The British Skin Foundation and ITN Productions Industry News are co-producing The Ages of our Skin, a news-style programme taking an unfiltered look at skin across all age groups. From delicate infant skin to the hormonal havoc of puberty and menopause, to issues around more senior skin, the programme will raise awareness and understanding of different skin conditions and the importance of skin care across all ages.

It will address the myths and misinformation with clear, science based advice from industry experts, exploring new developments in the world of dermatology and will highlight BSF’s role in funding research into advancements of treatment and cures. The Ages of our Skin will hear from those living with different skin conditions and will shine a light on what more needs to be done to prevent stigma so that people of all ages can be comfortable in their own skin.

The programme will combine interviews with the industry figures, news-style reports and sponsored editorial profiles from leading organisations and industry innovators in studio and on location. The programme will launch at the British Association of Dermatologists’ Annual Conference taking place on 5th July 2022 at the SEC, Glasgow and will be supported by an extensive marketing communications campaign led by BSF and supported by ITN Productions.
