Wrinkles, fine lines and skin that lacks elasticity - these frustrating signs of aging are the bane of most women everywhere. While anti aging skin cream and moisturizers fight to keep these foes at bay, it turns out your skin may be programmed to develop these over time.
Researchers at the Charité - Universitätsmedizin Berlin and a team of scientists in Hamburg, Germany, recently found that human skin has an internal clock that keeps aspects like cell renewal and repair on task.
Just how did they make this remarkable discovery? The team examined keratinocytes, or cell samples, on the epidermis of healthy young participants and found that several key components responsible for triggering cell renewal were guided by a biological clock, which in turn monitored the timing of many functions.
This study could explain why skin seems to deteriorate and become less likely to regenerate over time. While your skin may not always be on your side, with dynamic anti aging skincare products like Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream, which can boost skin cell renewal, elasticity and reduce the look of fine lines and wrinkles, you have a strong ally in your battle against aging.
