Did you know that your biological age is different than your chronological age? Your cells and organs have ages that vary from your regular age. Looking younger goes so much deeper than what skincare products you are using, it depends on how you are treating every system in your body.
One system of the body our guest, Emilia Dewi, dives into today is one of the most underrated systems, yet one that must not be neglected: Your Lymphatic System. Emilia explains how there is a connection between your overall health, the areas in the bodies that are in charge of circulation and clearing out toxins, and our skin.
