Do you have the Magic Formula that I Need?

I don't know about all of you, but this aging thing is really giving me a headache!

OK... my 40 year class reunion is just around the corner, so you can understand why I would really like to get these wrinkles under control.

There are always new products out on the market that promise to correct any issue that one might have in regards to wrinkles, crows feet, blemishes, aging spots and some products even claim to plump up areas that need a little lift.

Right now, in my bathroom I have.......Pevonia Power Repair, Pevonia Power Repair lotion hydratante, Lancome Genifique Eye, Lancome Absolue Eye,
Regenerating Serum, Absolue Replinishing Cream,  Toleriane Soothing Protective, Intensive Rehydrating Skincare, Clinque Dramatically difference lotion, and these are just to name a few..........

I am looking for the magic formula and I need your help...

Tell me what you use and what it is that you do to hide or reduce the signs of aging.  Do you drink several glasses of water each day?  Do you exercise two or three times a week?  Is it the sunscreen you use that helps in the aging process?

Ok, My dear Blogging Friends....I know the secret is out there and I have two and a half months to do a miracle job here. 

Let me know what it is that you think works the Best!!

I'm Counting on You!!

Shug Sez....

We all need a little laughter in our day.....
Enjoy your Blessings!

Hi Shug, I am just letting the aging process just happen... For me, it's all about losing weight... I'll take the wrinkles --if I can just keep the weight under control... Oh Well--my lifelong problems!!!!

Good Luck... My advice: just be YOU... Once you are there at the reunion, you'll see lots of OLD people... ha ha

Hemorrhoid cream, models carry it in their bags and it's their secret weapon. Old age ain't for sissies, as Bette Davis said. I've been finding that out in spades. Good luck and you don't have to worry, from looking at your picture, I don't see a wrinkle anywhere and really can't believe you are going to your 40th reunion. You LOOK 40 to me. Hope you have fun!! Don't let the stressing ruin a magic monent and your fun. Besides, I find that there are always people there who look much worse than me, and I hang with them!

Hi Shug, I wish I had some secret weapon against wrinkles, etc. to share with you, but I don't. I am to the point where I feel like Betsy. Just let it happen. From what I can see in your photos, you look great! I'm a bit older than you and was used to hearing how much younger I looked than I actually was. Haven't heard that in a while and, yes, it's hard to accept that older woman I now see staring me back in the mirror. I want to say "who are you?" :D She seems to follow me around everywhere I go! Take care, Cheryl

Hi Shug!

You are beautiful just the way you are! I think we tend to picture those we graduated high school with - as 18 years olds! They have also aged, some better than others, but they have all aged. There are several people I went to high school with, that live near me and go to the same church with me. I really appreciate them for who they are today - I can't even remember what they looked like 40 years ago! I just have to believe that all of those little wrinkles and lines have a story, and define who we are . . . today. You're gorgeous, just be yourself and they can't help but love you!!

Girl, it sure sounds like ya got it all covered! Heehehehe!!!

It's as much what ya put on the inside as the outside.

God bless ya and have a marvelous Monday sweetie!!!

I agree with the others., be yourself. We all age, it's part of God's plan. Those wrinkles and age spots are all a part of our character-building to another part of us. Recently I looked in the mirror to wonder, when did I get old. Then I thought of the many times I have been complimented by some of my kids friends thinking I'm a sister, and not their mother. A pretty hefty compliment that by-passes any age spot. I do drink tons of water and try to keep fit for my heart, but, God will determine who I really am. Aging is wonderful. Just tell everyone, "please don't be jealous, but I can still fit into the same earrings I wore in high school." You will have a wonderful reunion. I do believe Maxine said that.

Well, there is your Magic Formula!! Underwritten by six wise bloggers before me!! Just be yourself and thank God for the beauty of spirit He has worked on the inside, even while the outside has given in a little to gravity and some places have lost elasticity. If you focus with joy and sparkle towards the others, they will only remember how good you made them feel, and that is beautiful! Besides, you look great!

OOO, Shug, I went to my 50th class reunion in 2006...we are planning our 55th this summer. Like you, I sure was looking for something to slather on my olden face,puffy eyes, hangy-down beneath my chin that would turn back the years. DIDN'T HAPPEN...nothing short of the knife will do too much for us, I'm afraid. And, I sure as heck will NEVER do that.
Like someone above said, when I got to the reunion, I never saw so many OLD people in my entire life. I lightened up, then, realizing we ALL age. I guess the best thing is to age gracefully and be happy.
You are such a beautiful just have the time of your life at your reunion. Get some spiffy new clothes...that always does wonders for me.:))
