How Jamie Lee Curtis Is Calling Out Antiaging Products

While we all patiently wait for that fabled fountain of youth, skincare and cosmetics products market themselves as the answer to all of our aging worries. Anti-aging creams have proven to be some of the most expensive products in the skincare game – firming serums and wrinkle-clearing serums can go as high as $1,800 (via Forbes), but why? What is it about luxury skincare and the concept of reverse-aging that lures us in to willingly drop hundreds of dollars?

An infamous myth surrounding the beauty world is that if any product claims to be "anti-aging," you need it. But, have you ever stopped to question what exactly is being pushed here? The phrase "anti-aging" itself is problematic at baseline if you take a second to really think about it. Why anti? When did we become so averse to the concept of naturally growing and transitioning to the next stage of beauty? Well, Jamie Lee Curtis has yet again moved us all with her stance by questioning this entire concept everyone has grown to accept.

Jamie Lee Curtis wants everyone to embrace aging

By owning her staple grey hair at an early age, Jamie Lee Curtis has always been an advocate for embracing any signs of aging and finding the beauty in it. Aging is a natural process. However, marketing campaigns and altered images online have grown to teach us that aging is something we should avoid. Well, Curtis is fed up with it.

On October 12, Curtis joined Lorraine Kelly on her show "Lorraine" to discuss everything from her new movie "Halloween Kills" to her plastic surgery experiences. When Kelly praised her for being an advocate for natural beauty, Curtis had some powerful words to share about her experience. "I've had the trial and error of the part. I did plastic surgery, it didn't work. I hated it—made me feel worse," she said.

Curtis preached against the anti-aging industry by sharing some words everyone needs to hear to wake up. She passionately explained, "The term anti-aging — what? What are you talking about? We're all going to f****** age. We're all going to die. Why do you want to look 17 when you're 70? I want to look 70 when I'm 70." It's time that everyone stopped trying to constantly strive for unattainable youth, and see the beauty of the natural aging process. Instead of condemning every wrinkle and line, show them some love!
