The secret of younger-looking skin

Me with 7-year old.

7-year old: "How old are you?"

Me: "I'm 35".

7-year old: "Gosh, I thought you were much younger."

Me: "Yes, most people think I'm younger than I am. Do you know why that is?"

7-year old: "No."

Me: "It's because I've got autism. Most autistic people look younger than their actual age."

7-year old. "Oh. I thought it was because you wear loads of make-up."

Me, looking incredulous: "I'm not wearing any make-up!"
