Started this morning off with a 5 a.m. workout and now it is time for my first residency interview. I'm so thankful God has me on this wonderful Journey and so blessed with such incredible friends and family for their support along the way. God bless and prayers to all the medical students who are also going through residency interview season.

Muitos se espantam ao perguntar a idade de uma pessoa e achá-la mais nova ou mais velha. Isso acontece pois a idade cronológica, é diferente da biológica. A idade influencia apenas o envelhecimento cronológico, mas hábitos como a alimentação e cuidados diários são determinantes para o aspecto envelhecido ou jovial da pele.
Existem dois tipos de envelhecimento, o intrínseco e o extrínseco. O intrínseco é determinado pelo envelhecimento cronológico, relacionado à idade real da pessoa; o extrínseco pelos hábitos de vida, como exposição solar e poluição, fumo, alimentação e exercícios físicos.
Cuidados como filtro solar, ácido retinóico e vitamina C são fundamentais para retardar o envelhecimento, combatendo a baixa produção de colágeno.
The Bunker Brothers..
