I'm 38, not 57

Where in the bloody hell did these crow's feet come from? I swear they weren't there last week.

Omigosh--same with me!!! WTF is up with that???? Two weeks ago I had nice, smooth skin. All of a sudden I have all this topography that just wasn't there before!

I used to be so smug about growing old gracefully and cosmetic procedures. But damn--I'm only 40 so sign me up for whatever hokus pokus is necessary to keep me from looking ancient just yet!

Countrymouse: I emailed Traci (Hello Darling!) for advice on dry skin and she was SO helpful. If she weren't a babe in the woods, I'd suggest that we ask her about crow's feet too.

Try opening yours eyes really wide, put your hand on your head and try to pull your scalp back with the flat of your hand. It takes 10 years off me.
I attract some strange looks when I go out like that, but I think they are just admiring my youthfulness.

I hear ya! I was looking in the mirror today -- and I almost frightened myself. Ack!

Can we not talk about this...otherwise I might have to mention the pouch forming under my chin.

I feel ya Jen.

I have developed a double chin that only appears in pictures...what the hell is that?

The crows' feet I can handle. It's the vertical wrinkles above my top lip that are freaking me out. I have Old Lady Mouth and I don't think I'm handling it well.

What? No chin hairs that sprout complete while your waiting for a light to change?

Just wait!!

All I can say is, "Yeah! Botox!!"

Don't smile at all and they won't show up so much.

Oh, and to avoid the double chin in the photos, always lift your head up slightly which helps to stretch out the chin (worth practising in front of mirror before going to places where aforementioned double chin may be caught on camera).
