Inktober Self-portrait

Made a self-portrait and inked it on a whim. The poor Moleskin was totally unprepared.
Why is it that when I draw myself, my normally messy hair looks miraculously good and my face looks 10 years younger? Is this the nature of self-portraits? I know many artists who do this also.
Closing self-portrait thought: Unlike selfies, self-portraits are not evidence of vanity so much as evidence that the artist had very few available models.
