I cannot wait to get my increasingly less-youthful looking hands on FACE IT, a new book by two former models who are now shrinks.
From what I am gathering from the New York Times piece on them, Drs. Vivian Diller and Jill Muir-Sukenick specialize in treating if not only the Formerly Hot, then definitely the Formerly Young who are stressing their faces into premature aging (whatever the hell that means) because they feel bad about feeling bad that they’re not looking as young as they used to.
Do you follow the torturous psychological process? I do, because I wrestle with it every day. It’s not bad enough that women feel bad about not looking as “hot” in the eyes of most of the world as they used to, but they also feel bad about feeling bad about it, because they worry that it makes them as superficial as those who get their entire face and body reconstructed part by silicone part so they don’t have to feel bad in the first place.
