Sun-damage was significantly and strongly correlated to the perceived age data generated from facial images in both the Danish twin and British populations Table 1 supporting evidence that sun-exposure is associated with looking older for one's age . Heritability in the genomics era - concepts and misconceptions. By comparing the correlation in the appearance of a feature in monozygotic twin pairs to dizygotic twin pairs see SI Fig. Partner selection according to age, aocial origin, and place of birth in nineteenth-century rural Sweden. Thus, further work to identify all the main features driving how old one looks for one's age will help determine what physiological features are primarily responsible for driving the link between perceived age and health  and mortality . These 7 binary variables were used in a model where only significant confounding variables of the previous model were added the age of the raters and of the women subjects, smile, asymmetry and femininity. Gene variants that influence skin pigmentation in Caucasians are known  —  but it is not clear to what extent these variants also influence the prevalence of sun-damage.
Thus, twins who looked young for their age generally did so in both types of image.
Why Some Women Look Young for Their Age
Further work is required to determine whether study power, methodologies or the subjects examined underlie the difference between the findings. Each individual was asked to express a neutral face and to remove any glasses or earrings. We studied the facial appearance of pairs of female Danish twins aged 59 to 81 as well as British females aged 45 to S2 and  and, via the mirror placed above the subject's head, hair thinning on the crown using the Sinclair scale SI Fig. For each rater, the following information was collected: Conversely, preferences for self-resembling mates were found for several facial traits hair and eye color, chin dimple, and thickness of lips and eyebrows.
