Based on your genetics, your genetic predisposition for Skin Elasticity is
What does this mean?
Likely to have increased skin elasticity. Likely to have increased skin elasticity.
How Is Your Genetic Risk Calculated?
This result is based on the SNPs(single nucleotide polymorphism)that are associated with Skin Elasticity.
Suggested Lifestyle Changes
- Studies found that consumption of diets rich in polyphenols can improve skin elasticity. The major source of polyphenol are fruits, vegetables, cereals, tea and wine. Fruits like grapes, apple, pear, cherries and berries contains up to 200-300 mg polyphenols per 100 grams fresh weight.
- High intake of glucose and fructose can reduce collagen levels, so reduce your glucose and fructose intake.
- Having enough dietary intake of vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) can help improve the signs of ageing.
- Oral collagen peptide supplementation can increase the collagen density, improve skin structure and health.
- Study shows that oral aloe sterol supplementation improves skin elasticity.
- Do not smoke as smoking reduce the production of collagen, which can cause the skin to lose elasticity and firmness.
- Apply skin care products contain antioxidants, like N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) (100), vitamin C and retinoids to stimulate the collagen-producing activity of the skin dermis layer.
- Avoid prolonged UV exposure as it is associated with photo-induced damage, which includes the loss of skin elasticity.
