Recently I had a group dinner with some close friends. One of my friends brought her co-worker to dinner who had just moved up to San Francisco from L.A. During dinner the conversation turned into a discussion about my May wedding plans. I loved the ladies helpful suggestions about bridesmaid dresses, bachelorette parties (I think we’re going to wine country) and bridezilla drama.
And then it happened…
My friend’s co-worker, let’s call her ‘Sophie’, asked if I was going to get Botox before the wedding. I couldn’t believe my ears as I hadn’t even considered it. So I told her I thought I was too young for Botox. She told me something like, “Everyone your age is getting it.” I had to take a deep breath!
Honestly after I went back to my regular life, her comment stuck in my head. So, out of curiosity, I made an appointment with a dermatologist to ask some questions. At the doctors office I filled out some paperwork. Under the column named 'concerns', I wrote looking for the fountain of youth. When it was my turn, I went into the doctor’s office, put on my paper gown and waited for my adventure.
The doctor came in and asked me why I was there. I told him, a friend suggested I get Botox before my wedding day. Doctor said, “Let me give you the correct products for sunscreen and fine wrinkles. And to give you that wedding glow, try to drink more water! Now leave my office and tell your friend you found the fountain of youth!”
Why do I love this story? So my lovelies, what's your secret to getting that wedding glow? Go on, you can tell me, I promise not to tell and will keep it our little secret. Is it cucumber slices, plenty of water, face masks?
