How wrinkles form

Your skin is constantly under attack. Each day you are exposed to an assult of wind, sun, cold and pollution. In addition, fatigue, emotional changes, hormonal swings and simply the passage of time can take their toll on your skin. These internal and external attacks combine to weaken your skin’s structure and appearance.

The skin’s structure deteriorates at the level of the dermis; the deeper living layer of the skin. When vital components of the dermis such as collagen fibres, elastin and hyaluronic acid becomes less abundant, the dermis is weakened, causing a noticeable impact on the appearance of the skin.

Hyaluronic acid plays an important role in moisturising the skin and helps to give the skin its elasticity and tone. It is the fundamental matter in which the collagen fibres and elastin are immersed.
