I think we are a generation struggling to find pride. We don’t wear it on our faces enough.
I just spoke to a plastic surgeon who, with pride, told me that his clientele is getting younger and younger because he’s now convinced he can keep them from ever having wrinkles. Okay. So what is that? An authority?
Now I think there are great plastic surgeons out there. I think there are great dermatologists who are really looking to prolong the health of women’s skin. That is a great approach. We have to do that. We have to stay out of the sun. There are lots of products we can use. There are cosmetics that make women’s skin actually look better.
But you have a group of authorities both in the media and in the medical world promoting the anti-aging movement. Think about that – anti-aging is anti-being 50. Anti-being 60. I don’t think that’s a great expression. And yet we take it for granted because we see it all the time.
