WOMEN'S skin ages faster and at a far earlier age than men's, say researchers at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. Using instruments to measure skin suppleness and moisture, they found that women in the 20-40 age bracket had 40 per cent more wrinkles than men of the same age.

The difference becomes even more marked after the menopause, when hormonal changes mean that women suffer a sharp fall in skin moisture, says a report in General Practitioner.
