“Travelling fast into the future!”
I’m not saying that I am not a fan of growing old in years but I am just not sure if I like it when my skin does the same – especially when I am not ready. I have a strong feeling I am not alone so I suggest that we tackle this aging skin problem head-on, shall we? Aging skin is characterised by the skin beginning to slack. This is due to the skin losing its elastic tissue, leaving the skin to hang loosely. Furthermore, the skin becomes more transparent because the upper layer becomes more and more thin. This of course will on its own come with further problems – the skin becomes more fragile as it flattens, which means easy bruising because of the thinning blood vessels. Finally, one might also note that their skin has a bit of a more rough texture than before and let us not forget those age spots, dryness and itching. What a catastrophe!
Age spots, often referred to as liver spots are small dark areas on the skin. They usually appear on areas most exposed to the sun; the face, hands, shoulders and arms and, they vary in size. These tiny tan friends of ours are very common in adults over the age of 50, however, younger people can get them too if they spend a significant time in the sun. Don’t get too carried away on that beach, Sally!
“Tick-tok, tick-tok. So says your skin?” – Breaking the myth
Is it really only time that causes aging skin? Nope, there are numerous other factors at play here too. Skin age depends on a variety of factors and just because one has not yet crossed the 50 mark does not mean that they are safe from aging skin. One’s lifestyle, their diet and heredity also count. Oh great! So now I have to throw away my extra-large, double cheese with extra bacon pizza. Those cigarettes are not helping, Alex. The sun is a good source of Vitamin D but you also know that too much of anything can make you sick, right? Over-exposure to the sun is a player as well in this game of skins and so is pollution (unfortunately sometimes you do not have control of the latter). Finally stress, daily movement, obesity and sleep positions are contributors to aging skin.
“Oh if there was a way to escape it!’

Don’t worry this little miracle here did not come to steal anything but that aging skin and all its troubles. The gold foil in the serum increases cell-metabolism.

Your skin is left moisturised – meaning it’s bye-bye to dryness and inflammation too.
