I have a skinny face and I hate it. What should I do?

Perspective: I imagine that you are spending a fair amount of time thinking about this. Get some more perspective from others - talk to friends or other trusted people. Put it in a bigger picture - what are your positive qualities? Focusing on things you don't like about yourself tends to be self confirming - you are unhappy with yourself, others respond not to your skinny face but rather to your unhappiness.

Growth: Most growth is usually done by 18 if you're a female. Males will still grow a little more; however the majority of growth is done. A simple test to see if any growth is left is to take a hand wrist x-ray. This can then be coorelated to the head and face all based in growth research studies. Consult with an orthodontist and ask for a hand wrist x-ray.

Red face: Your face has many blood vessels -- and many are close to the surface of your skin. This can increase as you age. They are very responsive to emotion like embarrassment, anger, etc. Because of your mind-body connection. Also some people have a condition called rosacea -- you get red face w/spicy foods, heat, alcohol, etc.
