Did You Know? Aging

There are two types of aging: Intrinsic and Extrinsic.

Intrinsic aging is also referred to as chronological aging. This natural aging process is responsible for about 20% of aging and is very difficult to control because it is determined by genes. It is the reason some people begin to see gray hairs in their early 20’s and others may be well into their 40’s or beyond before they experience graying hair.

Extrinsic aging is influenced by external factors. 80% of premature aging is caused by lifestyle choices such as unprotected sun exposure, repetitive facial expressions, smoking, unhealthy diet, and poor skincare regimens.

Extrinsic aging is highly controllable with a simple daily skincare program that includes daily UVA/UVB protection, exfoliation and the use of retinols and peptides to stimulate collagen. Don’t forget the application of hyaluronic acid to moisturize and add volume and plant derived stem cells to extend the life of your skin’s stem cells.
