    Aiutino, pls?
    I smell a typo...

    I'm sure the word they meant is host, in the sense of a great number. (i.e. "the many forces of nature.")

    Horst is a geological term that makes absolutely no sense in this context.

    I had the same doubt but I preferred to wait for a native :cool:

    So that the phrase could be rendered as "Il nostro aspetto fisico peggiora anche in ragione del fatto che siamo esposti a molteplici agenti atmosferici (forze della natura)"

    Yes, a typo. Maybe host. How about worst? A few more words surrounding it will help determine it.
