Age is an issue of mind over matter. If you don't mind, it doesn't matter.
The fetish with 'outer beauty' has taken humongous proportions and it is no wonder that corporate chieftains have time and again exploited this much to their bank account's delight. Women more than men age faster but resorting to cosmetics is an unhealthy way of looking young.Besides, you really can do nothing at the genetics factor involved. However, a lot can be done to improve the physical & mental health naturally. For starters adopt a healthy lifestyle. Eat healthy, drink loads of water and incorporate physical exercises like walking or swimming . Keep your mind forever young by indulging in hobbies that stimulate you. And yes smile a lot, be cheerful.
On a relevant note, I flinch whenever I see the latest advertisement of alpenlibe with Kajol. The little one addresses her as 'Didi' (sister) while requesting her for helping him in ringing the bell. Sister--- ? Really -- ? Now why can't we take the tag of getting older in stride.
Embrace growing up gracefully and flaunt your age with pride
