I am so curious of why so many of us (women) are so conscious of having wrinkles. We already know that it is part of our natural aging process. But why still we want to get rid of wrinkles? I tried to interview some of my girl friends and female neighbors about this matter and gave me these three common answers:
Reason 1: “I don’t want people seeing me getting old!”
We already accept the fact that we are growing old. But the fact of having these physical changes, which other people could also observe is the very thing that we can’t afford to face. Having people around noticing our skin’s sagging and our wrinkles forming worry us too much. It would also give them the impression that we are undergoing too much stress in life. That’s why we want to get rid of wrinkles to get rid of these negative observations from other people.
Reason 2: “It gives me more confidence.”
Less wrinkles, more confidence is what they usually say. It feels good when somebody tells us “you look younger than your age.” Having confidence on ourselves gives a lot of positive results. It gives us positive mindset about everything. Positive mind gives positive results.
Reason 3: “It’s what everyone is doing.”
Skin care is now part of this generation’s trend. It is part of everyone’s fashion. There are so many commercials with regards to this concern; so many brands to choose from. Seeing many people doing this “fashion” drives our curiosity and the need for it follows and so on.
We have our own reasons but it could all be summed up into this – SELF IMPROVEMENT. We want to improve ourselves also for our good. Improving ourselves help us a lot in so many ways more importantly in developing a positive outlook in our lives. Let’s get rid of wrinkles and get rid of negative vibes as well.
