Skin Ageing

Skin aging is caused by the accumulation of cell damages and non-repaired cells. Besides external factors (like environment and nutrition), our genes can affect how fast our skin ages.

Your Result

Based on your genetics, your genetic predisposition for Skin Ageing is

High

What does it mean?

Likely to have increased susceptibility to skin ageing.. Likely to have increased susceptibility to skin ageing.

Suggested Lifestyle Changes

Skincare Recommendations

1

Apply daily skin care to promote skin regeneration, maintain skin elasticity and smoothness.

2

Apply sunscreen to reduce skin exposure to UV radiation.

3

Skincare products containing vitamin C and E are effective in providing anti-oxidative protection to skin.

4

Apply cream containing niacinamide (vitamin B3) as it can regulate cell metabolism and regeneration.

5

Study shows topical application of green tea polyphenols before UV exposure may reduce DNA damage in the skin.

6

Apply skincare products containing vitamin A (retinol) as it induces the biosynthesis of collagen and slows down the break down of collagen.

7

Skincare products containing folic acid and creatine has showed improvement in collagen metabolism and improve firmness of the skin.

What Is Skin Ageing
and How Can It Affect You

What is Skin Ageing

Our skin changes as we age. Skin aging is a multifactorial process that involves genetic factors, hormonal origin, environmental factors and nutritional nature. There are two types of skin aging -- chronoaging and photoaging. Chronoaging is the natural aging process that normally begins in our mid-20s. Our skin starts to sag when there's gradual loss of skin elasticity. Photoaging refers to skin aging is caused by exposure to sun, which can cause skin changes such as wrinkles, age spots, pigmentation and changes in skin tone.
