Wrinkles and stains are part of the effects of the passing of time. Aging is a biological process, which depends on several factors: the environment, genes, and lifestyle. Free radicals – produced by cellular or pollution factors, ultraviolet radiation or stress – are capable of damaging macromolecules such as proteins, lipids, and DNA, giving rise to some of these typical effects.
Wrinkles are skin grooves that are formed due to the reduction in the amount of collagen, a structural protein present in the skin. With the passing of time, skin loses its tone and elsaticity due to a reduction in the synthesis of certain substances, including elastin.
Products that counteract these aging events act by protecting the skin from external factors (such as solar radiation) or by supplementing the amount of antioxidant substances, helping to enhance the formation of collagen and elastin”
