Nature or Nurture?
At Last, We Know Why Some Women Look Younger Than Their Years – Nature or Nurture?
You know the ones. The J.Los, and Giseles, and Naomi Campbells of this world – those gals that just never look any older. So what’s their secret? Superfoods… super creams… surgery? Or it could simply be that they’re “exceptional skin agers”, an actual group identified by scientists who are perceived to look younger than they are. Those of us who age better basically won big in the genetic lottery.
‘Exceptional skin agers’ – women who, against the odds, look around ten years younger than they are. While we all possess these genes, the way the genes are expressed in ‘exceptional skin ages’ is different to the average person. What’s exciting about these findings is that the genes that make up this fingerprint may hold the key to successful ageing. For example, the genes responsible for energizing the skin to repair itself and make enough collagen may be more active in younger looking people. These genes also have a positive effect on the skin’s moisture barriers and antioxidant levels. All this means fewer visible signs of ageing.
