Inflammation is a known cause of premature skin ageing

28th Sep 2020

Inflammation is considered by scientists to be behind the visible signs of ageing as well as serious and common diseases? There are many causes of inflammation including air pollution, diet and lifestyle, dehydration due to lack of water, lack of sleep, smoking, stress etc. stress that cause free radicals in the skin that attack the DNA in body cells causing damage to the collagen making cells leading to visible signs of ageing: wrinkling and sagging.

Inflammation is the body's normal response to exercise or minor injury resulting in swelling and bruising which the body can fight naturally. However, harmful chronic inflammation is caused by poor diet, pollution and stress that can linger for months and years. Skin ageing and diseases have been linked by scientists to chronic inflammation.

What is anti-inflammatory skin care? Anti-inflammatory skincare products contain ingredients rich in anti-oxidants that reduce and also protect from the damage caused by inflammation. Oxidation is a normal chemical process in our bodies that produces unstable molecules called free radicals. This fatty acid dampens down inflammation in the skin cells and again helps to slow oxidative stress.

What better time than the new beginnings of the Autumnal season to make some changes that could lead to amazing results.
