Wrinkles are depressions in the skin’s surface. They can be coarse or fine depending on how deep they are. Coarse wrinkles, appear on the forehead, outer corners of the eyes often referred to as crow’s feet. And as vertical lines around the mouth often referred to as laughter lines.
Most age related changes that occur in the skin happen in the dermis. This is due to changes in the cells responsible for collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are produced more slowly as we age which impacts the skins ability to repair itself and the skins proteins change affect the skin structure.
Dehydration and slow down of cellular restructuring add to the aging process of the skin. Preventing trans epidermal water loss (TEWL), hydration, moisturising and nourishment are all important parts of an anti-aging product.
