Collagen and elastin form the support structure for skin - giving it firmness and shape.
Fine lines and wrinkles are caused when collagen and elastin fibres breakdown and the skin begins to lose its elasticity and strength.
This breakdown happens naturally as we age but can be accelerated by factors such as UV exposure (the primary cause of premature ageing), environment, and lifestyle - like smoking and poor diet.
