Of ageless beauty and anti-ageing products

Standard

I never worry about wrinkles and of getting old, but seeing those thin lines around my eyes gave me the creeps, now it worries me a lot…

Being this conscious about getting old, I’ve searched tips on how to maintain my youthful look. I chanced upon in one of the health column about beauty products that help one regain their youthful look. Beauty products are now in demand most in women’s market. Anti-ageing products were designed to cater men and women of mid 20’s and above to prevent skin ageing, discoloration and the likes. I was so amazed knowing that there are also anti-ageing perfumes that you just need to spray all over just so you can prevent your skin from ageing. I was wondering, is it really an anti-ageing perfume that helps one skin to reveal its youthful look or just spray it all over just so you’ll smell like a teen?

There are anti-ageing moisturizers, lotions, soaps, eye cream, name most of the beauty products and you’ll be surprised that all are offering the same thing: ageless beauty. I adore women who look so young at their age or should I say, I adore those whose beauties are still intact as they aged. Sometimes you’ll be mistaken knowing that ladies at age 20 looks matured at their age and women in 40’s looks 20 and younger at their age. I can’t help but asked myself what’s the secret behind those older women who still preserves their beauty inside and out, the glow in their skin, the way they can carry themselves while walking, and the poise…truly amazing. Some has these thin lines, so called wrinkles but still, they look so glamorous. The secrets lies within one’s self, if you feel good about yourself, no matter how wasted you are, no matter how many facial lines you have, you will look good to anyone. One must learn to accept the fact I mean the truth that ageing is not optional, that’s where all of us are heading. Instead of fearing the days that we are getting older, we have to admire it; admire being old, admire ageing because it’s possible to look better with age. Yeah, it’s easy to look good when you are young, but looking good while ageing is another thing; it’s an accomplishment. Natural beauty is forever. It cannot be taken away from you. Just always smile and the world will seem to be on your side.

I looked into the mirror one fine day and was surprised seeing those thin lines around my eyes. I was checking myself if I was in a panicked mode and indeed I was. When I got the chance, I bought a set of anti-ageing moisturizes for daytime and night time use, facial wash, an eye cream…yeah. That’s how vain I was with myself. But reality check, putting and applying all the anti-ageing products doesn’t help at all. You may notice some changes that your skin gets tighter or glowing after using them for years. But still, I noticed, that some who aged, looks smarter and better and happier at their aged, never worrying if there are wrinkles on their faces, or if their skin started to shrink. They, however, are still up to date, on track and up to the beat for the sound of music. After all, as long as you can hear them laugh, getting old and having aged is not a big issue at all. They spend half of their lives being on each stage and they cherished each moment of their life, so why should we fear getting and being in older stage. Why should one need to maintain their younger look? All of us are heading into that dilemma, of getting old and of having wrinkles.

But that’s how life is all about.
