Special Issue "Skin Aging"
A special issue of Cosmetics (ISSN 2079-9284).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (31 January 2019).
Signs of aging become evident as life progresses, and skin changes constitute the first obvious evidence of the aging process. Skin ages in both men and women through parallel internal and external processes, which contribute simultaneously to a progressive loss of skin integrity. During the aging process, the three-layer skin system changes markedly. There is an increased interest by the cosmetic industry in developing new molecules with the capacity of supporting dermal extracellular matrix organization, essentially improving it and avoiding skin aging.
This Special Issue, "Skin Aging", is aimed at presenting the newest scientific investigations based on both an understanding of the complex processes of skin aging and the study of new molecules, which can be essential for their incorporation in cosmetic products, which fight against skin aging. This overview of the current knowledge in this field will be provided through original papers, reviews and short communications.
