    Preventing the Causes of Aging and Protecting our Cells

    Q: What are some key causes of aging and what you can tell us about YOUTH Skin Care and how it helps?

    What comes to mind is the science behind YOUTH; one of the key aspects is that it’s formulated to address the key causes of aging. Our skin is constantly under assault from the environment, and free radical damage accelerates aging of our skin. So to be effective you have to have a technology that protects the skin against those assaults. But in addition, a lot of the latest anti-aging science revolves around the skin’s regenerative processes. When you look deeper, our skin produces collagen and elastin; these are proteins in the skin that keep our skin supple, keep it firm, and prevent wrinkles from forming. But after the age of 20 our skin produces less collagen and elastin every year, and over the course of a lifetime that has a dramatic impact on our skin. Up to 80 percent of the thickness of our skin is lost as we age. So if there is a way to intervene in that loss as we age, we have a really effective scientific approach—and we did just that. read more -->

    The Throwaway Culture

    I am not sure when this dilemma began, but there has been a growing disregard for those of us who are over 60 and considered outdated, often useless and even unwanted as we age. We, as senior citizens, have even bought into this cultural phenomenon!

    We “Throwaways” have been pushed out of jobs, often in the name of cost cutting, and left companies devoid of experience and the wisdom that has come with it. The average CEO in the US is just over 45 with only 3 years at a given company – do you think they are missing out on valuable expertise that comes with historical knowledge? In European countries, on the other hand, the average CEO’s is over 50 and has been with their company over 30 years. read more -->

    A Special Olympics Universal Message

    I watched the opening ceremony to the Special Olympics and my eyes swelled with tears. As the Olympians and the police volunteers, who have collected funds around the world for the Special Olympics, wound their way down a ski slope at night each holding a lighted torch to bring in the flame of hope to the center stage, I was moved by the harmonious music, softness of the flow and quiet awe of the crowd. I was struck by the beauty of the mix of nations participating as friends, co-contestants and examples of what could be in creating unity and peace among people. read more -->
