Special Issue Information
The growing awareness of the importance of keeping skin healthy has led to a boost in the cosmeceutical industry over recent years. In addition to genetic factors, decreased air quality and higher psychological stress in modern society have increased the incidence of skin pathologies. Due to the rise in market demand, the industry is constantly seeking new knowledge to provide efficient therapeutical strategies.
Despite being the largest organ of the human body, the pathways that control skin homeostasis are still not understood in depth. Many skin pathologies such as atopic dermatitis, vitiligo, psoriasis, eczema, ichthyosis vulgaris, among others, still do not have a cure. Additionally, skin cancer, the most common form of cancer, still relies on outdated treatment methods that have several side effects. In addition, skin tissue engineering by stem cell transplant for rejuvenation or wound healing has become an attractive topic recently, but implementation is still in its primary stages. As a result, a deeper understanding of the molecular mechanisms involved in the architecture, differentiation and regeneration of the skin is still necessary to develop novel treatments.
In this Special Issue, we aim to reveal the latest findings in dermal research to further contribute to this expanding field. We welcome all kinds of relevant topics for this subject in the forms of original research, reviews, or commentaries.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
