Don’t we already worry too much about our wrinkles? Well, now we’re hearing that more wrinkles could mean weak bones. Apparently, there is a shared relationship between skin and bone health, and new study information, presented at the Endocrine’s Society’s annual meeting, found that having more wrinkles was associated with lower bone mineral density.

It turns out, collagen, which is typically related back to skin health, is also important for bones.
