dry itchy skin.
  • Inability to sweat sufficiently to cool the skin.
  • Graying hair.
  • Loss of hair or unwanted hair in other places.

Hereditary factors determine how and when the ageing process begins and how fast it proceeds. Any one of these symptoms of ageing skin might occur first followed by others at any time. Some may show in people as early as their 20's while others may not show until 40 years of age.
