Consumers continuously face the twin pressures of time and environmental aggressors when it comes to their skin care concerns. And their go-to solution is anti-aging skin care.

A recent survey found that 98% of women agree that taking care of your skin at an early age is the best anti-aging approach, while 94% believe a regular skin care routine will help prevent visible signs of aging.

It's not just older consumers who focus on the prevention and treatment of aging. In fact, 37% of Gen Z respondents ages 18-26 already use anti-aging skin care.

Furthermore, 58% of Gen Z respondents who now buy anti-aging products say they first started to have anti-aging concerns at about age 23, compared to older shoppers who first experienced these concerns at age 35.

Next month, the 4-day Beauty Accelerate Virtual will host "Cutting-Edge Science in the Service of Skin: performance ingredients to fight aging and counter direct environmental exposure," an exclusive briefing from Nadine Pernodet, Ph.D., Senior Vice President at The Estée Lauder Companies (ELC), who will discuss holistic views of aging and the beauty technologies that can address them.

Aging and skin health are impacted by the entirety of our exposome, Pernodet notes, including internal and external factors constantly in flux. This talk will consider mechanisms of aging and skin health from a holistic perspective.

It will also consider facets of our being such as circadian rhythm, emotional states, stress and more, and explore ways to maintain balance for beauty.

Attendees will come away with new insights to fuel business planning, marketing and product development.
