Is age 50 when things start to go downhill? Absolutely not! The 50+ generation, now fondly referred to as “best-agers”, are adventurous and interested in all kinds of things. The “young old” are fit, flexible, and active. American scientists have even established that most people become happier over the years.
At 30, you start to realize you are no longer 20. It’s not just that weekend parties leave us tired until Wednesday; the face starts to show wrinkles and its youthful freshness starts to fade. Even with a healthy and stress-free lifestyle, by the mid-30s at the latest, no one can avoid the signs of skin aging.
Life is a constant state of change. We age and we mature. Our skin is also affected by this maturing process. At 20, it’s in top shape and the cells take about 28 days to regenerate. From the age of 30, this regeneration already takes considerably more time, at about 40 days.

A tiny person catches a glimpse of light in the world and is embraced in loving arms. Gentle stroking and soothing are some of the first sensory impressions a baby experiences. Perception by the skin is there from the very beginning, while the other senses only gradually develop later. But the skin is not just a sensory organ, rather it performs many protective and otherwise vital tasks.
