*I've not felt anyone, young OR old, in quite some time, so the title is somewhat of a moot point (or, as any "Friends" lovers might get, a "moo point" - "it's like a cow's opinion - it doesn't matter - it's MOO", hahaha) but I wanted to get your attention. Anyhoo . . .
So I've been 30 now for over four whole months.
I think it's only just starting to sink in now.
The thing is, I don't FEEL any older. I KNOW it's just a number. It's just the fact that the number occasionally panic me.
I don't think I LOOK any older either. In fact, I have been ID'd SO MUCH MORE in the past four months than I have been in five years. It's an inconvenience having to carry my passport around everywhere with me (and have idiots who can't actually seem to find the PHOTO in my passport - don't even get me STARTED on that) but it makes me happy at the same time. It's reassurance - I DON'T LOOK MY AGE.
(It could ALSO have something to do with the fact that my turning 30 apparently coincided with a law that holds the PERSON who served an underager alcohol responsible rather than the company they work for, but let's not examine that further. It's cos I look young, 'kay???)
Anyways, tonight I gave into an urge that has been plaguing me for a while . . .
. . . and bought some anti-ageing night cream.
It's something I was somewhat reluctant to do since I'm still using CLEARASIL PRODUCTS to keep the slightly dodgy skin at bay (the irony being that I only developed this crappy skin when I was about 26!). Plus any wrinkles I have have been there since I was young. My forehead has had lines on it since I was pretty much starting HIGH SCHOOL, for fuck's sake!
But while you are still using MEDICATED skin products, you shouldn't want to use ANTI-AGEING products too, surely?
But even though I am pretty sure I look young, I also believe that prevention is better than cure. So I guess I will have to start this rather contradictory skin routine and hope it keeps me looking as young as I feel.
Are you paranoid about ageing? Do you use anti-ageing products?
