Adapt your lifestyle

The way our skin ages is also closely linked to the way we live. Some of our behaviours will accelerate the process and others will prevent it.

Rest assured, the culprits are now well identified: the sun which accelerates ageing, smoking which facilitates the destruction of the elastic fibres that give the skin its suppleness, stress which is a vector of free radicals, a poor diet, pollution, lack of sleep and a sedentary lifestyle.

These are all factors that can be influenced.
