"No ways. You look like a 19 year old" social media users cannot believe she's this old

Most women don't want to age faster. The desire of many to look young for their age has led to the establishment of a large cosmetics industry. However, the features of appearance that primarily determine how old women look for their age and whether genetic or environmental factors predominately influence such features are largely unknown.

African people have different methods to estimate perceived age but their methods sometimes are not even close to being accurate. There are people who look younger than their age and by merely looking at their physical appearance you will think they are young whereas they are actually older.

A South African lady with a Twitter handle @presh_rabbit is one of them. She is celebrating her 29th birthday today. She shared her pictures and social media users think she's 10 years younger, but others took it as an opportunity to send birthday messages.

"May God's richest blessings be with you always. Have a wonderful birthday" - Kwete.

"Happy birthday baby. Wish you more blessings and prosperity" - Sgonondo.

"Happy birthday Presh. May you live to see many more successful years to come" - Tebza.

Genes have a lot to do with looking young. According to science, there are thousands of genes in everyone's DNA that focus on cell energy, skin formation, and antioxidant production, but "ageless" people express them differently, and often for longer while others peter out as they age. And that expression differs by race.

It’s no secret that aging is inevitable. But, if you have to age, why not do everything you can to put it off as long as possible? It turns out it’s more than your genes and the sun that may be aging you. While it’s true that the sun isn’t the only factor in the overall appearance of your skin, it does play a huge role. In fact, damage from the sun’s UV light (UVA and UVB rays) is responsible for about 90% of your skin’s visible signs of aging.
