This is so true. For some reason, women especially are afraid to grow old and even more, they’re afraid to look old. Both of my grandmothers aged naturally and they were beautiful. With luck, I’ll have the same genetics and I too will age beautifully. If not, well, that’s life.
My mother-in-law, now 78 and suffering from Lewy Boy Dementia, is as beautiful as ever. She’s never worn makeup, nail polish, or jewelry, nor has she ever dyed her hair. Somehow (genetics maybe?), she still has a full head of naturally dark brown hair, not a single white or gray hair to be found. It’s incredible, really. (She swear it’s because she drank a cup of water mixed with one tbsp. of apple cider vinegar every day, but I wouldn’t try it if I were you. She also has no sense of smell or taste.)
I happen to like the natural progression of things. Taking a scalpel or a lazer to my face in order to appear younger than my age is simply not natural and something I have no desire to to do.
