Check Your Age with Skin Elasticity

There are so many anti-aging remedies and creams out there that most people who take care of their skin look much younger than they actually are. Our skin is the biggest teller of our actual age. Besides age, exposure to sun causes 80 percent of collagen breakdown and other factors include drinking, smoking, and any unhealthy lifestyle habit. Check your age by doing the pinch test on your skin. Pinch the skin on the back of your hand and hold it for five seconds, then release and count how long it takes for your skin to flatten out.

Check out your score with the pinch test! Score: 1-2 seconds (under 30 years old), 3-4 (30-44), 5-9 (45-50), 10-15 (60), and 35-55 (70).[1]
