Youth Envy – Aging is a Law of the Universe

Standard

Why do so many ads promote being or staying young? Youthful appearance, energy, styles of dress, music, reading material, you name it? Why have cosmetic surgeries for face lifts, eye lifts, chin lifts increased through the last couple of decades?  Some surgeries have been so extreme as to make the patient nearly unrecognizable afterward.  Have you ever counted the numbers of ‘age-defying’ creams, lotions, gells, wrinkle creams, wrinkle covering cosmetics? How about hair color – it MUST cover the gray, right? And for men, covering the gray makes you appear capable instead of over-the-hill. But aging is an inevitable part of life; so why do we fight it so?

Craig Ferguson may have hit the nail on the head. See what you think?
