Where/when did you start..."AGING"? KNZ. 3 kids; Washington 59255 posts

So, i'm 24.
without make up, i look about 19. i've always looked young, with make up, probably 20..ish.
But, lately i've not been wearing make up at all, and i can't tell...if i look tired, or if i'm...aging.



So, i'm just curious..where/when did you notice your face was..aging?



I'm getting dark circles under my eyes when i used to not (and i've been sleep deprived plenty in life)
And also, like, a wrinkle line under my eye.



Not meaning to offend anyone who thinks they're older :D
Just...curious.



And, is there anything i can do to get rid of these things?
My doc thinks i'm crazy and didn't see anything, i think she was just being nice.



ETA: also, i've always had nice skin, i've noticed this pregnancy is doing the opposite for me, what's good for...face skin.

I've had gray hair since I was 16....it's a genetic thing.



I am 34 and I still look 20-21. It's a pain in the ass.

I'm 30 and don't look my age. I never have. It seems like the older I get, the bigger gap between the age I look and the age I am...

People tell me I look 17 but I am 22 lol... but yea I don't see any signs of aging YET lol. I don't even have forehead wrinkles...I think I age well because of my connective tissue disorder, even my mom looks 10 years younger than she is..my sister looks younger than she is too.



ETA: I have pretty much ALWAYS had dark circles, idk if it is because of how pale I am or what but yea sucks. I just use a good concealer lol...I use the one from benefit..I LOVE it. It is called erase paste.

I'm 26. In the past 6 months or so I've been noticing how rough I look without makeup. I've always had bad skin, though - that is one big reason. I got my first wrinkle too. Barely noticeable, but it's from making my "WTF?" face so much. :?

Ahh it could be! I don't think my mom has forehead wrinkles either lol. I know people who had the forehead wrinkles as teens too. Yea but I pretty much have ALWAYS had dark circles, they have never gone away...idk if it is because I am so pale or what lol. I just use a really good concealer & it helps a ton.
