Do you think white women age quicker?

And I'm not throwing shade it's an honest question lol. Because I'm 34 and people in real life tell me I look younger and yes I'm a black woman. I remember going to get a facial done at this place and most of the women there were white and there to get Botox, fillers etc. It's very rare for black women to get work done on their faces, my mother is 56 and still looks 43 in the face.

  • Well... white people tend to look their age 👀
    People of color usually appear younger. Some races of people have it better than others.
    And I can definitely say from just my personal observation that black people age very nicely. I seen a black woman who I genuinely thought was in her late twenties, and she was actually 52.
    Maybe black peoples have more youthful genes?
    It could also be the melanin... the more melanin you have the more your skin will absorb the rays from the sun. But it takes those properties to enrich the skin instead of destroying it.
    That’s why white people have a higher risk of skin cancer.

  • Well duh. It’s scientifically proven that they age faster. 🤷🏽‍♀️ They don’t have any melanin in their skin to protect them from the suns harmful rays so it just shrivels them up like raisins. Not trying to throw shade either. It’s just true.

  • white people or really it should be said; people with less melanin in their skin who expose it to the sun a lot will experience sun damage quicker (so aging, wrinkling, etc)

  • No. They don't. The general consensus about how people age (if we are talking skin.) Is that all woman age gradually but retain a certain structure of youth even when they become elderly. Where as men don't appear to age until they hit 40, and when they do their age is very rapid and harsh.

  • Age as in looks yes a lot of white people look older than black people. Obviously it’s because of the extra melanin they have. Women like Jane Seymour who is white never ages. For some people it just depends on genetics and how they treat their body.

  • "Has nothing to do with race"
    Well in this case it would, black women get the perks of melanin to help block UV rays and prevent the breakdown of skin collogen. As opposed to white women who like to tan...

  • Light skinned people are more vulnerable to the sun. Wear sunscreen every day.

    Addicts (including tobacco) and obese people age the fastest.

  • Race has nothing to do with it. It depends on how well you treat your body. You treat you body well and your live longer. You treat it like crap and it will either away. You don't keep something alive by forgetting it.

  • I don’t know. My grandma is 80 and she has maybe a few wrinkles around the eyes. That’s it.
    She’s full blooded Greek though, and swears it’s olive oil that keeps wrinkles and cellulite away. My mum however is wrinkles galore. She smokes 2 packs of cigarettes a day and drinks.

  • It has to do with genetics, healthcare, diet, skin thickness... Many variables, not only skin color.

    The main difference related to skin color I can think of is melanin. Due to higher levels of melanin black skin is more protected against sun rays. A white skin have more probabilities to suffer damage when exposed to sun. White people who sunbathe too much usually get wrinkles sooner and look older than they are.

    But, if they take good care of themselves (avoiding to much exposition to sun, drinking enaugh water, having a good diet, etc.) they can age good without getting botox or those shits.

  • They definitely can, yes. Melanin does protect you from the sun, and few white people are assed to protect their skin.

  • I notice that in women who spend to much time in the sun some look like old leather. I spend a hour a day in the sun in the summer and I use suntan lotion. I do spa’s it mudbath facials , mani pedis but that just me.

  • I think it's more of a skincare than a race thing. The reason why most white people age quicker is because they go suntan for ages without proper protection, when their skin is actually the most vulnerable to UV damage as it contains the least melanin and thus needs most protection. I see it on my friends all the time. They go out into the bright sun with SPF15 at best, when white people should actually be wearing SPF30-50 and NOT JUST IN SUMMER. My mother is 60 and people think she's 45 and she's Ashkenazi Jewish/Caucasian but she's been taking proper care of her skin & eating a healthy diet all her life.
