The Truth About Looking Younger

The Beeb's prolific output of 'The Truth About....' themed programs shows no sign of abating!  The latest installment is called 'The Truth About Looking Younger':
  • Plastic surgeon Dr Rozina Ali leaves the operating theatre behind for the frontiers of skin science and asks if it is possible to make your skin look younger without surgery.

    She discovers the latest research about how the foods we eat can protect our skin from damage, and how a chemical found in a squid's eye is at the forefront of a new sun protection cream.

    She also finds out how sugar in our blood can make us look older, and explores an exciting new science called glycobiology which promises a breakthrough in making us look younger.
This one interests me because of its apparent emphasis on food quality and aging.

BBC2 Horizon: Mon 23 Jul 2012 @21:00hrs.  Should be available on iPlayer.

I will view this. I think there are many ways to look younger without surgery. It's just that a lot of people want an instant fix, so they turn to surgery. But we don't have to go under the knife to look younger. Thanks for sharing.

Pursuit of an 'instant fix' is the big problem. I am not sure cosmetic surgery ever gets to the root cause.
