What do u felt about the fact people are aging so slowly these days?
People seems age slower, with every passing generation. More people in their 40s today, still looks young. A lot of gen Y, now in their mid 30s or late 20s, still looks 17. It is also more difficult to tell people's age, as a result. (I use to date this girl, 27, studying her MBA, looks 16. I was 1 year older then her. When we first met, she thought I was 18. I was not into her when we first met because, I thought she is a kid, then I realized she is 27, that change everything? [She ain't a kid and is sooo hot!!!]) What do you fell about the fact people today are aging so slowly?
I don't think people are aging slowly. I think make-up accessories, skin-care products etc are so much available in the market that people make use of them to "look younger".
If you take longevity, yes. Due to improved healthcare, people do live much longer and mostly with no specific benefit associated with it!!
I believe it's a combination of genes and effort to look one's best. Several previous generations didn't put a lot of work into stemming off the appearance of aging as much as people do today.
Having said that age 27 has never looked old on anyone. Today there are lots of women in their 40s and 50s who look incredible. When I was growing up women in the age group mostly did not dye their hair, none of them had a regular exercise routine, or invested hardly any money into beauty treatments. Most looked forward to baking cookies and spending time with their grandchildren. There was no such thing as a "cougar".
I think it's great that people are taking better care of themselves. However if one is a bible believer then we're not even scratching the surface. Adam lived to be 930 years old! And Noah didn't start having children until after he was past the age of 500! LOL!
I agree with CV. I think a lot of the younger looks come out of a bottle, especially when you're looking at women. I know a lot of women my age who look at least ten years younger, but on taking a closer look you can see the makeup. Will they still look so young when they get home and take off the makeup?
Good point, lots of women look young due to e.g. bot-ox and makeup especially middle age. But some, don't age. I know because my mum is 57 and don't age either, she got gray now, which give away her age, but when she wear a hat, she look in her 30s

Why are Gen Y all aging so slowly?It is an obvious fact now, gen Y are mostly in their late 20s to early 30s now, yet, most gen Y, still look 19. It is very obvious now that gen Y is the generation that simply don't age. I go to high school reunion, everybody still look the same as they...
