'Younger' older women. Why?Page 12 of 11    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11)
I forever looked like I was 12 until I was 19-20 and hated it. People told me I'd be grateful when I got older and they were right. I have good genes & I am mixed Black & Asian so I'm from two ethnic groups that are known to age very well...."Black Don't Crack", "Asian Don't Raisin" LOL. Both of my parents are in their 50s and look young but they've spent a lot of time in the sun (one lives in L.A. and the other in San Diego) & are functional alcoholics. My dad is also a smoker. Genetics has worked in their favor but they could look much younger. Anyway, genes are a big contributor but they aren't everything. People have asked me how I stay looking so young other than genetics and these are my tips:

- drink plenty of water
- stay out of the sun (or lather on that sunscreen if you are in the sun)
- plenty of sleep
- stay away from cigarettes, caffeine & makeup
- cut back on drugs & alcohol
- don't waste time or **** men you have no future with, which causes stress. Stress accelerates the aging process.

Btw, I follow all but one of those. LOL

'Younger' older women. Why?
Posted: 9/16/2018 5:54:27 PM

Last summer I met two women in a field study program who were in their early 50's but were super fit and I thought in their mid 30's maximum.

I think it's just your age-perception that's Off. It changes when we get older, so I think you're just getting older. I razz ya a bit, but I'm also being serious. I can be like "What? You're 22?" when I'm thinking they're 27-ish... or look at an older woman and think she's younger -- but nothing like early 50s -> early 30s. I've never seen that on TV nor IRL. More like "late 30s at the youngest, probably early 40s" are the Wow-factors when running into women in early 50s.

I'm blessed with great genes. ;-)

I'm blessed with great jeans. That I got on sale, too!

Correct plus there is a scientific explanation to part of what you say

" don't waste time or **** men you have no future with"

When a woman is promiscuous/has many partners, it accelerates their aging. It has to do w/ the immune system, sperm & the membrane linings of the vagina, mouth or anus. The more often any membrane is exposed to different DNA the weaker the protective barrier/immune system becomes.

I work part time at a prison, and I cannot believe how haggard some of the youngsters who were born in the late 1980's and early 1990's look. As another poster said, a lot of it comes from drugs, drinking, and poor nutrition. And it's a shame....so many pretty girls all messed up. A lady came in as an inmate who is my age. Used to play with her and her sister when I was in the 6th grade. If I hadn't recognized her name, I would not have recognized her. It was sad; her mom was gorgeous.

Is it boredom, or just another way to toot your own horn?


Toot my own horn, of course. I have lost a healthy amount of weight, changed my lifestyle, committed myself to psychological therapy, made new friendships, continued my education, changed my profession, and have returned to enjoying the other things I love like art and music.

I have taken great care of myself and it shows in my advancing age. While my appearance changes, my outlook will remain healthy and (mostly) positive.

Genetics has worked in their favor but they could look much younger. Anyway, genes are a big contributor but they aren't everything. People have asked me how I stay looking so young other than genetics and these are my tips:

- drink plenty of water


Check.


- stay out of the sun (or lather on that sunscreen if you are in the sun)


Check.


- plenty of sleep


It's critical to my mental health. So, check.


- stay away from cigarettes, caffeine & makeup


A moderate amount of caffeine has been a boon for me. I don't smoke. I wear make up and spend more time without it than I do. However, I think quality makeup with SPF in it and moisturizing properties in it can't hurt.


- cut back on drugs & alcohol


Don't do any of that. Check.


- don't waste time or **** men you have no future with, which causes stress. Stress accelerates the aging process.


Good point and I, too, don't do that. I also don't stress a lot of things I once did. Ageing has been a boon for me, too, as once would bother me doesn't, but that's part of growing up. We never stop developing as we age, either, so new interests, friendships, opportunities come along. I just happen to have a good appearance and will continue to have in my old age at that age, nothing younger than what I should be.

