The study of foreign researchers on glycation mechanisms and the effect of this non-enzymatic reaction on photodamaged skin are presented. The final products of enhanced glycation - AGEs and their pathogenetic role in skin aging are described. AGEs inhibiting substances, focusing on the prevention of the glycation process, are described.
