Skin ageing refers to a set of typical conditions and changes that occur as people age. One of the most noticeable indications of ageing is changes in the skin. The skin is affected by the ageing process in a variety of ways. The epidermis thins and the rate of turnover slows significantly. Wrinkles and drooping skin are signs of growing older. Another noticeable indicator of ageing is hair whitening or greying. Environmental conditions, genetic composition, nutrition, and other factors all influence skin changes. Even though the number of cell layers remains constant, the outer skin layer (epidermis) thins with age. Melanocytes (pigment-containing cells) decrease in number. The size of the remaining melanocytes increases. Skin that is getting older seems thinner, paler, and clearer (translucent). Despite the fact that ageing skin loses a lot of function, most anti-aging treatments focus on eradicating or correcting the undesirable outward indications of ageing. As the population ages, the focus on ageing skin care must move from aesthetic concerns to how structural and functional loss affects quality of life.
