Danish research has uncovered a remarkable fact in a study comparing twins. If you ‘look younger’ you ‘live longer’.
The Reason For This?
The study does not come up with any conclusions on this and it could be like what came first ‘the chicken or the egg?’
Happy, confident people live longer.
People With Stressful Unhealthy Lives Age Faster
On the other hand people who have stressful, hard, unhealthy lives age faster. For example smoking is an unhealthy life choice that adds years to your face by creating free radicals, decreasing oxygen in your blood leading to more wrinkles. It also means you are more likely to die younger.
Stress also takes a large toll on aging, stress causes chronic inflammation in our skin and bodies. This not only makes us look older but can lead to disease.
