What Is Epigenetics?

Until recently, experts believed that it was your genes that solely determined the way skin would age. However, recent studies have shown that to be untrue. Thanks to epigenetics we can say that while our genes give a basic guide of how skin will age, it is possible for skin to age better when boosted with the right products.

At Aenea Cosmetics, we like to explain this by thinking of a Christmas tree. Though the tree looks how it does because of genetics and nature, it can be improved upon by decorations. Similarly, though our skin looks how it does because of genetics and nature, it can be improved upon by epigenetics. Epigenetics is easily seen when comparing identical twins that grew up separately. Though their genetic code is the same, they can age at different rates depending on the external factors they have been exposed to.

CHOOSE HOW YOU AGE

Though we will all age, thanks to epigenetics it is possible to choose how you age. For example, if you expose yourself to a lot of sunshine and eat an unhealthy diet, you will age quicker. Similarly, if you smoke or are surrounded by a lot of pollution, you will age quicker. This also means it is possible to choose to age slower than your genetic code sets out to. By regenerating and revitalizing cells with epigenetic products, it’s possible to age better.

EPIGENETICS + ANTI POLLUTION = IMPRESSIVE SKINCARE RESULTS

Regardless of where you live in the US, pollution is increasing and it is something we are all exposed to on a daily basis. From radiation from cell phones to pollution in big cities, it’s hard to avoid.

There is a clear link between the health of skin and the amount of pollution absorbed, something that is regularly backed up by scientists. For example, skin that comes into contact with a larger amount of pollution tends to show signs of aging a lot earlier.

This is where the Aenea Cosmetics skincare range comes in. We combine our knowledge and understanding of epigenetics with the very best anti-ageing and vegan ingredients, to create products that can protect the skin from all types of pollution. Though we are unable to protect skin from specific lifestyles choices, we can give it a boost in the right direction by helping it to fight back.

FROM THE MOMENT WE’RE CONCEIVED WE HAVE A GENETIC CODE THAT TELLS US HOW WE’LL AGE.

Epigenetics (literally meaning “on top of” genetics) refers to the modification of these genes by external factors like pollution, changing the way our cells read the original genes. Based on the science of Epigenetics, Aenea Skin helps the skin cells to regulate the complex processes in the skin, and protect against pollution, resulting in a smoother, firmer, clearer complexion.
