Expression lines, frown lines, crow's feet... deep or superficial, wrinkles remind us of the passage of time! But how do they form? Due to age, hormonal changes and numerous environmental factors, the production of collagen, elastin and hyaluronic acid decreases. This directly affects skin quality and contributes to the appearance of wrinkles.
Collagen is a protein whose function is to preserve the structure of the skin. With age, cells produce less collagen and skin loses its firmness.
As its name suggests, elastin acts like a spring, bringing all its elasticity to the skin.
Over time, collagen and elastin degrade as their production decreases. Thus, repeated skin movements gradually cause "breaks", defining folds that can become permanent, also known as wrinkles.
As for hyaluronic acid, like a sponge, it helps retain water in our epidermis and plays a key role in the skin's elasticity. Without this retention capacity, skin tends to dry out, amplifying its loss of resistance and elasticity. Drier skin becomes more fragile, loses its natural bounce and becomes more prone to wrinkles and other signs of skin aging.
The main factors in the appearance of wrinkles and the gestures to be adopted
It is important to note that age is not the only factor that promotes the appearance of wrinkles. Also to be cited are external aggressions such as the sun, pollution but also temperature variations. Lifestyle and poorly adapted skin treatment cares can also accelerate skin ageing. This is why it is important to adopt the right gestures on a daily basis in order to preserve the youthfulness of the skin.
As a first step, we recommend adopting a healthy lifestyle coupled with a varied diet. Playing sports and consuming products rich in omega-3 and antioxidants help protect the skin from the inside and eliminate toxins, for a more radiant skin. Give preference to vegetable oils such as olive, sunflower or coconut oil.
It can never be said enough: Hydration is the key to healthy skin. This is why, in addition to using a moisturizer, it's recommended that you drink plenty of water to keep skin tissues hydrated and prevent dehydration.
Finally, don't neglect regular cleansing of the skin in order to eliminate all impurities, toxins and traces of pollution that can clog the skin. Follow with the use of anti-ageing skin care products adapted to your skin type and protect your skin from aggressions such as the sun or the cold (see article Skin care rituals for beautiful skin in autumn or winter).
