Bare Skin Care - Skin care can be summed up by 3 steps; minimal cleansing; moisturizing as needed and photoprotection (avoiding sun damage.) Once the basics are covered should one then consider: agents that supposedly repair damaged skin; start a regimen of antioxidants that protect your genetic material or consider the use of decorative agents.

Endurance Exercise Turns Back Aging Heart
The heart deteriorates with age, primarily as a result of
lack of physical activity. Researchers from the Washington University
School of Medicine (Missouri, USA) studied a group of 6 men and 6 women,
ages 60 to 75 years, who were not obese but were living an inactive
lifestyle, who were put on an eleven-month program of endurance exercise
under trained supervision. Each subject engaged in walking, running, or
cycling exercises conducted 3 to 5 days each week, for one hour per
session. After three months of exercising to about 65% of their maximum
capacity, then several months at 75% of maximum, the participants’
hearts doubled their glucose uptake, as is found in the case of younger
hearts – an effect that helps to protect the heart against ischemia (low
oxygen) and heart attack.
Consult your anti-aging physician to assess the level of fitness appropriate to your medical needs; s/he will help design an exercise regimen tailored for you.
