‘Stress Free’ – Scientific Basis for Natural Anti-Ageing Skin Care
Ageing is driven and controlled by intrinsic and extrinsic stresses, which cause damage to biomolecules including DNA. Accumulating findings indicate that longevity depends on the ability of the organism to cope with extrinsic or intrinsic stressors (Kirkwood & Austad, 2000).
The ageing process takes place within all organs of the body, and the skin shows visible signs of ageing. Skin ageing is driven by several factors including:
- Hormonal disruptions;
- Metabolic processes; and
- Environmental stressors.
