I also realize it is not only skin deep. We are reading all sorts of ludicrous books on feminism that we may never have picked up 15 years ago (for me, it's Fear of Flying.. I'm not knocking Ms. Jong, but I would not have appreciated it in my 30s). We are determining our identities and one step further and more subconsciously, our legacies.

Aging is difficult! I get that neither failing to notice, nor obsessing over aging, is a good idea, but I'm stuck in that trough this week. I am seriously hoping that, over time, these peaks and valleys will recede in my mind, because, gosh darn it, they're going to increase on my face.

Cocoa is very rich in antioxidants -- flavonoids and flavonols in particular. Our skin suffers ultraviolet damage from exposure to the elements, leading to photo aging, and antioxidants can potentially mitigate those effects.

As a culture we seem overly concerned, at least the baby boomers among us, with wrinkle prevention. We have the soft approach: creams, scrubs and lotions. We have the serious stuff: lasers, botox, fillers, surgery and some ominous sounding choices.

However, one of the best ways to keep the side effects of aging at bay may be something anyone can do, for free: get better sleep. The more we learn about rest and biology, the clearer it is that sleep plays an important role in keeping skin, bodies and minds young. In fact, it may be one of the most effective things you can do.

The good news is that when you start to eat less sugar your body will stop craving it. I suggest you don't try to change everything at once, just slowly add one good habit at a time and you'll notice that the bad habits go away.

I'd like to file a complaint. Zits or wrinkles, pick one. You shouldn't have to fight off both. If you know where I could direct these thoughts or maybe get some kind of refund or voucher, I'd appreciate it.

I always knew that after I had finished up a good romp in the hay with my husband, I glowed. The increased blood flow, the exertion, the release of endorphins. But what I didn't know was that having sex was helping me stave off the effects of aging.

It seems every time I travel, my skin goes crazy. In Mexico, my hands turned into lobster claws. In Tanzania, an allergic reaction to malaria meds blew up my lips to Big Ang proportions. I came home from Fiji with MRSA.

Chuck Nyren

I clomped to the bathroom upstairs where the real mirrors were, including ones you could hold in your hands. Now my face looked like a funhouse. There they were. One way over on the side, another under my chin, another near my left ear. Wrinkles that weren't mine.

Janet Eve Josselyn

You won't find my face on the other end of any Botox needles. I want to look as young as possible now that I am no longer young. But I also find it useful to be able to register anger with a facial expression, especially because my 10-year-old black lab is somewhat deaf.

I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 27 years old. If you'd told me then, in the exam room where I first received my diagnosis, that I'd live long enough to get laugh lines around my eyes, or creases along my lips, I would've cried tears of relief.

Sans Teeth, Sans Eyes? Shakespeare's Views on Aging Aren't That Simple

Susan Krauss Whitbourne

If Shakespeare were alive today, it's likely that he would be writing very differently about the experience of aging, time, and death. People live longer and, at least in developed countries, are in far better mental and physical health than they were in Elizabethan England.
