A mother who claims that she & # 39; gets older & # 39 ;, is regularly mistaken for a teenager and asked to show an identity card for a drink during a night out.
Alice Dawson, 31, says that her skin care routine, drinking a lot of water and eating a healthy diet has led to strangers because she thinks she is only 15 years old.
But the mother of two recognizes bizarrely that she was often mistaken for a middle-aged woman when she was a teenager.
Alice, from Colchester, Essex, said: "I agree that I have an element of Benjamin Button over me, I suppose I am going backwards.
"I do not really know why I look older on that picture than in the now picture, it's really a bad, bad look.
"I know that there will be a point where I will not look younger and that I will look older, but at the moment I think it is going well with me.
"Many people have said that I look older on the other picture, I find that quite surprising, because I personally think that I am pretty outdated from tanning beds and stuff like that."
The mother who stays at home swears by coconut oil as her skin care product. She also avoids fried food and only drinks water during the day to keep herself refreshed.
Alice continued: "Many people say that I look young for my age, so I can not look bad.
"I used to get an ID code until two years ago, and now I only get an ID code every time I go outside.
"I have never been accused of having false IDs, but some people have really looked up and gone". They look surprised when they see my birthday.
"I like to be considered younger, sometimes it irritates me a bit because I feel that I look too young.
"I know that sounds silly, but I just say:" I wish people would take me seriously as I am an adult ".
"I never felt like I looked older, even my mother always said to me that I have a young face."
"We used to have no contours and all the things we do now, I had no idea how to make make-up and stuff like that, so maybe that's why I look older.
"I think my face is a bit slimmed down and that my features look something too, I do not know if that is why I look younger now."
But Alice admits that she has wrinkles and believes that everyone has his & # 39; imperfections & # 39; must celebrate.
"You can see imperfections in yourself more than other people can.
"I certainly have something around my eyes, but I think everyone is really doing it, they are laughing lines.
"I really hope that I get well older."
