Skin aging results from biological changes in the epidermis, dermis, and hypodermis. In the epidermis, barrier function is reduced causing an increase in transepidermal water loss (TEWL).
TEWL is the diffusion of water from the blood circulation through the dermis and epidermis finally to evaporate at the surface.
Skin cell turnover slows causing dryness and there are pigment production changes, aggravated by sun exposure, leading to uneven skin tone.
In the dermis, collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid levels decrease leading to reduced firmness, elasticity and hydration. This results in fine lines, wrinkles, dullness and decreased skin tone.
Hypodermis aging is marked by the loss of fat in the face, which leads to decreased fullness, sagging skin and wrinkles.
Aging of the skin can be divided into two categories: intrinsic and extrinsic.
Intrinsic aging, known as natural or chronological aging, normally begins in our mid-20s and is determined by genetics.
Extrinsic aging accounts for up to 90% of skin aging and is largely controllable. The good news is that you can reverse some of this damage and prevent future negative effects on the skin.
