What actually happens when the skin ages and why does ours ageskin from 25 years at all With a size of up to two square meters, the skin is the largest organ in our body. Time to take a closer look!n!

Our skin takes on a number of tasks: it protects against pathogens and mechanical stimuli, serves to regulate temperature and sensory perception, and we perceive touch or pain via the sensory system of the skin..

The first wrinkles, dark circles and other signs form over the years and allow conclusions to be drawn about your age. Over time, the skin becomes thinner and more sensitive and increasingly loses its elasticity and moisture. Blood circulation also decreases, and the complexion appears paler and pale.

But how exactly does the texture of the skin change over the years and to what extent can the natural aging process be delayed with suitable active ingredients such as hyaluronic acid or urea, in order to intervene precisely here.t.

The structure of the human skin

The skin consists of three different layers: Viewed from the inside out, these are the subcutis, the dermis and the epidermis.

Subcutaneous tissue

  • Loose connective tissue that is pervaded by fibers and fatty tissue
  • Mainly used as protection against the cold and energy storage
  • Protection of the deeper organs against shocks 


  • Consists of collagen and elastic fibers
  • Guarantees elasticity and tear resistance of the skin
  • Here are, among other things, touch, cold and heat receptors
  • Seat of the sebum and sweat glands
  • Supply of the epidermis with nutrients


  • Thickness: 0.5 5 mm depending on the skin regionn
  • Protects the organism against external influences
  • Constant renewal within 28 days
  • Hydrolipid film serves as protection against microorganisms

Aging process in men and women what happens to and in our skint?

In old age the skin develops wrinkles, it becomes drier and reacts more sensitively than before to external disruptive factors such as e.g. B. Pathogens. Various causes play a role here.

The hydrolipid film cracks, sweat and sebum secretions decrease and the production of the body's own moisturizing factors decreases. The subcutaneous fatty tissue recedes (skin atrophy) and the skin surface is enlarged by folds and wrinkles, accordingly the skin tends to be very

The older we get, the more free radicals (molecules) are formed in the body. The imbalance between good and bad molecules means that the normal repair and detoxification functions of a skin cell are overwhelmed and consequently all cellular and extracellular macromolecules are damaged. You may have heard this before under the term oxidative stress. The effects of free radicals on the skin are many. Pale or sallow, dry or irritated skin and even deep wrinkles can be the result.ein. 

When looking for the right skin care for men as well as the right skin care for women, you should look at 3 key areas,that can prevent you from having radiant and healthy skin in old age to own:

1. The stability of the collagen framework becomes weaker

Collagen fibers, which act like elastic bands in the skin and support the cells, are networked in men and give your skin more stability, elasticity and resilience. Especially in places where the skin is in a lot of movement, these ligaments wear out and deep ones develop that do not go away so quickly. The skin on the face in particular is moved a lot by facial expressions.

2. The natural moisturizing factor is decreasing

The various substances that provide moisture in your skin and thus smooth and soft skin are known as the Natural Moisturizing Factor (NMF). If these substances decrease with age, our skin appears dry and rough. Wrinkles appear especially around the eyes and in the forehead area..

3. Cell regeneration slows down

Due to oxidative stress, the skin cells can no longer develop properly. They no longer work properly and divide less often. We have more old and worn cells in our skin and fewer young, fresh cells. This negatively affects the appearance of your skin and it loses the youthful freshness that we want to keep as a sign of our strength and vitality..

What can I do about premature aging??

Much more important than just looking for buzzwords like anti-aging are the right and moisturizing ingredients in your daily care routine that you should treat your men's skin to.

A basic requirement is a certain amount of water for the suppleness of the skin. The water content of the horny layer is particularly relevant here; ideally, it is 10 to 20 percent. So-called natural moisturizing factors (NMF) such as the body's own hyaluronic acid or urea (urea) play an important role in the water content of the skin. Both active ingredients have hydrophilic (water-loving) properties, that is, they hold the water in the horny layer and regulate the natural loss of water..

The older you get, the more the production of moisturizing factors decreases, so that the skin becomes increasingly dry and the formation of wrinkles is favored.

Hyaluron: an all-rounder for your skin

Has proven to be an anti-aging ingredient with its hydrophilic propertiesHyaluronic acid well proven.

The acid has an outstanding water-binding capacity and therefore plays an important role as a natural moisturizing factor. Hyaluronic acid can bind 10,000 times its volume in water, in this way it counteracts excessive transepidermal water loss and plumps up the skin.

Since the natural content of hyaluronic acid decreases with age, care with hyaluronic acid components is ideal for effectively counteracting the signs of time and for activating new collagens in the lower layers of the skin. Depending on the area of application on your skin, we process the expensive hyaluronic acid in our products.

Moisture source urea (urea)

In order to bind moisture in the skin, a natural active ingredient can be used:urea – also known as urea.

The skin naturally contains around one percent of this moisturizer. Urea is hygroscopic and binds water in the upper layer of the skin, but the ingredient itself also has a keratolytic effect: it breaks down the connections between dead skin cells, promotes peeling and ensures a smoother skin surface. Urea is clean, colorless and almost odorless..

Since it is an active ingredient in the skin, urea is well tolerated even by extremely dry skin. In addition, it does not get straight to the skin, but is incorporated into a cream, for example (at sober we use a maximum of 4% urea in our products).

This is how you prevent wrinkles on your skin

In addition to the appropriate care, you can directly and indirectly influence how quickly your own skin ages. Finally, we would like to give you a few tips on how to get you afirm and youthful looking skin to preserve:

  1. Protect your skin from too much sunlight / UV light
  2. Try not to smoke and drink alcohol in moderation
  3. Get some fresh air and exercise (outdoors or in the gym)
  4. Use moisturizing creams
  5. Get between 7-9 hours of sleep a day
  6. Try to avoid stress 


If you are looking for the right skin care product for men or women that will keep your skin healthy and young for a long time, you should take a look above allingredients throw and check that your skin's needs for moisture and sustainable anti-aging are being served. A short-term refreshment and strengthening of the natural moisturizing factor and long-term care with vitamins and other high-quality ingredients should come first.
