Over the course of time, various factors contribute to the appearance of aging skin, including a thinning of the epidermis, loss of collagen and elastin, loss of fat tissue, as well as bone shrinkage. Together these factors compromise the integrity of the skin and cause the formation of wrinkles and sagging skin.
SIGNS OF AGING SKIN:
• Fine lines and wrinkles
• Lax skin
• Dehydrated skin
• Rough texture
• Uneven skin tone
• Transparent, thin skin
While wrinkles are a natural part of aging, there are various ways we can slow the aging process and prolong youthful skin.
Healthy skin comes from within, which makes it crucial to adopt a healthy diet and lifestyle. Our regular diet should be full of vitamins and antioxidants to fight oxidative stress and prevent premature aging. Regular exercise is recommended to help regulate blood circulation as well as to reduce stress which is found to damage the DNA and shorten the lifespan of skin cells.
It is also very important to implement a proper skincare routine to feed the skin with proper vitamins, antioxidants, peptides and growth factors to promote healthy, beautiful-looking skin. At GMA, we highly recommend our patients to incorporate vitamins A, C & E – the main ingredients in our Environ AVST 1 moisturiser – in their skincare to normalize the skin’s functions and maintain skin health. Such vitamins and active ingredients are essential nutrients and food to the skin. Our skin needs to eat healthy as much as we do; when the skin is healthier, it will look better.
Unprotected sun exposure is the number one culprit to aging skin. In fact, it is proven that 80% of premature aging in skin is associated with UV damage. This is the reason we stress the importance of applying sunscreen on a daily and regular basis.
At GMA, we offer various advanced treatments to help treat and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, sagging skin and ultimately reverse the signs of premature aging.
