    Why are there more and more people that look younger then their age today?

    People today, seem to be aging slower, not only it term of health, but also in appearance and it is not due to any Botox or skin care product, a lot seem to be simply aging slower.  I know and seen so many people that are in their 30s, sometime even 40s, but still look 18. I've even read a news report of how a 44 years old cop is able to go undercover as a 17 years old girl, to uncover sex trafficking gang.  Once I saw a woman look 20 something married to a 50 years old man and his son is in his 20s and it turn out that young looking woman is really in her 50s too.

    Several things I guess.
    1 - Good genetics
    2 - Good skin care
    3 - Good diets, less smoking
    4 - Plastic surgery is getting better all the time - not so fake looking anymore.

    My thoughts anyway - I tend to get ID'd for alcohol (our  until very recently (after I had our daughter!) and I'm almost 33 (Our legal drinking age is 18, but you get ID'd if you look under 25)! But my mother doesn't look nearly 60 either due to good skin care, genetics, and diet.

      Ha ha, join the gang I am 29 and I get ask for ID going to bars too. My cousin and his wife are both same age as me and they look 17, when they first met they didn't like each other, because they both were late 20s, but thought the other is teen.

    I believe more people are health conscious and the "baby boomers" in particular were the first generation to not silently accept or welcome the aging process. In fact AARP membership is down.
    When I was growing up there were no mega gyms, major pushes on organic foods, low carb, low fat diets, workout DVDs, juicers, and tons of joggers and walkers. Anyone age 50 or older looked like they were ready to retire! Many of them had started wearing false teeth and were always tired. There was no "bucket list" for them to pursue.
    Today you walk into any gym and you'll see some older person jogging on the treadmill at a good pace, riding a stationary bike, and doing whatever it takes to keep their body toned.
    If you throw in a little  plastic surgery they maintain their "hotness" beyond age 60. Ultimately I think the biggest difference today is people in their 40s, 50s, 60s, and beyond don't feel obligated to stop living the same lifestyle they did when they were younger!
    Even "baby boomer" entertainers are still doing their thing. All of "The Rolling Stones" are in their 70s and they just announced a nation tour, Paul McCarthy is still playing stadiums, Prince and Madonna still pack theatres, and before Michael Jackson died at age 50 he sold out 50 shows in London. No one is to "slow down" these days.

      That is so true.  Most people in their 50s and 60s today, are still very healthy and some still "tough"  It remind me of this youtube clip it is funny because it is so true and as a single man I can relate https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91lYBbBkftA
