Wake Up Your Genes, With Your Skin Care
By Anna Jimenez |
Did you know your genes get lazy as you age? Not that you get lazy (wink, nudge), your genes-those things you have no control over. It's true, new research has found that older skin has a vastly different genetic profile than younger skin. This means that your cells produce proteins at a slower rate with each candle on your cake.
Good news though, skin care companies are looking into this problem and creating products specifically designed to stimulate cellular repair, protein production and reduce cell damage. Nude Advance Cellular Renewal Moisturizer ($92) is the latest cream to change the way the skin behaves. In clinical tests it has been seen to "increase cell repair by 70 percent and reduce cell damage by 50 percent," says the company.
Sounds like a good way to wake up your cells, and nudge them back to work.
