At Harbour Skin Clinic Cleveland, we understand you want to look as young as you feel – and you are not alone! It’s no secret that beautiful, youthful skin comes from maintaining a healthy lifestyle and following a skincare routine tailored to you. To help keep you looking and feeling your best, we have put together a list of the five primary causes of aging skin and why OCosmedics is our trusted skincare brand for anti-aging! Say hello to younger, beautiful skin!
1. Photo Defence
Just a few minutes of sun exposure each day over the years can cause noticeable changes to the skin. Repeated exposure to ultraviolet light from the sun accounts for almost 90% of symptoms of premature skin ageing and damage.
We’re sad to say that sugar also makes you age faster. Glycation causes the skins proteins (like collagen and elastin) to lose their ability to function normally and is now well recognised in accelerated skin ageing.
Inflammation initiates the tissue healing process and limits the damage to skin cells caused by everyday chemicals and pollutants. Whilst it is helpful in the short term, excessive (chronic) inflammation is one of the most common themes in early onset skin ageing.
This process starts with free radicals which are highly reactive small molecules that can damage virtually any molecule in the body, including the important cellular structures found in the body’s largest organ – the skin.
5. Collagen Breakdown
This represents 75% of the skin’s dry weight. The quantity and the quality play a major role in the skin’s appearance.
This might all sound a little scary, but don’t stress there is still time to undo the damage! No matter your age, it’s never too early or too late to give your skin the love it deserves. Available at Harbour Skin Clinic Cleveland, OCosmedics is based on the purest combination of medical grade ingredients, cosmetic science and its very own world exclusive V8 Peptide Complex™ and was designed on the threshold of medicine to treat the five major causes of aging: photo defence, Glycation, inflammation, oxidation and collagen breakdown.
