Lines & Wrinkles Stourbridge

Lines And Wrinkles Stourbridge

Its a fact that everyone at some point in their life will get lines or wrinkles. For some people, this happens earlier in life than others. The reason for this is skin type; some peoples skin naturally produces and retains more collagen. And collagen is the protein that is responsible for ensuring that the skin keeps its elasticity.

What causes lines and wrinkles?

Lines and wrinkles are a natural part of the ageing process as we grow older; our skin gets thinner and less elastic, resulting in it being less able to protect itself from the sun’s UV rays, which reduce the skins natural collagen.  Collagen makes the skin more elastic, and as it reduces, we get the appearance of lines and wrinkles.

Other causes of premature ageing are a poor diet, overexposure to the weather and stress.

Does diet affect your skin?

Eating foods that are high in sugar and saturated fat help slow down the production of collagen. Both of these substances, however good they taste increase inflammation, which is not good! Enough said, without getting all scientific. To aid good skin health and avoid the signs of ageing invest in a healthy diet.

Reducing or avoiding alcohol and other stimulants like the coffee can also help reduce the nasty toxins from your body. And give you a brighter glowing complexion. Drinking at least 2 litres of water every day keeps you hydrated. Freshwater also helps your body naturally flush out all the nasty impurities.



Is the weather bad for skin?

Overexposure to the wind and sun can also accelerate the signs of ageing. The wind can dry out your skin, which damages the outer layer of protection — making it more susceptible to harm from the suns UV rays. To protect yourself always use a high-quality sunscreen even when it’s not sunny or windy. We stock these in the clinic.

Is stress bad for your skin?

With our busy lives, we are all exposed to a certain amount of stress.  However, stress causes the body to produce a substance called Cortisol the stress hormone.  Cortisol is the natural enemy of Collagen, which keeps your skin tight and wrinkle-free.  Also, the stress may make you hold your face in an unnatural position again leading to unwanted lines.  This hormone also disrupts the bodies natural systems including, growth, digestion and reproduction in respect of digestion, an imbalance of good and bad bacteria, that may contribute to acne breakouts.
