    Bojana,
    I appreciate your saying “slow the aging process”. I believe by taking good care of yourself you can minimize the effects of aging on your body. But I also believe we should accept aging as a natural progression of life. I have known too many that didn’t get the chance to get wrinkles.
    I enjoy your posts and find they have balance.

      So well said Maria! I absolutely agree. Embracing the natural process of life and doing our best to cultivate physical and mental wellbeing are things we often forget to do in search of a “quick fix” or a superficial goal. It is important to remember what truly matters and what brings us and those around us joy. Part of this is nourishing ourselves, of course, among other dimensions of collective wellness.

    I enjoyed this video like all your videos; however, I think it might be interesting to talk about “premature aging” i.e. due to sun exposure from an early age and that our skin has a memory, in that if we’ve over-exposed ourselves to the sun and outdoor elements in general, then our skin is likely to age prematurely.
    I would be interested in knowing more about how effective “waterproof” sunscreens are for those of use who like to go in and out of the water in the summer albeit the sea or swimming pools, likewise what kind of sunscreen protection is advisable for young children and the elderly.

    Thanks

      Thank you for your comment – great point Juanita. There are definitely concerns around appropriate sunscreen use and how this applies in a situation when we are spending time in water. This EWG article addresses some of the issues with labeling sunscreens waterproof vs. water resistant and what we can expect: http://www.ewg.org/enviroblog/2015/07/what-happened-waterproof-sunscreens. Personally, I err on the side of caution when applying sunscreen on myself or my kids. I apply liberally (at least SPF 30), and do not count on long lasting protection after swimming.

      I agree Juanita. I see a lot of people who used to bake their skin in baby oil and do have significant sun damage as a result. There are a number of factors that can play a role in premature aging including smoking, sun exposure, etc. When viewing sunscreen you should look for the water resistant label (40 or 80 minutes) and remember to reapply if you are in the sun and water!
