THE POWER OF CHOICE
NO OTHER ORGAN IN THE BODY REFLECTS THE AGING PROCESS MORE VISIBLY THAN SKIN
Aging occurs from our first breath to our last. Our genetic blueprint is the foundation upon which the aging process occurs. However, science is continually revealing that our genes are not our destiny. The double-strand helix molecule known as DNA is the genetic blueprint for every living organism on planet Earth. It is also what makes each human being so unique. Today an exciting frontier in the science of aging has emerged thanks to the study of epigenetics, which examines how gene expression (intrinsic aging) can be modified through our environment and lifestyle choices (extrinsic aging) without altering the DNA sequence.
An analogy to explain the aging process is to think of our genes as a master switchboard. These genetic switches can be turned on or off, which in turn, will slow down or speed up the aging process. Environmental factors and lifestyle choices have the capability to act as switchboard operators. These elemental cues include: topical and ingestible products, nutrition, exercise, stress management, sleep, professional treatments, and You. In each case, these elements can turn genetic switches on or off, and affect the speed at which we age, and ultimately our overall skin appearance and vitality.
"Genetics account for only 20 percent of visible changes in the skin’s appearance.
Lifestyle choices are responsible for the remaining 80 percent. We have the power to choose an optimal outcome in our skin's health and appearance."
