Why Modern 30-Year-Old Women Look So Young

2445 ratings | 143537 views
Your 30s are a wonderful time when you’ve finally gained confidence and know what you want. However, the appearances of 30-year-old women now and just 30–40 years ago couldn't be more different! In the past, a 30-year-old woman used to be considered an adult lady and she looked it! It was easy to tell a 20-year-old woman from a woman who was 10 years older. But today, a young girl can really shock us with her passport that says “30 years old” because today, 30-year-old girls look exactly the same as 20-year-olds. Scientists have proven that “middle age” begins at 35, so if you’re just 30 years old, you are officially a young person. We at Bright Side decided to find out more about the mysteries of age and want to understand why modern women look so different from the women of the past.

Music by Epidemic Sound https://www.epidemicsound.com/ SUMMARY: - Even though 30 continues to be a significant age mark, ladies have learned to have fun with it! In modern society, age is just a number. - Today's 30-something women are rocking torn jeans, they dye their hair bright colors, they have piercings, and they look amazing doing it all! Such fashion choices only complement their natural beauty, making them look fresh and young. - It may sound strange to young women under 30, but a number of years ago, the beauty industry and its idea of the perfect makeup look were completely different. All the fancy makeup tools and products were saved for special occasions. - These days women have the opportunity to create their own stable income, which allows them to enjoy the latest skincare products, hottest vacation destinations, shopping sprees, and other things that make them happy. - Another thing that came with the beauty industry's revolution was cosmetic procedures. They weren't that widely used a few decades ago! Nowadays, you can do some of them at almost any age. - For previous generations of women, finding great and unique clothes that would also fit perfectly could be a real challenge. Needless to say, in our modern society, long shopping trips are often not a necessity but pure pleasure! - In the past, social stereotypes were even harder on women. The only life goal that they were “supposed” to have was getting married and starting a family. The saddest thing is that many of them really had no other choice. - One of the most important things in our life is our health. Thankfully, here women now have the upper hand too! The days when medicine used to be tricky to get access to are long gone. Today, seeing any doctor on any day is a piece of cake! - If anyone older than you told you something bad, you'd probably be ashamed and pick at the pieces of your shattered self-confidence. Nowadays, this stereotype doesn't have a hold on young women as they know that even people with more life experience shouldn't dictate what they should do. - Drinking enough pure water throughout the day is essential for great looks and a healthy body. However, just a few decades ago, this wasn't common knowledge!

Well, aging does effect beauty. Several factors increase aging. 1. Stress 2. Poor diet 3. Poor exercise habits 4. Poor nutrition 5. Having kids 6. Not hydrating and being in the sun too much. 7. Poor sleeping habits. You will age. Your looks will deminish.

30-years old women look young because 30 is a young age (physically). And now they are not married for 10 years by that age and has not give birth to several children. So they look just how they should. Like 30 y men look if they didnt do drugs and alcohol since 20

robiking011 (2 months ago)
What we need to understand is that before the 20th century, women were only seen as ''baby making machines''. Women were only seen as valuable when they were in their fertile years, which is their 20s, specially their early 20s. Once a woman was no longer in her fertile years, she was no longer seen as valuable. The age of 30 was seen as the ''expiration date'' for women because it's was thought that that was the age women start to lose her fertility. Of course now at days women have become more liberated and have shown that they's more to them than just having babies. But even to this day, the ages of 30 or 40 are still seem as expiration dates for women.

Oh please. Women in the media today look younger than ever before, due to plastic surgery, Botox, Juvederm, and other treatments to keep them looking young.

🙄🙄 #9 is the reason why there are so many single moms in welfare... And the main reason they look younger nowadays is the sunscreen that wasn’t available until 30 years ago‼️‼️

I got over the "past my prime" phase at 25. I of the things expected of me before that age. I'm turning 30 later this year. I have just started living and I'm not changing my clothes to look and feel like an old woman.

https://youtu.be/9QTO_kdq_cc this shows how Marilyn Monroe aged and she looked stunning in her 30s so I don’t agree with all this modern bs if anything the modern diet makes us age faster and makes s more sick this video is total bogus!!

30 is the new 20
Solja Of Christ (3 months ago)
I don’t believe this Marilyn Monroe looked the best in her thirties and that is when she was sleeping with the president as well so this is just made up she definitely did not look old even at 35 and Elizabeth Taylor played cleopatra when she was 29 women get old because of the loss of collagen in the skin and that really becomes obvious from mid to late thirties and it has been the same for many years even if we go way way back Henry Tudor had an affair with Anne boylen when she was 25 and married her at 32 and she was stunning then she tore the whole church apart in her 30s so it’s definitely not a modern thing thirty just is not the age when the skin shows aging it has very little to do with makeup or clothes once the skin ages the best makeup and clothes can’t hide it something that becomes obvious from late thirties to forties

KansasGirl (3 months ago)
This just doesn't ring true. I think you've got 30 - 40 years ago confused with 50 -60 years ago. When I was in my 20's, 40 years ago, I looked forward to being in my 30's when I knew I would be hitting my prime. My friends and I were career women, we dressed in really great, classic clothes, we traveled, and we were beautiful. In fact, I was wearing false eyelashes way back then long before they became the norm. This video is bad and poorly researched.

Stephanie Pappas (3 months ago)
lol! holdovers from the days where people married in their teens, had kids starting from age 18, and were grandparents by their late 30s. life expectancy is up, people are delaying marriage and kids a bit, women have more options (across the board: family, kids, jobs, etc); also sunscreen and retinoids for skin health. (and of course cosmetics, hair dye, and a host of other things). Plus we have role models who are young at heart—and often young of face—of all ages!

I doubt the reason is all chemicals, shopping and surgery. It’s probably less smoking, more drinking water, and having less or no kids
Lex Morningstar (3 months ago)
I completely disagree with number 1. I feel we're at an age where we're obsessed with trying to hold onto youth as much as possible. 18 year Olds are opting for preventative botox and the rates of plastic surgery have increased since the birth of instagram.

Botox, fillers, peels and airbrushing 😂
MsGlamourcat (3 months ago)
It's because most live at home longer now and their parents ensure they have everything they need, therefore they have less stress and more "ME" time. They also spend more money on cosmetics, cosmetic procedures and skin care. They generally have children later in life and children are a big stress - the sleep deprivation, the financial stress, the constant and high demands... and photoshop and filters.

"Women are wearing makeup every day..." Women have been wearing makeup every day for decades!!! In fact, I think thete are actually FEWER women wearing makeup every day now because they don't feel it's necessary to be beautiful.
MissVasques (3 months ago)
Shani April But were it full-face make-up every day or more lips, rouge and eyes and possibly brows? I mean today there are products that can give a more airbrushed look were wrinkles seemingly disapear or are severely diminished.

In past generations smoking, drinking and sun bathing were considered to make a people beautiful. In reality these habits that were glamorized in TV and film aged people. Add to the problem Measles, Mumps, Rubella, Polio, Smallpox, Tetanus, Diphtheria, acellular pertussis, and limited antibiotics, people had many things taking a toll on their bodies. My dad survived Smallpox as a bay and was left with scares. My great uncle had pole when he was 2 years old and his left arm never grew after that point. We are blessed to live in a time were we have the choice to avoid all these things.
