More Dialogue Needed about the Science and Genetics of Facial Aging,
According to New Survey
It’s common knowledge among women that the bond between a mother and her daughter is a strong one. Much is passed from one generation to the next. Daughters inherit everything from wisdom and advice to aging predisposition, as Galderma’s experts of skin health and dermatology know all too well. The question is: why has everyone been so silent? Galderma has just released the results of a study that surveyed mothers and their daughters across the country that concluded that 82% of mothers wish an easier facial aging process for their daughters while more than 50% hardly talk about the issue with them. On February 4th, 2016, Galderma announced its launch of its new Galderma Mom GenesTM. This is an educational campaign that instructs mothers and daughters about facial aging and genetics, inspiring a brighter outlook and more transparent dialogue.
As a start to the Mom GenesTM, Galderma is encouraging women everywhere to demonstrate the effect of “mom genes” in their genetics by recreating a picture of their mothers and posting it to www.MomGenes.com. Galderma has promised to donate five dollars (maximum of $50,000) for each picture that is posted to the National Charity League, Inc. This non-profit organization is committed to strengthening mother-daughter relationships by providing volunteer efforts to cultivate leadership and create a campaign of social understanding.
The president and general manager of Galderma North America, Miles Harrison, said that over Galderma’s 50 years of dedication to female skin health and dermatology, they’ve noticed that the phrase “like mother, like daughter” usually applies in most cases. He went on to say that Galderma is a global leader in researching and studying those maternal bonds and aims to create solutions for the skin’s long-term health.
The results of a Mother-Daughter Facial Aging Survey showed that about sixty-seven percent of women report anxiety about facial aging. A full seventy-seven percent of daughter have noticed that they age similarly to their mothers. Eighty-eight percent of the daughters and ninety percent of the mothers that were surveyed that women are expected to look younger these days as opposed to in decades past. Seventy-seven percent of daughters and sixty-six percent of said that they are interested in facial treatments that produce results that look more natural. Finally, eighty-one percent of mothers said that if their daughters were interested in having a healthcare specialist provide a facial treatment for them, they would be supportive.
Dr. Doris Day, a board-certified dermatologist, stated that with the new “selfie” culture of today, people are more aware of their appearance than ever. She went on to say that a healthcare specialist can give advice to women in their 20s to help promote healthy skin later in life and gives them the opportunity to age gracefully.

Aging is controlled in part by your environment and also by your genetic makeup. Scientists have used facial imaging and three-dimensional models to discover that mothers and daughters usually share similar patterns of aging in their cells and skeletal structures.
Everyone’s aging process is different, though you can expect certain changes to occur starting in your 30s.
• Due to cellular shift, your face can appear to have less volume and look saggy.
• The deterioration of the bones eventually change facial structure
• Thin, dry skin develops due to lack of collagen
