Physiology of Ageing After Teen Years

Getting Older

Timeline of the skin breakdown with age

When you GET OLDER

The skin is made up of three layers - each plays a vital role in maintaining healthy skin.

  1. The deepest layer is the hypodermis, made up of fatty tissue that cushions and supports the two layers of skin above it.
  2. The middle layer is the dermis. It contains collagen and elastin for form, shape and elasticity, which are constantly renewed in young, healthy skin. Old skin tends to saga and wrinkle because the collagen and elastin levels are reduced. This is also where the blood capillaries, hair follicles, sweat and oil glands are found. As we age, our oil glands become less active and our skin becomes drier and more prone to the formation of fine lines.
  3. The top layer or epidermis is where essential cell renewal takes place. In younger skin, cells are replaced about every 1 to 30 days; as we age, this process takes twice as long.

Top Tips

For Beautiful Skin

There are some key steps you can take to protect yourskin. You're protecting more than your beauty, you're protecting the body's largest organ. Follow these tips and tricks below to help your skin stay healthy and beautiful.

Cleanse Inside and Out

Start your day with a hot glass of water with lemon juice to assist your body in removing toxins. Drink plenty of water to hydrate your skin and offset the lack of humidity.

Protect Your skin

We are exposed to ultaviolet rays even in winter, so proect your skin with a good sunscreen. If you're on the beach or swimming, use an SPF of 30 or more.

Stay Healthy

Eat healthy and make sure you have five pieces of fruit or vegetables a day. Exercise regulary and get a good night's sleep.

Don't Smoke

Smoking is one of the main factors of premature ageing. It causes wrinkles and makes the skin's tiny blood vessels constrict so reducing the much-needed supply of oxygen.

Limit Your Exposure to Hot Water

Warm water will cleanse the skin just as well as hot water without the drying effect. End your bathing routine with a skin oil, lotion, or body butter.

Moisturise Well

Moisturising protects your skin's natural barrier, which holds moisture in your skin and keeps it soft and supple. It also protect from environmental stress.
