The aging process isn’t entirely based on genetics.  In fact, there are a number of external factors that affect the skin to cause signs and symptoms of premature aging.  While most premature aging is caused by over-exposure to the sun’s UV rays, other factors also contribute.  For example, a commonly used facial expression can, over time, lead to expression lines that resemble that expression.

Don’t worry - there is hope.  By using an anti-aging treatment regimen, you can combat extrinsic age factors.  For instance, Cosmedica Vitamin C Serum and Vitamin C Prep and Tone remove free radicals that form due to sun exposure, limiting the damage they can do to the skin.
