This word is used when we talk about dehydration lines. They appear around the eyes or at the corner of the mouth, always in areas where the skin is the most delicate. Good circulation ensures the entire face is hydrated evenly, but lots of factors can disturb the balance. Firstly there are external factors: pollution, tobacco, sun... Then there are harsh cosmetics that dry out our complexion. The protective barrier of the skin is weakened over time and can no longer retain water and, as a result, the skin becomes dehydrated and fine lines appear. There is one way to get rid of them: good hydration. Go for a skin care product that is rich in hyaluronic acid, lactic acid and sugar.
Wrinkles usually start to appear between the ages of 25 and 30. They often sneak into the area around the eyes first but, as the years go by, wrinkles spread to other areas of our face too. Wrinkles appear when the skin's support structure becomes weaker and the skin begins to crease. This structure is made up of fibres, collagen and elastin ; which are joined by glycoproteins and glycosaminoglycans. As we get older, the metabolism of our cells slows down and a range of environmental factors cause free radicals to attack the fibres. As a result, the wrinkles get deeper. To help combat this, choose an enriched skin care product containing either retinol, hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, pro-xylane or glycolic acid, depending on the depth of the wrinkles.
Lines and wrinkles first appear in areas where the skin is delicate and fragile : around the eyes, in the corner of the mouth, and around the neckline. The best way to avoid it is hydration and protection. It is essential to hydrate your skin daily and above all, to protect it from the sun, which is the most significant cause of premature aging.
