Don’t just blame the parents: Half of ageing may be inherited but the other half is in your hands, from avoiding the sun and smoking to moisturising daily.
People say “If you want to know what your wife will look like in 25 years, look at her mother” and that’s pretty much true when it comes to how the structure of the face will change with time. It’s possible up to 50% of ageing may be inherited from your mother or father. However the most important factors are the things you don’t inherit, such as sun exposure, smoking and your stress levels.
For the 50% of ageing that’s out of your hands though, the good news is that the problems your mother had to live with can be prevented or reversed.Mail Online, 24th January 2011
