Do Black women age more gracefully than other races??
Poll Shows Black Women Think They Look Younger As They Age
We’ve all heard and seen shining examples of the age-old adage, “black don’t crack.” But, now it looks like that statement may be true…
Via HuffPo reports:
Well, that notion was part of Allure’s first-ever anti-aging survey in the April 2013 issue, and the results show that most African Americans do indeed celebrate their age-defying looks.
The monthly publication polled 2,000 women and men on the modern perception of aging attitudes and behaviors. The survey yielded interesting insights about sex (it gets better as you get older), the ideal age (everyone wants to be 31) and going gray (we’re not fans), to name a few. And when it comes to which ethnicity thinks they age the best? African Americans have that in the bag.
The survey found that 86 percent of the African-American participants thought that they aged the best, compared to 81 percent of Asians, 53 percent of Hispanics/Latinos and 46 percent of Whites/Caucasians. We clearly don’t lack self-esteem.
More fab findings from Allure’s survey:
64 percent of black women say they aren’t worried about the physical signs of aging
81 percent of black women think they look younger than other woman their age
65 percent of black women have no intention of considering anti-aging treatments or procedures in the future
In addition, African-American women also believe that a woman stops looking hot around the age of 64. That’s approximately 10 years past the hot “expiration date” given by the rest of the survey participants.
