Skin aging accelerates considerably after the age of fifty due to undergoing menopause. The first stage of skin aging is the appearance of mimic wrinkles. Their occurrence is caused by daily movements of the facial muscles. The eye area, the line between the mouth and nose, the forehead and neck are at risk. At first, these wrinkles are visible only for a few seconds after making the appropriate facial expressions. Over time, they become clearer and deeper, even if we do not use facial muscles. The skin begins to lose elasticity and becomes drier and drier. The thickness of the epidermis decreases, which makes it more exposed to external factors. Discoloration occurs. (1)
