New Perspectives on Aging Skin
The world’s population of people over 60 years of age is rapidly increasing as is life expectancy. For this reason, the cosmetics industry is interested in understanding the biology of aging skin with a goal to fight the appearance of aging skin and ultimately slow down the aging process.

Aging is a complex series of events that occur slowly over the course of time. Both internal and external factors influence aging skin. There are variations in the way people age that are associated with genetics, gender, ethnicity and lifestyle.

This presentation will discuss photoaging associated with chronic inflammation, UV, IR and blue light-induced photoaging, protein oxidation and why the impact of each may result in a difference of aging skin in various skin types. Understanding the molecular mechanisms associated with the variation of aging including the variation in appearance of aging skin will help in product development of improved personalized skin and hair care products.
