She looks twice her age.

How to express the opposite of the sentence above, i.e. the fact that she has youthful appearance. Is it "She looks twice less her age"?

    Uh...this isn't obvious?

    The opposite is clearly "her age looks twice her!"

  • Anything relating to age can backfire. By noticing this 'fact' you are also saying that they are not young. Instead a compliment to their energy/aura/presences/personality is more likely to convey the message while respecting the life lived.

  • I refuse to upvote anything here, since as @bye says the answrer should be perfectly obvious. An interesting thing would be to know of similar expressions in other languages - that differ in some way from the English.
