How old is your skin? Take the pinch test and find out.

November 3, 2014

How old is your skinThe fact is, it’s all about the skin. Wrinkles and sagging can add years to your age. A lifetime of sun, eating away at the skin’s precious collagen, is responsible for about 80 percent of that. The rest comes from drinking, smoking, and other generally unhealthy lifestyle habits. If that hasn’t caught up with you already, it will.


Two words of advice: sunblock and antioxidants. Walnuts, red grapes, red peppers — all help to keep your skin supple and elastic.


Take this skin elasticity test to see if your complexion is older, younger or right on target for your biological age:


1. Pinch the skin on the back of your hand and hold for five seconds.


2. Release, and count how long it takes for the skin to flatten out.


How to score:


Time (seconds)


1-2 (under 30)


3-4 (30-44)


5-9 (45-50)


10-15 (60)


35-55 (70)
