Is there any relation between oxidative stress and skin aging?
Skin aging is a dynamic process that occurs due to chronological and photo-aging caused by the influence of external factors, especially ultraviolet-UV radiation.
Cumulative oxidative stress, the formation of free radicals and their adverse effects on biological systems in the skin cells is a common mechanism of both skin aging processes.
The formed reactive oxygen species-ROS can lead to the oxidation of the cell`s building molecules.
Lipid peroxidation, membrane protein damage and DNA mutation may lead to many structural, functional and aesthetic changes in the skin and can also initiate development of many diseases.
