Chapter 2 - Through The Microscope

"What's in a                Wrinkle?"

As we age the skin loses much of the important vital protective functions that are so important. By age 90 our skin only functions at 1/3 to 2/3 of the level that it did during our youth.

Much of the damage to skin during aging is called photodamage and is caused by the ultraviolet rays of the sun.

What else ages your skin? How can you correct and control these factors? Chapter 2 holds all the answers.
