Physiological factors

Why?

Symptoms and consequences

  • The accumulation of free radicals in the skin

  • Abnormalities in the structure and function of collagen fibers

Local application of essential nutrients and use of dietary supplements that can delay the start of these changes, and reduce their appearance.

 

Lack of moisture

Symptoms and consequences

  • Lack of water leads to a strong exfoliation in upper skin layer, causes the appearance of superficial wrinkles.

  • There are also structural changes in dehydrated skin.

What to do?

Use moisturizers and treatments:

  • „Clog” - creating a film on the skin, inhibiting moisture loss from the skin throughout the day.

  • Moisturizers - hygroscopic substances, whose molecules retain moisture in the upper layers of the skin.

  • Active substances, which restoring the stratum corneum and increase protection from dehydration.

 

Stress
