In the Philippines, it’s easy to cheat on one’s age. Trust me, I applied for a job as twenty five when I was nineteen. Then, decades later I got a job as 36 years old when I was 46. I’m a workaholic and planned on working till I’m 80+. I won’t mind dropping dead in my workstation.
In my late twenties, I read in a women’s magazine an article about the signs of aging and that it could be prevented. Aging cannot be prevented. It’s the nature of all beings, men or animals but the signs that makes aging noticeable can be put off. I bought the idea because I knew that employers worldwide discriminate against the aged. If I looked 35 at 80 I will be hired. If I looked 60 at 40 I will have a hard time getting a job.
Here are the body parts that show aging.

3. Eye lids – eye lids have a tendency to droop with age. There’s no way to go around it. I had monolid eyes. When I developed eye bags in my 40’s I went to a plastic surgeon to remove the eye bags. He suggested that I have the lids folded surgically as well. He said that the lids will droop as I age so if I get it folded I may get away with it.
So here’s my folded eyelids, instead of drooping down the aging skin goes inside the fold. And putting on eye makeup got easier. Eye liners hide under the monolid. Ask any Asian.
