Scientists Make 'Second Skin' to Hide Wrinkles

There are countless lotions and potions that promise youthful skin.

Now there's something that may make the wrinkles under your eyes disappear instantly. It isn't magic, it's chemical engineering.

Researchers at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Harvard University published a report in the journal of Nature Materials on Monday about a product that can take some of the signs of aging away — at least temporarily.

The "second skin" is made from common chemicals that have been deemed safe by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. This topical solution forms an invisible elastic film that is easy to apply straight on the skin.

The film takes only a minute to dry. Users don't have to worry about sweating or washing the film off after application. A special solution was created to help the film easily dissolve off the skin.
