Allure surveys men, women on anti-aging techniques
Daily Glow
For its April 2013 issue, Allure magazine completed a survey of 2,000 men and women to determine how they view aging. The result is part of a national anti-aging poll commissioned by the magazine to study all aspects of aging including its impacts on a person's career, life and relationships. Not surprisingly, the magazine found that women are more likely to get plastic surgery to change or alter their appearance than men. Although women are more likely to go to extremes to stay young, the poll did find that men also care about their appearances.
