SKIN<br />

Telomeres &<br />

intrinsic ageing<br />

Skin, or cutaneous, ageing is caused<br />

by two distinct processes: intrinsic<br />

and extrinsic factors. Intrinsic, or<br />

chronologic ageing, is determined by<br />

our genetic clock and is a continuous<br />

process that usually begins in our mid-<br />

20s but doesn’t become evident for<br />

decades. In our 20s, collagen production<br />

begins to slow and elastin has a bit<br />

less spring. Dead skin cells do not shed<br />

as quickly and turnover of new skin<br />

cells decreases.<br />

Extrinsic ageing is environmentally<br />

induced and manifests in age-associated<br />

skin changes, including thinning, laxity<br />

and wrinkles. In addition, sun-exposure<br />

leads to pigmentation, premature<br />

wrinkling, telangiectasia and actinic<br />

elastosis, not to mention skin cancer.<br />

At a cellular level, ageing is thought<br />

to be related to the shortening of<br />

telomeres (the end caps of DNA that<br />

protect chromosomes). In a Nobel Prizeawarded<br />

discovery, scientists have found<br />

that telomeres shorten with each cell<br />

replication and eventually enter a stage<br />

of decline.<br />

Chromosomal DNA is compromised<br />

when the telomeres wear out, causing<br />

cellular senescence – a key catalyst to the<br />

ageing process.<br />

SkinMTX’s award-winning TeloZyme TM<br />

Youth Activator is a revolutionary<br />

multifaceted serum that is inspired by<br />

this discovery. It is specially formulated<br />

to target telomeres and the integrity of<br />

the skin for a more youthful-looking<br />

appearance. CBM<br />

TeloZyme TM<br />

Youth Activator<br />

This advanced serum<br />

is formulated to target<br />

telomeres. At the core of its<br />

formulation is TeloZyme TM<br />

Complex, the culmination of a<br />

ground-breaking innovation by<br />

SkinMTX scientists designed<br />

to help reinforce and protect<br />

the skin. This helps to boost<br />

skin condition and provide<br />

better defences against the<br />

signs of ageing. Skin looks less<br />

wrinkled and feels supple<br />

and taut.
