Internal and External Factors Influencing the Skin Condition
Internal factors | External factors
Internal (endogenous) factors include a predisposition to one of the above skin types or to certain skin diseases such as atopic dermatitis.
Unlike premature skin aging, which is caused by external factors, biological endogenous skin aging is genetically determined and characterized by:
1. Diminishing capacity for cell regeneration and renewal
2. Reduced sebaceous and sweat gland secretions
3. Hardening of the connective tissue with reduced water binding capacity
4. Degeneration of elastic fibres
Predisposed people can react to mental and stress-induced triggers with pathological skin conditions. Hormones can also have a physiological and pathological effect on the skin condition. For example, hormonal changes trigger the acne of puberty or the age-related atrophyof the skin beginning with menopause. Diseases of endocrine glands such as the thyroid and adrenals are often associated with changes in the skin condition.
