ariesscientist :  I’m 31 and still look pretty much the same as I did when I was 20, although not as skinny.

Do you take care of your skin, drink enough water, eat healthy, take vitamins? Do you have a skincare routine?

I’m 44. I first noticed signs of aging 2 years ago. At least signs that bothered me. Under eye bags & fine wrinkles. I still look young for my age, but I am still bummed about it

I noticed it was harder to stay in shape while eating whatever I wanted and a few wrinkles around 27.

ariesscientist :  I’m 29 and Indian. I haven’t noticed any signs of skin-related aging. Just a couple of strands of white hair.

I do tend to get stressed easily at times but I eat a mostly healthy diet of veggies, chicken, nuts, fruits, dark chocolate, skinny pop. I take multivitamins daily . Rarely eat deep fried food or sugar. I have never been a coffee drinker or smoker and I drink alcohol (2 servings) maybe 4 times a year.

Also, I rarely wear makeup and I have kinda oily skin so I never use moisturizer. I’m olive skinned and have never been sunburnt on my face so I don’t use sunscreen either. I don’t think I’m in the sun long enough to really need it anyway. I’ve always had big boobs so mine have never really been perky since I was a teenager maybe so I don’t notice a difference there.

ETA – I’m slightly overweight and I read that as you get older, wrinkles are more noticeable in thinner people. https://health.howstuffworks.com/skin-care/beauty/anti-aging/more-wrinkles.htm

White hair starting around 22! But in my 30s so far no problems with my skin, largely a result of religiously using a moisturiser with sunscreen since I was a teenager.

ariesscientist :  Are you sure it’s related to aging and not other factors? Irregular sleep cycles, stress, bad diet?

Do you use any anti aging creams? My mom used Olay regenerist (night cream) and she really likes it.

For boobs, I think doing strength training targeting the chest helps it look a little more perky. Would you be able to incorporate more strength training in your workouts?

I’m 40 and last got carded just a few weeks ago at a restaurant. I don’t have any lines on my face and have only had 2 gray hairs thus far. Obviously, genetics plays a factor. Both of my parents look far younger than they are. Being Indian, I’ve avoided the sun like the plague since I was in junior high and I started wearing SPF moisturizer daily in my late teens/early 20s. I strength train regularly and my weight (other than when I was pregnant) stays within a small range. I drink lots of water. I never really smoked (I was an occasional social smoker).  I try to get lots of sleep.

I’m 34 and facially I haven’t changed since my mid 20s. I still get asked for ID. I started wearing sunscreen from quite a young age. My boobs are holding up ok but I’m a Dirty Delete cup and inevitably they don’t look exactly the same as they did when I was 21. I wouldn’t have breast augmentation though.

 

My sun-worshipping friends definitely look a little older. 

It depends how much it bothers you. My sister has had Botox, fillers, other skin treatments and uses very expensive serums etc. To me she still looks her age but well-rested. I’ve not been convinced to try anything yet.

I look exactly the same year after after. Infact, I find myself getting prettier except for my gray hair. I have to dye it. Some rude people who notice them ask me why I have some gray hair. I never knew my real age and my family doctors and other health workers had my date of birth in file. They never told me my age. So, I stayed 25 for a very long time until I had a health problem a few weeks ago and the new doctors kept bringing my age to my attention. I got a huge shock when I found my real age. That’s when I felt I was getting old. Also, a few days ago my gynacologist reminded me that my biological clock is ticking.

ariesscientist :  I am 63, and I have been coloring my hair since the age of 19. I noticed a few lines around my mouth at about 29, and looking tired at about the same time. Faithful moisturizing can take care of those things. Minimal makeup too. 

I am lucky, people seem surprised when I say how old I am. I probably look slightly younger than 63. My neck has held up well, and that neck and chest cream really works.

Gaining weight with age is normal. Some will say it doesn’t have to happen; but I choose not to obsess over diet and exercise at this time. It’s a choice. I just want to be reasonable. I also want to spend money on things that I will enjoy, which means that I don’t do Botox or plastic surgery. Again, it is a choice, no diss on those who want to do it.

ariesscientist :. That must suck to have so many issues in parallel. Maybe you could try doing a new thing every week / every month and see if that helps? 

I take one a day multivitamins and a friend who I recommended it to was very happy with it. I also take probioitic capsules almost everyday.
