As we age, our skin changes and, while this is a natural part of the ageing process, it can make some clients feel more self-conscious. Skin elasticity is the skin’s ability to stretch, crease, move and return to its original shape. However, as we age, our skin’s elasticity diminishes and can leave skin looking loose, saggy, leathery and fine lines and wrinkles start to appear.
During the ageing process, skin produces less collagen which is what provides skin cells with fullness, and elastin which allows skin to bounce back after it creases or moves. Loss of elasticity means skin is unable to bounce back in the way it once did. However, there are a number of skincare products you can provide to your clients to help with loss of skin elasticity.
Loss of elasticity skin treatment
One of the biggest causes of skin ageing and loss of elasticity is constant exposure to the sun and lack of protection. Exposure to the sun can fast forward the signs of ageing and mean lines and wrinkles appear sooner than they otherwise would.
Heliocare 360° is a leading range of evidenced-based sun protection products developed by Cantabria Labs. The range provides daily protection against UVA and UVB rays, plus visible light and infrared-A.
The key ingredient within Heliocare products is Fernblock, a supercharged anti-oxidant that’s proven to help protect the skin from within against sun damage, as well as repair existing DNA damage.
