Your daily skin care routine, cumulative exposure to sunlight, and individual genetics influence how quickly your facial skin ages. Though each person ages at a different pace, everyone deals with similar challenges.
As you get older, your skin produces less collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid. As these levels diminish, your skin loses strength, resilience, and moisture. Your skin also thins out, and the natural layer of fat under your skin gives in to gravity: loosening, falling downward, and accumulating in unattractive pockets.
