Looking at the mirror: Do you look older than your age? Or younger?

I turned 30 years old three months ago. Honestly, though I can already see signs of the years that had passed but a lot of people around me are saying that I look younger than my age. My self assessment is the same, I think and personally believe that I indeed look younger than my age. Just a few years younger, ha ha. How about you? Are you conscious about it? What can you say?

I look 20 years younger than I am and so proud of it. Most people ask if I am 25 or 26, I always respond pick one they sound great to me. When I am with my children people will argue with me that they are not my kids. Ha, I love it so, especially since I am like the mold that created them so they think that we are brother and sisters. My family has been blessed as well as we all look a lot younger than any of really are.

I can say I look just what my age says. But I rely more on people to tell their guess on my age. I get a plus or minus 1 from my real age. lol!

Many people say I look younger as well (then again I'm only 22, but still :P), even underage sometimes! I went to a concert with my boyfriend in which you had to be over 18 to go in, and when it was time to show my ticket the security guard also asked to see my ID because he thought I was underage... good thing I was able to prove him wrong, hehe.

People tell me I look younger. I have dar olive skin, I put on sun screen, and I keep my hair long. And I dress young and act young. That's what matters. I believe that the feeling in the heart is what really comeso ut of the person.

I look younger. For the longest time, all the way through my 20's, I looked like a 14 year old. Maybe 18 if I put on make up. I'm no good at figuring out how old anyone looks, including myself, so that's from what other people have told me. Now I'm 35 and I look about 25. Again, according to other people.

Getting old is always an issue when we reached 40. And,i can say that i don't care about the number. My profile picture was taken only last night,i had this habit of taking picture thru Facebook camera and post in my account (almost everyday) So,you can decide how do i look. I will be turning 40 next month. And a proud mom of 3 young kids aged 16,14 and 12

I have always thought that I look younger than my age. I'm not sure if that's what other people think or not :-) but it's what I think and hope is true! I've been told the same, so it's not just my own opinion. I recently saw pictures of my class reunion and... well some people just show their age faster than others, I think. :-) I recognized some of the people right away but with others, it was like "who IS that?!"

Hi Ethan, I am very conscious with my looks. I think everybody is concern of this one no matter what their age is. We are always, at one point or another, is try to look the best everytime! I always get the compliment that I am younger than my age. Maybe the big factor is that I am petite so people always get confused of my real age. That's the advantage of my height. ha ha . . . Now, if only I can maintain a slimmer physique. he he... that's another story though. So how do we maintain a younger look? Of course, eating healthy food, getting a lot of sleep, and maintaining the positive outlook in life. Always smile. I always try to do these things so that I can project a prettier aura, and of course, look younger as much as possible and always staying happy. Good luck., Ethan!

I think that I probably look like I am just my age when looking in the mirror. It is evident to see that I am no longer the baby that I used to be but there are other times that people think that I am a little bit younger than I am. I'm also 30 years old and it has really only been within the past couple of years that I've started to think that I look my age. I really don't like aging too much, but I've come to accept that it is a part of life that I have to learn to deal with.

Hi, I like to look at the mirror and I do it everyday. When I comb my hair and put some make up, for sure, I need a mirror to do it. If you were to ask me,do I look younger than my age? Then I won't give any comments ,and this question should be answer by other people. They should be able to do the judgement and give the right comments about it. But there was once I went to my car service centre for car servicing and the lady staff told me that I look still young and she did not expect that I am already in my mid 30s and already a mother of one kid. of course, I am so happy with her compliments.

I look younger. I'm 24 but people assume I'm still I'm in my teens. Even I feel like I'm still a teenager - sometimes I forget my real age :| However, I noticed that I'm slowly catching up to my age though, cause I'm not getting enough sleep _

I am a golden girl, yes passed half centenary, but don't feel an inch of the age I am in. I still have youthful face but my bloating body give away my real age.
