glowing skinOne of the first signs of aging is our skin, so what causes our skin to age?

Like the protective caps on shoelaces, telomeres keep your DNA from fraying and breaking down. Unfortunately, telomeres get shorter each time a cell copies itself, but the important DNA stays intact. Eventually, telomeres get too short to do their job, causing our cells to age and stop functioning properly. As they get shorter and shorter, your cells grow weaker and older. Of course, this process happens all over your body, but it is most evident in how your skin looks. As your telomeres get shorter, they allow more and more DNA damage to occur, which means each new generation of cells will have more “errors.” These errors are the reason why older skin does a poorer job of maintaining the moisture, plumpness, and elasticity that we associate with youth.

Essential skin components like Collagen, Elastin and Hyaluronic Acid start to malfunction, leading to sagging, wrinkles, age spots, and other blemishes. Plus, there’s less of them too since the Fibroblast cells that make them are also sickened by the same DNA damage. In fact, we now know that there’s a large number of factors that influence telomere length. These run the range from simple diet and lifestyle choices, to stress levels, childhood experiences, and even how many kids you have. In study after study, researchers have seen that people with the same “real” age can have completely different “biological ages” depending on their telomere length. And the longer the telomeres, the longer people stay healthy, the longer they stay beautiful, and the longer they stay alive.
