How Old is Your Skin?

Our skin isn't always the same age we are. Over time, depending on our lifestyle choices, our diet, and our genetics, our skin may show signs of aging that make us look older than we really are. Our skin may lose its fullness and elasticity, show creases and wrinkles, become drier, or even bruise more easily. There are many anti-aging products out there designed to reverse these signs, but we can reverse these signs by just changing our habits and what we eat.
