Being a woman, there is added pressure to look good and that’s why there are so many beauty products being marketed today. But nature does not allow women to stay beautiful forever. Thanks to gravity and particles in our atmosphere, a woman will age and eventually develop wrinkles in the face. Though it cannot be prevented, there is a way to slow down the process. Genetics may also have a lot to do with how a woman ages. Celebrities must feel the pressure even more as they are in the limelight. However, it may be more challenging for them because with all the makeup they wear as a part of their work, their skin definitely gets affected. There are some women, though, who have managed to age gracefully and are still timeless beauties.
