Summer Skincare Switch Up

What Products Patients Should Keep, Add, Trade or Toss

All informed beauty experts know that a season change means a skincare routine change for your patients. With summer just around the corner, we’re sharing our thoughts on which skincare products to instruct patients to keep in their routine, add to their routine, trade out for the season, or toss all together.

Cleanser

Instruct your patients to trade out their hydrating cleanser for a less hydrating foaming or gel cleanser. Dry winter months are behind us, so they can move on to a lighter cleanser. They should look for one that has antibacterial ingredients, like NanoSilver, to help avoid any breakouts from summer sweat and environmental pollutants, which tend to be heavier in the warmer months.

 Toner

Patients should keep toner in their daily skincare routine. In summer, just as in the other seasons, skin needs a  “helper” to normalize pH levels and prepare it to receive corrective actives from targeted treatment products. Instruct your patients to continue toning morning and night after cleansing, using a gel toner to ensure ocular safety.  And they should go easy on the misting sprays as typically, those contain mostly water, which only dehydrates skin further.

Facial Serum

We recommended patients keep or trade out their facial serum, depending on what serum they are currently using. If the facial serum treats multiple skin concerns, like our Cell Revive Serum Complete, then patients can continue using it throughout all the seasons. However, if your patient tends to experience increased sun damage, such as sunspots and hyperpigmentation during summer months, recommend they switch out their winter serum for a Brightening Serum to help keep skin tone even and their complexion glowing.

Eye Serum

Recommend patients keep their eye serum year round. The eyes are the first place to show aging (along with the hands!) – via wrinkles, dark circles, crow’s feet and puffiness – and eye serums and creams are specifically formulated for the delicate skin around the eyes. Instruct your patients to look for a complete formulation that addresses all aspects of eye care to erase the signs of aging without endangering the fragile, sensitive skin of the orbital eye area.

Moisturizer

Patients should be instructed to trade out their heavier winter moisturizer for a lighter summer one. Using a moisturizer that is too hydrating during the hot summer months can make skin feel sticky or slimy, and can contribute to unsightly breakouts.  Have your patients switch to a lighter moisturizer or lotion that lightly hydrates skin and absorbs easily.

SPF

Toss. Yes we said toss! The start of summer is the perfect time to recommend that your patients toss their old sunscreens and buy new ones. Sunscreen shelf life varies depending on its ingredients. Have your patients check the date stamped on the packaging, instructing them to toss any products where the expiration date is hard to read, or if it’s been open for a year or more. For optimal sun protection as well as texture, sterility and stability, recommend they only use sunscreen prior to its expiration date as well.

Mask

We recommended patients keep up with their weekly masking, even during warmer months. In addition, if their skin is on the oilier side, during the summer months they may want to increase the number of times they use it to two or three times per week. Instruct your patients to look for a mask that contains natural and organic ingredients to keep skin healthy while exfoliating and deep-cleaning skin.

Scrub

Recommend your patients add a gentle, natural scrub to their skincare routine if they haven’t been using one already. Time spent at the beach, pool or lake can make skin dry and dirtier than usual. Scrubs can gently slough off that top layer of dead skin and reveal the healthy glow while helping to clear pores of dirt and debris, staving off breakouts.

Game Changing Skincare Ingredients

Are Stem Cell Extracts the New AHA/BHA’s?

Game changing products, ingredients and inventions don’t always catch on right away. Starbucks was founded in 1971, but didn’t take off until after 1983. Twitter started out as a site called Odeo. Ever heard of it? We didn’t think so. And so it is with skincare ingredients too. Up until stem cell technology came into the skin care industry a few years back, the most game-changing ingredient was the inclusion of alpha and beta hydroxy acids (AHA/BHA) in skincare.

However, like most game changers, AHA/BHAs were not readily acknowledged as a positive innovation. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved AHA’s for over the counter sale in 1992. But, initially AHA/BHAs were not widely accepted by consumers and were even criticized by the FDA, even after their approval. 

Let’s admit it – putting acid on your skin seems totally counterintuitive, right?

Even EWG’s Skin Deep quoted the FDA’s Office of Cosmetics and Color as recent as 1999 saying, “Very little about the process restricts the sale [of AHA/BHAs]. It’s a somewhat alarming idea to put acids on the skin. It raises obvious safety questions.”

