A Woman's Skin

Here's something most women won't want to hear, a new study suggests that female skin ages faster than male skin. That comes from German researchers, who used a new laser imaging technique to examine the deep layers of the skin and measure the amount of damage from the sun and natural aging.

It turns out, women lose collagen faster than men and when that happens, in come the wrinkles. The laser technique might one day aid in testing anti-aging cosmetics. The laser examined amounts of collagen and elastin.
