As the weather turns cold, many of us dream of going to an tropical island, where we can bask in the sun. But women should be especially careful when planning such a trip, because exposure to the sun ages them FASTER than it does men.
A new laser-based technique images the deeper layers of the skin in order to view the collagen and elastin, whose degeneration causes the appearance of wrinkles and the progressive loss of skin smoothness.
When this is done, physicians are surprised to see large variations from patient to patient, and even from one part of a patient's forearm to another. Dermatologist Johannes Koehler says, "In a healthy 35-year-old, some areas can appear like the skin of a 25-year-old, and others like that of someone who's 50." But one sad fact remains the same: women's skin loses collagen at a faster rate than men's.

In the winter, we not only long for the beach, we also begin to think about the Christmas presents we plan to give, and we have one of the all-time best: our annual 2007 crop circle calendar. This comes all the way from England and our store is the only place you can buy it in the US! One customer wrote, "I bought the 2006 and 2007 calendar for my sister as a Christmas present. When my husband saw them he had to have the 2006 for his desk at work. The crop circle pictures are truly amazing. I did not realize crop circles are so intrinsic and so beautiful. A must have." And if you?re tired of conventional Christmas cards, send crop circle postcards instead! If you know someone whose heart is broken, we have the perfect present to give them.
