"Elastin is like a trampoline, says Audra Klein, national educator for Botanique by Himalaya, made by Himalaya Herbal Healthcare, Sugar Land, TX; it offers "resilience to the skin as it maneuvers and stretches throughout life. Elastin allows for shape and tautness to be effortlessly upheld." If elastin is healthy and nourished, it helps the skin remain supple and "evade the sagging effects of gravity and fine lines of time," Klein explains. "
"Elastin can be defined as a muco protein that is an important connective tissue in elastic structures in your body. Elastin is like a rubber band which enables your skin and organs to snap back after they have been stretched"
METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
