The Biggest Causes of Skin Aging

UV radiation is the primary factor in skin aging, with sunlight being the most well-known source. However, UV radiation isn’t just about sunlight. It is divided into three groups: UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. These types of UV radiation, along with visible light and infrared radiation, are present in different amounts, have different energy values, and penetrate different skin levels. This penetration causes cellular damage, leading to skin aging.

Breakdown of Collagen, Elastin, and Hyaluronic Acid

Around age 25, collagen levels start to decrease, leading to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Enzymes break down collagen and elastin, and an imbalance in their production and degradation results in sagging skin and thinning. Hyaluronic acid, a natural substance in the body, also breaks down with age. It provides volume to the skin and stimulates collagen production, but the previously mentioned factors accelerate its degradation.

Sleep Deprivation

Lack of sleep impacts facial appearance, leading to more signs of aging and reduced barrier function. This causes faster moisture evaporation from the skin, contributing to dryness and wrinkle formation.

Improper Skincare

Using harsh skincare products or neglecting a proper skincare routine damages the skin’s protective barrier. This results in dryness, irritation, and accelerated aging.
