The New Place to Watch For Wrinkles: Your Elbows

So I was out with some guy mates over the weekend and the topic of girls' elbows came up—somewhere between what we were up to for the rest of the weekend and what we were drinking, obviously. Anyway, did you know that guys regulary perform The Elbow Test to check how old a chick is?

It's hardly a scientific (or accurate) method but, nonetheless it happens. So how does a guy figure out your 'elbow age'? Well he checks them out when they're straight by your side, not when they're bent as that works in your favour, to access skin texture, wrinkles and any signs of droopiness. I was concerned to learn that mine appear to be prematurely ageing so I'll be religiously treating the area with Yes to Carrots C a Softer You Hand and Elbow Moisturising Cream ($15.95).

Much more than simply a comical insight into the Mind of a Man, it reminds us of those areas that we often neglect: the neck, our knees, our hands and our elbows. So I guess all I'm trying to say is it's not all about the face, pretty lady, these areas can give away your real—or even fake, older age too.