Fast-forward to almost two decades later, and AHA/BHAs are in nearly every anti-aging product on the market. No longer considered “risky” or “a fad”, these acids are used to reduce wrinkles, lighten dark spots, smooth skin and renew a beautiful complexion. And no one finds it an “alarming idea to put acids on” their face. AHA/BHAs can be found in skincare from high-end products, to department store brands, to drug store items. In short, they revolutionized the anti-aging skincare industry, despite the initial back lash from consumers, watch dogs and government agencies alike.

The same could be said for stem cell technology in skincare. Hitting the cosmetic market first in Europe in 2007, stem cell technology was already buzzing in the medical fields as a miracle innovation and a game changer. Advancements were already being seen in healing post-surgical conditions and hope was widespread that stem cells would be the answer to curing many diseases and conditions that had alluded doctors – until now.

However, much like AHA/BHA’s, consumers were not as quick to accept stem cell technology in skin care products. Controversy and misunderstanding surrounded, stem cell technology in skincare. However, most of it is old mythology based on half-truths and fear from businesses who resist change and whose bottom line relies on the stayed technologies from days gone by.  But like everything, if we are to advance, we must grow and change and offer better solutions for keeping skin healthy and youthful, without injections or surgery, especially now as more and more people are choosing to stave off more aggressive procedures for as long as possible.

Some people fear that using stem cells in skincare can be dangerous. However, there are no stem cells or DNA in skincare products…ever! Stem cells are much too large and fragile to survive the skincare formulation process. What the products do contain are the healing peptides the stem cells secrete. Others site ethical issues, thinking that the stem cells harvested for cosmetic use come from fertilized human eggs (embryonic stem cells). While some companies do use this source, most do not. So it is important to check company information closely. The best stem cells used for skin care formulation are Adult Mesenchymal Stem Cells, which come from adult human donors who are vetted and certified much in the same way organ donors are. 

And much like the AHA/BHAs of the past, the fear of the advancement of stem cell technology in skincare is unfounded, and totally incorrect, with peer review journals in the medical filed touting their efficacy on the skin.

Clinical studies being conducted on skin care products utilizing stem cell technology continue to astound and impress the industry. And while stem cell technology will be an integral part of the future of skin care because it mimics the natural renewal process of our body (and our skin), its main benefit is the assistance in epidermal and collagen production. A good skin care product line also needs to address hydration, environmental protection, evening of skin coloration, skin nutrients and cellular health, as well as other specific issues. At Stemology, we have found that many other ingredients are necessary in our formulations to properly address these multiple needs.  We understand there’s no one trick pony when it comes to skin health, but that it’s the formulation in total that delivers the targeted benefits customers desire.

Stem cell technology in skincare is already showing great advancements. Stemology continues to be on the cutting edge as the leader in Stem Cell use in skincare, as well as the ethical implications and safety of formulations utilizing extracts from Stem Cells.

Skin Care In Your 40’s and Beyond vs. Your 20’s

Should A Skincare Routine Be Changed With Age?

“Nature gives you the face you have at twenty; it is up to you to merit the face you have at fifty.” – Coco Chanel

It goes without saying that as we age the way we approach life changes, sometimes drastically. And why would it be any different with skincare? So as we move on into the “golden years” of our lives, let’s take a look at the differences in the approaches to skincare, and we’ll give you some tips on how to help your Clients make the most out of their skincare routine as they enter their 40’s and beyond.

Cleansing

In Our 20’s: Wash my face? Maybe. But I’ll probably just stay up late and fall into bed with a full face of makeup on.

In Our 40’s: Wash my face? Yes, religiously! By now we know that cleansing morning and night is a “have-to” not a “want-to.” But we can help customers improve the quality of cleansing by recommending cleansers that are natural and even organic (we’ve probably done enough damage with the Noxema cleansers of our youth!), and that have additional hydrating properties required for skin that tends to become drier as we age.

Toning

In Our 20’s: Whatever can help dry out the occasional breakouts is on the list. Seabreeze anyone?

In Our 40’s: We now know how drying and harmful alcohol astringents can be, and we also understand what pH levels are and why they are important to maintain. (See, chemistry class was good for something!) For optimal results, recommend a toner with additional herbal botanicals and extracts that will help prep the skin to optimally receive the corrective active ingredients from treatment products.

