Extrinsic Ageing is the skin ageing that we do have some control over. This relates mainly to UV exposure or photoageing, but also includes exposure to cigarette smoke and other environmental pollutants. Obviously if we use take appropriate care of our skin, we will suffer less extrinsic ageing.
It is worth noting that healthy skin has the following features:
- Even in colour and tone
- Firm and tight
- Free of disease
