Not Super Thrilled about Looking Older

New Yorkers know how to avoid the whole looking older thing. They grab the #7 spot for states that are most hesitant to embrace the idea of aging. Society is about staying young as long as we can but why not embrace it and show off our silver fox or stunning salt-and-pepper look?

The laugh lines, gray hairs, and crow's feet are badges of honor. Instead of chasing the fountain of youth, it's time to be good with the skin that we're in and celebrate it.
