I’ve always been a younger looking guy. And I have to admit, I hated it. Although, when I was younger, and even looking in the last I always thought that people in the past looked older than they do now. Is this the truth? Or was it my mind playing tricks on me?
We’ve had a ton of technological advances in our time, which is important to the medical field in the way that we are more nutritious than we’ve ever been. This plays a part of us looking younger than people in the past. Although, there’s a major factor that makes us look more youthful than our elders: fashion.
The Truth About People In The Past Looking Older
New fashion styles have altered our perception of how old people actually look. When modernized, people can look decades younger than they actually are. This is the truth of the matter, it’s not any strange conspiracy, just style changes over the years. When we see people our age in a photo from the past, their outfits & hairstyles play a big part of why they look as old as they do. It’s almost like an optical illusion. There’s a trend now of daughters dressing their moms up in the style that they wear (before and after, video linked). With this video, we can clearly see that it IS style that alters our mind, which is very interesting to see.
