The ways our skin changes throughout our lives can be influenced by sun exposure and preventive care as well as factors we can’t control, like skin disorders and heredity.

Skin imperfections that develop as we age include freckles and sunspots, acne scars, wrinkles, more visible blood vessels, cellulite and other textural and tone changes.

Today’s skin rejuvenation options can treat all of them, for men and women of every age.

Are you training for a marathon or other long-distance event?

Do you work out intensely with weights?

If so, you may want to consult new guidelines recommending that “healthy, exercising individuals” eat more protein.

The guidelines, issued last year by The International Society of Sports Nutrition, recommend getting 1.4 to 2 grams of protein per kilogram of body weight daily.

In other words, an athletic woman of 140 pounds needs 89 to 127 grams of protein a day.
