Skin and Aging
Your skin changes as you age. You might notice wrinkles, age spots and dryness. Your skin also becomes thinner and loses fat, making it less plump and smooth. Sunlight is a major cause of skin aging. You can protect yourself by staying out of the sun when it is strongest, using sunscreen and wearing protective clothing. In this section, you can explore how your genetic makeup impacts your skin as you age.
The skin uses sunlight to help manufacture vitamin D, which is important for normal bone formation. But sometimes its ultraviolet light can be very detrimental. A chemical within the skin called melanin protects it from the sun's ultraviolet rays, which can burn the skin, and over time, could reduce its elasticity and cause photoaging. In this section, you can gain insights on how your genetic makeup influences how exposure to the sun impacts your skin.
The environment we live in is a crucial factor in maintaining the health of our skin. A large portion of skin problems are due to irritants in the air such as automobile exhaust and smoke from chemical factories as well as chemicals in our environment. Dry and cracked skin are often caused by harsher winter weather and while we can’t always avoid the effects of the weather and the environment, we can try and protect ourselves. In this section, you can explore how your genetic makeup affects your skin's sensitivity to environmental factors.
