Wrinkles


The Problem:

External factors:

  • Over-exposure to the sun's rays can cause premature ageing. The sun's ultraviolet rays (UVA and UVB) cause 90% of skin ageing, and this can occur even when you're in your 20s.
  • Other factors that leads to aging at an accelerated pace include inadequate rest, smoking, drinking, stress, air pollution, casting of facial expressions like smiling, laughing, squinting and frowning etc.
  • A drastic weight loss can also cause wrinkles, due to the lack of support from healthy fat cells underneath the skin's surface, causing the person to look gaunt, and the skin to sag.
  • Smokers have 5 times more wrinkles than non-smokers. These are attributed to free radicals found in tobacco smoke; which accelerates the ageing process. Smokers in their 40s find that they look older and more haggard than non-smokers in their 60s.
  • Gravity can also bring about sagging, loosening the skin and making ageing more apparent.

Internal factors:

  • As ageing sets in, the metabolic rate starts to lag, and reacts to our body functions slower than usual. Hormonal secretions will slacken; skin cells will be less active and reproduces more slowly. The dermis layer becomes thinner, and fat cells start to shrink, causing the skin to lose elasticity, aggravating the ageing process.
  • At this time, the collagen and Elastin Fiber on the dermis layer lose its inert ability to support the skin structure, causing the first signs of wrinkles to appear. The skin will devitalize gradually and at the same time, sagging will occur.
