This study considered the relations between appearance age, real age, skin state, facial proportion, physical index, skin impression and attractiveness impression for women in their 30s and 40s. As a result, it was shown that there is a difference of about 20 years in appearance age in women whose real age differed by only 4 years and also that the appearance age is influenced by the wrinkles of the eye area, pigmented spots, and sagging of the skin. For women in their 40s, there were relations with perceived age and the flexibility of skin and also with the amount of sebum. Moreover, although there was no relation between appearance age and facial proportion or physical index, there was a strong relation between skin impression and attractiveness impression. The appearance of women in their 30s and 40s varies greatly among individuals. The results indicate that the condition of their skin, rather than the facial proportion, strongly influenced the perception of appearance age. Moreover there are differences in the factors and the degree of influence that each factor has upon appearance age, between different age groups.
