A women's facial wrinkles could predict her bone density during early menopause.

Yale researchers examined 114 women -- giving them a score for face and neck wrinkles, based on the number and depth of the wrinkles.

Those who had the worst wrinkles had the lowest bone density, no matter the age of the woman or any other factors.

Experts say skin and bones do share a common group of proteins known as collagens -- which may explain this association -- but more studies are needed.
