An Asian Woman Says She's Older than She Is...and She Still Looks Younger than Her Actual Age

What would you have guessed at first glance?

As a member of the Black community, it really isn’t that big of a deal to see a Black woman who is one age and yet looks 15 years younger (at least). It’s one of the joys of living a melanated life that I am truly grateful for. Still, there are those rare occasions when I’ll see someone — of any ethnicity — who will catch me off guard when it comes to how well they’re aging…just a little bit.

Like @jiaoyingsummers. Although she’s basically joking around, what I found to be the most hilarious part is, even the truth about her age is kinda hard to believe — that’s just how much aging is avoiding her. Take a look.

So, she tells people that she’s 20 years older than she actually is so that they will compliment her on how well she’s aging (hilarious) while the reality is that she still looks like she’s in her mid-20s (at least in this video) when she actually is 30. LOL.

And to me, this video is a good of a time as any to briefly go over some tips that can help you to look at least a few years younger than you do as well — because while aging well does have to do with factors like genetics and how much melanin someone has, there are other things that can turn back the hands of time too. Here are 10 of ‘em:

· Always use sunscreen

· Consume lots of water

· Eat less junk food

· Eat more fresh produce

· Exercise

· Don’t smoke and drink in moderation

· Get no less than 6-8 hours of sleep nightly

· Take a nutritional supplement

· Moisturize your face and neck (definitely take care of your neck)

· De-stress

While all of this might not have you looking like you’re in your 20s, it can help to create glowing skin, healthy hair and the kind of metabolism that will have folks thinking that you’re younger than you actually are.

Or, you can just do what she does and…lie. Let me know how that works out for you.
