There are countless stereotypes about Asian women. One stereotype says we all have sleek, black hair. Another says that we are incapable of getting fat and a dangerous one is the misconception that we are immune to breast cancer.
While many of these myths are over-generalizations (and problematic ones at that), there are a few of them that have us nodding in agreement. An example is the stereotype that many Asians look much younger than their biological age in comparison to other ethnicities. While this is certainly not the case for all Asians, we will admit that we have come across some awfully impressive examples of Asians who defy their age.
Just take a look at the following women and you’ll see exactly what we mean.

Mizutani has two daughters and her eldest, who is in her early 20s, is often mistaken as her sister. During a TV appearance, she revealed that she spends five hours a day just taking care of her skin. Mizutani advised other to make sure they’re drinking plenty of water to flush out toxins, eating a fresh, healthy and balanced diet, using vitamin E based creams, sunscreen, cleansing, toning, moisturizing, getting plenty of sleep and not smoking.
