- What Is Extrinsic Ageing?
Skin ageing is an area of importance, not only because it is the most obvious sign of the ageing process, but also because it represents a visual indication for one’s overall health.
Ageing of the skin, though, is not solely dependent on ‘age’, for example your skin age can differ considerably to your actual age and this is because there are several other factors which contribute to skin ageing. These factors fall into either intrinsic or extrinsic categories1.
Extrinsic ageing is a result of lifestyle and environmental factors. Intrinsic ageing on the other hand is a genetically determined, naturally occurring process.1 https://www.skinceuticals.co.uk/catalog/product/view/id/1997/s/extrinsic-ageing-what-is-it/category/1255/ £0.00
