  • Do you mean mixed people are some ethnic groups.
    People of darker skin age better because they're skin is made to withstand areas of high heat and sun. Black people have black skin because we come from a sunny climate and it's more resistant against burning than white skin.
    Now that we no longer spend that much time out in the sun our skin again is less level. Because we're less likely to get skin damage from the sun our skin doesn't wrinkle as much (75% of wrinkle, discoloration and age spots are caused by the sun)

  • some people are blessed with genetics, others take really good care of their health, then there are people who combine both.

    if you're wondering why you see some other ethnic backgrounds who seem to age very well compared to others, its probably because of their lifestyle.

  • Well, some ethnicities know how to better take care of their skin. As bill burr said, white people missed out on the lotion seminar

  • You could have just said "Why do Asians age gracefully?". ;)

    They don't necessarily age more gracefully, we just aren't that used to being around many Asians, so Asians will probably say the same about Westerners. It's all about what you are used to.

  • The darker your skin is the slower you look old because of the chemicals found in darker skin. It varies but your eating habits also effect this, how much you are in the sun, smoking and drinking and climate you are in are all factors. Also genetics.

  • It is the food and the life style they lead. Lots of friends and family can enhance their well being. They also would have fresh foods rather than processed foods, live on clean air and water.
