Youthful, dewy-looking skin does not happen by chance, it takes work and time to achieve. As years go by, the signs of ageing may start to appear. The skin becomes thinner and drier, and reduction in skin collagen and elastin leads to fine lines, wrinkles and loose skin. The medical term for this type of ageing is intrinsic ageing, which is a genetically determined process.
While genetics play some role in your skin health, it does not mean you can not take an active role in maintaining your youthfulness. Environmental and lifestyle choices also play an important role in determining your skin health. Controlling extrinsic factors such as sun exposure, smoking, unhealthy diet and alcohol consumption will help prevent premature skin ageing.
At The Lime Tree Clinic, we have proven and effective skin treatments and products to maintain your skin’s youthfulness and achieve a healthy, glowing complexion.
