Anti Aging

A list of things I swore I would never use, because I was going to “age gracefully” and “embrace my natural body” and “be who nature intended me to be,” but which I now use on a regular basis:

Hair Colour

Under Eye Concealer

Whitening Toothpaste

Oil of Olay products (remember how OLD the ladies used to seem in Oil of Olay commercials, when you were a kid?)

Jowl-concealing neck scarves

Facial Masks

Can a face lift and tummy tuck be far behind?

  1. I remember (with a giant flinch every time) how I told my mom and her friend that I was never going to wear foundation—that I didn’t see the need for it. I was probably 18 at the time. I still don’t wear it, but I’m beginning to understand their facial expressions when I said it.

  2. I use all those things except undereye concealer, but that’s because I’ve become a BB cream addict. I even use Olay’s “Radiance” cleanser which is old lady if there ever was such a thing.

  3. I tell my kids (half) jokingly that we can only start saving for university AFTER mommy puts away enough for her boob lift and jowl tuck. I’m also a fan of Spanx – something I had previously relegated to the category of “only for the truly desperate” I also spend way too much time looking at makeup tutorials on Pinterest – highlights and shading are my new best friends.

  4. I honestly can’t remember whether I said I’d never use that stuff or not, but I don’t really care – young people shouldn’t really get to have a vote on it anyway. Does whitening toothpaste actually work???
