  Bare Skin Care - Skin care is important to all of us, and the skin care products we use are crucial. We all have different areas of concern, from anti-aging skin care and making sure the products we use promote natural skin care to acne reduction and scar reduction.

Telomeres are the endcaps on chromosomes, and telomeric shortening is thought to govern the number of times a cell can divide. In white blood cells (leukocytes), telomere shortening is used as a marker of biological age.  King’s College London (United Kingdom) researchers studied 2,401 twins, tracking their physical activity level, lifestyle habits, and examined the length of the telomeres in the subjects’ white blood cells (leukocytes).The team confirmed that telomere length decreased with age; men and women who were less physically active in their leisure time had shorter leukocyte telomeres than those who were more active.  The mean difference in leukocyte telomere length between the most active subjects (who performed an average of 199 minutes of physical activity per week) versus the least active subjects (16 minutes of physical activity per week) was 200 nucleotides.  This translated to mean that “the most active subjects had telomeres the same length as sedentary individuals up to 10 years younger, on average.”
