Your folks have aged well.
That's right, check out mom and pop. First degree relatives can give you the strongest sense of how you'll age, since genes direct the cellular functions that have an enormous impact on appearance.
A baby face.
In a society where angular, chiseled features are often glamorized, experts say it's actually the round-faced among us who will reap the richest anti-aging benefits. Scientists refer to a baby face as a "neotenous" facial structure, which is characterized by large round eyes, round cheeks, a large curved forehead, a small jaw, a small, short nose and features that are located lower down the face
There's a reason great bone structure is beloved; it creates the shape of an upside-down "triangle of youth" that dermatologists often refer to as the greatest subconscious indicator that a person is young. With age, jowls and other features can droop, turning that triangle bottom-heavy and making you look old. However, with high cheekbones supporting your face, that triangle shape won't droop as much.
Strong teeth and bones.
In the same way that high cheekbones provide solid structure for your face, a set of full teeth and a strong bite can provide age-defying facial support by maintaining the upside-down "triangle of youth" into older age. With the passage of time or less-than-auspicious genes, teeth can wear down to a shorter length and move inwards, resulting in a sunken look, thinner lips and more wrinkling around the mouth and cheek area.
Flowing, thick locks of hair have long been an evolutionary signal of health, as a well-nourished body and diet rich in nutrients like biotin are necessary to grow a crowning head of hair. And as such, we subconsciously view hair as a signal of vitality, or lack thereof. People with thinning hair look older than people of the same age who have thicker hair.
Adults with higher facial symmetry show a strong resistance to stressors they may have encountered growing up. Time and gravity can also cause sagging, pigmentation and wrinkling that emphasizes asymmetries in the face, making the complexion look less and less even with passing years.
The greater amount of melanin in deeper skintones can preserve the youth of your skin longer- but there's a catch: You burn more easily with lighter skin, which can potentially give you more fine lines, wrinkles and sun damage later on.
