Is it normal that as you age, your face gets slimmer? I'm asking because in a few days I'm going to be turning 25 years old, and I once had a sorta chubbier baby face, and now that's gone. My face is a lot slimmer. So much so that my girlfriend is amazed by it. It's like in a year, my face lost it's chubby baby fat cheeks, and I don't know where they have gone. I bet I've aged at least 4 years within the past year. Which isn't a bad thing, cuz I always thought I looked too kiddish, like I'd be mistaken for still being in high school at the age of 16 when I was in my 20s. So I'm sorta happy about this, but I hope I don't age 4 years every year.

Better living through chemistry, I always say...

Exactly where is Joan?

I mean I'm not bitching or anything, cuz it's nice to finally start looking my age (which is almost 25) but I just want to know if it's normal that my face is slimming.

Yes, I am here to tell you, this 23rd day of December in the year of our Lord 2004, you are normal.

I'm not sure where Joan is. I ate like a bird my whole life, whether it was poverty-induced or the need to be thin for Hollywood, so I never had a chubby face to begin with.

I think it's normal. As you get older, your skin does not replenish stuff like collagen the way that it used to. As a result, people's faces do become flatter, greyer-toned and less elastic (like a worn out rubber band). I always looked very young until about 25. I still looked 18 at 25. Now I am 27 and I think I look about 23.

yea, Keith...I was stunned after seeing your picture to know you were 27. I thought you were like my age :o and I'm like almost 22

It depends. Maybe you're losing weight everywhere and need to be checked by a doctor. I don't kjnow. Some people go either the really fat route or go thin once they get to a certain age.

I've lost weight too, so maybe that's it. But it's like I'm losing automatically. So maybe I'm going the slim route, and if I am, I'm going to be happy. :yeah:

ae wowww

Isn't it because your bones are growing quite quickly, and your skull is filling out your skin. The excess skin was there already, I'm noticing it too, Bacardi.

My neck keeps growing as I get older - if I live to 80 my head will need scaffolding to remain upright!
