A few days back , I read about ‘ mirror fast ‘ being recommended for celebrities, especially those , whose looks matter a lot as far as their profession is concerned. The celebrities would naturally include film actors, stage artistes , media presenters etc. Fortunately or unfortunately, I have been signing papers and pushing files throughout my working career which has had nothing to do my looks. Still age catching up with you is the concern of all ; crow’s feet , furrowed face, laughing lines appearing all of a sudden are no laughing matter even for a less- than- ordinary –looks person like me. I have been virtually on a mirror fast for quite some years, though, I have discovered the term only lately or may be this is a new invention altogether. What with the ever growing and burgeoning cosmetics and wellness industry , age does take its toll on all of us , so why not accept the reality and face old age and fading & sagging looks gracefully ! Why run away from the mirror and observe ‘mirror fast ‘ which is just like burying one’s head in the sand like an ostrich !
