The next time your young ones weep over their latest skin breakout, tell them to take a chill pill. According to a study by dermatologist Simone Ribeiro at King’s College, London, the skin of people who suffer from acne ages more slowly, with wrinkles appearing later in life. The study reveals that these people are likely to have longer telomeres in their white blood cells—telomeres are the caps at the end of chromosomes that protect them from deteriorating. “Our findings suggest that the cause could be linked to the length of telomeres, which appears to be different in acne sufferers and means their cells may be protected against ageing,” Ribero tells media.
