Special Issue "Skin Photobiology"
A special issue of Cosmetics (ISSN 2079-9284).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 March 2018)
The skin is the largest organ of the body and has different functions, such as protection in front of physical and chemical agents. However, because of its exposure to sunlight, skin can suffer from photoageing and cancer due to alterations in epithelial barrier function. The mechanisms of action of sunlight on skin have been studied in depth. Moreover, the interest of the cosmetic industry in the development of novel sunscreen products is based on knowledge regarding the biology of skin.
This Special Issue, "Skin Photobiology", is aimed at presenting the results of the latest research about the adverse effects of light on skin, and how the cosmetic industry can develop new products to avoid this damage to human skin. This overview of the current knowledge in this field is provided through original papers, reviews and short communications.
