You look older than you really are.

Age discrimination exists. It is stupid and dumb.

But you aren’t doing yourself any favors.

Here are the things you are doing, right now, that make you look old.

  1. You smoke.
  2. You don’t get enough sleep.
  3. You drink too much alcohol and caffeine.
  4. You are dehydrated. 
  5. You get too much sun.
  6. You don’t take care of your skin.
  7. You are a yo-yo dieter.
  8. You are ignoring your allergies.

I look older because of sun exposure, allergies and yo-yo dieting. I wish I would have taken better care of myself in my late 20s and early 30s. While I still drink too much coffee and tequila, I also get more sleep and maintain a healthy and consistent weight.

We all get older, and I am not telling you to modify your appearance for a job. I am telling you to stop smoking and wear sunscreen. Stop picking at your adult acne and breaking those tiny capillaries on your face. And for the love of god, please take a Zytrec.

You might not get a job, but you will feel better.
