Our obsession on aging has led some to go under surgery just to look younger.
I dare say that there's nothing wrong to wish for a more youthful appearance but not to the point of cutting your skin in half and end more messed up in the process.
Perhaps Hollywood poses the most number of people who go into almost-life threatening measures to look 20 to 30 years younger. In the most ironic situations, the media seems to glorify those who were able to beat aging and promote the surgeries which the celebrities went under.
The 50's is a point in life that most people tend to avoid as much as possible and try not to think about. But being in your 50's actually gives you more freedom. At this stage of your life, you have made milestones on your job, you have raised stable adults, and you are old enough to be wise and yet still young not to use canes when walking.
If you have the bucks to spend and you have been completely briefed on the repercussions of lying on the operating table to remove the lines and look like you've just completed college, then it's your decision. But with all the stories of surgeries going wrong and resulting to death, it might be worthy to look at ways on how to look like you haven't aged in ages.
1. Enroll in body and mind-enhancing exercises
Signing up for yoga, pilates and all those exercises that clear the mind and concentrate on easing your inner self. The main exercises focus on breathing freely and making sure that you know how to focus on one thing and one thing only. Multitasking has become one of our priorities as to accomplish more tasks once. This is not bad but tends to take away the moment of appreciating that beauty of one situation and concentrate on the stress of the millions of things that we have to do.
2. Pamper yourself on a luxury spa vacation
Most of our lines are caused by stress. Spas has evolved from being just a facility with rooms for backrubs to a place for wellness treatments as well as guidance on everything from nutrition to nurturing ourselves. Spots for luxury spas are booming like pimples on an oily skin and therefore there are a lot of choices and no excuse for you to make a reservation.
3. Appreciate and flaunt what you have
It might be easier said than done but it is actually simple to do. Take time to pause and look around you. At the tender age of 50, you're still alive with the average lifespan is declining. You still have a roof above your head and you still woke and read this post. All of us have problems to deal with so there's no reason to feel worst for ourselves.
4. Compare yourself with others
This may sound narcissistic but it works when viewed in an objective way. Take time to look at your yearbooks and compare yourself with someone there whom you still know up to know and see what edge you have over them. Knowing that someone is going through the same experience you have and yet looks kind of worst and help them in any way you can. Now, there's the redeeming value.
5. Do something spontaneous and safely outrageous
Doing something unplanned and yet most enjoyable is a way to feel good, and when you feel good, you look good. Operative word here is doing something that is SAFELY outrageous. Consider your health first. If you have diabetes and you want to go on a chocolate fest, then do some other thing.
6. Never underestimate the power of makeup
Putting on a little bit of blush or a concealer won't hurt and will definitely make you glamorously young. Go for the makeup that are chemically good for your skin. If the Ambush makeover team is on your neighborhood, then make yourself noticeable in the streets.
The key to looking like you just drank from the fountain of youth is to feel good about yourself. Sure, there are things that you did 20 years ago that you can't do now. But then again, there are things that you can do now that you weren't able to do back then. I am not against surgical enhancements, but I also see no harm in going the natural way.
I daresay that there's nothing wrong to wish for a more youthful appearance but not to the point of cutting your skin in half and end more messed up in the process.
