Why do Russian women age poorly?
First of all is there any truth in this? I guess it's true to some extent. Some of the 20 something Russian girls you see on the television and on Russian dating sites are amongst the hottest girls on the planet! And I guess it's no coincidence that so many modelling agencies hire tall and thin teenagers from Russia, Belarus, Ukraine and other Eastern European countries.
Sadly Russian women don't seem to age so well, and the older Russian women you see on the TV tend to be quite overweight and not in such great health.
So why do they age so badly?
How fast a woman ages is to some extent dependent upon genetics. And it's a simple fact that Caucasian women don't tend to age as well as Asian women. From living in Europe, and visiting Asia on vacation, I've seen this with my own eyes.
Not all aging is due to genetics though - far from it! Women who don't live their lives well won't always age well.
I guess smoking and alcohol are two major culprits. A lot of Eastern European women smoke. I guess quite a number drink as well. And in Eastern Europe it tends to be strong spirits like vodka that are most popular, and these usually cause far more alcohol related health issues compared to wines or beers.
Eastern European food isn't always so healthy either. Given the cold climate during the winter there's a lot of fat and carbs that will cause women to pile on the pounds, especially in later life.
