It stands for the Antioxidant Response Element (ARE). The “i” in science represents “the induction of." Hence AIRE represents the activation of this powerful anti-aging pathway. Inducing this key anti-aging pathway results in the transcription and translation of protective genes that play a major role in the anti-aging process. Activation of the AIRE pathway protects skin cells from oxidative stress, which remains one of the best etiologies to explain the mechanism of aging. If you study the process of aging as we do for disease, we begin to understand pathways and how to inhibit these steps. In doing so, we create healthier cells, slowing down aging. In a sense, we are practicing preventative medicine versus reactive medicine. Healthy skin is beautiful skin.