Facial Treatment

In Our 20’s: Aside from the occasional acne spot treatment, cleansing and applying moisturizing make up are the basic facial routine (if that!).

In Our 40’s: During our 30’s, our treatment product focus started to move from acne and sun damage to wrinkles and collagen improvement. But in our 40’s, we’re fully immersed in all things anti-aging and are tailoring our skincare treatments accordingly. Help your clients switch up their treatment products as the seasons change, and their activities differ, before their skin tells them to do so. Recommend the treatment product that is best for their skin concerns at that specific time.  They’ll love it!

Treatment Booster

In Our 20’s: You want me to buy two treatment products? I barely use one treatment product.

In Our 40’s:

Consumers have now become novice skin care mixologist, but they still need the support and guidance of a skincare professional. This is where you shine. If it’s after summer, make sure clients are boosting their brightening regimen. If it’s winter, it’s a good time for them to start boosting their collagen production and moisturizing products. Customizing skincare routines is your passion, and you know the value of two treatment products vs. one. Recommend client’s use a basic, multi-active treatment product, and then “boost” their results by layering a more specific treatment product over it, like a brightening or collagen boosting, wrinkles reducing serum, to really focus in and target.

Eye Treatment

In Our 20’s: Eye cream? What’s that?

In Our 40’s: Consumers are still learning the difference between an eye cream and an eye serum, and need to be addressing the delicate eye area both morning and night. Crow’s feet, sallow skin, dark circles and sun damage around the delicate eye area have become an obsession with the skincare purchasing public. Recommend formulas that treat all these aging symptoms in one product and your Client’s will see you as a time-saving here!

Moisturizing

In Our 20’s: Of course I moisturize! After cleansing with Noxema and toning with Seabreeze, but my skin feels really dry.

In Our 40’s: We know the value of having two different moisturizers – one formulated for daytime and a one specifically for overnight, but consumers?  Not so much. “As you sleep, skin, like the rest of the body, does the majority of its repairing, restoring and regenerating. A good night cream should be designed to focus on repair, recovery and hydration,” says Dr. Hal Simeroth, Chief Technical Officer for Stemology. Make sure you’re your Client’s are educated about the difference and the need for both.

Sunscreen

In Our 20’s: But if I use sunscreen, how can I work on the perfect bronze tan?

In Our 40’s: You already know that sunscreen has now become a non-negotiable. It’s in our daytime moisturizer, and we know to reapply every two hours when outside. As a skincare professional, you’ve seen first hand the damage that being a sun-worshiper and not using an SPF can do to skin – everything from wrinkles to advanced aging to uneven skin tone. Help your clients find a daytime moisturizer that contains an SPF. And advise they look for sunscreen formulations that are chemical-free, natural and organic. And even better, educate them on repairing environmental damage after environmental exposure with after-exposure products proven to stop free radical damage in its tracks.

Professional Treatments

In Our 20’s: Who has the time or money to go to an esthetician?

In Our 40’s: Quarterly facials are a must, if not monthly, to keep cell turnover at optimal levels and ensure the best skin health. And quarterly appointments to a cosmetic dermatologist will help your client’s keep on top of the latest technologies and skincare innovations.

Types of Facial Aging

The 12 Types of Facial Aging

Breaking Down How and Where the Face Ages

Written By: Dr. Hal Simeroth, Chief Technical Officer, Stemology Skincare

Did you know that there are 12 types of facial aging?! Yes…we said twelve! Many skincare lines classify “anti-aging” as one, two or maybe three specific aging types. Maybe it’s wrinkles from your genetic makeup? Maybe it’s hyper-pigmentation from environmental exposure? Or maybe it’s dry skin due to hormonal changes? But the reality is that there is four times the amount of different types of facial aging! Don’t let other skincare brands lump your treatment regimen into one “anti-aging” category!

