A 18-year-old member asked:

If i am 20 years old and i'm still currently growing my facial hair , does that mean i'm still on puberty ? does it mean i can still grow in height?

No: There is not much connection between ongoing growth of facial hair and puberty, which is defined by other physical features such as onset of menstruation, voice changed and growth spurts, which are generally complete by 15-16 yrs for girls and 17-18 for boys. Feel better☺️
