Ori-Derm research recently published an article in the journal Cosmetics on ageing – the signs of and main skin concerns for Indian ladies.
This is the first study of this kind for this population and these findings were achieved by measuring 28 skin facial features and asking 693 women to estimate the age from photographs of 202 Indian volunteers.
It was revealed that for women in their 30’s, lack of or reduced skin brightness was found to suggest an older look. In their 40’s, 4 types of wrinkles were linked to an older perceived appearance alongside reduced skin brightness. In their 50’s, additional wrinkles (Upper lip) were perceived but also skin roughness and hydration caused women to be perceived older. As for people in their 60’s, nasolabial fold and wrinkles around the corner of the mouth (related to sagging) led to people being perceived older than their real age.
