How knowing the science behind skincare reduces your risk for aging skin

Your skin is always on. It’s an immune health star, a multi-layer thermal shield, an attraction asset, an overall health indicator, and more. There’s a reason the ASEA skincare product team and the Beauty Expert Board put so much effort into carefully designing, testing, and perfecting the science behind skincare. It’s amazing and irreplaceable. Just to be able to share products that help it do what it does naturally, at its highest potential level, is a joy. So let’s explore what it can do, so we can work to help it do it even better!

The many systems that touch your skin

Everyone’s lifestyle is different and so is everyone’s skin. The condition of a person’s skin is dependent on a variety of factors. Sometimes an imbalance of hormones in the endocrine system can cause several epidermal issues, like breakouts, excessive oil, itchiness, dry patches, and discoloration. An improperly functioning circulatory system can cause skin issues like broken or over-dilated blood vessels, leading to redness and inflammation. Many people deal with these common skin issues. Once you know the connection between your skin condition and physiology, you can tackle your skincare like a pro!

Keep in mind that intrinsic factors behind aging skin have to do with your genetic background while extrinsic aging factors originate outside your body. Smoking, poor nutrition, and sun exposure are extrinsic factors to be aware of. In fact, according to the National Library of Medicine, sunburns account for nearly 80 percent of premature facial aging. Skin damage is largely preventable. And your diet can heavily impact the condition of your skin. Saturated fat and sugar are most often linked to a higher likelihood of wrinkles while vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants present in foods like vegetables, fruits, and healthy fats tend to help prevent wrinkles and age-related dryness. With all of these factors in mind, let’s see what you need to do to protect your skin.
