Vertical Frown Lines on the forehead, which Dr. Andrew compared to looking like goal posts, could indicate Osteoporosis in women, according to a recent study. Dr. Lisa Masterson added that decreasing Estrogen as women age can lead to wrinkles and Osteoporosis. Dr. Lisa said some Facial Creams used to contain Estrogen to compensate for this.

Sardines Good Source of Calcium & Vitamin D

Calcium and Vitamin D are good for bone health, especially in women. Dr. Lisa said it’s better to get your Calcium through your diet, but supplements can make up the difference.

She recommended eating sardines, though it’s important to pay attention to sodium content in canned sardines. Dairy products and other calcium rich foods can also be great additions to your diet.
