Winter Sugar Scrub

sponsored :: MEVEI

Pomegranate + ylang ylang

In winter, cold weather and low humidity levels result in dry air, which then steals moisture away from the skin. Even doing this five minute hack once a week can help your skin keep looking firm and toned.  

Mix these together and store in a glass airtight container. Before taking a shower apply to your skin and let it stay for about 8-10 minutes. 

Invitation to collaborate

In this presentation given at Ending Age-Related Diseases 2020, Michael Geer of Humanity discusses monitoring the rate of aging and how doing so can encourage the development of therapies and technologies that prevent age-related diseases. He presents himself and his colleagues and discusses the principles and values of his company.

Most promising anti-aging compounds (2021)

There are more than 200 different geroprotective compounds. Some of these are already available as supplements, some are in clinical trials and some have FDA approval. Which are my top five that I think I most promising in terms of their anti-aging effects (so focusing more on healthspan than lifespan). And note the use of “promising” – there is still much work to be done to better investigate the long-term safety, dose and timings of different supplements which you should always bear in mind.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Dr. Hanadie Yousef of Juvena Therapeutics discusses the secretome, the signaling system of cells that affect the behavior of other cells. The secretome of embryonic stem cells encourages other cells to grow and develop, providing a rejuvenative effect. Isolating these proteins and introducing them into aging tissues is the basis for a potential suite of therapies for age-related diseases.

CRISPR potential

While it’s probably most famous for its role in gene editing, CRISPR does more than just that: its ability to precisely cut and alter DNA could lead to new antibiotics, faster diagnosis tools, and more.
