Among the components of our body, the skin holds a special place.
In terms of mass and surface area, it is the body’s largest organ and is subject to a double aging process: chronological or intrinsic aging, related to the advancement of age. Then, there is also what we call extrinsic aging, which is caused by the effects of the sun’s UV rays and pollution.
"LThe appearance of our skin reflects our age but also our state of health and our life story."
Genetics also play a part. We inherit certain skin characteristics from our parents and grandparents.
Although we cannot modify genetics, we can certainly modify epigenetics and this is where Nescens cosmeceuticals come in. Their active ingredients can modify certain aspects of skin aging.
