Longevity Playbook helps individuals understand how their lifestyle choices affect signs of aging.

The self-assessment tool evaluates 7 signs of skin aging, including fine lines and wrinkles, rough texture, uneven tone, dullness, enlarged pores, blotches, age spots, and dryness. The app provides users with acomprehensive interpretation of their physiological health compared with actual age.

The questions on the app were created by doctors and delve into lifestyle factors that directly impact skin health and the signs of aging. The addition of a skin health evaluation will offer users a deeper look at how lifestyle choices affect appearance, skin health, and well-being. The Actual Age Test takes individual’s behaviors into account and can offer insights into the connection between external appearance and internal health markers.

"We know that skin health is an important indicator of overall well-being, including potential risks such as melanoma, but it also tells the world how old we may look, whether that's a true reflection of our biological age," said Michael Roizen, MD, founder of Longevity Playbook and chief wellness officer emeritus at the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio, in a news release. "It was important to expand the Actual Age Test to include a skin health evaluation to accurately represent one's physiological age. We hope this new test and personalized algorithms further empower individuals to understand better how their health choices reverberate throughout their bodies and how to positively enhance their life and healthspan."

Longevity Playbook plans to add to the Actual Age Test by 2024, with additional evaluations on brain health, hip and knee health, stress, and sleep hygiene. The company uses “rigorous scientific data to build the program for each user's personalized journey to reclaim their prime years.” The creators behind Longevity Playbook reviewed thousands of health and lifestyle studies to develop an assessment that can help people live healthier lives through better lifestyle choices.
