New Delhi: People have different colours, textures. Some have glowing, fabulous complexion while others have fine wrinkles, spots and rough skin making them look much older than their actual age.

 

But, did you know that there's a quick and easy test you can perform to find out how old your skin is, although the results may leave you surprised.

The technique works like this – simply flip your hand over, pinch a little bit of the skin using your thumb and forefinger and then hold it for five seconds.

 

Once you let go, count how long it takes for your skin to return to its normal form.

The quicker your skin goes back to flat the younger your skin is, according to dermatologist Dr Alexis Abramson, who shared the skin age test with Metro.

If it takes between one and two seconds, your skin's age is under 30, between three and four seconds means it's between 30 and 44, five to nine seconds means it's age 45-50 and if it takes longer than ten seconds to lay flat, you're apparently over 60.

 

In case, your skin age is older than your actual age, worry not! There are plenty of quick fixes that can help.

Remember, the food you eat directly influences your skin's health. Drink lots of water, concentrate on foods that improve and help firm, protect your skin – pomegranate, spinach, broccoli, watermelon, blueberries, fish, etc. However, foods that are high in saturated fats.
