With age, our skin suffers natural wear-and-tear, just like the rest of our bodies. But much of what we think of as natural aging is in fact due to sun exposure and other factors. That means it can be avoided -- and it's never too late to start.
Within our skin layers is a fiber meshwork of collagen and elastin. These proteins keep our skin firm and moisturized. When the skin is stretched, this protein matrix snaps it back into place.
Over time and the change in hormones, our fiber network weakens, and skin sags. It loses its support structure. There are other unavoidable forces contribute to aging skin, as well:
Skin becomes thinner with age and loses fat. The plump smoothness of our skin as children is replaced by a rougher texture.
Gravity relentlessly tugs on weakened skin, creating the droop of jowls or "chicken fat" under the arms.
Our genetic code contributes invisibly to the process -- leading to skin that looks 50 at 80 in some people, the unfortunate reverse in others.
The ultraviolet rays from the sun penetrate into the skin. There, they damage the elastic fibers that keep skin firm, allowing wrinkles to develop. Sunlight is also responsible for age spots or "liver spots" on the hands, face, and other sun-exposed areas.
We now have other factors exposing our skin to these UV rays, computer screens.
Screen time has increased dramatically during the pandemic resulting in “screen fatigue”; however, this additional exposure to the blue light from technology devices is also damaging our skin. To protect skin from aging due to blue light technology and exposure to the sun, Aroma offers our Rooibos Facial Serum. The facial serum replenishes your skin's moisture while fighting free radicals and toxins from the blue light and sun rays. Rooibos is high in antioxidants that fight the free radicals and toxins from the blue light and sun rays.
Rooibos is also a powerful anti-inflammatory that helps to calm the skin, allowing it to glow and shine from within!
