The business for ‘anti-aging’ skin care products runs into billions of dollars. Consumers are learning more about the aging process in order to prevent premature aging signs on face and skin. Cosmetic businesses are investing a great deal in the search of ideal products and the scientists are looking at it with new concepts.
Recently, scientists in Shanghai, created a 3D imaging system they claim can reliably predict a person’s biological age from the look of their face alone. They developed the technology after scanning the faces of more than 300 people aged 17-77 and building up a map that reveals how the human face shows signs of aging. Similar studies in New Zealand have shown different biological age of 38-yr olds from their chronological age.
In contrast to chronological age - simply the number of birthdays a person has had - biological age reflects how well (or not) a person’s body is getting older, reflected in the visible facial features like wider mouth, larger nose, drooping of eyes corners, plump face and whole lot sages as gravity triumphs over the collagen and elastin fabric of the skin.
The scientist found that most people’s chronological ages lay within six years of their “facial age” as predicted by the computer. So people who had facial ages of 30, were typically aged 24 to 36 years old.
Among the 332 people who took part in the study were a small number who, according to their facial ages, were growing old either much faster or much slower than average. Some of the people’s faces appeared more than ten years older or younger than their real, chronological ages.
Scientists now feel that detailed cell research could be used to test whether products touted for their anti-ageing effects make any difference. It could also help consumers to learn the right kind of facial care products that have healthy effect.
The new studies do not take into account the centuries old traditions of maintaining bright and young skin with the help of organic herbs and oils. It is already established fact that for thousands of years, people have relied on the bounty of plant preparations to feed, nourish, and cleanse their bodies. The traditional formulations that are made in harmony with nature have a longer lasting effect. The new statistical studies do not tell how the flower essences are a type of energy or vibrational medicine that can have a subtle, yet beneficial effect on skin.
