The effects of chronic sun exposure on skin are readily apparent when skin not typically exposed to the sun and skin regularly exposed to the sun are compared. While the sun is not the only aetiological factor in the dynamic process of skin ageing, it is the primary exogenous cause among several internal and environmental elements. Thus, photo‐ageing, the main focus of this article, is a subset of extrinsic skin ageing. The influence of the sun in extrinsic skin ageing, as well as its role in… Expand

Very few things in life are as certain as ageing. Although it is a definite and imminent process, it is neither uniform nor linear, and its pattern varies in different individuals. The pattern ofExpand
Molecular mechanisms of skin photoaging and plant inhibitors
Skin ageing is a complex multifactorial process occurring in all living beings. It generally comprises two independent and distinct processes, i.e., intrinsic, age-dependent or chronological agingExpand
The role of diet in maintaining healthy skin
Skin is the organ of crucial importance due to its numerous functions: barrier function, mechanical, immune, sensory, endocrine, thermoregulatory, vitamin D synthesis. It is involved in theExpand
Molecular Mechanisms and In Vivo Mouse Models of Skin Aging Associated with Dermal Matrix Alterations
TLDR
Mouse models of skin aging have been extensively developed to elucidate intrinsic aging and photoaging processes, to validate in vitro biochemical data, and to test the effects of pharmacological tools for retarding skin aging because they have the advantages of being genetically similar to humans and are easily available. Expand
The role of cytokines in skin aging
TLDR
Cutaneous aging is one of the major noticeable menopausal complications that most women want to fight in their quest for an eternally youthful skin appearance and further research is required especially to establish the role of cytokines in the treatment of cutaneous aging. Expand
Skin mirrors human aging
TLDR
The deterioration of important skin functions, due to intrinsic and extrinsic aging, leads to clinical manifestations, which mirror several internal age-associated diseases such as diabetes, arterial hypertension and malignancies. Expand
Anti-aging and Sunscreens: Paradigm Shift in Cosmetics
TLDR
Alternatives to the current topical application of sunscreen are being considered to overcome the drawback of reapplication of the sunscreen often which can be a boon to the cosmeceutical market. Expand
Effect of the sun on visible clinical signs of aging in Caucasian skin
TLDR
Clinical signs of aging are essentially influenced by extrinsic factors, especially sun exposure, and UV exposure seems to be responsible for 80% of visible facial aging signs. Expand
Review of Major Theories of Skin Aging
TLDR
There are several mechanisms that trigger the natural aging process and contribute to age-related changes, including oxidative stress theory of free radicals, the mitochondrial dysfunction, telomere shortening, UV radiation and other mechanisms that taken together or alone may or not accelerate the change in skin. Expand
Aging of Stem Cells in Skin: What Is Driving the Aging Process?
TLDR
This chapter aims at compiling the present concepts of both intrinsic and extrinsic skin aging, which are reflected by the term “photoaging” by foregrounding human skin. Expand

Chronic sun exposure alters both the content and distribution of dermal glycosaminoglycans
TLDR
Investigating the relative GAG content of photoaged skin using immunoperoxidase stains specific for hyaluronic acid and chondroitin sulphate and confocal laser scanning microscopy reveals that the increased dermal GAGs in sun‐damaged skin are deposited on the elastotic material of the superficial dermis of photodamaged skin, and not between collagen and elastic fibres as in normal skin. Expand
Pathophysiology of premature skin aging induced by ultraviolet light.
TLDR
Multiple exposures to ultraviolet irradiation lead to sustained elevations of matrix metalloproteinases that degrade skin collagen and may contribute to photoaging. Expand
Structural and functional changes of normal aging skin.
TLDR
Structural and functional alterations caused by intrinsic aging and independent of environmental insults are now recognized in the skin of elderly individuals, including a decreased growth rate of the epidermis, hair, and nails, delayed wound healing, reduced dermal clearance of fluids and foreign materials, and compromised vascular responsiveness. Expand
Photoaging of the skin from phenotype to mechanisms
TLDR
A decrease in the overall ROS load by efficient sunscreens or other protective agents may represent promising strategies to prevent or at least minimize ROS induced photoaging. Expand
Telomere length of the skin in association with chronological aging and photoaging.
TLDR
Comparison of telomere lengths revealed that the epidermis has shorter telomeres than the dermis, and the evidence thatTelomere shortening is associated with photoaging of the skin could not be shown. Expand
Intrinsic aging vs. photoaging: a comparative histopathological, immunohistochemical, and ultrastructural study of skin
TLDR
Collectively, the aging processes, whether intrinsic or extrinsic, have both quantitative and qualitative effects on collagen and elastic fibers in the skin. Expand
Skin aging: a role for telomerase and telomere dynamics?

TLDR
The question whether in the epidermis telomerase is able to counteract telomere erosion and thereby to prevents a Telomere-dependent aging process and consequently which part of the skin is responsible for the most obvious changes associated with skin aging is raised. Expand
[Skin of the aging human being].
TLDR
Cutaneous aging includes true aging and photo-aging due to sun exposure, where collagen bundles become fragmented, less elastic and more brittle, and Telomere shortening at the end of chromosomes is probably the major mechanism of cellular senescence in skin. Expand
Vitamin A antagonizes decreased cell growth and elevated collagen-degrading matrix metalloproteinases and stimulates collagen accumulation in naturally aged human skin.
TLDR
It is indicated that naturally aged, sun-protected skin and photoaged skin share important molecular features including connective tissue damage, elevated matrix metalloproteinase levels, and reduced collagen production. Expand
Molecular basis of sun-induced premature skin ageing and retinoid antagonism
TLDR
It is proposed that elevated metalloprotein-ases, resulting from activation of AP-1 and NF-KB by low-dose solar irradiation, degrade collagen and elastin in skin, which would result in solar scars, which through accumulation from a lifetime of repeated low- dose sunlight exposure could cause premature skin ageing (photoageing).
