How can I say this? I want to say that a woman looks younger than her really age? Can I say "She bears her age well" ? Or could you suggest a better expression for me? Thank you

“She bears her age well" might be best for an older woman, maybe 70+. I'd say something like, "She looks really good for her age."

There's the expression "to age well" which means to show little signs of aging. I don't think I've ever heard people say "you age well" as a direct compliment though. It's usually something like "you look young for your age."

"She bears her age well" sounds like an insult. 'She looks younger' should be enough. That implies age already. In polite society you should refrain from making any direct comments about a women age. Even in impolite society I wouldn't.
