The secret to good skin when you get older is moisturize. I spend about 45 on Lancome face wash made with milk and honey, Lancome day moisturizer at $115-120, and Lancome nighttime moisturizer at $160-180. I have used it since I was 46, and am now 52. Even with many years sunbathing as a teenager, my skin is relatively wrinkle free, except for some frown lines, which I will get filler for when it gets to where I can't stand it.

As for the actresses mentioned, yes they aged gracefully and still retained an attractiveness. One woman, who I think had a problem with aging was Mary Tyler Moore. She was a very pretty young woman. She might have been a pretty older woman. But her obvious cosmetic make over is embarrassing to look at. She looks like a freak.
One post said too bad more men don't think like me...how do you know they don't?
Trouble is some actresses have work done but still deny it. It just makes us other mere mortals feel terrible about having wrinkles.

Absolute rubbish, as women age and hit menopause lack of hormones will lead to skin not being so plump, you will get wrinkles.
As for the men not wanting women with wrinkles, as if they are not aging themselves

Not so. The skin can continually be rebuilt and healed on a daily basis. Just slap some peptides on. No, you may not look like you are 25 but you certainly won't look your age.

This woman is post menopausal and is an example of what copper peptides can do.

How old would say this lady is? 35? 40? 55? Or is it almost impossible to tell.

Markymarc, the studies on copper peptides are (1) scant and (2) not terribly convincing. Not for anyone who is accustomed to demanding real data.

I was told the other day I pass from 22-42; people honestly can't tell my age. In any case, the copper peptides have been proved through scientific studies. If people don't use them, that is their choice. But they do work and are a way to prevent wrinkling as you age:

Copper Peptide Studies on Skin Renewal, Wound Healing and Hair Growth

Also worth noting, Loren (Dr. P) is 70 something but appears to be 55-60 years old.

Copper peptide sounds like something I'd clean my drains with.

Wrinkles are better than many things, among them plastic surgery and death.

Copper peptides have smoothed and tightened my skin; they work exactly as Loren says they do because they are based on science. I just turned 42 the other day but these days am rarely guessed as being older than 30. If people want to have wrinkles and think wrinkles are sexy, it's a matter of personal choice.

Loren is 70 something and looks much younger:
