Beauty and youth are the most likely to own forever. Nowadays we are all trying to keep our youthful appearance or somehow, get it back. Our mission is to prolong our younger – looking, despite the fact that we’re consciously endanger ourselfs.

When we talk about anti-aging, we thing about wrinkles and losing the skin elsaticity. The main nutrients contained in the skin are: collagen (that provides firmness), elastin (that provides elasticity) and glycosaminoglycans (GAG – provides hydration).
There are intrinsic and extrinsic factors:
Intrinsic – Natural aging process. Every year after your 20 birthday the skin produces
about 1% less collagen, and the production of elastion and GAG lower, so it causes the
skin to become thiner and more fragile.
Extrinsic – The sun and the enviromental damage has bigger effect on the skin than
intrinsic factors. UV damage and polution cause a big loss of collagen, elastin and GAG,
while causing discolorations and changing the texture of the skin. Result of this are
wrinkles, sun spots and thin, sagging, rough skin.
