Wrinkles ad character to your outward personna. They show not only where you have been but where you may be willing to go. I think the most charming part of growing old gracefully is being able to see the progression of a life and character on a face, not only from genetics but from lifestyle. Like reading an antique map to hidden treasure, the character analysis present in the lines of a face gives clues to motivations, loves, sadness, challenges, and happiness. Wrinkles and laugh lines are what make people interesting—and I am looking forward to having them.
Beauty changes over time. I envy and admire the elderly I meet, and have noticed the more interesting the facial lines the more interesting their stories! It is my hope to have enough wonderful life experiences on the inside to make me one of these unique treasures on the outside, as well! Though concerns for skin care related to sun damage is real, and caring for you skin by avoiding toxins and improper diet is prudent, beyond that one’s only real responsibility is to grow old gracefully. To do so is the true hallmark of beauty, and each line another milestone along the course of a full life. 8 years ago
