Over time, the skin undergoes numerous changes. Indeed, it gradually loses its elasticity, becomes thinner, dries out and reveals signs of ageing. There are solutions, notably skincare treatments, to prevent and/or reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines and combat skin sagging.
Which oils should be used against skin sagging, wrinkles and fine lines?
What is mature skin?
Over time and with hormonal changes, the skin tends to become thinner, dry out, show signs of ageing, and lose its firmness, density, and elasticity. This phenomenon reflects skin ageing. As we age, skin cells renew less and less, contributing to the accumulation of dead cells. The activity and number of fibroblasts decrease. Consequently, there is a reduction in the production of collagen and elastin, which are responsible for the firmness and elasticity of the skin.
This results in skin laxity, a sagging of the skin and the appearance of wrinkles which, over the years, become more numerous and deeper. A decrease in the level of hyaluronic acid also occurs, causing dehydration and skin dryness, as well as a thinning of the skin (loss of volume).

To prevent and combat the signs of ageing, it is necessary to take care of one's skin daily with vegetable oils that are suitable, providing a tightening, nourishing and regenerating effect :