Stemology looks at the 12 different types of facial aging – and how we can make statistically significant improvements in each of those areas – when creating our products. Recently, we embarked on an ambitious independent clinical trial of our Cell Revive Serum Complete, testing it against the 12 types of facial aging that includes:

  1. Firmness
  2. Elasticity
  3. Hydration
  4. Softness
  5. Appearance of Facial Fine Lines and Wrinkles
  6. Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles Around the Eyes
  7. Appearance of Fine Lines and Wrinkles Around the Mouth
  8. Depth of Wrinkles on Forehead
  9. Facial Deep Wrinkles, including glabellar wrinkles (between the brows)
  10. Hyperpigmentation
  11. Tone/Radiance/Skin Brightness
  12. Pore Size

Heidi_side-by-side_PRINTnew

Test subjects using the Stemology Cell Revive Serum Complete saw statistically significant improvements in all 12 areas of facial aging over an 8 week period:

  • 62% saw an improvement in the glabellar wrinkles
  • 64% saw an improvement in deep wrinkles
  • 73% saw an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
  • 76% saw improved elasticity
  • 79% saw an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles
  • 79% saw an improvement in fine lines and wrinkles of the forehead
  • 79% saw an improvement in facial age/sun/dark spots
  • 79% experienced increased skin hydration
  • 82% saw an improvement in skin brightness
  • 82% saw an improvement in the appearance of pore size
  • 90% saw an improvement in skin firmness
  • 100% saw an improvement in skin softness

How is this possible? Well, Stemology is the first and only brand with StemCore-3, the powerful technology that brings together human and plant stem cell technologies, along with a communicating agent to help drive ingredients deeper where they can do the most good. This results in helping prevent and improve the number one cause of skin aging: the declining production of epidermal, collagen and elastin cells, which results in skin that is dull, thin and wrinkled, lacking both firmness and elasticity. What’s even better is that Stemology products are intelligently organic, natural and do not contain chemical ingredients derived from petroleum, ethoxylates, formaldehyde donors, sulfates, parabens, GMO’s or artificial colors!

Hero or Hype?

Exploring Stem Cell Technology in Skincare

There has been a lot of talk in the last few years about stem cells in skincare. So, is it just a lot of hype or is stem cell skincare the next hero in the search for ageless beauty? Let’s investigate.

What Are Stem Cells?

Stem cells are single cells that can replicate themselves and differentiate into many cell types. There are many different types and are found in humans, animals and plants.

Of the various types of human stem cells, perhaps the most well-known, and most controversial, are embryonic stem cells (sometimes called pluripotent stem cells). These are the very first cells at the early stage of the embryo that are able to selectively produce all of the different tissues of the human body. Using embryonic stem cells such as these for skincare is neither recommended nor necessary. After birth, the repairing stem cells of the body (often called Mesenchymal stem cells or MSC’s) continue the work on conducting the repair and rejuvenation of the various structural parts of body tissues (bone, ligaments, muscles, skin, nerve, eye, etc.). They continue this tissue specific work throughout our lives, but, because they differentiate over time into other types of cells, our number of MSC’s decreases as we age. A third type of stem cell, more differentiated and more tissue specific, are often referred to as progenitor cells. They are in the “center” between stem cells and fully differentiated cells.

Like human stem cells, plant stem cells have the ability to self-renew and replace specific plant cells in need of repair. For example, if you break off a plant stem, it grows back within a few weeks thanks to stem cells. That said, unlike human stem cells, the growth factors, cytokines and other proteins, which are the products of plant stem cells, do not have the ability to act in the same way in humans, as in plants. Plant stem cells communicate in a different biochemical “language” that human cells do not recognize. However, plant stem cells do contribute skin-improving nutrients that attribute to overall skin health

Ethical Concerns

One of the biggest concerns people have about stem cells skincare is the ethics involved. As the Chief Technical Officer of Stemology, I have a PhD in bio-ethics. So, ethics are critically important to me personally. There are no actual stem cells or DNA matter in any skincare product claiming stem cell technology. It is in fact the derivatives of the stem cells – the signaling proteins – that are in the formulations. However, how those derivatives are harvested can vary widely by skincare brand. Make sure to do your research when using stem cell skincare and find out where they are getting their stem cell derivatives. And note that Stemology skincare is the first and only skincare line to use both plant stem cells and adult human MSC stem cells, along with a stem cell communicator, to ethically increase the efficacy and effectiveness of our products.

Does It Work?

