In 2017, Dr. Krutmann and his colleagues defined the concept of “skin aging exposome” as the external and internal factors, and their interactions, affecting a human individual from conception to death, which lead to the biological and clinical signs of skin aging. This includes external factors such as sun exposure, tobacco, pollution, and nutrition. Also, stress and lack of sleep were identified as exacerbating factors.
The “beauty from within” market, also known as nutricosmetics, has gained momentum in recent years. The general trend towards healthier lifestyles, including personal care, sports and above all, a balanced nutrition, and the growing concern for beauty and healthy aging among consumers is driving this increase.
