TELOMERES, AGING SKIN AND SKINCARE
Our DNA strands’ protective caps, known as telomeres, shrink as we age, causing cellular aging and eventual cell death.
Recent studies however have demonstrated that several skincare products can support telomeres and slow down the aging process. It has been proven that skincare products with substances like peptides, antioxidants, and plant stem cells may strengthen telomeres and encourage healthy, youthful-looking skin.
Observed benefits for the skin:
• Reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles
• Improve the firmness and elasticity of the skin
• Improve the overall radiance of the skin
In addition to utilizing skincare products that support telomeres, lifestyle adjustments like lowering stress and getting adequate sleep can also support telomeres and encourage healthy skin aging.