Yes! There are a number of research papers from doctors and scientists supporting the concept of MSC protein derivatives aiding in skin repair and rejuvenation. And a body of scientific knowledge is rapidly developing which shows the interaction of these growth factors, cytokines, helper proteins, etc in the repair and rejuvenation process for skin. In other parts of the world treatments are actually being done to repair damaged tissue using MSC’s. In fact, the very well respected Journal of Craniofacial Surgery stated “The application of topical growth factors (from MSC) stimulate the repair of facial photo-aging, resulting in new collagen synthesis, epidermal thickening and the clinical appearance of smoother skin with less visible wrinkles.”

Many are saying that stem cell science will completely change medical care, and the skincare industry, as we know it. It’s an exciting time as we are in the infancy stages which means we can look forward to many more advances to come to help as stay naturally younger looking.

The Collagen Killers

Keep Skin Firm By Avoiding These Collagen Killers

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and is the substance that holds the whole body together. Providing the supporting structure underneath the epidermis that keeps the skin firm and tight, collagen is responsible for the smooth, youthful skin appearance free of wrinkles and sagging.

Collagen production slows down and naturally diminishes due to aging. In order to reduce the appearance of aging and promote beauty it is necessary to find a means of protecting from this slowdown in production to keep the skin support structure in place as it was in our younger days. One way to keep skin youthful is by adding Stemology Skincare’s new Cell Revive Collagen Complete to your skincare regimen to help avoid these collagen killers.

Death By Free Radicals

According to Skin Inc. free radicals are charged chemical particles of oxygen that enter into destructive chemical bonds with organic substances such as proteins. The result is an oxidation, or chemical burning, of the substance, which destroys it. Exposure to free radicals in the environment, such as pollution and sun exposure, is known to lead to oxidative destruction of the skin and the collagen-destroying process that causes wrinkling. Fight free radical damage with antioxidants – from the inside and the outside. Increase your intake of vitamin C, which is a necessary component of collagen production. And check the ingredient list on your skincare products for encapsulated and stabilized vitamin C, which will deliver a stable and consistent dose of antioxidants directly into your skin.

Death By Sun Exposure

One of the worst enemies of collagen is excessive sun exposure. Direct UV exposure can harm collagen fibroblasts. Long-term sun exposure can cause collagen and elastin to breakdown and degrade, faster than normal. Help your skin out by always wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen. Save time by using a moisturizer with SPF every morning on your face. And don’t forget to always apply sunscreen to your arms, neck, chest and hands.

Death By Smoking

Okay, seriously, just don’t smoke. It is bad for about every part of your anatomy…including the collagen in your skin. Smoking destroys collagen and elastin and decreases estrogen, which helps keep skin firm. So, if you are a smoker and want to save your collagen, quit smoking. If you are not a smoker, don’t start! Even casual smoking is a collagen killer!

Death By Dehydration

Dehydration leads to oxidative stress, which produces free radicals. Without moisture, the skin isn’t able to repair itself and suffers even more damage. It’s a vicious cycle. Ensure your collagen is safe by using a moisturizer that infuses skin with moisture while strengthening the skin’s barrier to keep moisture in the skin.

Death By Sugar

A high sugar diet and high blood sugar can cause collagen glycation resulting in a lumpy skin appearance. Collagen is a complex protein; make sure your diet has plenty of healthy proteins (we opt for plant) that supply the amino acids needed for collagen production.

Death By Squinting

Throw on your favorite “sunnies” and keep them on! Constant squinting into the sun causes wrinkles around the eyes and crows feet, damaging the collagen in the skin around your delicate eye area.

Collagen is the main structural protein found in animal connective tissue, which means we need to take care of it! Avoiding any potential collagen killers and aiding it in self-repair with collagen-rich skincare products will help keep skin firm and youthful.

The Skincare Revolution Is Now

Stemology 101

Introducing Stemology Skincare, the world’s first and only all natural, intelligently organic skincare line backed by clinically proven stem cell science. Bringing together both human and plant stem cell technologies – incorporating the superior features of each – along with a stem cell communicator that greatly enhances intercellular communication to maximize the benefit of stem cell “signaling” growth factors, Stemology has a “best of” approach that maximizes any singular anti-aging approach. Stemology products help prevent and improve the number one cause of skin aging – the declining production of epidermal, collagen and elastin cells, which results in skin that is dull, thin and wrinkled, lacking both firmness and elasticity.

