We are a youth-obsessed culture. Period. Our minds are constantly infiltrated with images of perfect-skinned, size zero, inhumanly gorgeous, forever young-looking women -- so it's kinda unavoidable not to be affected. And the stars we hold in the highest regard seem to be getting younger and younger, don't they? Between keeping up with the Kardashians and the Joneses, we ladies are busy trying every type of anti-aging skin care gimmick known to man so we can be the prettiest and youngest version of ourselves. That's why, to satisfy our resistance to our own mortality, there are a bazillion anti-aging skin care treatments and products on the market. While some are the stuff of old wives tales, science fiction and urban myths, others are sure-fire ways to combat aging skin problems, like wrinkles, sagging skin and sunspots.

To bust the myths and separate the anti-aging skin care facts from fiction, we picked the brains of skin scholars like renowned dermatologists, founders of top skin care brands like Murad and Proactiv, anti-aging skin care book authors and cosmetic surgeons. Whether you are 25 or 75 (or somewhere in between), there are both preventative and restorative nuggets of anti-aging skin care wisdom for you, as well as beauty tips and product suggestions. Take this true/false quiz to test your anti-aging skin care knowledge and let the experts set the record straight.
