It also showed that one-third of women felt the pressure to look young at 39, with almost two-thirds using anti-ageing products. One-fifth of women also admitted to tell their age to be 5 years younger than they actually were, and 10 percent asserted to be 10 years younger than they were.

The researchers said that the idea of 'how old was actually old' changes for women with time, as the one in their 20's saw 51 to be the start of old age but women in their 50s thought 75 to be old.
