I long ago decided that as I get older, I am going to accept and embrace my wrinkles.
The only thing that will make someone look 25 again, is a time machine, and so far, they haven't invented that.
I don't wear any make-up, none, zero, nada.
No fillers or face lift for me.
No Botox or Juvaderm either.
It is so freeing.
Good for you... I guess?

It's a woman's choice. I am 69 and I use moisturizer and then apply tinted moisturizer, a light touch of blush and lipstick. Sometimes I will wear dark brown mascara depending on my mood. One thing I won't use is Retin A. I have heard stories on this forum about women using it and getting very dry skin. Dry skin causes wrinkles so you are defeating the purpose. I was recently using a new moisturizer at night and there was some ingredient that did not agree with me and was drying my skin -- out it went. I used some oil on my face and in one day the dryness was gone.

I love makeup and will probably always wear it. It "dims" a few problems, and gives my small features (in a rather large face) definition. Plus, I just enjoy applying it! At 64, I don't think it makes me look younger...just better. Most days it's foundation, blush, eyeliner, mascara & sheer lip color.
I'm not a big skincare user...cleanse, moisturize, exfoliate about once a week with a gentle scrub. That's it!

I use good skincare. I do not purchase everything or on an impulse. I use a good cleanser, serum, moisturizer, and retinol product....I wear makeup thoguhout the week at work, however on the weekends I do go makeup free, with just lip gloss.
I love the feeling of having nothing on my skin. Now I will wear a little makeup if we are going somewhere special(wedding, party, etc.) but otherwise makeup free. I don't judge either. I work with a woman who is very judgemental, would never go to her mailbox without a full face of makeup on, and her hair just so, etc.....
She can't believe that I would go makeup free while out shopping, she always says what if you run into someone? Well obviously I run into lots of people, but most people I know aren't judgemental and could care less if I have makeup on or not....
To each their own.....Everyone has their own comfort level and should do as they wish and what makes them feel good......

I agree with accepting what you cannot change. But I don't agree with giving up on the things you still can.
I accept that my body is no longer 19. But that doesn't mean I don't exercise and watch what I eat now that my metabolism is older and slower. I wouldn't be happy if I just threw in the towel and said, "Well hell, I guess I'll gain weight and lose muscle tone over time. Might as well just sit here."
Adapting to change is good, and logical.

Is this like the color/don't color conversation? Do what you want but to me not doing all the little things you did when younger is just "giving up." I like makeup, skincare, hair color, lipstick, etc. I don't especially want to scare small children when I go out. Don't equate not using makeup with "embracing" your age because to me it's not. They will have to pry foundation, hair color and lipstick out of my cold dead hands.
