In July 2018, it was reported by the University of Alabama at Birmingham that their researchers managed to reverse wrinkled skin and hair loss in mice. When a mutation that led to mitochondria dysfunction was introduced into the animal, Keshav Singh, Ph.D., and his colleagues discovered that the mouse developed wrinkled skin and hair loss within a few weeks.

Then, when they restored the gene function i.e. turned off the dysfunctional mutation, smooth skin and fur grew back on the mouse.

Since mitochondrial function declines during our ageing process, it means that preventive and therapeutic drug strategies can be developed to regulate its function.

Do you know the bbq or barbecue can cause the skin to absorb more carcinogens (polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, or PAHs), even more than the lungs can?

According to a study published by the American Chemical Society, urine samples were analyzed from volunteers who were subjected to varying degrees of exposure to the smoke and food.  While consumption accounted for the largest PAH amount to be absorbed, the skin was the second highest. It was thought that the oils in barbecue likely enhanced uptake of the PAH by the skin. While clothing can reduce skin uptake, the skin can still take in a considerable concentration of PAH once the clothing is saturated. Recommended: Change to a new set of clothing after leaving the barbecue area; wash the dirty ones as soon as possible.

Lead researcher Joan Cook-Mills, at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, is linking a number of factors to trigger infant and childhood allergy:

  • Genetics (skin absorbency)
  • Usage of cleansing wipes (that leaves soap on the skin)
  • Exposure of skin to dust allergens
  • Exposure of skin to food

Data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention revealed an 18% increase (from 1997 to 2007) of reported of food allergy among children under 18 years old.

Her suggestion:

  • Wash your hands before handling the baby during feeding times (to reduce baby skin exposure to food allergens)
  • Limit usage of wipes, especially those that leave soap or cleansing agents on the skin
