For many years, researchers believed that genetics trumped lifestyle when it came to the aging of the skin. Not true, claims a new international study published in England’s The Telegraph. The study, which evaluated 585 women over the course of 8 years, discovered that lifestyle choices can account for as much as 33 percent of how old an individual looks.
The study focused on lifestyle habits such as cigarette smoking, sun bathing, sunscreen use, alcohol intake and other factors that encourage free radicals and the degeneration of youthful skin. Though the women involved in the study were all the same age, the difference in their perceived age because of these unhealthy habits was 10 years. The verdict? Women with healthy lifestyle habits look younger.
