The effects of aging on skin physiology have been reported previously. In this study we tried to elucidate the correlation of skin types with age and nutritional status. There is a correlation between the age groups with nutritional status, correlation between age groups with the sebum levels on the forehead, and also there is a correlation between nutritional status and sebum level on forehead.
