An NPD Group market research survey reports an increase in tween (8-12) girls' regular use of mascara, eye liner, and lipstick compared to 2007, while overall use of beauty products by teens (13-17) and young women (18-24) is declining.

Ranging in ages from 61 to 74, the senior citizens of this show are trying out some new leases on life, from dating to sky diving.
