 Women With Low Blood Pressure Look Two Years Younger, Says Study

Women who look young for their age tend to have lower blood pressure, reducing their risk of cardiovascular problems, reveals study.

According to the findings of a small study at Leiden University, which includes industry scientists from the multinational company Unilever, 650 participants were broken into groups according to their risk of heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular conditions, the Independent reported.

Dr David Gunn, senior scientist at Unilever said that they found that the feature in the face that blood pressure was linked to was not skin wrinkles but likely what we term as the 'sag' in the face.

He said that the exciting thing is further investigations will enable exact pin-pointing of the feature in the face that signposts an individual's blood pressure.
