Not necessarily. I got my first hint of an eye wrinkle about age 41. No kidding. I'm 45 now. Still not full of crow's feet.

The skin under my eyes and above my lids is thinner. I hate that.

Aside from someone telling you you look older, are there other ways to know if you're aging or don't look as young as you used to? I know I was called ma'am today while I was in a retail store by a older salesperson..it put me in a bad mood. I'm only 23
How do you know? Uh...the moment you are born you start aging...you're actually on the path to death if you want to get morbid. It's easy to get caught up in the worldly worship of youth.

I try and do everything I can to take care of myself. I eat right, exercise, take care of my skin, wear sunscreen. I buy moderately expensive skin creams...however I believe what you eat, and sleep are the most important things you can do.

I definitely have noticed I am aging...although I think better than most. I have decided to stop freaking out about it and enjoy life. Worrying about it isn't going to do anything, you can't stop the years from coming. You can't go back to being your prime.

If anything aging takes a sense of grace and style. I'm grateful for my mom, who is a great role model for me. She is turning 65 this year and frankly she is stunningly beautiful. She takes care of herself, she eats right, she is at her ideal weight, she dresses with style. Granted she has been blessed, as she was always beautiful and has aged wonderfully. But really, it's her attitude that makes her shine.

Sorry but I believe it
you look like you're in your early 30s for sure.

Not to everyone.

P.S. No need to apologize. I'm very happy with the way I look. Great shape and great skin after birthing seven children. Can't beat that! I'm 38 so early 30s is still a compliment.
