Ageing of the skin is the result of a combination of genetic and environmental factors and is accelerated by free radical damage from exposure to ultraviolet (UV) radiation, environmental air pollution, smoking and extreme temperatures. Poor nutrition and lifestyle also play a role in skin ageing.UV radiation results in a significant depletion of the skin's antioxidant substances. It is thought that supplemental antioxidants may help reduce skin damage resulting from free radical damage.Various components are involved in maintaining strength, elasticity and integrity of the skin: Collagen & elastin fibres provide strength and flexibility. As we age, elastin fibres fragment and much of the skin's elastic quality is lost. This, along with the loss of fat from under the skin, results in wrinkles. Age-related loss of collagen results in reduced skin tone.Glycosaminoglycans & proteoglycans are substances that are present in the matrix of the skin where they facilitate hydration. Age related changes in these substances result in fine lines and wrinkles.To repair damaged cells and tissues, the body needs proteins, vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to synthesize skin components to help nourish the deeper layers of the skin to help keep it healthy, support structural integrity and enhance skin elasticity.
