The human skin has a surface area of approximately 1 to 1.5 square meters and is far more than merely a protective barrier. Your skin is a living organ, with various purposes and benefits. The skin regulates excretion of metabolic waste products, it regulates and adjusts temperature, and includes numerous receptors for detecting pain, tactile sensation, and pressure. The health and external appearance of the skin correlates directly with the lifestyle and dietary habits of each individual, in addition to critical age-related contributing factors such as hormonal changes and imbalance.
The skin plays a vital role in the social and visual experience, as it can clearly give away an individual's age and reflects the consequences of ageing. Skin ageing is influenced by various internal & external factors:
Ultraviolet radiation, excess alcohol consumption, tobacco abuse, environmental pollution, stress, hormone levels and chronological ageing.
In addition, people don't realise that as their body weight increases and their blood sugar levels rise, biochemical reactions disrupt the structural framework of their skin. These two factors together lead to cumulative deterioration in skin appearance and function.
