How Does Our Skin Lose Its Youth?

As we age, our skin changes and becomes more vulnerable to damages. What are the factors that causes your skin to lose its beauty?

1 Genetics and Age

Have you ever wondered why some grandmothers do not look a day over forty?

2 Air Conditioning

Another factor that causes our skin to lose its youth could be due to the harmful effects of air-conditioning.

Dehydrated Skin


Air-conditioning decreases skin's moisture content, causing dry, flaky skin and increasing appearance of fine lines.

Skin Irritation


Air-conditioner filters can cause skin irritation, resulting in red and inflamed skin.

3 Free radicals in skin

Though there are many factors that can contribute to ageing, one of the biggest factor would be due to the free radicals that our skin is repeatedly exposed to.



Excessive free radicals exposure can also lead to hyper pigmentation, resulting in pigmentation and uneven skin tone.

This explains why our skin may age faster than other organs!




Sun exposure generates free radicals that age the skin, causing roughness and wrinkles.



Alcohol consumption produces free radicals that impair the body’s normal defenses against them.



Skin inflammation (i.e. acne) produces free radicals. Our skin naturally produces hydrogen peroxide to attack the inflammation.



Haze carries a bulk of free radicals like carbon monoxide, sulphur dioxide, and nitrogen dioxide.

Processed Food


Processed food contains oxidized fats, increasing free radicals in our body.



Stress generates hormonal changes, which in turn produces free radicals.

Blue Light


Harmful blue light (from mobile devices, laptop, TV) induces free radical production, penetrating both eyes and skin.

High Sugar Intake


Excessive glucose stimulates the production of free radicals in our body.

Normal Metabolism/Too Much Exercise


Cells naturally produce free radicals as a by-product of metabolism.

While we may not be able to choose our genes, we can change our lifestyle habits and take preventive measures to slow down the effects of ageing on our skin.

Basic Skincare

Does your skincare routine comprise of these 3 steps?

Step 1

Remove makeup

Step 2


Step 3

Apply sunblock and reapplying it every 1-3 hours

Knowing the damages your skin is susceptible to, these 3 steps are barely minimal in preventing your skin from withering quicker than your chronological age!

Free Radicals

Every time you feel your skin becoming less supple or youthful, remember that free radicals are the main culprit. You may not see the effects in a day, but over a year or so, the damage done is real and potentially permanent!

The basic skincare routine only cleanses and protects your skin. However, it does not provide our skin the nutrients we need as we age. Hence, there is a need to supplement our skincare regime with a nutrient-dense serum to tackle the effects of ageing.

When you get a sunburn, it’s not your skin cells being damaged by the sun and dying, it’s your skin cells’ DNA being damaged by the sun and them killing themselves so they don’t turn into cancer.

People with fair skin tend to have a stronger reaction to mosquito bites. This is because the histamine released by our bodies in response to mosquito saliva tends to be stronger in lighter-skinned individuals.
