When she released her forehead jewel jutsu thing, she looked as old as the 3rd.  Her and Jiraiya are supposed to be near the same age aren't they?  Jiraiya looks like 30 something with no magic jutsu but Tsunade looks like 90 with no magic jutsu.  Why is this?

@sickVisionz: chakra expenditure, her magic jutsu boosted the crap out of her stat by consuming chakra, chakra is the thing that makes them(or at least her) looks young
so when it got consumed......

That's the trade-off of her youth-justu. When activated the 50 year-old looks 25, deactivated she looks 75. It's either one or the other, I don't think it's physically possible for her to look her actual age.

Happens when her chakra's completely exhausted as taking damage of any sort doesn't seem to cause her to revert out of her young form.

Pretty much she's actually old and using that technique uses up a lot of her chakra.

It may just be the art style but here's my question... 

 When they're young they all look and seem about the same age so I'm assuming that they are

As an adult, Orochimaru looks about 30 something

Jiraiya looks about mid 30s-early 40s

 With a magic jutsu to make her look super young... she looks about early 30s, the same as everyone else her age

Without her magic jutsu she looks more wrinkly and decripit than her, who's the same age as her mentor

yeah i would say she gets older the more she has to focus her chakara into herself to make her younger it could go wrong and kill her though..

i've been wondering that too... if jiraiya, orochimaru and tsunade are all practically the same age, why is it that tsunade's true form is so wrinkly and old? And did u notice, they never actually show her entire face? its always her arms and hands, which look so grandma-ish........WEIRD!
