Fewer wrinkles linked to lower blood pressure and heart disease risk: study
This finding gives rise to new ways to communicate the significant additional benefits of a healthy lifestyle,” Dr David Gunn, Unilever Senior Scientist said , in a news release. “Not only this, but we also found that the feature in the face that blood pressure was linked to was not skin wrinkles but likely what we term as the ‘sag’ in the face. The exciting thing is further investigations will enable exact pin-pointing of the feature in the face that signposts an individual’s blood pressure.” Researchers also noticed that participants from a family with an extended life expectancy looked younger with less skin wrinkling on upper arm compared to another group with the same age.This made them to conclude that life expectancy can be predicted by just observing the ageing process of the skin. Their findings also found a strong link between familial longevity and youthful appearance. “Our initial findings suggest that families who age healthily are also endowed with slower skin ageing and, for males, a more youthful face. The next stage is to understand what is happening inside the skin of these youthful individuals to find out more about their ageing secrets,” Gunn, explained. Researchers expect that their findings would encourage people to follow a healthy lifestyle.
