Webinar: Preventing Premature Aging: Maintaining Healthy, Youthful Skin
Topic: Preventing Premature Aging: Maintaining Healthy, Youthful Skin (with special guest David Glover):
Do you spend a lot of time in the sun training? According to the American Cancer Society, each year there are more new cases of skin cancer than the combined incidence of cancers of the breast, prostate, lung and colon.
Triathletes and other endurance athletes are susceptible to premature aging from sustained exposure to elements such as sun, pool chemicals and wind. High sweat rates can also dehydrate the skin, causing wrinkling and irritation. Moreover, the skin is an organ and topical solutions such as moisturizers, sunscreens and makeup are absorbed through the skin and into the blood stream affecting our health.
The goal of this webinar is to help you (or your clients if you are a coach) develop a healthy, cost effective skin care regimen to mitigate the signs of premature aging and minimize chance of skin cancer.
Topics covered include:
- Key ingredients in topical skin care and protection products and how they impact your skin
- Foods and supplements that support and enhance skin health
- The effect of procedures like facials and peels on skin health and appearance
- Sun-safe practices to minimize your chances of skin cancer
