Adding to this, the collagen and elastin are also destroyed by both internal and external factors. One key internal factor is stress, which has an adverse effect on the hormonal system as well as other bodily functions such as the metabolism, digestive system and immune system. External factors include exposure to the sun, air pollution, and the use of cosmetics that are not appropriate for the skin type. The above factors reduce the quality and quantity of collagen fibers and elastin, causing fine lines which will gradually deepen if they are not treated properly.
