Ageing occurs in every layer of the skin.
Changes within the skin’s layers reveal themselves on the surface as an indication of ageing.
A sluggish cell turnover and decline in lipid production on the skin’s surface makes it more susceptible to roughness and dryness. As this specific layer of the skin ages, it develops sensitivity to UV light. The skin becomes less efficient at healing itself, and a decrease in immune function can cause an increase in skin infections, along with slower wound healing.
From the age of 25, there is a 1% yearly decrease in collagen, one of the skin’s “building blocks”. Concurrently with a decrease in elastin production, this results in dermal tissue imbalance. The skin’s structure becomes damaged and wrinkles are more liable to emerge. Elasticity decreases, making the skin more vulnerable to damage and broken capillaries. Decreased blood flow means a less efficient nutrition and oxygen delivery to the surface. This causes a reduction of the rosy glow enjoyed by youthful skin.
In the deeper layers, the most noticeable changes affect the size and number of lipid-storing cells in the adipose layer. This decrease has a knock-on effect on loss of volume, and can result in deep wrinkles, hollow cheeks and diminished wound healing.
