As someone who is fairly new to the world of the anti-aging techniques, I’m a conservative.

But considering the fact that people have been proving they’ll try anything to look younger — from injecting their faces with botox to bird shit and bee venom facials — I’m not surprised to hear scientists are now trying to inject old people with the blood of the young.

I’m not judging.

As I’m typing this, I’m on week one of an anti-aging treatment that is effectively GIVING me acne for 12 weeks before turning over all my cells, burning off a layer of my skin, removing any wrinkles and making me look like a hot middle schooler.

Why am I doing this?

Because I am terrified of looking old and because we live in a society where women have traditionally been seen as “less valuable” when they stop looking like they’re 25.

And even though that’s bullshit, I’m realizing the older I get, a part of me has bought into that lie.
