WHAT IS BIOHACKING?
Biohacking is based on the idea of the prolongation of human life by improving the functionality of the human body.
The first biohacking enthusiasts, most of them living in the Silicon Valley, were looking for a better understanding of ageing and molecular “weaknesses” of the body hoping to “hack” it and make a longer life possible.
Under the umbrella of biohacking, you can find a whole spectrum of ideas.
But basically speaking, biohacking is looking for mechanisms of self-regulation allowing to control ageing by using the body’s own potential with a little external help. Sleep, light, physical activity, food, and meditation are 5 pillars of biohacking.
BIOHACKING IN SKINCARE
Skin is the largest organ in the body and skin functionality is largely based on self-regulation.
Skin cells are playing for many teams, including nervous, immune, and endocrine systems, sharing the same biochemical language, constantly reacting to external stimuli and interacting with all the body’s organs and tissues.
A new understanding of the molecular mechanisms of skin renewal, regeneration and self-protection is helping us understand the role of age-related deficiencies and changes in the skin genes expressions as well as the role of peptide signalling or the microbiome.
