So 60 is the new 40, right? And what does that mean to all of us naturally beautiful and healthy senior women? What does “act your age” mean in today’s world?
We used to be able to look at a person and tell from the way they dressed or wore their hair or their makeup if they were 20 or 30 or 60 or 80. Now it’s pretty hard to tell. And do we really want to stereotype ourselves at first glance? Not according to the cosmetic surgery industry which is making a fortune on fillers and Botox and tucks and lifts.
I believe you should take care of your looks and preserve your natural beauty by eating right, exercising and drinking plenty of water. You’ve got a lot of leeway after that though. But certain things should be forgotten if you’re past a certain age (you decide what that is, not me!) -
Granny pants or muffin tops
Back fat and saggy breasts or uniboobs
Too much skin exposed or too much cleavage hanging out
Too much bling-y jewelry, too much jewelry of any kind
Big fur coats and great big hair
Too much perfume or too much lipstick
Too high jeans or too low-rise jeans (see above for muffin tops!)
Jeans that are too tight or skirts that are too short
Matchy-matchy clothes or clothes from Forever 21 when you’re forever 65
Long red nails or chipped and discolored nails
Roots showing or ashy looking gray hair
Age spots on your hand (I once had a guy tell me my face looked 30, but my hands looked 60!!!)
Yellow or grey teeth
Foundation that looks too thick and stops at your neck
Lips that are too thin or lips that are too plumped
Lipstick bleeding into fine lines and lipstick on your teeth
Too much eyeliner or too little eyelashes
Glittery eye shadow or no eye makeup
Looking like you tried too hard or looking like you didn’t try at all.
Come on ladies, you are gorgeous – look that way, own your power, and act your age – Remember 60 is the new 40!
