Aging is accompanied by skin aging. Growing old beautifully seems like an art. But this is not so bad thanks to anti-aging...      

What is anti-aging? 

Did you know that "anti-aging" is a verb? Looking good is hard work. The use of botox, for example, unfortunately does not bring you to a long-term result and is therefore not an anti-aging solution. 

From what age to start with anti-aging? 

Due to (a combination of) different factors, skin aging occurs. 

Our hereditary predisposition determines, to a large extent, how we look later and plays a role in the development of wrinkles. This intrinsic (internal) skin aging is pre-programmed and is inevitable for every person. However, it is true that we also have an influence on the condition of our skin.   

In addition to hereditary factors, our environment also plays a major role in how our skin ages (extrinsic aging). Among other things, the sun, free radicals and nutrition influence the process. Skin aging starts from the twentieth year of life but only becomes visible between the 35th and 40th years of life. Start with pre-anti-aging for incipient skin aging and anti-aging for obvious signs of skin aging. 

Did you know that 80% of skin aging is caused by external factors such as lifestyle, diet, climate, wrong skin care and especially by the sun? 

What exactly will change in the skin?    

In aging skin, some changes in the structure and composition of the skin are visible and demonstrable. 

The epidermis is getting thinner and thinner. The cell renewal process slows down.The horny layer, on the other hand, may have thickened. The skin is more vulnerable to external damage. Because the skin barrier is disturbed, the skin becomes drier and dull.   

The dermis. Two important structures are decreasing in number and quality.   
- The amount of collagen reduces. Collagen is a part of the connective tissue and ensures firmness of the skin. Hyaluronic acid, a protein that is also part of the connective tissue will deminish.  
- The amount of elastin decreases, making the skin less stretchy and supple.   

Due to the reduction of  both collagen and elastin in the skin, the skin becomes weaker, less elastic and wrinkles and lines appears.

Anti-aging treatments 

(Anti-aging) Skin care products are indispensable in the fight against lines and wrinkles. Furthermore, a regular visit to a beauty salon and a healthy lifestyle are part of the process of maturing beautifully.   
So you have a lot of influence on the aging of your skin. Postpone the use of anti-aging products, you do this by protecting your skin daily against UV radiation, IR**, blue light** radiation and of course by using the right products during your (pre) anti-aging skincare routine. LOOkX is happy to help you.
