Young teenage skin often suffers from different kinds of problems. Many times during puberty, under the influence of hormones, skin begins to worsen. Pores start to expand, in particular in the T-zone (forehead, nose, chin), and in it secretion of the sebaceous glands starts fouling, which results in the formation of blackheads.
Nowadays, the skin is subjected to the adverse effects of the external environment, which significantly accelerates the aging process. Adverse action clearly is part of UV radiation in the formation of free radicals, which are a consequence of sunburn and group of changes known as photo aging of the skin, as well as all kinds of pigmented lesions.
Regardless of skin type, at a certain age the problems associated with aging skin start to occurring. Factors influencing this condition are always the same, but the difference is the degree of their severity. It is true that the rate of aging is genetically determined and we have little power, but we can slow down this process by proper care and a healthy lifestyle.
Throughout our lives skin is wears off. Her delicate structures are damaged or degraded and are no longer able to fulfill its functions. With age, the body's ability to regenerate tissues decreases. The mechanisms governing the functioning of the skin start to working weaker, which is reflected in its appearance. Such natural, biological aging is further compounded with the effects of UV radiation.
Mature skin exhibits characteristics of both exogenous aging, conditioned by unfavorable external environment, as well as endogenous one, associated with genetic susceptibility and biological clock. The tissue renewal process is disturbed. The skin gradually becomes thinner, while the stratum corneum thickens, the consequence of which is skin becoming grey and loses its radiance.
