London: For women who think being slim makes you look younger, a new study has found that people over 40 look younger if they have fatter face. During the study, the researchers compared 186 pairs of identical twins and found that shedding pounds could age a woman by an average of four years. Lead researcher Dr Bahaman Guyuron says: "The perceived age of an individual is usually attributed to both genetics and environment in various degrees."
"This volume loss can be compounded by yo-yo dieting, where not only do you create volume loss, but also stretching of the facial supporting ligaments due to repeated facial volume gain and volume loss, which causes deeper nose to mouth lines and jowls," he added. Other factors that had an effect on ageing were divorce, smoking, drinking and sunbathing.ANI
