Definitely no surgery or injections. That part will be graceful (or not!!!) but still need the hair color. I just can't do the gray thing!
My friend's SIL has been doing plastic surgery for years. It is painful to look at her and she's the nicest person ever, just extremely vain. Haven't seen her in several years but gravity will kick in and I doubt there's a surgeon that would ever do anything else, at least I hope not!

If the journey was easy I wouldn't appreciate the benefits I reap.

Old? I'm getting younger every year. Certainly 10 years younger than I was 4 years ago, with a load of weight off, more energy, asthma much better. If I keep this up I'll be 20 by the time I'm 80!!

Be aware that those fishing line type of facelifts wear out & when they fail the patient looks deformed.

Nothing worse than seeing a celebrity afraid of aging with that tight old face, coloured hair and absolutely no expression! I have embraced my beautiful white hair and have stopped colouring it - I get a ton of complements on it and I love that I don't have to spend the time and money to maintain a colour, and I am not putting chemicals on my hair nor into the water. I see myself in the mirror and I love what I see. I don't wear make-up, I do try and look after my skin and I think I look great. And hey, the alternate to aging is not being here and I'd rather be aging gracefully and embracing the wisdom of my years (not always so much wisdom - lol - sometimes I even learn a few new tricks from those youngsters in my life!). Here's to growing old gracefully, brilliantly, and dignified!

Grow old gracefully. However, I'm going to be mistaken for a Pelican one of these days with this swinging chin-neck of mine.
I consider facial creams and a bit of hair color to be more like make-up. It's not surgical.

I love Phyllis Diller. She's always been one of all time favorite comediennes. Well, she never hid the fact that she had cosmetic surgery. She was always open AND she knew when to stop. She did just enough to enhance her looks when she was past 60. She didn't try to look 15 or 20 years younger.

And that's the problem, with today's facelifts. They don't look natural. Which is why you won't be seeing me get a facelift. I'd rather grow old gracefully OR at least find Phyllis Diller's cosmetic surgeon. LOL !!

Grow old "gracefully or ungracefully", as humans are intended to do, except if you are appearing in "People" magazine or a news anchor. Can't afford anything else, lol.

I don't think that there is anything terrible about using anti aging skin care. You can still grow old gracefully and use Oil of Olay.

I'm struggling with this right now. I'm 25 and haven't had kids yet but put crazy colours in my hair for fun, am just starting to dip my toe into the realm of anti-aging skin care products, and my mother and grandmother went white in their 30s. I know I only have a few 'young' years left and don't want to bring on old age prematurely by not addressing skincare, stress and the like. I haven't decided on a plan yet.

I still think I will grow old gracefully.

As for dyeing my hair. I still don't know. If I had to get it done at the salon, it would be really expensive. And I still won't buy grocery store color. A couple years ago I fried my hair with grocery store color. It wasn't pretty.

36 and just started going gray...well white actually. Have just a few at my temples and that doesnt work for me. lol I hope I age well enough to not feel like I need "help". But for the last few years I've wanted a breast reduction, mostly because I feel my massive breasts make the rest of me look bigger than I am. And if I was going to get them reduced, then I'd want them lefted back up to where they should be. ;)

In my opinion, its about doing whatever makes you comfortable in your skin.. I have some gray and prefer to use a ammonia free color since it is not as drying as those containing ammonia. using a shade close to my natural color. I also use a plant based moistureizer on my face. If I would consider a face lift or a mini lift, it would be to make myself look less tired looking/better, and not to look years younger which is impossible to achieve. But for now, plain simple me.


Its not exercise, its going outside to play!

Phyllis Diller is famous for talking about the different cosmetic surgery procedures she'd had over the years. But, she knew when to stop. She didn't end up with that face in a wind tunnel look. She did age gracefully even with the extra bit of work. One of the many different reasons why I always liked her. She was funny and honest.

The most drastic thing that I'll do is color my hair, but I don't want to look plastic and fake. I want to be able to smile and see my face move and I'm proud of my age and every wrinkle is from a path in my life and even though sometimes the path is difficult I wouldn't want to erase them they make me who I am.

Starting to like the new me!

A bit of both... I color my hair since I'm no ready for streaky grey (I'm approaching my 63d birthday and have some grey. Plastic surgery and botox don't appeal but I'd consider some tucks to get rid of excess flesh as the fat is going away. I wear make up,but don't worry much about the lines and imperfections... most of them are laugh lines, anyhow!

I'm grateful to be healthy!

I think if it makes me happy...yeah I would have PS. That said, I don't want to look like I'm in my twenties, I just don't want to scare the grandkids. I think there are limits. I color my hair, workout, eat right and would even consider a nip and tuck if I felt it would be helpful.
I have a friend that had a facelift but doesn't workout. She looks pretty rough. No matter how much surgery you have you still have to take care of yourself.
