Understanding the natural ageing of the skin

Our epidermis is composed of cells called keratinocytes arranged in layers. Like a brick wall, they are like stones joined together by mortar.

The role of these layers is crucial, as they act as a protective barrier. They are made up of proteins, natural antioxidants that capture free radicals, immune cells, and lipids, all of which are useful for preserving our skin. Under the epidermis are located cells called fibroblasts. They are real factories producing collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, three structural proteins. These proteins give our skin elasticity, firmness, and suppleness. In short, they are the guarantors of smooth skin and the oval of the face.

With time, the skin cells decrease the production of structuring proteins and reduce their activity. The skin loses its firmness and density. It is at this stage that the first fine lines appear.

Overexposure to the sun’s rays leads to premature ageing

Beyond natural genetic predispositions, the ageing process is accelerated by external aggressions such as the ultraviolet rays emitted by the sun. Dermatologists speak of photo damage.

UV radiation and pollution, for that matter, generate excess free radicals, highly reactive species that attack skin cells in many ways. These attacks cause a form of cellular lethargy, reducing the production of structural proteins.

That is why it is essential to protect the skin with a suitable sun cream when you go out in the sun.

Prevent wrinkles appearance with antioxidants

Antioxidants capture free radicals. Our skin defends itself naturally with vitamins present in our skin. In particular, vitamin C and vitamin E are natural antioxidants that play a major role in delaying the first signs of ageing. However, the radicals generated in excess through sun exposure cannot be effectively reduced.

Preventing the signs of ageing, therefore, involves the routine application of antioxidant-enriched cosmetics. Day cream, night cream, balm, eye serum are all products available in pharmacies to apply to the face, neckline, and body to slow down the appearance of imperfections. But they don’t disappear entirely; these cosmetics have the power to slow down, fill in and smooth out wrinkles effectively.

The sooner you apply an antioxidant cream to your skin, the better you can protect it from oxidative stress. The benefits?  A youthful, luminous, and radiant skin that lasts.

Maison Éole offers you cosmetics enriched with Wine Extracts3, a polyphenol with three unique cycles. Its antioxidant power, reputed to be five times greater than usual products, combined with highly moisturizing and natural components, effectively protects your skin against the signs of aging.

Visible effects… but after how long?

The anti-ageing effect of a cosmetic is not immediate. It takes several weeks of daily application to see the first results. It takes time to stimulate your skin cells. A well-respected beauty routine will allow you to find soft, toned, and firmed skin. Wrinkles gradually fade as your cells renew themselves.

However, you must be aware that no miracle cream will reverse this trend.

Maison Éole promises to firm and lift your face while protecting it from the disastrous effects of the sun and pollution.
