Since the dawn of time, people have been obsessed with finding the fountain of youth and trying to stay one step ahead of the aging game. Unfortunately, beauty is continually measured with how young and fresh a person looks.
The desire to be free of wrinkles, sagging skin, cellulite and the like has catapulted to another dimension. These days, women especially, are inundated with every TV commercial, magazine ad and Internet pop-up about how to age gracefully and avoid premature aging.
When you take a moment to analyze all the advertisements regarding beauty items and cosmetics, you’ll notice rather quickly that most of the models in these ads have the same persona…they look slim, youthful and have radiant hair and a flawless complexion.
It comes as no surprise that millions of women (and men) all over the globe are feeling the pressure of keeping up with unrealistic views of how they should look.
As a result, there has been a rapid spike in plastic surgery, Botox and facelift procedures, along with other products that relate to beauty and aging.
Approximately 1 out of every 3 women in the country admit to either having already had some kind of plastic surgery done in order to regain their youthful appearance, or plan on undergoing the knife sometime in the future.
This is a very disturbing statistic for advocates of the natural aging process.
Even those individuals who are highly against using artificial products for aging, still admit that looking young for as long as possible is something they try to achieve.
The main difference with these people is they tend to gravitate to choosing natural cosmetic procedures and products as opposed to artificial ones.
In most parts of the world, sales from products claiming to have anti-aging properties are very high. The current trends indicate that these sales will continue to increase as the years go by.
You need to comprehend that regardless of how much money you spend on products or procedures, you cannot completely avoid the aging process. It is much healthier to accept and love your body for what it is.
Embrace the fact you are celebrating another birthday and allow yourself to mature as gracefully as you can!
Don’t let beauty become an obsession!
