Allure Magazine has just published a story about an independent study out of the School of Pharmacy at Curtin University in Perth, Australia which suggests that one of the most potent ways to persuade young smokers (ages 18 to 30) to quit is by appealing to their vanity and showing them pictures of how smoking will age their skin.  The study, reported respected medical journal Pediatric News, used our face aging software called APRIL (available via download for professionals or online at AgeMe.com) that predicts what you'll look like at any age up to 72 if you keep on smoking, or if you give up the habit.

According to the Curtin study, fifty-one percent of participants who got a glimpse at their digitally created future (versus only 14 percent in the control group that did not) reported a lower dependency on cigarettes six months later.
