Rewind the clock without surgery!?
I know what you do when you’re alone.
You study yourself in that 50X mag mirror and no, it does nothing for you. You squeeze your brows together to see what those wrinkles will look like down the road… and the future looks grim.
We have memorized our wrinkles, they’re a map of every happy/sad/infuriating/exciting/ugh…. every emotion we’ve ever experienced. I used to say things like “I think laugh lines are evidence of a life well lived”. Well screw that. Remember that time you had to cut yourself out of your bridesmaid dress because the zipper got stuck in your spanx?? Yeah. I remember. But I don’t need the memory outlined on my face.
I know this high mag mirror can be a tough pill to swallow. I have run half marathons, I have lived at the gym, I have tried the freaking apple cider vinegar diet. There isn’t a darn thing you can do to turn back the clock….Or is there?
Well, you can use those “instant wrinkle erasers” you see on infomercials. That’s great if you don’t mind applying what is basically Elmer’s glue to your face until it dries (giving the appearance of tight skin) but eventually flakes off in a cakey mess on the floor. It is a temporary solution with no long-term benefit and plenty short-term mess. You can try make up and cover ups but again, a temporary fix (and one that will become less reliable with time).
However, there is a whole world of non-surgical alternatives to help you to look the way you feel. That’s why I’m here… to give you the low down on the secret world of cosmetic services. I am a physician and a “30-something” year old female entering a new phase of life. A phase where looking in high mag mirrors show me more than I want to see. I know the world of injectables can be a bit scary and mysterious, so I hope I can demystify things for you as we go along. Check out my other posts for information about different products out there!
