Rinky Kapoor answers Skin Related Queries to the Editor Madhurima Sinha Roy, Sananda Magazine

  • What role does gene play in determining the quality of skin?

Ans) As with all of our other organs, our skin quality, tone, function and rate of aging is determined not only by external factors such as diet, stress, and pollution, but also by genetic factors.  Surely, many of us have come across women and men with flawless skin, though they do almost nothing to take care of the skin, and some, who despite taking obsessive care of their skin never achieve their dream of a good skin.

The tendency to have pimples, pimple scars, pigmentation, sensitive skin, skin aging and cancers is largely determined by genetics.

Fair/red haired- blue eyed individuals like Europeans will have more “problematic”, damage prone skin compared to darker complexioned, brown eyed Indians and Asians.

Europeans age rapidly compared to Asians and are readily damaged by the sun causing problems like freckles, skin cancers etc. On the other hand, Indian skin tends to scar and pigment easily. Even amongst Asians, the Japanese and Koreans have better skin quality in terms of tone, texture and health as compared to most Indians.
