Antioxidant Status of Serum by the Wellness Index of the Skin in the Middle Aged Women
Hwa Jung Lee, Hong Seok Ahn, Hyun Sook Bae
This study was performed to analyse the relationship between facial skin condition and serum antioxidant status in 60 female subjects. The skin pore size, roughness, level of pigmentation, and degree of wrinkles were determined and the Wellness Index (WI) was calculated. 20 females with 14-22 points were put into High Wellness group (HW), 19 females with 23-27 points were put into Medium Wellness group (MW), and 21 females who had 28-32 or more points were put into Low Wellness group (LW). Their living habits, moisture of facial skin, sebum content, and antioxidant status of serum were then compared. The result of the HW group showed that they had desirable living habits including eating habits. Also they had high content of facial skin moisture and sebum (p<.0001), low portion of keratin (p<.05), and high elasticity (p<.05). The total antioxidant status (TAS) concentration in blood was highest (p<.05) and the superoxide dismutase (SOD) concentration was lowest in the HW group (p<.001). Catalase (CAT) was highest in the HW group showing significant difference with the LW group which showed lowest CAT concentration (p<.05). The HW group showed rich in facial moisture, had less amount of keratinous tissue (dead skin cells), and had high elasticity. In addition, the concentration of TAS and CAT were also high in HW group. The relationship among the factors malondialdehyde (MDA), antioxidant enzyme, and TAS with the condition of skin showed that as the concentration of antioxidant enzyme and TAS increased the moisture and sebum of facial skin. For such results, desirable antioxidant nutrient condition affect as an affirmative factor to keep healthy skin.
