I too am surprised that a woman has to worry about aging at 40, and all the crap that we women are sort of expected to do just to please our warped society. I’m 72, I feel sorry for the younger generation, devoting hours and money every day solely for their appearance, instead of just living. The pressure to keep up is “aging”...........
I thought the title was so funny I am 75 and looked at the article only to find it was very young woman of 40 .
Its all to live for yet , you must enjoy your youth
And, if you have the money, go twice a year to a dermatologist ;-))
So many smokers should quit for the reasons given alone. I know it's hard, but it would be worth it. Never smoked because I can't stand the smell.
Personally, I have never understood the desire to look younger than young. It can be seen and it makes a person look like a fool, IMHO. Look your age.
I appreciate your post and am planning on passing it on to my younger daughters. However, I am amazed that you did not include getting a decent amount of sleep. Was this an oversight?
An optimist is a person who sees a green light everywhere, while the pessimist sees only the red stoplight. The truly wise person is colorblind. - Albert Schweitzer ~ 1/20/18
GOOD IDEA. I MUST DRINK MORE WATER.
LeeAnn, now that this article is 10 years old, you should update, now that you will turn 50 this year!
Followed most of these my entire adult life.
