It seems every year around my birthday, I start feeling and thinking I look my AGE! Argh! There are several posts on this site that references age, skincare and beauty and I think I get more serious as the years go by. I am no longer in my thirties and I certainly don’t look it!
I would love to say that YES, I am so excited to be over 40 and I’m so excited to see the lines on my face and under my eyes because I love to see how time is aging me…but, seriously, I’m not. I like being over 40, however, I don’t want to look old! The sun has always been a part of my daily life as I am a Phys Ed teacher and that is not helping…having two kids and not sleeping consistently for four years paid a price on my under eyes and my stress usually shows up on my face as well. Grr.. I could go on and on abut all the little things that bug me about my face, but that would not productive.
The point is…what are YOU and I going to do about it? For example, are you going to age naturally and let everything be natural or will you fight getting older with extra skincare products, Botox or facelifts even? Personally, I’m not quite ready for Botox as it is expensive, it’s addicting if you have money to spend on this stuff, and it might not be that healthy for you, maybe?! I am however wanting to fight the aging process with skincare products and by regularly seeing a skincare specialist! Also, I do a lot of “consulting” with my mom friends for what they use and also here on this blog! It is a matter of communicating and I’m wondering if there are any of you out there who would like to comment on aging- gracefully or with a fight?
