Anti-Aging

Even with a longer health-span, that is longer lives and longer active lives, I don't think anyone imagines octogenarians playing golf and windsurfing but looking like their skin is about to fall off their bones. Appearance is important psychologically and also physically when you consider that the skin is the largest organ of the body providing protection against infection and helping control temperature.

Radical life extension advocates typically  suggest that we will want to revert to our 20-something bodies, but in the meantime I'll be tracking scientifically proven products that keep skin and hair healthy.
