A photo of a 63-year-old grandmother is going viral for her youthful appearance. On Sunday, a man named Chavo Lotti tweeted a photo of the woman, writing, “My grandma turned 63 yesterday,” and the Internet went nuts over the woman’s wrinkle-free visage and dewy glow, not to mention her oversized topknot and colorful overalls.
People tend to think about the eyes first when it comes to your physical appearance revealing your age. While it’s true that this is one of the most recognized areas of the face to show the signs of aging (we’re talking to you, crow’s feet), your lips could be giving your age away. As funny as that seems, there is now actually a lip age calculator that virtually detects how old your lips appear.
When University of Maryland researchers tested methylene blue on a 3D simulated model of skin, they found that it could actually make the skin look younger.
According to a new study published in the journal “Psychonomic Bulletin & Review,” people who smile are perceived as two years older than their actual age.
My goal is for my face to feel baby soft and look like I just sprayed it with a beauty elixir, and I reached that goal after a week of using Pure Vitality.
Beets are a common sweetening ingredient in the juices you’ll find at most health food stores, but a recent study found another reason to drink the bright red juice: It has anti-aging benefits. Researchers at Wake Forest University knew that exercise has positive anti-aging effects on the brain, and were looking for ways to increase those benefits. “What we showed in this brief training study of hypertensive older adults was that, as compared to exercise alone, adding a beet root juice supplement to exercise resulted in brain connectivity that closely resembles what you see in younger adults,” W. Jack Rejeski, co-author of the study, told EurekAlert.
Contrary to popular belief, older adults need more — not less — slumber, according to an April 2017 study published in the journal Neuron. In fact, lack of quality shut-eye among senior citizens can raise their risk of memory loss and suffering wide range of mental and physical disorders, such as Alzheimer’s disease, heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and stroke. “Nearly every disease killing us in later life has a causal link to lack of sleep,” Matthew Walker, senior author of the study and professor of psychology and neuroscience at the University of California, Berkeley, stated in a press release.
Cindy Crawford can thank her daughter, Kaia Gerber, for helping the supermodel recreate her natural hair color. Anyone familiar with the iconic photos of supermodel Cindy Crawford in her heyday during the 1980s and ’90s will remember the beauty’s trademark look — and no, we don’t mean her facial mole. Now 51 (and still stunning), Crawford admits she dyes her hair, but one challenge she encounters is recapturing the hue she was born with.
Investigators conducted an online survey and showed the volunteers photos of 13 women (faces only) without indicating if the pictures were taken before or after having “optimal” cosmetic surgery.
Repeating segments of DNA called telomeres shorten over time, paving the way for disease and other not-so-great effects of aging. Remarkably, though, those telomeres can also lengthen, based largely on our lifestyle behaviors.
Lycopene, a key ingredient found in all varieties of tomatoes, was shown in the research to protect skin against sun-ray-induced damage. Skin biopsies showed that gene expression responsible for guarding cells against photo-aging and oxidative stress were greater in the group ingesting tomato carotenoids or lutein than in the group that was not. Research shows that ultraviolet exposure is the major preventable cause of skin aging, says Joshua Zeichner, M.D., director of cosmetic and clinical research in the department of dermatology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York.
Let’s face it, aging is inevitable. There are certain areas of the body that age quicker than others, but for some strange reason, many of us tend to forget our hands as being a huge part of that equation. “The skin on the hands is very thin like the skin underneath our eyes. Therefore, it is very fragile,” says Dendy Engleman, a board-certified dermatologic surgeon and associate at Manhattan Dermatology and Cosmetic Surgery. “Like our face, our hands are often exposed to the elements and you add cleaning, drying, and other activities on top of that.”
