INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT THE SKIN

The largest organ in our body, the skin is particularly complex in terms of both composition and function.

The skin forms our outer barrier, protects us, carries out important metabolic functions and is able to adapt to circumstances in many ways.

Our skin has three layers, the top layer of which renews itself on average every 27 days when new cells grow from the inside. Skin renewal declines year by year, and after the age of 55 (approx.) each renewal process takes a
period of 60–70 days.

Collagen and elastin in our skin are responsible for forming an elastic net in the dermis and are responsible for the elasticity of our skin.

From a certain age, generally 25, the process of collagen renewal begins to slow down. In other words, collagen degenerates faster than it can be replaced.
Our skin becomes limper, loses tone and vitality (wrinkles) and becomes increasingly prone to drying out. On top of this, free radicals also take their toll on our skin by constantly attacking and destroying our collagen supplies.

This results in the skin becoming drier and thinner in appearance. The interlocked structure of the skin’s different layers begins to loosen.

As the body matures (cosmetically speaking, we speak of mature skin from the age of 45), the fatty compounds that support the skin – padding it out and providing volume begin to change. It often seems as though the whole face begins to droop.

HOW DOES

OUR SKIN AGE?

The aging of our skin is nothing but a pure biological process of nature. It is a process that no one can escape. However, the factors that impact – if not determine – when the aging process begins and the speed at which it progresses are as diverse as the capacities and functions of our skin itself.

These factors that negatively impact the appearance of our skin need to be understood before they can be positively influenced and supported.
