WRINKLES: THE FACTS
As the skin ages it loses its strength and elasticity while also losing its ability to stretch. This results in sagging, wrinkles, lines and furrows. The severity of these changes to your skin depends on genetic tendency, skin phototype (the amount of melanin pigment in the skin) and exposure to environmental factors.
WRINKLES: THE CAUSES
Facial lines and wrinkles form because of the following factors:
– The ageing process
– Sun damage
– Other skin diseases that have a tendency to scar the skin
As exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun accounts for 90 per cent of the symptoms of premature skin ageing, sunscreen is the most important skincare product to use to help prevent wrinkles, followed by anti-ageing formulas used in your day and night skincare regimen.
WRINKLES: WE RECOMMEND
For an effective and long-lasting solution to treating deep lines and wrinkles we recommend the Neutrogena Healthy Skin Anti-Wrinkle Intensive skincare range. Each product contains an effective yet gentle concentration of retinol, which helps to fill in and smooth out deep wrinkles while improving the skin’s texture, tone and clarity.
