Some people age beautifully and gracefully, others become even better looking with age, like fine wine, and then there’s Yang Dan. She’s a gorgeous woman from China who’s been working as a weather forecast presenter on Chinese TV since 1996 until now and it seems like she hasn’t aged at all since.
She got her job when she was only 22 and she’s now 44. You know, people say Asian women have amazing genes and always look beautiful, but it’s been 22 years and she still looks pretty much the same. The only slight change that we can see is her hair, in fact it seems like her hair has become shinier and has more volume to it now in comparison to 20 years ago.
Yang Dan has now been nicknamed the ageless goddess, and rightly so. People are still wondering how is this possible and how does she manage to look so good. Does she have a very precise and complicated beauty and skincare routine? Is there a secret fountain of eternal youth in hidden somewhere in China? Some viewers even jokingly put forward a conspiracy theory that every single forecast for the past 20 years has been pre filmed in one week.
This whole thing started with a video montage of Yang Dan through the years that has been posted by the weather program in celebration of International Women’s Day. It was captioned with “Many web users have grown up watching her show. They marveled why they have grown older but she hasn’t. What’s more? It appears she is younger and younger.”
The original video has more than 20 thousands comments from viewers reminiscing about how they’ve grown up watching her on TV, discussing how flawless she looks and theorizing ways in which she managed to escape the toll of time.
Here’s a little info we found about miss Yang. She was born in November, 1973. She studied in Beijing Broadcasting Institute, graduated in 1995 and started working for the China Central Television Station’s weather show in 1996. Not only does she host two weather shows at China Central Television Station but she also lends her voice to the weather program at China National Radio. So basically if you want to plan your vacation and find out what’s the weather going to be like in China – she’s your best bet.