StemCore-3™ Technology

The foundational ingredients of Stemology’s flagship products are based upon 20 years of stem cell research and studying the effects of topical application. StemCore-3 is a proprietary stem cell based peptide complex found only in Stemology products. This methodology produces a unique derivative of stem cell tissue that can be absorbed into the skin. Stem cells, in general, rejuvenate. They trigger the production of new healthy cells in the human body based upon the particular organ cells the stem cell is “encoded” to stimulate. Stem cells are our “natural” defense against deterioration of the body. Since stem cells repair deterioration, the lack of available stem cells contributes to the aging of our organs … including the skin, the largest organ of the human body.

Ethics Policy

Ethics are at the center of the Stemology brand. We will maintain our commitment to use only adult human stem cell technology in our research and in the development of our products. We will not use embryonic stem cells in any of our research work, nor will we use them in the production of our stem cell extracts. None of our products will be made from human fetal tissue; nor will any of our research and development be done with any human fetal tissue. We do not use ingredients from animal products or by-products except for those produced by live animals such as milk, honey, lanolin, etc.  We do not use products that were developed using animal testing, nor do we do any animal testing with our products.

Natural and Intelligently Organic

Stemology products are all natural and intelligently organic. We are dedicated, to the natural origin, purity and safety of the ingredients in our products. We are committed to the use of natural ingredients. The term “natural product” as used in the world of skin care often has a wide variation of meanings. Our definition of a natural product is one that has ingredients derived from chemical compounds found in nature, either in a botanical (herb, flower, root, etc), or the human body (Hyaluronic acid, Coenzyme Q10, protein peptides, etc.).

Stemology products are “intelligently organic.” For a product to be labeled organic each ingredient should be certified “organic.”  Although we have a number of certified organic ingredients in our products, not all of our ingredients are so. We are not striving to have certified organic products and will not label them as such unless they truly are.

What will not be found in our natural skin care products are chemical ingredients derived from petroleum, ethoxylates, formaldehyde donors, sulfates, parabens, GMO’s or artificial colors. This is our commitment our customer and the planet.

Stemology Products

Stemology offers a full range of skincare products for all skincare types including, cleansers, toner, facial serums, eye serum, moisturizers, scrub and masks available for retail, and in the back bar for the discriminating aesthetics professional.

Do Skin Care Products Containing Stem Cells Actually Make You Look Younger?

Women’s Health Magazine Asks, Dr. Hal Simeroth of Stemology Answers

Excerpted from Women’s Health, December 9, 2015.

As skin-care brands continue to make crazy-scientific advancements, stem-cell products are popping up more and more in dermatology offices and on makeup counters everywhere. So what’s all the hype about?

Your skin is already packed with stem cells. As you age, you start to lose them, and by the time you hit 50, you’ve lost about 98 percent of them. Yikes! “When you’re young, the average turnover for your skin is about 25 to 30 days,” says Hal Simeroth, Ph.D., chief technical officer and founder of Stemology, a stem cell-based skin-care line. “When we get older, the production slows down, [and] the turnover can take up to 60 days. When it’s exposed to the elements longer, it loses that youthful vibrant look.” That’s where products come in.

Stem cells are not without their controversy, though. The use of embryonic ones for research purposes is a hot-button issue (according to the National Institutes of Health, they’re generally derived from embryos that develop from eggs that have been fertilized through IVF and then donated to research).

While some skin-care companies do use human stem cells, they come from adults, not emrbyos—and most products on the market contain plant-based stem cells. Simeroth explains that the stem-cell skin-care products you see on the shelf don’t even contain actual stem cells, but rather the proteins and amino acids that the youthful cells secrete.

“This is what your body recognizes and can use to help rejuvenate and repair cells,” says Simeroth. “These are the natural body healers.”

The cocktail of proteins and amino acids that are harvested from the actual stem cells themselves signal your own cells to produce more collagen and elastin and ultimately fire up the rejuvenation process. Say hello to the fountain of youth!

It’s important to note that stem-cell science is still in its infancy, and even though not all dermatologists are totally convinced that stem cells by themselves are miracle anti-agers, they do agree that these products are still packed with age-defying benefits.

The key to harnessing these age-defying effects is to start young. “We’re trying to mimic what the body does naturally when you’re younger by resorting the growth factor,” says Simeroth. In other words: Start the stem-cell regimen sooner, and you’ll slow down your natural aging process.