You're always going to find information to the contrary. Here's one source:

I have known way too many women that look fabulous and have given "sleeping around" a whole new meaning for that to be a fact!!

That's a complete crock of sh!t - lol. Your membranes in the mouth are constantly exposed to different DNA when eating. Your silly bought-into bad hypothesis-turned-fact has no bearing on it, and is just based on trying to keep people from sleeping around. Best not to do that with silly fables, then those who do won't take Anything seriously. Kind of like saying pot makes people crazy... or having a few beers makes you do crazy crazy things. When when one takes a hit off a blunt, or has a few beers -- they realize everyone else is a crock... and then don't listen to what the good cautionary advice is, as a result.

Perhaps it's not the promiscuous sex that accelerates aging.
Perhaps it the attitude.

Sex may be aging to a woman who is using sex as a means to try to garner a husband or long-term protector.
Sex is a tool.
A means rather than an end.

On the other hand, perhaps those promiscuous women who are not aging as fast actually enjoy it. They're satisfied with who and what they are (i.e. single and in charge of their own lives).
Sex is pleasure, fulfillment, affirmation of their attractiveness.
Sex is the ends rather than a means.

What they fail to mention is that those facts may all be true, if it's sex with a committed, TRUSTED partner. Sex with randoms (i.e. "sleeping around") is not healthy in any respects, physically or emotionally.

It's like that study that claimed all these health benefits for women associated with semen exposure. If a woman's partner is cumming inside of her on a regular basis, chances are it's her boyfriend or husband (i.e. a man who she trusts and can let her hair down sexually with) and that's why she's reaping the health benefits of semen, not because she lets men who she's not committed to cum inside of her. Ask any woman who's had unprotected sex with a man she was not with...it causes stress. It's not healthy, beneficial, hot or liberating in any way.

All these studies that claim sex and semen are so great for women omit a lot of caveats and conditions, which is why I don't take them seriously. Regular sex is great, yes! Regular sex with people you neither know nor trust....not so great.

Growing up in an African American household, we were taught to never put water on our skin without moisturizing it afterward. Cocoa butter, cold cream, baby oil, etc. I hated it as a child, but my grandmother said that when I was "old", I would thank her.

Now, I use coconut oil -- not the stuff bought at the cosmetic counter, but plain coconut oil that is used for cooking -- no chemicals no perfume scent. It's wonderful to shower and use the coconut oil. I wake up with nice, smooth, non-dry skin.

I have been using Queen Helene's Mint Julep Facial Mask since I was 15, and lavender toner on my face. And I use 50 SPF sunscreen, too. Those things seem to help.

I have a sister 9 years younger and no one knows who is the elder. She has not taken care of her appearance at all
and never wears make up. Why? I dont know. I have been taking care of my skin since I was 12 and dont expose my skin to the sun more than I can help. Diet and exercise also help maintain what may be a genetic advantage.

I think it's all about genetics and lifestyle. When it's genetics, that can be ruined by an unhealthy lifestyle. If we're not born with "good" genes, sometimes that can be overcome by a healthy lifestyle. I am seeing more and more young people who are overweight and other factors that make them look much older than they are. When it comes to make up, I have always gone with less is better. In today's society, I think far too much emphasis is put on make up. I see young women who are much more attractive without it, or at least with less. But they won't realize that until years from now looking back. Also I see more of them putting more emphasis on making up their face and nails than in keeping a healthy body weight.

The 20th Century changed people's health and wellness prospects rather dramatically.

That people took advantage of that, and maximized their outcome, isn't surprising.

Nutrition, basic medical care makes a lot of difference.

Also, a culture that recognizes (and even grows its economy some, on the very idea) that living an active lifestyle confers a health benefit (beauty is advertised health).

Ever notice how disproportionately attractive some RN's are, in online dating? It's not just employer bias (but again, beauty is advertised health; health is a causal factor for attractiveness).

Some of the nurses in their early 60's are OMG attractive (to me, anyway).

That's health, for you. ;)

This is true, although I see it more often with older women than with younger ones.
