WHAT ARE THE MAIN CAUSES OF AGING SKIN?
Fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and other signs of aging skin are due to both internal and external factors. Internal (or intrinsic) aging is driven by genetics as well as the cellular damage caused by free radicals, inflammation, and hormonal shifts that reduces the skin’s ability to repair itself. In aging skin, signs of intrinsic aging include fine lines, wrinkles, skin sagging, loss of skin plumpness, and increased dryness.
External (or extrinsic) aging is due to environmental factors like UV exposure, air pollution, and lifestyle habits such as diet, smoking, and alcohol consumption. Signs of extrinsic aging include discoloration and dark spots, wrinkles, and redness.
Despite the causes of aging skin, SkinCeuticals offers an array of clinically-proven anti-aging skincare products that can help address your unique concerns and restore a more youthful-looking appearance.
