One third of all injury reports in Australia are because of makeup

So, if I told you that one third of injury reports to the consumer watchdog were related to cosmetics, would you believe me? I mean surely there are a million other things that are sold that could be causing injury … Continue reading

Debate: Should Women Be Using Age Care Products or Age Gracefully?

Age is nothing but a number. Upon my Facebook there was a women who posted the most crass status. It was one of the status’s that make you want to delete your whole Facebook in frustration.

” Seeing all these sick old people around me ( in a hospital)  really makes me think that I never want to get old. Starting anti aging cream at 30 and hopefully I will still have young skin.”

So we have put the debate on whether or not women should be using age care products or just let time catch up and age gracefully.

Emily will be on the Against Side that we should age with grace.

While Hollie will be on the For Side that women should be using age care surgery.

Emily:  THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH.

Meryl Streep

There is a surplus of anti age care products like creams, serums, gels and powders that are all claiming to be this fountain of youth to restore your skin back to its original beauty but by using expensive brands, scientific explanations and pictures of women who aren’t old to advertise it. It is sucking us in.

But the internal aging process is something that happens naturally. Wrinkles, thinning, sagging and dryness are all part of this process. As your skin ages, it doesn’t replace itself as quickly.

Now we all know that Wrinkles occur because as we age, we gradually stop producing collagen,(the protein that keeps skin firm).Both sun exposure and smoking accelerate the loss of collagen, so the two best things you can do for your skin are to keep it covered with sunscreen and away from cigarettes.

Even at what age they start largely depends on your genes — if your mother started getting wrinkles in her 30s, it’s likely that you will, too.

Funny enough my grandmother got grey hair at 18 years of age. Her daughter was blessed when she turned eighteen the exact same thing happened. All you really need is a cleanser, a moisturizer and a sunscreen.

Hollie: The Effects Of The Media Screen Shot 2014 10 22 at 9.04.43 am 380x571 Why is the world losing its mind about Renee Zellwegers face?

The entire universe is talking about Renee Zellweger’s face. And no, we are not exaggerating in the least: The. Entire. Universe.

Renee Zellweger is 46-years-old. She is a woman who is getting older in a profession that’s entirely consumed with appearance and hotness. With image and ageing. If she had attended the Elle Women In Hollywood Awards in LA with grey roots and crows’ feet, we would be having a very different conversation and people would be talking about it a lot more. But she attended the Awards with a smooth forehead, a questionable tan, and possibly puffier cheeks.

Yes, Renee looks different. Definitely different. But shocking? No.

Given all of this, why are we in the least bit surprised that a beautiful woman in her 40’s has succumbed to the pressure to alter her face to look more youthful than she is? We can write that off as some sort of character flaw and a tragic weakness on her part, or we can recognize that it’s Hollywood’s obsession with youth and beauty – and therefore our own obsession with youth and beauty – that leads women to consent to needles full of chemicals being jabbed into their faces, and to create an enormous medical industrial complex of doctors, happy to slice into their skin with scalpels.
