Choice – for Mature Age-defying Women
Being a mature woman in 2014 is pretty good.
Research and technology have been kind to us baby boomers.
Unlike our grandmothers.
“As for getting by without a wrinkle control light wand and a choice of about 17,569 shampoos”
Those dears didn’t have the benefits of laser resurfacing, dermal fillers, botox, eyelash extensions, teeth implants, laser hair removal, dermal peels, eyebrow tinting, microdermabrasion or oxygen facials.
That’s a lot of really good stuff to live without.
And that is just naming a few of the “aids” available now to keep us looking good which in turn makes us feel good.
You might well wonder how our grannies managed to go out the front door each day when all they had to put on their face was Oil of Ulay.
Have you ever thought how they coped without serums, anti-oxidants, exfoliates, body scrubs, foot lotions and cellulite creams?
Do you shudder to think?
What an ignorant state the old poor souls lived in when they knew nothing about free radicals, had no idea what glycolic, peptides or hyaluronic meant, and the only sunscreen they used was Johnson’s Baby Oil.
As for getting by without a wrinkle control light wand and a choice of about 17,569 shampoos … well, best we don’t talk about that.
Take a look around your bathroom … go on … see if you can count the number of products on the bench all designed to keep you soft and smooth and lump and wrinkle free.
It’s an embarrassing amount isn’t it?
Mmmm … maybe we should envy the easy maintenance routines of our grandmothers when choice was not an option and a jar of Ponds cold cream did the lot.
