Researchers think they may have found a connection between aging gracefully and ... Acne!
Published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, The Doctors discuss this new study that says acne sufferers are more likely to live longer because their cells have a built-in protection against aging which is likely to make them look even more youthful later in life. Signs of aging such as wrinkles , thinning skin appear much later in people who have experienced acne.
The study looked at 1,200 twins, 25% of whom reported having had acne. White blood cells taken from individuals affected by acne showed they had longer protective caps on the ends of their chromosomes called telomeres. These shrink over time, so people with longer telomeres age more slowly than those with short ones. "So maybe we shouldn't be so upset when we wake up in the morning and we have a few of our little zit friends," says ER physician Dr. Travis Stork.
