Best Ways to Prevent Skin From Aging

Our skin is affected by two types of aging: intrinsic aging – which is our skin naturally losing its youthful fullness with the passing of time and extrinsic aging which occurs when either our lifestyle choices or our environment causes our skin to show signs of aging earlier than it should.

The main cause of both types of premature aging is free radical damage. Free Radicals are produced in our bodies by the air we breathe. To see how fast it can happen, cut an apple in half and watch how fast it turns brown. Over time, free radicals play a role in developing skin damage including lines and wrinkles, and many health conditions such as cardiovascular disease, cancer and more.
