A next milestone in skin rejuvenation
It is probably almost as old as mankind itself: the desire to grow as old as possible while still possessing the vitality and appearance of a young person. So far, however, this eternal “fountain of youth” remains only a dream. One thing, though, is now within reach: What if our skin could once again look visibly younger than our birth certificate indicates? We can do more than we may think. For a long time it has been assumed that how our skin ages is genetically predetermined. But with the findings in the field of epigenetics, this assumption has been permanently disproved. According to this, the appearance of our skin, for example general vitality, firmness and wrinkling, is influenced by many external factors. Do we eat a healthy diet and get enough exercise? Do we have frequent stress and too little sleep? Do we smoke or expose ourselves to other damaging environmental influences such as sun exposure without adequate UV protection? All of this affects our epigenetic pattern and can have a negative impact on our biological age and therefore the appearance of our skin. The good news: these changes are not set in stone, but reversible. In short, we can reactivate biological processes in the cells. Welcome to the exciting field of epigenetics!
