The differences between young and old people are generally quite clear, becoming even more obvious when comparing skin conditions. This extensive organ suffers important physiological changes when individuals get older due to internal and external factors, which lead to its visible deterioration with a loss of firmness, elasticity and flaccidity. Thus, rejuvenating the skin by increasing these essential lost properties would help to regain skin youthful conditions and look.
