The British Skin Foundation and ITN Business launch “The Ages of our Skin”, a news-style programme raising awareness and understanding of skin health and the different skin conditions across the ages.

The Ages of our Skin features a studio interview with skin experts Consultant Dermatologist Dr Anjali Mahto and the British Skin Foundation CEO Matthew Patey discussing skin concerns across the ages, deceleration of the ageing process, and the work the British Skin Foundation are doing to address the minefield of information and misinformation available.

The programme also includes a film from the British Skin Foundation with Consultant Dermatologist Dr Emma Wedgeworth showing how the body’s largest organ can be affected across the ages, alongside five reporter-led films from the following partners:

  • Ameliorate is a dermatological skin care brand providing clinically proven products to treat Keratosis Pilaris
