Dr Irena Eris Telomeric Cream
DNA protection - Dramatic Anti Ageing
Hold onto your hats, we’re going science nerd here. In 2009, three scientists (two of them women, FYI) were jointly awarded the Nobel Prize for their research into telomeres and their role in ageing. Telomeres are like little protective caps on the end of your chromosomes. Normally, when our skin cells reproduce, we lose a little bit of our telomeres each time. This means over time the cell ages biologically - think of it like a photocopy of a photocopy. Their research concluded that if you could protect the telomeres, you could give cells ‘eternal life’.Their research has now inspired a new generation of skincare designed to rejuvenate your telomeres, resulting in dramatic anti-ageing.
L'Occtiane Almond Shower Oil
