Balanced, supple, soft to the touch, though normal skins do not have any particular problem, they are however subject to natural aging like any other skin type.
Did you know that skin cells are constantly renewed following a rate of 28 days on average? Made at the deepest layer of the skin, they migrate to the surface and ultimately detach from the skin. It is this regular cycle which helps maintain the soft and toned skin appearance.
The problem is that with age, this cycle lasts over time. The oldest cells then accumulate at the surface, giving the complexion a dull appearance. On the other hand, the fat under the skin gradually disappears while the production of collagen and elastin, molecules ensuring skin elasticity, decreases. The production of sebum, which helps to maintain the skin’s hydration and helps to protect it, slows gradually.
With age, the velvety appearance of normal skins thus reduces gradually. These lose thickness, sensitivity and suppleness. They weaken and dehydrate, appear less firm, less elastic and tend to get ageing marks more quickly than oily skin.
All these changes can be accelerated by environmental and behavioral factors such as cumulative exposure to ultraviolet, lack of sleep exposure, a diet unbalanced and poor stress management. The good news: by acting on these factors, we can delay the appearance of signs of ageing to stay beautiful longer!
