Skin consists of two main layers, the epidermis on the outside and the dermis underneath.
The epidermis is about as thick as a piece of paper and includes the stratum corneum on the surface, the granular layer that makes fats and proteins, the squamous cell layer that makes keratin for the top layer and works as a water transporter and the basal (lowest) layer, where the skin renews itself by making new cells.
The basal layer also is home to the pigment-producing cells that colour the skin.
The dermis, about half an inch thick, is made up of collagen, elastin fibers and a gel called ground substance. This is the part that holds the blood vessels, nerves, hair follicles and the oil and sweat glands. It takes about 28 days for new skin cells to be made in the dermis and work their way up to the outer layer of the epidermis.
There are many factors that lead to wrinkles and the crepe-like quality of ageing, damaged skin - prolonged unprotected sun exposure, unhealthy lifestyle habits like smoking and overindulging in sugar-rich, processed foods and, of course, the simple passage of time.
While it pays to protect your skin from outside factors by being sunsmart and developing a healthier lifestyle, time marches on no matter what you do. Age is the enemy of elastic, healthy, young-looking skin. That's because as we age, our skin stops producing collagen, a substance which contributes to skin strength and elasticity. Its degradation leads to wrinkles that accompany ageing. Although many skin care products tout the fact that they contain collagen, the fact is that collagen is too large to be absorbed directly through the skin. You cannot absorb collagen from skin-care products that contain collagen.
However...collagen production can be stimulated by peptides, chains of amino acids that are found naturally in the body. This stimulation makes it possible to slow down the effects of ageing and diminish facial wrinkles. That is why stimulating peptides is the most effective anti-ageing insurance you can buy.
