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.
- You smoke.
- You don’t get enough sleep.
- You drink too much alcohol and caffeine.
- You are dehydrated.
- You get too much sun.
- You don’t take care of your skin.
- You are a yo-yo dieter.
- 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.
