Learn how to get glowing skin
We at the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center believe our skin is amazing. In humans it is the largest organ of the integumentary system which protects the body from damage. It can have up to seven layers of ectodermal tissue and guards the underlying muscles, bones, ligaments and internal organs. The thinnest skin is found in our eyelids and the thickest is on the soles of our feet.
Every inch of your skin has an exact stretchiness and strength for its location, so the skin on your knuckles is different from the skin on your stomach.
We spend so much time worrying about our heart and brain health, which is very important, but little on taking care of our skin. To address skin health we have invited Julie Guenette, Ph.D., MScN, who is the director of Outreach and Development of Age Wise Institute at the National University of Natural Medicine in Portland, to present an evidence-based nutritional science program focused on how to get your skin to glow.
She will discuss how essential oils and hydrosols can aid in keeping your skin healthy. This is a perfect opportunity to learn about what you can do to keep your skin glowing. The presentation will take place at the center from 1 to 3 p.m. Oct. 19. The program is free, but registration is required as space is limited. Call 503-635-3758 to reserve a seat.
The lunch menu this week features cabbage rolls on Friday, Oct. 6, Moroccan chicken on Monday, Oct. 9 and spaghetti and meatballs on Wednesday, Oct. 11. Cost is a suggested donation of $4 for those 60 and over and $5 for everyone else.
