That is a dangerous game as you get older. Just want you to be aware that sometimes they will guess a lot older even if you have a baby face because they think you are probably older than you look

Yeah, my husband told me that a while back - he said if people ask, add 10 years to your age and they will feel like **** because you look so good for XYZ! LOL

Physical mobility, stamina and mental cognition are far more important than appearing youthful in terms of facial appearance. But then I am married so no need to continue the hunt.

I used to look young for my age but no more. It always gets you in the end. Even Asian. Seen that funny comic strip about how asian women age...all svelte(20s,30s,40s) until menopause and then poof! Of course it is just an exagerration.

Watching older films from the 1980s,1990s and notice the actors are so thin then yet some still look good 30 years later but some have let themselves go and appear older than their age. Unhealthy as well.

Not always. I had a cousin who had pronounced nasolabial folds in her late teens. She had an eating disorder so that may have contributed to it, but still.

Have you seen Cher and Madonna in recent years? They don't have a choice either.

I take really really good care of my skin and I eat lots of fruit and vegetables. I'm just lucky I guess.
