Question 1 of 20 Correct

What happens to the skin as it ages?

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

The correct answer is: All of the above. Your body's production of collagen, a fiber-like protein that gives skin strength and flexibility, slows down, along with the production of other vital proteins in the skin. Your body also replaces skin cells at a slower rate as you age, causing skin to develop wrinkles, age spots and freckles.

Question 3 of 20 Correct

What is the minimum SPF your sunscreen should have?

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

The correct answer is: The American Academy of Dermatology recommends wearing a sunscreen of SPF of 30 or higher. Look for one that protects from both UVA and UVB rays, and put it on every single day to prevent aging and reduce risk of developing melanoma by half.

Question 4 of 20 Correct

What do avocados, nuts and soybeans have in common?

Question 6 of 20 Correct

True or false: As long as you don't burn, a suntan doesn't lead to skin aging.

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

The correct answer is: This is false. Whether you usually tan or burn, any change in skin color shows that your skin has been damaged by the ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun. UVA rays penetrate deep into the dermis, causing not only a suntan but premature aging (since those rays dissolve collagen and elastin) and skin cancers.

Question 7 of 20 Correct

What causes lip lines?

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

The correct answer is: All of the above. You can get lip lines from doing many of the activities you do on a daily basis. In many cases, lip lines are a natural part of aging, appearing as the skin begins to thin and sag over time. However, smoking is another major cause.

Question 8 of 20 Correct

True or false: Laser treatments can help with lip lines.

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

The correct answer is: This is true. Laser resurfacing treatments can help smooth lip lines and can be used in combination with fillers. Skin fillers, such as collagen or hyaluronic acid, are a common treatment that can make lips look fuller and reduce the appearance of lines.

Question 9 of 20 Correct

True or false: You can get crow's feet from squinting.

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

The correct answer is: This is true. As we grow older, we produce less collagen and elastin, which causes our skin to lose elasticity. That means when the skin on your face stretches and contracts, it doesn't return to its original form as easily, resulting in wrinkles.

Question 10 of 20 Correct

True or false: Eye cream can permanently erase crow's feet.

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

The correct answer is: This is false. Over-the-counter skin plumpers can temporarily plump out crow's feet from the inside. It's highly unlikely that an over-the-counter cream will permanently erase wrinkles, but a good cream or moisturizer can help mask them if you use it regularly.

Question 11 of 20 Correct

How long does Botox last as a fix for crow's feet?

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

The correct answer is: Botox can cause facial muscles to relax, softening wrinkles and reducing the appearance of crow's feet. A treatment can last from three to six months.

Question 12 of 20 Correct

True or false: Loose skin on the elbows is normal.

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

The correct answer is: This is true. It is normal for elbow skin to be loose so that movement at the elbow joint can take place. This area on the skin is prone to moisture loss, which can be treated with lotion, or, if symptoms persist, a doctor can prescribe medication.

Question 13 of 20 Correct

What causes sagging skin?

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

The correct answer is: All of the above. With age, your body loses collagen and elastin, which are responsible for making your skin firm and youthful. Muscles also deteriorate with age, leaving skin less taut, especially in the face. Finally, gravity weighs everything down, so naturally it plays a role in loosening your skin.

Age Erasers
Question 14 of 20 Correct

True or false: Regular exercise cannot prevent sagging skin.

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

The correct answer is: This is false. Movement is key to keeping muscles in shape and preventing skin from sagging. Regular exercises like tricep dips, push ups and pelvic tilts can help firm up sagging body parts.

Question 15 of 20 Correct

True or false: Sleep helps keep skin moisturized.

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

The correct answer is: This is true. The skin’s capacity to hold water is enhanced by sleep, keeping skin moisturized and supple. In addition, sleep induces the production of collagen and growth hormones that play a big role in cellular repair during deep sleep.

Question 16 of 20 Correct

Why are your hands all of a sudden showing veins?

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

The correct answer is: As your body ages, your hands naturally lose soft tissue under the skin which affects skin plumpness, and begins to expose the bones and veins underneath.

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

The correct answer is: Look for soaps that are not very harsh and that have glycerin and sunflower oil in them.

What does Dr. Oz recommend as a good moisturizer for aging hands?

Question 19 of 20 Correct

Should you consider a neck lift at the same time as a facelift?

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

The correct answer is: A neck lift effectively removes fat and tightens the area under the chin region. For people already considering a facelift, it's a good idea to also consider a neck lift to allow for an even and smooth transition between both zones.

Age Erasers
Question 20 of 20 Correct

How long does a neck lift last?

Correct! Sorry, that’s incorrect.

The correct answer is: In general, a neck lift should last about 10 years. However, how long a neck lift lifts lasts really depends on the individual’s skin condition, whether they are a smoker and how well they care for their skin after the surgery.
