Found in every cell of every living being, DNA is essentially a blueprint of how the cells grow, develop and function. DNA is like a ladder, so to speak, with chains of sugar acids along the sides and nucleotide rungs. These nucleotides hold the genetic code for all of life’s functions.
DNA creates new cells when existing cells are damaged, so if the DNA itself is damaged, it will create inferior cells. As a result, skin won’t make collagen as efficiently. The less DNA damage, the more accurate its cells will be, and your skin will look younger, healthier and more vibrant.
There are a variety of skincare products designed to preserve the integrity of your DNA. While some are jam-packed with antioxidants to help ward off damage, others contain technologically-advanced active ingredients that are said to penetrate the cells to actually repair genetic material. Many doctors believe these products’ promises make sense, and there is growing evidence of their effectiveness.
