    Worried About Wrinkles?

    Henry S Lodge, MD posted:
    For many people, one of the primary concerns about aging is how it's going to affect their skin and their appearance. As each new line or wrinkle appears, they feel less attractive and more critical of their changing reflection in the mirror.

    But here's some good news: Beauty really is more than skin-deep. Lots of research shows that we care primarily about facial expressions, mobility, and the physical expression of mood and emotion, more than about the static appearance of our bodies. What this means is that if you are lively, energetic, and have a youthful spirit, nobody will really notice your skin. They will be attracted to the twinkle in your eye.

    Bottom line: No one is losing sleep over your wrinkles -- you shouldn't either. So, instead of getting tied up in knots about a wrinkle here or there, maybe you should focus on the activities and people that keep that twinkle in your eye.
