It strikes me funny when aging celebrities write a book that says, "Staying young and fit after 40."What they seem to leave out is what it costs them each month to look young and fit. The average women does not have $18,000 a month to spend on Botox as Angela Jolieor $900 a week to fork out on a personal trainer as Jennifer Aniston
Lets face it, celebrities such as, Christly Brinkley, Rachel Welch, and other aging beauties make their living on their looks. The cosmetic industry makes billions using them to sell their products. We live in a country that frowns on aging gracefully. Men and women are obsessed with looking youthful where I live. At my gym I see many women in their 60’s doing ballet, yoga, weight training and Zumba, they definitely are in good shape, but they do not look as young as Christly Brinkley, they look like healthy and fit 60 year young women.
Celebrities may have physical beauty, but I tend to look for inner beauty in people. Appearance is important to us, myself included, but it is also important to be kind, patient, joyful and loving. When I am around joyful people I see the inner beauty that far out weights the outer beauty.
As a society we need to, "Stop comparing ourselves to celebrities. Eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, stay hydrated, exercise daily, get plenty of rest, and moisturize, and you will look and feel great!"Very few individuals will look taut and youthful after 50 or 60 without cosmetic or plastic surgery, but we can look and feel great by taking care of ourselves. I refuse to go in debt paying for:personal trainers, liposuction, laser peels, dietary prepared foods, miracle creams, and cosmetic surgery
So that I can look twenty again. Don’t be fooled by the promises of the cosmetic industry that if you use their products you will look as good as Jennifer Aniston or Christly Brinkley. Compare a regular 50 to 60 year young woman who hasn’t had any cosmetic or plastic surgery, and if they look great; find out what they are doing.
Live your life, do something kind for someone, and surround yourself with cheerful individuals who have a positive outlook.
