While aging of the skin can’t be halted, in many cases it can be slowed down.
In fact, some of the symptoms of aging that are visible on the skin are actually treatable. Many of the causes of wrinkling and loss of elasticity that come with age have been identified. These factors include sun, cold, wind, smoking, fatigue, stress, poor nutrition and even environmental irritants such as soaps or detergents.
It is impossible to avoid all of these assaults on the skin. In Australia especially, our sun exposure is often significant and stress and fatigue seem to be all too common. While we can’t turn back the clock, we can protect our skin and help to rejuvenate skin that has begun to show signs of aging. The use of customised biocosmetic products can reduce skin irritation, rashes, redness and inflammation. Compounded creams can also be useful for soothing dry skin and treating blemishes and problem areas.
Just as every face has its own distinctive features, so does every person have his or her own skin type.
