Background: The term "exposome" describes the totality of exposures an individual is subjected to from conception to death. Both internal and external exposome factors affect skin health. External exposures that contribute to facial skin aging include solar radiation, air pollution, tobacco smoke, and unbalanced nutrition. The review explores scientific and clinical insights into the exposome impact on facial skin aging and topical mineralizing volcanic water useDo potential Not Copy benefits. Methods: An expert panel of seven dermatologists and two Penalties clinical researchers Apply specializing in aesthetic and dermatological indications reviewed and discussed the literature on the exposome and mineralizing volcanic water's role in relation to the exposome. Two virtual advisory boards were conducted between February and May 2021. Following the meetings, an additional systematic literature review explored publications relevant to the exposome, topical essential minerals, and skin health. The results of the two advisory boards, coupled with expert opinion and the outcome of the updated systematic literature review, informed the statements on which the advisors reached a consensus. Conclusions: A combination of in vivo, in vitro, and clinical data on topical mineralizing volcanic water application indicates that the serum supports the skin's antioxidant defenses and reduces skin inflammation.
