Intrinsic skin ageing (chronologically aged skin) is primarily due to a result of an acclumation of oxidative damage. Younger skin is very efficient at guarding against oxidative damage, yet as we age this skin mechanism declines, which in turn triggers inflammation…..breaking down collagen and a notable decrease in the number of fibroblasts. Extrinsic skin ageing arises from a continual assault of UV radiation, pollution, smoking and air conditioning; all of which further exacerbates sk
