Women more prone to wrinkling than men
A new study has confirmed that women wrinkle more easily than men.
The researchers have attributed women’s wrinkles woes to fewer sweat and sebaceous glands, fewer blood vessels, and a different muscle structure.
According to CBS News medical correspondent Dr. Jennifer Ashton, women are more likely to get wrinkles around the mouth and nose.
While talking on the CBS News ’ ‘The Early Show’, Ashton said as women age the muscles pull in closer to the mouth, and cause wrinkles.
She recommended women to avoid direct exposure to sun and quit smoking. She also insists to avoid going under the knife and evade drastic weight loss.
The study appears in Aesthetic Surgery Journal .
But there’s new hop for wrinkles.
Forget splashing thousands on anti-wrinkle creams or botox injections, for a group of researchers have developed a pillow that can iron out the ugly looking lines.
Boffins have developed a copper oxide pillow case, with tests showing those who used it for four weeks had fewer lines and wrinkles than those using conventional bedding. Clinical trials, supervised by a dermatologist, were carried out on 57 volunteers for four weeks, with the volunteers either given an anti-wrinkle pillow, which feels no different from normal fabric or a similar conventional pillow.
By the end of the trial, those sleeping on the copper pillows were statistically more likely to have lesser wrinkles. Jeffrey Gabbay, the owner of the Cupron company which used its expertise in making copper medical dressings to develop the pillow case, said, “The surgeon doing our wound-healing trial remarked how an increase in collagen was helping to heal wounds.”
“We wondered if it might work on fixing wrinkles and lines on the face. So we had some copper woven pillows made up and noticed that over a few days of lying on a cooper pillow lines on the face started to soften,” Telegraph quoted him, as saying. “It has been the most fantastic discover. The fabric has an impact on all lines but is best at ironing out the finer lines,” he added.
The researchers believe moisture from the skin releases copper ions from the pillow cases, which stimulate the production of collagen below the surface of the skin.
