So I stopped back at a place I worked when I was young and was totally shocked to see 3 co-workers still there, still doing the same job and looking basically exactly the same as when I worked there. All 3 are women, one was about 40 and was a cook/manager, the other 2 were maybe mid 40's early 50's one is a bar tender the other is a waitress. All of them were heavy smokers and heavy drinkers when I worked there, I'm assuming they are the same from what I gathered from talking to some of the employees. When I saw my manager I said something about how I was amazed that she looked like she hadn't aged and she just kind of smiled/smirked and changed the topic.
Now I know that one of them had a teen age daughter who is now middle aged, just a little younger than I. There is also the owners son who looks like a clone of his father, same size/weight, height and looks of his father, especially at the same age. I've seem a lot of families who have children who look a lot like their parents, but few who look basically identical.
I've seen a lot of women where it is difficult to tell their age but when I have seen people who looked "rough" at mid age, often due to life style (working long hours at hard work, drinking, smoking and maybe drugs, IDK) they often don't age like a fine wine, at least from what I have seen. I don't think these are they type of people to have cosmetic surgery but they may dye their hair, but that doesn't account for the lack of aging that is seen.
Has anyone else ever noticed this, where people don't seem to age properly, other than celebrities? I've never come across any other people like this and to have 3 working together and another that looks basically like clone, I find very odd and the chances of that have to be astronomically low.
So I was wondering what could cause this, something in the water, or food? Maybe something like "witchcraft" (j/k kind of), access to some special skin care cream, etc. IDK what is the reason for this.

It's mostly genetics, I believe. I too have friends like this, and other friends not so much.

Sounds like an episode of the Twilight zone.
Must have freaked you out, so they looked as if they did not age at all?
Where they still spry and moving about fine too?

I'm going with Genetics too.
My sister and I went to a family reunion this past weekend, of family we didn't really know. This lovely young woman was sitting with us while we ate. We had met her mom already. So, while making conversation, I asked how old she was. Mind you, I already figured 17, 18, as did my sister.
She was 30.
Yeah, both our jaws hit the floor.
Sure wish I got the genes from that side of the family!
