Listen to your skin's 24-hour body clock
Tuesday, February 20, 2018
Consultant Dermatologist Dr Anjali Mahto was featured in the Daily Mail talking about why you should listen to your skin’s 24-hour body clock.
Research has shown that each skin cell has its own daily clock, determining its behaviour, such as when it’s most likely to be dry, oily, red or itchy.
‘It’s a new and emerging science but an exciting one,’ said Dr Anjali Mahto. ‘It has a number of implications. It may be better to time chemotherapy for skin cancer at a particular time in the skin cell cycle, treatments for eczema may be better at a certain time of day and targeted strategies can be made for skin ageing.’
The article explores the best time of day for timing skincare to achieve the best results from when to moisturise and exfoliate through to when your skin will be looking its best.
