Just go face the mirror, know the truth. Come on, hurry up!! Stand before the mirror and ask " Mirror, Mirror, do i look young? " If it says YES, then start blushing, infact you'll naturally. If it says NO, then start using your blusher( i mean put on your make up ) and then ask, it says YES. External beauty is something which majority are worried about, because that is what shows outside. Internal beauty shows to only those who know you better and not to strangers. So, i'm talking for the majority here. Tell me, how you look for your age? You look Young / old / exactly as your age suggests? Share everything that people have told about your looks, all comments and compliments. About me, i look younger for my age if i clean shave, remove my glasses and wear attractive clothes, i still have that boyish looks and charm. The bad thing is i'm not look conscious at all, i don't even go for a hair-cut unless it grows long and starts disturbing me....HAHAHA Right now, i look older for my age because of my long beard and moustache. The fact is, i don't have a shaving razor at home from past few weeks and i'm too lazy to go to the shop and buy. HEIGHT OF LAZINESS.....is'nt it?

I look young for my age, which used to bother me. But I don't really care. And it doens't matter to me, if I look old or young, if I AM old or young, I take me as I come. i don't wear make up and don't intend to as I age. it's worthless, and expensive. And I don't really care what people think of how I look!!

Hello there cassidy22, I look young for my age.I am already 31 years old and people would say that I look like im an 19 year old. There are advantages and disadvantages of looking younger that I actually am. I am just enjyoing the advantages and cope with the disadvantages. Hope you have a nice day.

Ok. Well, um... I don't have a talking mirror so I can't ask it. However, people always think I'm younger than I am. When I was younger, people always thought that I was older. But now that I'm older people think I'm younger. So I guess that's a good thing? I hate people thinking I'm younger than I am though. I mean, I'm 25...I don't want people thinking I'm only 20! Maybe when I'm 55 I'll appreciate it more but right now I want to actually look my age. Sometimes I look at people the same age as me and I compare myself to them and I definitely don't look my age compared to them. I just still have fun with my looks. Hair and clothes and such. So I guess that's partially what keeps me looking so young...my attire.

If its just a matter of hair graying, you can dye/colour them.

I think I am alright for my age,only greying of hair has created the problem...lol..but i manage it by dying. And I do my Yoga regularly to keep myself fit. It lessens your expenses on parlour, you really get a natural glow by it.I have made my whole family to do it and they accept that their problems related to health are all gone.

I'M 26 years old and I look younger then my age. Sometimes it,s cool, but some other time I don't really like that. For example, sometimes, when I go buy some lottery, they still ask for my card. I don't look that young (here you have to be 18 to buy lottery). Also it,s funny because I have 2 years of difference with my brother (he's younger) but people always think that I'm the youngest lol

HAHAHA:)) Men usually don't look as much younger because of the rough look on their face, i mean it happens once after they start shaving their beard, the face becomes rough and looks change. Women don't have that problem, that's why its difficult to make out thier age.

I have been told that I look young for my age. I am 43 and I have been proofed many times lately. That makes me feel so good when I get proofed, but I know that I don't look that young. When I look at people I went to school with, they look older than I do. I guess it is because I try to stick with the current styles and trends.

Until a few years back I used to look much younger than what I am, but life has been hard on me lately and now I have to be honest and say that I look older than what I am. I have really dark circles under my eyes that don't go away even if I sleep a lot and I look tired 0 which I am - Since I'm a bit depressed as well that makes me look even older. It is strange to look at myself in the mirror these days....

Just like me :) I look maybe 8 years younger than my actual 61 years, but I usually have a full beard and moustache which, I'm told, makes me look older. I should care!

Yes it is laziness.LOL Ive been told by many of people that I dont look my age. When I was younger and I was told I didnt look my age it would bother me. NOw Im loving it.LOL I think it comes from your heritage. For exmple my aunt who just turned 71 looks like she is 51. I just told her last week that she doesnt look her age at all. And she told me that I too dont look my age its because we are hungarian.

A happy face definitely looks younger. I've seen your pic, you do look younger for your age. Although i don't say you look too young for your age, you do look somewhat younger in that happy photo with your hubby, for sure. Don't think i'm just being polite, i'm 100% frank for whatever i said. xxx

Me? I guess it depends, there are times that I look exactly my age, well it happens only when I'm not talking hehehehe..but when I start talking, everything changes!LOL! But most of the time I look young for my age. There were quite a few times here that they asked me for an ID when I went to a bar with my husband (since my husband is older than me..LOL!). I'm still naive and childlike in many ways..my husband even said that I'm still a baby LoL!! Guess some of the reasons why I look young for my age is because I don't wear heavy make-up or most of the times I don't wear make-up. And most importantly is I smile and laugh a lot!! good facial massage no? *smiles* take care. cheers! :D

I think that I look just my age. I have never had a problem with age. To me, it is just a number. I'll bet that I could look younger by wearing make up or more stylish clothing. But that really doesn't bother me so, I'll just stay the way that I am. LOL

A lot of people say that I look young for my age. They say that I look about 18 years old, but I'm 26. Many people don't believe I have a child, they think she is my sister. When I wear my hair in a pony tail it looks like I'm 16 years old. Whenever I go to the local casino, they always ask to see my ID, they say that I look about 20, and of course I have to ask them for a stamp thats says I'm 21 or older in case I get stop by a security guard on the casino floors. But of course I like all of these compliments, it makes me feel good inside. Hopefully when I get older, in my 30's and 40's, I'll still look young.
