 Here's How to Look Younger without Plastic Surgery

If you wish to look younger without going under the knife - surround yourself by older people, suggest psychologists of the Jena University (Germany).

Because when viewing a 30-year-old we estimate his age to be much younger if we have previously perceived faces of older people.

The team found that volunteer testers were systematically wrong at estimating other people's age after having adapted to the faces of people of a specific age group by intensely looking at them.

After studying younger faces the middle-aged test face was estimated as being substantially older.

"These effects occur independently of the viewer's age and sex," said Professor Dr. Stefan R. Schweinberger.

Another result of the study was that when adaptor face and test faces show people of the same sex the after-effects of age perception are even stronger.

"We are able to change the subjective perception of a face," said Schweinberger.

Holger Wiese added, "The age of the person next to you is one of the most important characteristics for our perception of other people. This leads to exciting crossovers into other areas of scientists who are dealing with the interactions of social groups."

The Jena psychologists have published their scientific findings in the scientific journal Vision Research.
