How to protect the skin from aging?
First of all, skin aging is a normal physiological process linked to the passage of time. No one escapes it.
As we age the skin becomes dry due to lack of hydration and becomes slackened by a decrease in the number of elastin and collagen fibers, causing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Added to this is a process called "oxidative stress" which will accelerate skin aging by degrading cell membranes. This process is aggravated by environmental factors like pollution, sun, wind, cold.
To fight against skin aging, we can act by using natural treatments rich in antioxidant active ingredients and fatty acids contained in vegetable oils. There are many antioxidant molecules such as omega 5 found in pomegranate oil, vitamine E in prickly pear, essential oil of Roman Chamomile… They will defend the skin from free radicals generated by stress oxidative. Fatty acids, on the other hand, present in large numbers in vegetable oils will help limit water loss by improving the quality of the lipid cement of the epidermis.
