The term “inflammaging” has been coined to describe the process of ageing that is driven through inflammatory pathways. While numerous aspects of skin inflammation have been explored, it is curious that, to date, little has been described about one of the most fundamental pathways of skin inflammation signalling and response; Inflammasomes. This paper will describe recent studies we have undertaken looking at how Nod-Like Receptor Protein (NLRP) Inflammasome Complexes form as a result of exogenous contact with various DangerAssociated Molecular Patterns (DAMPs) and Pathogen-Associated Molecular Patterns (PAMPs) and how, after forming, these critical inflammation sentinels release Caspase-1 which commences a powerful pattern of downstream inflammation responses that leads to healing and, in some cases, over-healing. The link between the formation of NLRP Inflammasomes and such critical skin health responses will be explored as will the link between formation of Inflammas
