Ageing Skin

We all show signs of ageing skin, even in our early 20's.

Skin goes through a number of changes as we get older:

Ageing through the years


Throughout our twenties, environmental damage and exposure to daylight begin to take their toll. Skin cell renewal starts to decline.


We will notice our first wrinkles in our thirties as collagen and elastin degrades. The skin may appear uneven and dull.


We will notice more prominent signs of ageing during our forties, including dark spots and dullness. Our skin becomes thinner and dehydrated.


From our fifties onwards, the skin will continue to develop wrinkles, fine lines and pigmentation. The skin's protective barrier weakens, which leads to sensitivity and dehydration.

Characteristics of ageing skin

Aged skin shows the following signs

  • Superficial dehydration lines

  • Lines and deep wrinkles
