Everybody ages differently. While some people look significantly younger than their actual age, others look much older. There are many factors that can contribute to how a person ages or how their age is perceived by others based on their appearance. Genetics can play a large role in whether someone ages well. If their parents look young, then it is likely that they will look deceptively younger than their actual age. Lifestyle is another factor that can impact on if you age gracefully. Smoking, drinking, a poor diet, and sun worshipping can all have a detrimental impact on how young you look. Other factors include the way someone dresses if they wear makeup and their hairstyle. Turning gray prematurely or, in the case of men, developing a bald patch can are things that can make people perceive you as older than you are.
For celebrities, how well they age often comes under the scrutiny of both the public and the media. As they live their lives in the limelight, photographs are often displayed online or in publications that show either how young they look for their age or if they look older than you would expect. To avoid receiving negative comments about their age, many celebrities live healthy lifestyles or receive treatments to help them appear younger.
Sometimes, how well a person is aging is not too noticeable until you make a direct comparison of their appearance alongside someone else of the same age. This is why the following gallery of celebrity photographs may surprise you. When you compare photographs of two celebrities side by side, it is clear who is aging the better of the two. This gallery of photographs shows 15 pairs of celebrities who are exactly the same age, but it is clear that the aging process has been kinder to some than others.
