Face it, most of us run to the salon at the sight of a grey hair, get it covered with a concoction of coloured chemicals and come home happy. Is that all we would consider doing to keep looking young for as long as possible?
Botox injections, face lifts, eye lid surgery, derma fillers, anti wrinkle treatments, breast lifts, tummy tucks and more procedures are offered by plastic surgeons for anyone who wants to look younger than what they really are.
Would you consider any of these surgical or non surgical procedures?
Yes, I sure do run to the salon to cover those awful greys! But as for all the rest of it, I'll give it a miss. I don't like the idea of being injected with a bunch of toxic chemicals to help me look younger. I think that if you can keep as healthy as possible with a good diet, regular exercise and plenty of water and aviod excessive sun and alcohol, you should be pretty well preserved anyway, so that's my plan.
I would never consider surgery of any kind. While I want to look good, I am not fussed to even bother with make-up, so you can imagine how unlikely it is that I would consider any form of surgery. I wouldn't waste my money on trying to make people think I look beautiful. And why put yourself through unnecessary pain?
I can't see myself going in for expensive, non-essential surgery, but I am still pretty young so I suppose I can't say for certain I would never want it. I hope not. I certainly don't run to the salon to cover grey. I think grey hair looks pretty cool. I only have a few so far and I earned them so I won't be covering them up. I hear some women say dyeing their hair helps keep them from being discriminated against in the workplace where young people might be favoured over older candidates, so I understand them doing that, and I suppose some people get cosmetic surgery for the same reason.
I do do some basic things to keep looking younger like not smoking (well I suppose that's not doing something rather than doing something but you know what I mean) and keeping out of the sun/wearing sunscreen, a hat and sunglasses.
If cash wasn't an issue, then yes I'd probably consider some 'minor' procedures like a mini face-lift or some liposuction. Thankfully I (hopefully!) have a couple of decades before I have to decide. They might have come up with something amazing by then!
