Beauty after 50 is a complicated and somewhat touchy subject. On the one hand, the older we get, the less we tend to care about what other people think.

Seeing young women advertising anti-aging creams has always annoyed me. Their skin is already flawless. What “improvements” could they possibly desire? I realize, of course, that I may not be in the target audience for most anti-aging creams. Women who are under extreme pressure to look useful are usually in their 30s or 40s.
