The quest for everlasting youth is more than skin deep. A Danish 7-year study, involving 387 pairs of twins, found that the younger-looking twin tend to outlive the older-looking one significantly.

Probably a combination of genes & environmental influences over your lifetime is important.

Biologically, fresh-faced individuals tend to have longer telomeres, a component of DNA that is linked to aging.

Those who had a tougher life (which is reflected on their faces) had shorter lifespan.

Certainly healthy lifestyle choices will not only make us feel better but also look younger.

Remember – Our outward reflection is a sign of what goes on inside.

So eat right, exercise, quit smoking, put on SPF and manage your stress!
