While our skin is as individual as we are, and skin ages differently depending on our genetics and lifestyle, the first signs of skin aging normally appear on the surface of skin from around the age of 30.

As skin ages its processes slow down and its structure weakens. The substances that keep skin firm and smooth start to reduce. This is due to a combination of internal and external factors.

The most noticeable first signs of skin aging are fine lines and wrinkles which deepen with the passing of time. There is a range of ways to treat them and reduce their appearance. Some methods are invasive, others are non-invasive. Some offer immediate benefits and others longer-term results.


Sun damage is the primary cause of photoaging (premature skin aging caused by the sun) and contributes to wrinkles. Prolonged and repeated exposure causes damage to collagen and will result in a less elastic, weakened skin structure that wrinkles more easily. Read more in how UVA, UVB and HEVIS light affect skin


Pollution triggers the release of free radicals and accelerates oxidative stress in the skin


Oxidative stress is triggered by smoking. Free radicals damage skin’s structure and contribute to general signs of aging including wrinkles. In addition, the nicotine and other chemicals in cigarettes damage the collagen and elastin in skin. This has an effect on skin’s elasticity and may also cause wrinkles.


Certain foods, mostly fruits and vegetables, are rich in antioxidants and can help to prevent premature aging and slow down skin aging in general.

Lack of sleep

Skin needs sleep to repair and regenerate.


How can I reduce fine lines and wrinkles?

Although all healthy skin will age, there are things you can do to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles and add radiance to your skin.

Complexion Correction

CC Creams offer Complexion Correction for an even skin tone.

Faces with a smooth complexion tend to look younger. Tinted creams with color pigments (such as Eucerin Hyaluron-Filler CC Cream) or make-up can be used as a short-term solution to even skin tone and correct complexion. Choose a product which applies evenly, and does not form lines, to help your skin appear younger.
