Genetics vs Lifestyle: Is Mum To Blame for Your Wrinkles?

Is mum to blame for your wrinkles? A new study suggests that the rate of one's aging is heavily influenced by lifestyle and environmental factors.

During the study, Dr. Guyuron and his colleagues observed 186 pairs of identical twins. Results of the study suggested that “a person’s heritage may initially dictate how they age – but if you introduce certain factors into your life, you will certainly age faster. Likewise, if you avoid those factors you can slow down the hands of time.”

The aforementioned factors include:

- Stress

- Anti-Depressants

- Smoking

- Sun Exposure

- Weight Gain and Weight Loss

The effects of smoking on identical twins. Left: Non-Smoker. Right: Smoker.
