If it is properly nourished and steered away from the stress it could have excellent elasticity for her age, and if you are too exposed to the sun, drinking, smoking and many are stressing out a lot- it may be older then it’s supposed to be.
Before, it was a general thought that when it comes to women, after 45 years of age their skin begins to decline significantly losing the face tone, but due to hectic lifestyle and stress in the workplace, today women get wrinkles in their younger days and their facial skin begins to loosen up and drop down.
Dr. Alexis Abramson, expert in skin care claims that every woman can check the condition of her skin in a completely fast, free and painless way, with the help of a small trick that is easy to perform, according to the magazine Mirror.
How to perform this test?
Hold out your palm down and pinch and pull the skin of the palm with the fingers of your other hand. Wait for 5 seconds and then release and measure how many seconds does it take for the skin to go back into place.
1-2 seconds: your skin is younger than 30 years
3-4 seconds: your skin is aged between 30 and 44 years
5-9 seconds: your skin is aged between 45 and 50 years
10 to 15 seconds: your skin is 60 years old
