Along with the physiological aging of the skin occurs which involves a series of skin changes such as the following: & nbsp; The number of structures which renews the collagen (which is called fibroblasts) decreases. Collagen is a protein that is present in the skin and is responsible for elasticity. When these structures decreases, the skin loses elasticity. The process of melanogenesis which causes increased pigmentation is not uniform and patches appear. & Nbs p; The capillary fragility and consequently increases appear veins (couperose) on the cheeks and nose.

The hydration is reduced. ; The thickness of the dermis decreases. & N bsp; extracelulardermico Calcium is reduced which is fundamental in the contractions-expansion process of the fibers. All these changes (especially the loss of elasticity and hydration) are responsible for the appearance of wrinkles. However, in addition to these changes in the skin, other elements called free radicals which are chemical groups in the production and involving factors such as: & nb sp; Environmental pollution radiation from the Sun & nb sp; physical and mental exhaustion, prolonged treatments with drugs and radiation therapy. Free radicals alter the biological system of humans to act specifically in the metabolism of proteins, carbohydrates, lipids and nucleic acids which accelerates the reduction of collagen and, therefore, the aging process, then we ask again how can we slow the aging process? Step One: Neutralization of free radicals and adequate food intake. The first step is the neutralization of free radicals with the aid of substances we consume antioxidantesque as vitamin E and evening primrose oil.
