It's the higher degree of melanin. It acts as a natural protective agent in the skin. Haven't you noticed how blacks tend to age without many wrinkles? It's the same in Asians, Indians, or those with darker complexions. Whites need to get UV light in order to produce melanin.
Also, it could be the umbrellas they use and their fear of the sun lest they look like peasants.
But, I don't think they necessarily look younger
than western women when they're in their forties and fifties+,even without the wrinkles. They lack a certain youthful exuberance, I suppose, after years of spousal and familial abuse.
And back to the double eyelids. Yes, women (and men) who are dissatisfied with their appearance tend to go for plastic surgery options to help improve their self-image. Sometimes, they go overboard in this department to the point where they look like clowns, but I don't think they're aware of this after so many treatments. That's kind of sad too. Just saw an interesting show on Discovery about that, last week.
But mostly, I think it's sadder to alter one's appearance to take on the features of a different race other than your own.
Imagine if whites decided they want to look Asian and start getting eye surgery to make their eyes slantier, because they think it's more beautiful.
Do you think this happens? I really doubt it.
