Sirtuins are being touted as one of the most exciting developments in skincare. These protein enzymes impact the aging activity in the skin by seeking out damaged cells and repairing them so they are able to live longer.
Sirtuins occur naturally in the body and play a role in how skin cells live and function. They suppress the effects of aging caused by internal energy production, which emits free radicals. In addition to eliminating evident signs of aging, sirtuins also slow down the process itself.
When coupled with activators like resveratrol, sirtuins stimulate the body’s natural repair mechanisms and collagen production so there are fewer wrinkles and lines.
Experts expect sirtuins to be really big in skincare products because they provide arguably the most protection of any antioxidant against cellular aging. To see some of the products that are already including sirtuins, click on the “sirtuins” tag below.
