In today’s Sunday Times Nancy Dell’Olio talks about how as she approaches 50 she looks 30, and intends to stay that way until she’s 70! Hardly a wallflower, in the article, Nancy talks about how others have always found her ‘fascinating’.
Whilst admiring Nancy’s self confidence ( by the bucket load!) I can’t help but think that it’s sad that someone feels they need 48 hours a day just to take care of how they look!
Surely at 50 or 60 or 70 we should be aiming to be the best we can be at 50 (or 60 or 70) not trying to relive how we were at 30!
I’m all for taking care of my skin , hair and general appearance – although even my husband would agree that I’m low maintenance in that respect. I eat healthily (don’t exercise as much as I should!) but I’m far too busy living my life to dwell on trying to look 20 years younger that my age. I think its enthusiasm and constantly embracing new things which helps keep us ‘young’.
If anyone else read the original article in the Times I’d love to hear your views!
