How Aging Happens – Use of Raw Garlic in Wrinkle Prevention
Skin aging is a multisystem degenerative process that involves the skin and the skin support system. Skin aging may be caused by several factors, such as UV irradiation, stress, or smoking. Acute exposure of human skin to UV irradiation causes sunburn, inflammation, immune suppression, and dermal connective tissue damage, and chronic exposure to UV over many years disrupts the normal skin architecture and ultimately causes photoaging and even skin cancer. Wrinkle formation is a striking feature of photoaged skin and is caused by the degradation of collagen fibrils and gelatin fibers.
