Premature Aging
Premature aging refers to the unnatural acceleration of the natural aging process and is induced by sun exposure (90% of premature aging is caused by ultraviolet rays from the sun or tanning beds) and lifestyle choices (smoking, diet or stress). These factors trigger a slowing of collagen production and the breakdown of elastin, reducing the elasticity and the skins ability to snap back into place.  The skins cell turnover process slows, and dead skin cells shed off of our skin’s surface at a slower rate.  Other contributors to the quickening of the aging process are sleeping  positions, repetitive facial expressions and gravity.

Premature aging is not natural.  Healthy aging, known as intrinsic aging, or the normal process of physical change over time is determined by our genetics rather than by our lifestyle. This process begins in our mid 20s and is not induced by external factors like premature or extrinsic aging.  While intrinsic aging is out of our control, you play a powerful role in controlling extrinsic aging.  And the right lifestyle choices and propre skin care are your first steps towards maintaining healthy skin.
