    My skin looks better than it did before minoxidil, but that's because I put on my evening lotion every night now that I muck with my hair, too.

    I'm...dubious of this, honestly. There are guys who have been slapping it on their faces for beard growth for years, and none have reported this problem. It can be quite irritating to the skin, though.

    Minoxidil is a sucky blood pressure medication because it's halflife is so short, not because it was aging people.

    But hair loss may be associated with premature skin aging because of the estrogen/testosterone balance. I'm going a bit off the cuff here, but higher levels of estrogen binding to estrogen beta receptors means younger-looking skin and prolongs the anagen phase. So issues with cutaneous balance might make you look older. Anyway, I've certainly looked younger after starting to use a phytoestrogen cream (no feminization with that, gentlemen, and no breast cancer risk, ladies--it's receptor beta selective and doesn't trigger receptor alpha).
