From around the age of 25 the first signs of ageing start to become apparent on the surface of the skin. Fine lines appear first and wrinkles, a loss of volume and a loss of elasticity become noticeable over time. What you can do about it? Relax, take it easy. OOZZ can suggest perfect solutions for your concern fighting against ageing skin.
What are the signs of skin ageing?
There are three main signs of skin ageing and each one effects facial skin in a different way:
The first noticeable signs of skin ageing are fine lines and wrinkles. Small, shallow wrinkles known as laughter lines or crow’s feet tend to become noticeable at the outer corners of the eyes. These fine lines are followed by wrinkles on the forehead. At first these are only visible when our skin moves as we change our facial expressions and they are known as dynamic wrinkles. As we age further they become more prominent and evolve into permanent wrinkles that are visible even when our face is static. Frowning can cause vertical lines between the brows.
Loss of volume
It can be difficult to identify a loss of volume and facial contours. The first signs of a loss of volume in the lips tends to be when lipstick starts to bleed. A loss of facial volume tends to result in sagging skin, a flattening of the cheeks and the appearance of a “turkey neck”. It changes the overall appearance of the face which can look negative, sad or tired. The fold that develops between the nose and the mouth, known as the nasolabial fold, is also linked to sagging skin and a loss of volume.
Loss of elasticity and deep wrinkles
As our skin matures its structure weakens and it loses elasticity and firmness. Skin also becomes drier, appears more `creepy` and loses the radiance we associate with youthful skin. Again, because our skin is as individual as we are, these changes become visible at different ages but are most commonly experienced by those who are 50+.
What cause of Skin Ageing and What to do
Some of the causes of skin ageing are inevitable. Our biological age determines structural changes in the skin and the efficiency of cell functions. These slow down with each passing year. As these are based on genetic issues, there are not much things we can do about. However, there are quite a few of external factors that accelerate skin ageing.
The sun’s rays are the primary external cause of skin ageing via oxidative stress. Skin damage caused by the sun is known as photo-ageing and uneven pigmentation is often one of the first visible signs to appear. And it’s not just prolonged UV exposure that causes skin damage; everyday exposure effects skin too.
A sunscreen is literally a must. You can’t imagine how important a pea size of sun cream per day to your skin. Don’t wait for the pigmentation to appear as it’s extremely hard to remove than to prevent. One of the best sun cream in the market is :Ultra Light Daily UV Defense, selected by Telegraph

Exposure to pollution, most commonly in cities, can trigger the release of skin damaging free radicals. Pollution also worsens the effects of sun exposure accelerating oxidative stress. This is why JayJun created 2 masks dedicated for Anti-pollution factors that are dedicated to women living a bigger cities and exposing to dust, pollution on daily basis.

The chemicals and nicotine contained in cigarettes are responsible for an upsurge in the number of free radicals in the skin. Like pollution, they intensify the effects of sun exposure leading to oxidation stress. It’s not the easiest thing to quit smoke, but think about how healthy skin you will enjoy, may be time to consider quitting smoking?
Antioxidants are molecules with the ability to neutralise the free radicals that damage skin and speed up skin ageing. Eating lots of antioxidant-rich fruits and vegetables is an important part of caring for our skin as it ages.

Underestimate Use of Anti-Ageing Skincare
Skin will age more quickly if it is poorly cared for or if you use products that irritate skin. Thorough cleansing using gentle products appropriate for skin type, together with the regular application of care products targeted at skin’s primary concern, will help to care for skin. Good skin treatment will result in long term healthy and radiant looking skin, and make a perfect base for make up.
