Well, as for make up, If my memory serves me correctly, make up suffocates and poisons you skin if you use it too much. Which causes you skin to wrinkle and maybe even turn a sort of a gray color. So you would look fine with make up, but without it, every one would see your true form.As for anglos looking older sooner, I can only guess. I suppose diet could be part of it, but there are so many different things that could affect aging. Like climate, or lifestyle all together. I find it kinda funny that some young people try to look a little older, and then alot of older people try to look younger.

My whole family's European...and i dont think they look old for their age, but i think that u guys think that white (European) ppls look old because of all the anorexic celebrities who've been wearing makeup all of their lives..

But other than that....i think this forum is pretty racist to us Europeans =[

On average we have thicker skin is the reason I heard. It's not allways the case but I think you should take the question serious.

caucasians tend to have less pigment in the skin to pretect against sun damage. and sun damage---> skin aging.
this is the reason why usually black people have much younger looking skin - they have a higher amount of pigment in the skin which pretects against damaging UV rays.

being white, and fashion being what it is, caucasians tend to try and tan a lot. THIS damages and ages the skin.
caucasians who grew up in the 60's and 70's grew up at a time when it was very popular to sunbathe, and sun screen was practically unheard of. people would sit in the sun and put olive or baby oil on their skin to bake themselvs more. doing this for a few years can effect your skin for the rest of your life. you'll notice a certain section of our population that looks older because of this. fake tans are becoming more popular now so expect the effects from this to decrease.

have you heard the phrase 'mad dogs and englishmen go out in the midday sun'? this is an english song which refers to the fact that when on holiday abroad in a sunny country english people will go out in the blazing midday sun, rather than avoid it the way locals would. english people like to make the most of any sun they can find!

this old story about make-up is actually a load of nonsense.
make-up in the past may have been damaging, but that wasnt restricted to europe and america. make-up world wide was pretty damaging. also we arent the only people that wear make up so think about it, how can that be the answer? isnt there also a thread about do asians use make up better? so which is it? we wear it more or less? do you know how much make up is acheived to create a 'natural' look also? (boys might not know how much make up a natural looking girl may be wearing!)

make up has changed. today products are more natural, contain fewer chemicals, fragrances etc and most make up contains UV filters which actually protect the skin from the damaging rays of the sun and do more good than harm. the only thing you need to do it wash your face well at night to make sure you dont get pimples.
you do NOT go grey if you wear a lot of make up.

facial size, bone structure and eyes have nothing to do with aging. all these things do is determine what your face looks like with skin on it.

diet could have a lot to do with it. people that dont eat enough fruit and veg wont have enough antioxidants in their bodies to be healthy let alone prevent premature aging.
not drinking enough water leads to dehydration, so if you typically have a poor diet you are also unlikely to drink enough water. dehydration will make the skin appear older faster.

Smoking increases this problem as it destroys antioxidants in the body. people who smoke tend to wrinkle more around the mouth and eyes.
it also destroys collagen, which is what keeps the skin plump and firm and stops wrinkles looking bad.


overall: make-up isnt aging us, neither is our bone structure.

Less melanin (pigment) in the skin, not protecting the skin with sun block, tanning, smoking, not drinking enough water and not eating well is the cause. but you will find that with the exception of melanin, all of those other factors will effect humans the same way, not just caucasians.

so, now youve got all your answers OP, maybe you can tell me: what is the point in this thread? to point out 'another' caucasian 'weakness'?
EDIT: Your disclaimer doesnt work. The thread about asians is flattering and about their youthful appearance.

pam was a big sun worshipper/tanner and thats what happens.
and posh doesnt eat, which is never a good look on any nationality. she doesnt look that much older than her years though, she just doesnt look 'well'. her breasts look painful by the way. like they might puncture the skin!

This is a stupid post because that is just your personal opinion about just a few people you have seen. I'm not going to say my age cause it's none of anyone's business but NO ONE can figure out my age they assume I am around 10 yrs younger then I am. So your theory is wrong.


u contradicted urself
we cant judge anglos by how young you look ,so the theory isnt wrong yet
