This book originated from my own personal frustrations in watching women my age change drastically close up in person in ways that did not necessarily make them look better. With massive lips protruding and smoothed edges across the forehead, I began to wonder why this trend was becoming so TRENDY? (Mirrors usually don’t lie.)
While the media, plastic surgeons and even your friendly medical spa will assure you face fillers help prevent aging, that couldn’t be further from reality.
My book Middle Age Beauty shines a brutal light on the hidden truths this plastic generation of ‘quick fixes’ with needles to the face that give women the temporary satisfaction of watching a wrinkle fade…did you read the most important word in that last sentence: Temporary!
Don’t believe the hype women & men. Don’t listen to your neighbor urging you to see their doctor for that ‘summer special treatment.’ What I ask of you first is to look inside your own personal space–yes your soul–and discover joyful moments, quiet meditative exercises and simple pleasures that will keep you healthy, happier and younger looking longer by just sticking the basics.
You don’t need to spend a lot money to look good. You just have apply some effort in who? YOU! Take time to look great, stay in shape, eat healthy and avoid those nasty needles that will have your face falling forward in a matter of a few years to where yes, you may need a face lift.
In the words of Fashion Icon Estee Lauder, “There are no ugly women, only laziness. There’s something wrong with a woman who doesn’t want to look pretty and attractive. Believe me, there’s no special age for beauty.”
Beauty is about accepting who you are and finding ways to enhance that natural God Given face. Don’t warp your beauty. Be Real and find ways to avoid that luncheon with the Botox Clique. It’s time to dig deeper in Celebrity driven society that has us believing that if we aren’t perfect, we may not be fabulous.
It’s time to look within and find out what brings us joy without needing a needle to mend the fix. I look forward to bringing new details about my book, Middle Age Beauty that deals with this important subject. Out in 2013, toward the end of the summer, I will begin sharing highlights of what I share with my readers and why you will be running the opposite direction when you see a needle. Well, there is one that is okay. Just one! And it’s not injected into your face. I will save this detail for later. For, now. I hope you wake up tomorrow and look in the mirror and say kind words to yourself. Be your own best friend. Say positive thoughts and believe in your best efforts. Life is yours to be as fabulous as you want. So why not try to be the best you and the natural you?
***I understand some have had a little Botox here and there. Please reconsider before going in again. Your health is more important than making a wrinkle fade temporarily.
