Skin Care Book from C.H.I.P.S.

Skin Care and Aging
edited by Zoe Diana Draelos

Skin Care and Aging scientifically examines antiaging from a functional, genomic, and physiologic standpoint while presenting cosmeceutical, antioxidant and moisturization topical agents and nutricosmetic oral agents to achieve the one goal desired.

The book looks at the behavior of aging skin and how this can be modified with cosmeceuticals, antioxidants, moisturizers and nutritional supplements. It presents the best techniques and ingredients to achieve desired antiaging effects. The industry's top researchers present studies of specific active ingredients that impact the skin's cell defenses and other mechanisms.

Topics include:

  • Skin Pigmentation
  • Aging Skin
  • Genomics and Aging Skin
  • Novel Ingredients
  • Antioxidants and Skin Care
