Ageing skin isn't just about wrinkles. Loss of volume is our latest passage of time obsession. And the reason why the filler industry rakes in so much money. Fortunately, researchers have been able to identify why our skin changes and loses volume as we age.
At 20, we revelled in our soft, plump, radiant features. But as time went by our mirrors showed a loss of elasticity and suppleness. Why? Because as we age, our skin loses its ability to retain water. This drought is caused by a fall in hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring molecule that harnesses water, but which diminishes over the years. At the same time collagen, the support-bearing protein in the dermis, goes into decline. This double-whammy leads to sagging and loss of volume, a normal physiological process, but one we can still tackle.
It's quite simple - you just need to adapt your beauty routine! First and foremost do as Korean women do - religiously cleanse and moisturise. Quench your skin's thirst by applying hyaluronic acid-rich creams that will compensate for any water loss. Even better? Opt for creams that also contain collagen to strengthen your skin's inner scaffold. These two active ingredients will literally hold up your skin, leaving your face looking youthfully plump. For an added moisture-packed, revolumising treat, apply a plumping face mask twice a week.
