Hello everyone. This is a bit of an opinion piece based on some of the blogs I’ve been reading today about the….. shhhh…… controversial topic of women in my age group who are bucking up the courage to “go natural”….. now, before you wee perverts think a “Dance Nekky Party” is about to start, no, it’s not! At least not in my little space!
I mean, those of us in the fifty and over group who question ‘anti-aging” products. The opposite of aging is, let’s face it, pushing up daisies at the cemetery. You’re either aging, from the day you were born, or you’re dead. I’m alive! Why should I want to anti-age?
I do love Dove soap and always have. One of the few soaps that doesn’t make a girl’s delicate areas have a reaction. Works on one’s face, works on one’s unmentionables. Gotta love that.
Dove doesn’t have “anti age” products. I love them all the more for that. They use real women for their ads. I double love them for that. They’re one of the few companies that don’t make me feel like some kind of gross, unworthy monstrosity. With them, I’m just a girl. Just a fifty-two year old woman.
I love Dove. 🙂
I have wrinkles, my face is not flawlessly smooth or peaches and cream white like it used to be, and my hair looks a little more like Pepe LePew everyday with that striking gray streak zipping along the middle.
I LIKE Pepe LePew. I always did want to look like a star. 🙂
This isn’t a ‘change your life’ post. Sorry, if that’s what you were looking for today.
I’d love to hear from others. Do you fight age, embrace it, or sit in a chair and moan that there’s nothing you can do about any of it anyway?
All opinions welcome.
Oh, alright, due to thousands of tweets received during the writing of this post, I WILL host a “Dance Nekky Party”, beginning in ten minutes. Be there and be bare! 🙂
