Did prior generations have better skin?
That’s an interesting question and I’m thinking it depends on where your family lived and what types of jobs they had. Some of the prior generations really stayed out of the sun more than we do (and sun exposure makes a huge difference to aging). Women earlier this century weren’t flying around to Hawaii, the Bahamas or Mexico and they generally weren’t participating at all in outdoor or mountain sports. They were covered up more and often wore hats outdoors. Also, the ozone layer wasn’t thinning then. It’s hard to know isn’t it!
