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.
