Hello there,

On the last 5 years, having went through much stress ,my skin color paled & many wrinkles showed on my forehead.

Although i don't notice much difference regarding my aging face, still some friends do not recognize me when i run into them...& it takes them sometime before recognizing who i am and say "Oh hello, that is you, U have changed!'..

it kind of put me down...
do U go through somethings like that.
Thanks for reading :) :) :)

No, sir. I have a baby face so I look younger than what I am. People saying you've changed shouldn't put you down. Why does that bother you?

Don't worry about "you've changed." Maybe it's for the better, yeah?

Uhm, well I used to look older when I was in my teens and early 20s. People always thought I was 25, but now people think I'm younger. ??? Maybe the same will happen to you.

Try moisturizers too. :D

Because it means that by the time i am 35 i will look like 49....
and .........................by the time i am 40 i will look like 65....

This applies also to general fitness issues...:) :) :)

I don't really know. I haven't had people comment on it in awhile (maybe because I've mostly avoided people over the past few years), but last I knew, people thought I looked younger than my age. I think I've aged a lot over the past couple of years, though, and maybe look my age or older? I hope not.

Yes, I look old for my age. It's a curse. :|

No. I've been told too many times I look like a preteen. :sigh

Even my mum tends to comment that I look like I'm still in middle school, and kids in my grade always seem to mistake me for a freshman. I'm always handed the kids' menu at restaurants, too. I guess it has to do with my appearance and how I carry myself and generally act; it's all rather disconcerting as I'm going to college next year and I'd like to appear at least a semi-mature young adult.

When I was about to attend college, a friend of my mom thought I was about to start high school. When I registered to vote, the lady stopped me. She thought I was 12.

Sometimes, though, I look in the mirror and think how old I am. Maybe it's just my low self-esteem. I guess I look young because I don't wear makeup and I am not sophisticated when it comes to fashion. I am also short which I really hate.

People generally guess my age. I've never been told I look older, and the youngest age people have guessed is 18, which isn't really that much younger.

People usually think i'm around 16. I have about as many gray hairs as someone in their late 30s-early 40s, though, but they're all in the front.

I've been mistaken for being 14 a few times.

Probably doesn't help that I don't really dress like a 17 year old.

Go for superfoods if you want to prevent aging. Thats where it's at.

I was told I looked about 16 when I was 12, but now I don't know anymore... I'm only 18, so I hope I don't look 22. I personally don't think I do but I haven't asked for anyone else's opinion.
