Skin ages in two different ways:
Intrinsic aging is genetic (therefore impossible to delay or prevent) and occurs over the entire body. The skin becomes thinner, drier, and slower to regenerate.
Photoaging occurs due to exposure to ultraviolet radiation from sunlight. It is the main cause of cosmetic change to our skin as it ages. Photodamage results in a buildup of abnormal elastin which no longer has ‘springy’ properties and causes skin to sag and apper swallow, rough, and wrinkled.
Color: Skin is moderately transparent. Light which penetrates the skin is reflected back by melanin, collagen and hemoglobin to contribute to thr apparent color of skin. Variations in skin color are related to the amount of pigment in skin, and the thickness of the dermis.
Texture: The thickness and smoothness of the dipermis, the quality of fibers in ther dermis, and the amount fluid in the connective tissue all affect the texture of skin.
