The skin, which is constantly exposed to external factors, ages more easily than other organs. According to the results of studies, environmental factors are the main factor in skin aging. Many factors, such as the emission of gases from environmental waste, an intensive work pace and an inactive life, play a major role in skin aging. As a result, the skin of people living in large, busy cities ages faster and more aggressively. Another factor in skin aging are genetic factors. The average age of skin aging can be determined by examining the skin structure of the family.
