They say stress can age you significantly, so it’s no surprise that the President of the United States, Barack Obama, looks like he’s aged more than a decade over the last four years.

In one of the most stressful times for the United States, it makes sense that Barack Obama has see his hair turn grey and his skin wrinkle since he became President as a result of the 2008 election.


While Barack Obama gets set to take his oath of office on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day on Monday, his appearance is notably different than it was when he was sworn in on January 20th, 2009.

The 51-year-old commander-in-chief shows the toll the last four years have taken on him in photographic comparisons, as his eyes are bloodshot, his hair has turned grey, and his once flawless skin has wrinkled and developed imperfections.

Nobody said it was an easy job, and most presidents aged rapidly when taking the Oval Office.
