The skin is the largest organ in human organism, which is continuously exposed to outer environment such as various pathogens, chemical agents, and solar radiation. These extrinsic factors causes significant changes in skin homeostasis by affecting specific molecular characteristics and biochemical processes. These changes have effects on various parameters of skin aging such as wrinkle formation, skin elasticity, and even metabolic alteration.

Although many research regarding harmful or beneficial effects by these extrinsic factors have been performed, their underlying specific mechanisms are not still remained to be elucidated.

Here, I will present our studies on physiological phenomenon affected by specific environmental factors and their underlying novel mechanisms. These works will be helpful for providing new formulations to improve or protect mammalian skin homeostasis.

Key words: Extrinsic Factor, Skin, Aging, Cell Homeostasis, Therapeutics
