Ageing 101: The Scientific Underpinnings

Ageing, both a masterpiece and a mystery, orchestrates a symphony of changes within us¹.


At the cellular level, it involves the buildup of damage from oxidative stress, genetic mutations, and telomere shortening, which are protective caps on our chromosomes².

Biologically, ageing leads to a decline in the body's ability to repair and regenerate tissues, affecting functions like skin elasticity, muscle mass, and bone density³.


This understanding is our compass in the world of anti-ageing and skincare choices.

Our Skin: our Body's Frontline Warrior

The skin, our body's frontline warrior, stands as the first sentinel of aging. It's not just our largest organ, but the interface connecting us to the world⁴. This multitasking marvel acts as our bodyguard, shielding us from the external elements⁵, regulating temperature, releasing toxins, absorbing nutrients, and even sensing the world around us⁶.

Understanding its role in the aging process is key to looking and feeling your best.

Our skin : A remarkable multitasker

The human skin is nothing short of a remarkable multitasker, a vital organ with roles that are far more than skin-deep.

Understanding Skin Layers

Peel back the layers of knowledge to reveal the secret to our skin's vitality. The epidermis, closely bonded to the supporting dermis, and the subcutaneous hypodermis, where fat often resides, together make up the skin's intricate trio. In this exploration, we'll unveil the distinctive roles and characteristics of each layer⁷.

Epidermis: The Skin's Shield

The epidermis, the outer armor, made up of dead skin cells, keeps harmful agents out while sealing in vital moisture and nutrients⁷.

Starring: Hyaluronic Acid

Hyaluronic acid is the skin's "sugar superhero," found in animals, humans, and even bacteria. Picture it as a long and heavy chain of sugar molecules, with its favorite hangout in loose connective tissue⁸.

In the body, hyaluronic acid comes in three forms: one sticks close to cells, another attaches to support structures, and the third roams freely⁸.

Meet its ally, hyaladherins, the special proteins who recognize its unique charm and help it bond with other elements in the body's support structure (matrix)⁸. Together, they're the dynamic duo shaping cell behavior and creating a resilient structure. It's the body's very own sugar architect!

How Does Skin Time Travel? Dual Forces Of Skin Ageing

Intrinsic ageing, directed by our inherited genes, is further shaped by age-related hormonal shifts. It gradually leads to the thinning, dryness, and reduced elasticity of our skin⁹. The diminishing presence of elastin, collagen, and hyaluronic acid contributes to this transformation, causing our skin to lose its once-youthful resilience¹⁰.

On the flip side, extrinsic aging is orchestrated by external forces such as sun exposure, air pollution, smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, poor nutrition, and a sedentary lifestyle. These culprits sow the seeds of brown spots, rough textures, wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and accelerate the ageing process¹¹. 

Facial ageing tells a story through the rhythm of muscle movements and the pull of gravity, leading to those familiar lines and wrinkles. When facial fat dwindles and skin thins, you will notice a softer, less defined look³ that's all part of the natural plot.

Recognizing The Signs

Ageing can start leaving its subtle marks as early as our mid-twenties¹.

Tiny lines grace our brows and eyes, and our skin's bounce begins to fade. As time goes on, these hints grow into full-blown wrinkles, joined by increased pigmentation and pesky brown spots¹².


Decoding Skin's Evolution: A Scientific Wrinkling Scale

Dermatologists and researchers turn to specialized scales and tools to assess the ageing process, taking wrinkles, pigmentation shifts, texture changes, and elasticity into account. These standardized assessments help us measuring the impact of skincare products and cosmetic procedures in the age-defying battle.

28 - 35 Years Old

You might notice the emergence of only a few mild wrinkles, which are entirely normal and a natural part of the ageing process. Importantly, during this time, you are unlikely to develop keratoses, which are rough, scaly patches on the skin. This means your skin maintains its youthful appearance without these specific skin issues³.

Can We Turn Back Time?

Halting the natural aging process is beyond our reach, but we can certainly slow down its visible impact⁹.

Lifestyle choices are the key players in this ageing game. A balanced diet, regular exercise, proper rest, and steering clear of smoking and excessive alcohol can postpone those early signs of ageing¹¹.

For a targeted approach, skincare routines come into play. Employing skin-friendly products like moisturizers and sunscreens can help keep your youthful appearance intact¹¹. More advanced, aesthetic treatments like dermal fillers step in to reduce wrinkles and rejuvenate skin elasticity¹¹.

While we can't turn back time, we can certainly make it a graceful journey.
