Research Claims Exercise Can Reverse Aging

If you want your skin to look 20 to 30 years younger, maybe the secret doesn't lie with buying expensive beauty products.

Research done at McMaster University is showing exercise may even reverse the effects of aging on the skin. 

The discovery was made when the effects of exercise on mice that were genetically modified to age faster were studied. These mice, who ran on a wheel three times a week were compared to mice who did no exercise. The findings show the skin of the aging mice were completely protected with exercise.

When people 65 and older exercised for 30 minutes, three times a week on a stationary bike, their skin appeared 20 to 30 years younger under the microscope after three months as long as they didn't bake themselves in the sun.
