Anti – aging serums, anti – aging facial creams, anti – aging lotions, anti – aging facial masks… The list is very long! On the market there are a lot of anti – aging products and products that improve the skin’s elasticity. If we are able to find so many anti – aging products, it means that those products are demanded and used a lot by women (and also by men).
The process of aging is a natural and normal process.
Today, the toxins, the pollution, the cigarettes, the UV rays and the alcohol can cause premature aging.
The medicine develops and goes further, but some natural processes are accelerated now.
Why are we always under pressure that we should look younger and that we should be perfect, when the aging process is 100% natural?
The magazines are full of perfect persons who are thin and have the perfect face symmetry. The celebrities use Botox and make corrections on the face and on the body. They are the ultimate trendsetters. The rare celebrities who don’t use Botox and who don’t make corrections, are usually lucky, as they have good genes.
The other ‘common people’ want to be perfect just like the celebrities. This is why the demand of the anti – aging products is so high.
The society puts us under a big pressure. It’s an unwritten rule to be perfect.
Luckily, there are people who don’t want to correct their face nor their body. They don’t want to see a plastic surgeon or to use any anti – aging products.
It’s not so bad to correct what we think is not right with our look. But, we should ignore the pressure that the society puts on us, that we must be perfect. The look is important to leave a good first impression, but, the look is actually not that important after all. What is the most important, is our behavior and what we carry within ourselves.
As Audrey Hepburn once said: ‘To have beautiful lips, say ... beautiful things. To have beautiful eyes, look at people and see the good in them. The beauty of a woman is not in the clothes she wears, the ... The beauty of a woman is seen in her eyes, because that is the doorway to her ... True beauty in a woman is reflected in her soul.’
And her most important expression: ‘The beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows.’.
