I think I am but I come from a family that ages pretty well and my mom and my aunts all look younger than their age. I'm turning 39 at the end of this year and I DO notice the lines around my eyes though, but I just continue to moisturize and wear sunscreen religiously and eat well and stay hydrated.

I'm 37 and my skin is doing great. My mom is 74 with amazing skin, no crows feet, minimal lines around her mouth, etc That's good genes.

However, my hair is crazy grey and I'm getting serious facial hair. EWWW. I've had my hormone levels checked a few times and nothing comes up abnormal. I have no idea what's causing it and it's really embarrassing.

I'm just aging normally. I'm okay with that. =)

I have no wrinkles but my hair would be 100% grey if I didn't have it colored. I'm 39.

i look a lot younger than i am which is good, but i still want to fight those wrinkles and whatever else comes along! lol! last month i got carded which i realize most people have to card, but this guy looked at my license and said wow you don't look that old! i said how old do i look and he stuttered "uumm, i'm not good at guessing but you sure don't look that age!" lol!

So far I am aging gracefully. I don't take that for granted. Very grateful for it. I don't do anything extra other than basic hygiene and wash my face. I should probably use moisturizer. Idk. Bump

i have more greys popping up this year. i wasn't going to pluck them like my hairdresser said to do but they are so wiry/crazy that i just ended up cutting them.

I was aging gracefully until I got cancer.  Now I look like shit.
