15 Asian Celebrities Reimagined With the FaceApp

via Instagram /

No amount of moisturizer or how many times you tell yourself that “Asian don’t raisin” can save you from the power of the aging feature on FaceApp.

If you have been on Instagram or Twitter over the past couple of days, you’ve probably noticed plenty of gray hairs and wrinkly skin while scrolling through your timelines.

No, it is not because your friends or favorite celebrities aged in their sleep or went through a time machine like (SPOILERS) Captain America in “Avengers: Endgame.”

They’ve been using the FaceApp, which is available to download for free from the Apple App Store and Google Play for Android.

The app first went viral two years ago, but the recent old age filter update has made it on the trending list on social media once more.

FaceApp was developed by a small team in Saint-Petersburg, Russia, according to TechCrunch.

We’ve compiled 15 Asian and Asian American celebrities and put them through FaceApp’s old age filter.
