Ageing – it’s something we (eventually) go through but understand very little about. Sure, it’s easy to make a list of all the changes that come with age — memory loss, wrinkles, muscle loss — but no one really understands what ageing is, why it happens and how to stop it.
Think of ageing as that which happens to our bodies over time. This definition encompasses of ageing the human body goes through, as opposed to the signs of ageing that occur later in life, like grey hair and wrinkles.
Some ageing is caused by the body. Think kids growing and teenagers going through puberty. Another type of ageing accumulates over time, like skin damage caused by sun exposure. As a result, ageing is a combination of bodily changes and the impact of how we take care of ourselves.
In other words, ageing is the impact of time on the human body, and it occurs on multiple levels.
What is anti-ageing then?
The definition of anti-ageing is to delay or stop the ageing process. Our bodies are made of cells, and ageing occurs when there is cell death. (R.I.P young cells 😢)
The anti-ageing cosmetics sector is one of the most promising within this industry. Consumers of these products increasingly demand not just long-term effects but also affects that are immediately visible after application.
