3 Top Tips for Protecting Ageing Skin

Ageing is a natural part of life, affecting every aspect of our lives in one way or another, whether mentally, emotionally or physically. One of the most noticeable physical transformations is how our skin changes as we age.

From the age of 20 we lose 1% of our collagen every year. Collagen provides structural support between our connective tissues, so as we age the loss of collagen leads to skin losing its firmness and elasticity.

The skin ageing process accelerates during the perimenopause, which occurs between the ages of 40 and 60. The perimenopause lasts about 5 years, during which time you might lose as much as 30% of your collagen.

Ageing skin has 5 key characteristics:

  1. laxity
  2. lines and wrinkles
  3. uneven pigmentation
  4. lost volume—that is, less ‘plumpness’
  5. dryness or an appearance of dehydration
