When you are an adult - very adult - it is important not to cycle on those times when your skin was like silk and your waist was 57 centimeters, not a single wrinkle around your eyes and your legs are smooth like pins. It is difficult and easy to come to this at the same time. It is difficult - because you have to step over your egoism. It is easy - because you have to deeply love all the beauty of the world, and not just your own. And find new landmarks.
For me, the process of getting older was not painful for a number of reasons. The main thing is that I have never been a "peach", but all my first youth I suffered from chubby cheeks and a shiny nose. Wrinkles, ha! Yes, I was happy to have them. They somehow firmly blended into my worldview, as a sign of experience and a stormy, interesting life, while the cheeks are pop and bobblehead. Having wrinkles is prestigious, having smooth baby doll cheeks is like being stuck mentally and physically in childhood. Now I don’t see any prestige in wrinkles, but I don’t see any trouble either, but the fact of losing my cheeks is still pleasing. Although I love other people's cheeks! In general, I love a lot of strangers. And it helps a lot when one not the most beautiful day you suddenly realize: something has changed - and irrevocably. As one literary hero used to say to his wife: “It’s not about blooming youth,but quite the opposite."
In general, I noticed some strange lines on the legs. More precisely, on the front of the thighs. No, not cellulite. And no stretch marks. Just lines like wrinkles-creases (what a terrible word - a crease!) In those places where the skin has lost its elasticity.
I immediately remembered a photo of 60-year-old Eli McGraw, where she was walking along the beach in shorts, quite happy with life, although her legs were covered with tiptoes. A bit like a lizard. And somehow it got cold inside: it will shine on me very soon. And on my personal scale of values, this is much worse than wrinkles on the face.
My beautiful young legs were and passed.
But how much did they go!
How many May demonstrations and Victory parades. Half of Paris one night, half of Sydney the other night, all of Odessa the third night. 10 km. December 31, 1981, 15 km. in a campaign near Tula, another 15 - in the steppes of Kazakhstan … No, you can't list everything.
How bravely they walked. Never let you down!
And how much they danced: at school parties, discos and bars, under the sun and moon.
Well, yes, they have aged. So what? I could not hate them and pity them. And envy young people is not my style at all.
I'm ready to dance now! But not the way it used to be. I would love to dance like John Travolta in the movie Michael. Or like Christopher Walken in the video for Fatboy Slim - God, this is a real masterpiece. And I can do it, really. I will be capable of this for another twenty years, or even thirty!
In general, what I want to say. Well, yes, each of us suddenly once - and loses the legs of his youth. In return, it acquires the legs of its maturity. If this loss for you is like losing your home, fight! Fight as for life, and all the anti-aging techniques will help you! Just be careful with liposuction - the fat will be pumped out, and the skin will not tighten, as in the old days, and you will get wasted money and a sad result.
And for those who, like me, are ready to put up with the fact that they will never be Miss Bikini, but want to rock the same … Just change your priorities. Mini - no, skirts with a slit - questionable, shorts - at the dacha and the resort, but dancing … Dancing - yes! Only no sexual twists and turns. They look like winking, and adult women wink very rarely and only in bed. We dance like Walken! For this dance, it doesn't matter how many folds there are on the legs. For him, nothing matters except internal drive.
Of course, it's good when both drive and legs are present, as in 30 years. But having one thing is not bad. And let it be a drive.
And I also realized - and this turned out to be a pleasant discovery - that I was alien to envy. I really like beautiful girly legs. The same Gigi Hadid, or a journalist colleague, or my neighbor's daughter-in-law, or … It doesn't matter, there are a lot of them. The world is full of legs that can and should be shown. I no longer need it - and nothing, life has not become worse from this. The sun also warms (when it warms).
I love them anyway, my legs that have passed a lot. And I indulge. The arsenal of pampering is small, but they love it.
1. Body cream Revitalizing Supreme, Estée Lauder. In my opinion, this is the best cream for an "adult" body and especially thighs.
2. Ointment "Troxevasin". Blood circulation is our everything.
3. Vigorous washcloth. Also for blood circulation, tone and mood.
4. Scrub. I use either hard sugar La Ric or professional Slavic Couture.
5. Tonic oil. Excellent for the same "Slavic Couture", just coconut also works.
6. Pool and swimming, walking and squatting! Any activity that brings muscles to life.
7. And, of course, sex. By the way, the last partner repeated three times that my legs were awesome. Well, I didn't dissuade and show cellulite folds. He wouldn't have noticed anyway. With those who notice such trifles in a beautiful woman, I still have no way.
The times are passing when trips to other countries were waiting for the sake of updating the cosmetic bag. Every month new cool beauty brands appear in Russia, which we have been waiting for. Toothpastes, soothing nerves, fragrances for the traveler
