Updated: Jan 12, 2021


What happens to your skin during your 40’s and 50's?


During your 40’s ad 50’s, like most parts of your body will go through ageing. You will observe:

1. Decrease collagen production and skin starts to thin

2. Fine lines look deeper due to the gradual loss of fatty tissue

3. Scars do not heal as quickly and increased risk of skin infection

4. Skin start looking dull due to slower skin cell turnover rate

5. You start seeing the trauma you put your skin through in past. Sun damage, spots, pigmentations and wrinkles.


Your skin appearance in every depends largely on your genes, how you look after it and lifestyle.

It is never too late to start a skincare regime. Nobody can turn back the clock but we can certainly provide what our skin needs to optimise and maintain skin health.
