Abstract: Can we really look younger longer? New research is trying to answer that question.

Do you look your age? If so or if not, why?

New research from Unilever and Erasmus MC University Medical Center Rotterdam is digging into that key question: how do we explain the difference between how old we look and how old we are?

The results, according to the researchers, could "lead to new discoveries to help everybody look younger for longer." What they found was that individuals with one form of a gene called MC1R looked two years older than those with a different form.
