Look Seven Years Younger
Here's a beauty regimen I love: Have sex at least three times a week. In a study at Scotland's Royal Edinburgh Hospital, people in their 40s who reported having an average of 50 percent more sex than the typical person were judged by a panel of strangers to be about seven to 13 years younger than their actual age. Researchers believe the youthful glow comes in part from the release of the DHEA hormone during sex. DHEA, which is produced by your adrenal glands, has antiaging properties that can increase the production of collagen and may reduce wrinkles.
