It's all about melanin. More melanin you have, the slower the aging process of the skin. (This is coming off the top of my head, but it really does deal with the amount of melanin in the skin.)

Science has already explained this.
Asians and Blacks have a higher content of melanin. Melanin is the substance that give people their skin, hair and eye color. Melanin not only give us color but it also acts as a built in sunscreen to protect us from the harmful UV rays from the Sun. The Sun is by far the main reason why people tend to age prematurely (lookwise). Excessive sunlight to the skin can cause the skin to lose it's elasticity which makes it prone to sagging and wrinkles.
Since blacks and Asians have a higher content of melanin over white people, their skin is able to ward off this process much longer then that of white people.
Cultural habits also play a role as well. Asians are less likely to go out in the sun and tan their skin and blacks are more likely to moisturize their skin with vitamin E (which has sun reflective properties in it). These cultural habits coupled with their higher melanin content makes them have a more youthful appearances as they get older.
