Every day, I talk to patients about maintaining and improving their beautiful skin. I always talk about sunscreen as the No. 1 anti-aging product. Daily sunscreen use, even on cloudy days, really can minimize environmental wear and tear and reduces the signs of skin aging significantly.
Mark Twain once wrote, “Good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: This is the ideal life.” New research has proven him spot on, especially about the friends part. A study at the Center for Aging Studies at Flinders University in Australia found that people with a strong network of friends tend to live 22 percent longer than people without one.
