Ageing is a process that everyone goes through whether we like it or not.

Think of your ability skin as an old rubber band - it doesn’t come back right away over time,” says Dr Rox Anderson.
Here’s a rough plan of what will happen to your skin at certain ages (please note that these will vary depending on your lifestyle and genetics):

As you age, you might notice that your skin begins to become thinner and lose its firmness and elasticity. It’s because your skin’s ability to regenerate is slower and so you might notice that it’s dryer than normal.
