Allure Magazine: If I Could Turn Back Time

The October 2009 issue of Allure has a very interesting article about our own ability to turn back the clock. The story focuses on a study of 186 identical twins, and how lifestyle choices (weight, alcohol, marital status, smoking, sun exposure) can cause two people with the same DNA to look dramatically different.

Did you know that the longer a woman takes birth control pills or hormone-replacement therapy, and the higher the dose, the more likely she is to look younger? Or that taking antidepressants is generally associated with an older appearance?

The article, Living Young, is on page 228 and the issue is on newsstands right now.
