Doctors are recording cases of young women requesting Botox to make them look more like the filtered versions of themselves.
By rejecting or disrespecting older women, we’re rejecting and disrespecting our future selves.

I keep thinking about this cover of French Elle I saw in the summer. It’s really refreshing to see a woman with wrinkles on a mag cover. Body positivity conversations very rarely touch on the question of age or being allowed to look your age. Articles promote where to get the “most natural looking” Botox and fillers but don’t often question why we’re all terrified of looking older. I’d rather have life lines like this woman than pump Superdrug peddled Botox into my face and end up looking like Goldie Hawn in Death Becomes Her
What if we revered the ageing process as much as we celebrate a smooth face? What if an older woman's face with all its natural wrinkles and softness were as championed as a woman who 'looks good for her age'?
