Agein.com, the Internet’s premier anti-aging web site focusing on anti-aging tips, news, and advice from some of the foremost experts in the industry, is weighing in on reports that researchers have found a potential way to prevent the aging and deterioration of skin.
While investigating why a lack of the enzyme granzyme B in mice made their blood vessels more resistant to hardening of the arteries, a major cause of heart attacks, researchers at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada discovered that genetically engineered mice retained youthful-looking skin, while normal mice showed signs of aging. To further test their discovery, the researchers constructed a tanning bed to simulate sun exposure, a major cause of wrinkles and aging skin, on mice.

“After 20 weeks of repetitive exposure, the skin of mice lacking granzyme B was smooth and unblemished, while the skin of the normal mice was deeply wrinkled,” says Dr. Kevin J. McLaughlin, anti-aging and health and wellness specialist for Agein.com.
Dr. McLaughlin explains that approximately 80% to 90% of visible skin aging is a result of sunlight. These recent findings show that granzyme B inhibitors could also protect against the loss of collagen, a protein that keeps skin healthy, firm, and elastic, prevent the normal aging process of the skin, and repair sun-damaged skin.
“Further research needs to be conducted to fully understand how a lack of granzyme B helps keep skin looking young and wrinkle-free,” he adds. “That said, this groundbreaking research could lead to specialized drugs that can be used for both cosmetic and life-threatening conditions.”
“Those desiring youthful-looking skin today need to add cutting-edge personal skin care products to their daily anti-aging regime,” Dr. McLaughlin concludes. “To prevent the visible signs of aging, reduce the appearance of fine and deep winkles, improve skin tone and tightness, and relieve eye-puffiness, look for an anti-wrinkle cream and anti-aging eye cream that includes gentle ingredients like Alpine rose, advanced peptides like Matrixyl 3000 and Argireline, and plant stem cell extract.”
