It is common knowledge that all of our skin ages throughout our lives. But most people believe that ageing is mainly genetic and biological in nature, coming from inside of us. Well, you might be surprised but more and more studies are suggesting that skin ageing is only 3% – 5% genetic. That leaves over 95% to environmental factors. 

If you think about this, this actually great news. Simply because it means we can do something about our ageing process. We aren’t purely in the hands of a natural process which can’t be delayed or slowed down. Of course we are all going to age. Of course there aren’t miraculous youth elixirs BUT

You DO have a choice

You can look like beautiful young looking 40-50 years old woman but you can also be a very old looking 30 year old. 

The choice is in your hands. The more you know about what is causing skin ageing the more you can do about it.
