Collagen and elastic fibers are the most important structural components in the skin, and their changes during photoaging and intrinsic skin aging have been studied for long time.

Besides collagen and elastic fibers, studying other components like glycosaminoglycans (GAGs) and proteoglycans (PGs) is necessary for better understanding of skin aging.

To find important GAGs and PGs in skin aging process, changes of various GAGs and PGs in intrinsically aged and photoaged skin were investigated.
