I went to the dermatologist last week. I had a couple of spots that I was concerned about and wanted to have checked. The spots were fine….he said that they are “common with age.” AGE!!!! And then he told me that I had “quite a bit of sun damage” from when I was “younger.” He also said that I don’t need to come back if or until I have another concern, but that I will need his “services in the future due to the sun damage.” Ummm… this conversation in NO WAY boosted my self confidence regarding my appearance. Who knew my freckles were such a problem? So, I am on a hunt for some fade cream. I remember as a kid seeing ads for Porcelana and Esoterica to “fade liver and age spots” Now, when I want the stuff I can’t find it anywhere. Work with me people!! I need to correct the sins of my past. Or at least fade them out and make it look like they don’t exist.
And, according to my current issue of Redbook, I also need to work on “youth-ifying” my cleavage. Apparently, many women take care of the skin on their face but ignore their neck and cleavage which results in a young-ish looking face but old lady looking cleavage. Which, according to Redbook, is a BIG issue!!!
I also found out on Pinterest this week that it is a good thing that I cannot stand the jeans from Old Navy because they are now classified as “mom” jeans. However, since I am cheap and unwilling to pay $75+ for a pair of jeans, I am never going to have “cool” jeans. It’s sad for me.
Between my age spots, old looking cleavage, and mom butt, I think I may need to become home bound—-just to spare the public from looking at me.
If you see me and you become blinded or turn to stone, please forgive me.
