People around world spend billions of dollars every year trying to look younger. Companies produce thousands of creams, pills and treatments for our skin to look younger. In addition, scientists have worked for decades on trying to slow down ageing process. This week, scientists made breakthrough. They have developed method to "time jump" cells in human skin. scientists are from Babraham Institute in Cambridge, UK. They say they can turn back ageing clock in cells by 30 years. They added that this could make skin look younger. Skin cells in their tests kept all of important functions. scientists say their work is still at early stage, but it could help people look younger in future.

technique developed by scientists could change medicine and health. The lead researcher, Dr Diljeet Gill, said: "So far, we've only tested this technique in skin cells. We're excited to see if we can translate it across other cell types." This means it could be used to treat skin problems, such as burns, acne and eczema. scientists hope their technique could also be used to help other parts of body. Their new method could additionally help to heal cuts more quickly, especially in older people. Researcher Dr Wolf Reik said: "If you cut yourself, it'll take quicker to heal wound." scientists said their work might one day help us look younger. It could actually reverse ageing process.
