Know Your Skin
Your skin is affected by various factors- sunlight, dust, and pollution being the biggest ones. What you don’t realize is it’s not just your skin that is getting affected, your genes are too. Humans have 20,000-25,000 different genes. Genes are responsible for skin color, acne, aging and other characteristics.
How Genes Affect Aging
We age in two ways — extrinsically and intrinsically. Extrinsic aging is caused by external factors like sun exposure, while intrinsic aging happens naturally as time passes. It is intrinsic aging that we inherit from our parents.
Through our genes, we inherit certain skin tendencies, like skin that wrinkles or sags early or late in life, acne and hyperpigmentation. But genes only make up half of the skin story. The choices we make and our lifestyle also has a huge impact on how our skin ages.
The Future of Genomics
The study of genes, known as genomics, is likely to produce many exciting skincare advances in the future. Scientists are currently researching how different genes respond to different environmental factors (like sun and pollution) and how they interact with each other.
