She’s part of a burgeoning field of digital influencers. According to Nicole de Ayora, CCO of Brud, the company... Continue reading…

(University of Tsukuba) Researchers from the University of Tsukuba have shown by in vitro experimentation that changes of glycans in mouse epidermal stem cells may serve as a biomarker of aging.
