  • She's in her mid 30s, but if you take care of yourself and don't let your body go, you can look like you're in your 20s for quite a while
  • Light-skinned people don't crack if they avoid sun exposure... which is why black don't crack; dark skin is a sun shield. Notice a lot of Asian cultures with long-sleeve clothing and hats when they're in the sun; that's a big part of why many Asian people often stay younger looking.
  • Sun exposure is the ultimate accelerator for skin aging. I'm 36, and because I don't lay out and let a huge nuclear fusion reactor bathe me in radiation, I look younger than most 25 year olds. Then people argue about the vitamin D bullshit. That's their excuse for tanning. They need vitamin D to stay "healthy". It's ridiculous. 3 cups of whole milk will give you all the D you need. Then add all the other foods you eat that have vitamin D. You don't need the sun, at all.
  • You're right about everything, except not needing the sun. You certainly don't need to lay out, and should avoid sun exposure for the sake of your skin, but Seasonal Affective Disorder is a real thing for people who live in areas with long, dark winters. You do need a little sun, otherwise you literally get SAD.
  • I meant that you don't need the sun for vitamin D. But, I get what you're saying. Everyone is a little gloomier than usual during the winters here in Wisconsin. Then spirits are lifted when spring hits. Even when it's warm out, there's those certain days when the weather is perfect, and it puts you in a tremendous mood. In that aspect, the sun is very important.
  • Then you know what I'm talking about more than I do! Here in Texas, our seasonal disorder is getting irrationally angry in the heat of summer. My favorite is when my mom tells me not to cover myself with a blanket because I'm making her hot. Sitting across the room from one another.
  • I think you only need a couple of minutes in the sun in order to get Vitamin D. No need to bake yourself in it.
  • If you get a suntan, you're watching visible skin damage. There is no "safe" way to tan.
  • Well, I think being in the sun does allow you to absorb the vitamin D better/more easily (but I might be full of shit. Thought I read it somewhere or something though) . But, you only need a few minutes in the sun to get the benefit - nowhere near long enough to get a burn/tan unless you are REALLY facking pasty.
  • I didn't say you were absorbing vitamin D from the sun. I had thought that I remembered that sunlight allowed better absorption of vitamin D from dietary sources, rather than causing your body to produce it. Obviously I was wrong though.
  • Until they hit about 50, then they immediately look wrinkled, old, and wise
  • Maybe this stereotype is because of the rapid acceleration of the Asian middle class, and also because of the much higher standard of living experienced by second and third generation immigrants to western countries from poorer Asian countries. The grandparent generation were poor, so they werent able to live as healthily or avoid the sun, so Asian people of that older generation tend to age worse. The younger generations lived more privileged lives so they maintained their youth a lot longer. Its not that when Asian people turn 60 they suddenly look terrible, its that Asian people who are currently around 60 have lived rougher lives than Asian people who are currently around 40.
  • Ummmmm, I think there's some validity to this point. But how do you explain all those guys in the Vietnam WAr/SE Asian conflicts, guys that went on The Long March, etc. Asians, just morpholigically, do look younger. White people have bags of fat and stuff. I know guys in their 20s who look like hell, it's not their fault but the fat accumulated in places that makes them look like old Hound Dogs, and they're not fat. I'm sure you know white guys like that if you live in the US or other predominantly caucasian nation. Even fat Asians, and you're right there's an increasing number of pudgy little Asians running around, and I say that with only the greatest condescension, do not look like that. The fat deposits differently.
  • Not sure why you got down voted for a truthful comment.
  • I was under the impression it wasn't to stay younger that Asian cultures try so hard not to tan. It was for that "I don't do manual labour outside" nice and pale look. In Western countries this was also the case until jet travel made a nice tan say "hey, I can afford a vacation to someplace sunny" back when jet travel was really expensive.
  • Why they do it is irrelevant to my point; it is however a fun fact!
  • I was under the impression it wasn't to stay younger that Asian cultures try so hard not to tan. It was for that "I don't do manual labour outside" nice and pale look. Yeah, mostly. Though it's pleasing to see movements being made to popularise normal Asian skin tones. My current favourite is Tan Magazine in Thailand. https://www.instagram.com/p/-2k6nIr4fS/
