When you think about the word aging, many thoughts and theories may come to mind, including how the esthetics industry is built upon fighting it. The Harvard study of adult development, often referred to as the Grant Study, is one of the longest-running studies on adult development and aging and provides some very insightful correlations. In this episode of ASCP Esty Talk, Maggie and Ella discuss the Grant Study and share their thoughts on lifestyle and relationships connected to aging.
