I Needed to Undo Some of the Damage That I Inflicted on My Skin
December 28, 2017
I was devastated the day that my youngest son looked up at me and said, “You are getting so old, mom.” I knew that I was aging, and I knew that I didn’t really like the way my skin looked. However, I had no idea that I looked so much older to anyone else. I booked a visit at a nearby aesthetic medical clinic in Singapore soon after that. I know all about how women are told often that they should grow old gracefully. However, I didn’t feel that I was doing anything gracefully at all. I had smoked for 30 years, and I had given it up just the year before. I also had not been taking care of my skin for many years.
I found myself feeling depressed for some time in the past few years. I stopped using lotion or doing anything to keep my skin looking good. I could see the damage that I caused to myself pretty easily with smoking, too. That is when I finally gave up cigarettes. I would peer into the mirror at myself and see large pores and lines all across my face. Makeup seemed to settle into the pores and lines. I felt like I looked ridiculous. I gave up on trying to wear makeup. The best I could do was to wash my face and slap on a layer of face cream.
My son really helped me to see that I was blind about how I looked. When I went to the aesthetic clinic, the employees there helped to give me hope. They explained that no one has the ability to look 20 to 30 years younger, but they told me that their treatments can help a person to look 10 years younger. I’ve been going there for six months, and they were correct about me looking 10 years younger with their help!
