DEEPER WRINKLES MAY MEAN WEAKER BONES
How wrinkled is your skin compared to your friends’ of the same age? If it’s more so, you might need to take extra care of your bones. Dr Lubna Pal of Yale University found that the more pronounced a woman’s wrinkles were by early menopause, the lower her bone density. The reason is that skin and bone share common building blocks in collagen. As we age, the changes in collagen that cause wrinkles are likely paralleled by similar changes that affect bone.
