Who Wouldn’t Want to Look Like Audrey Hepburn?
The first time I went to Europe I was in my early twenties. My girlfriend and I did the Eurail Pass/Europe on $10/day/youth hostel thing, traveling with just one tote bag each. In Rome, we walked down the Spanish Steps and bought ice cream cones — just like Audrey Hepburn in Roman Holiday, because who wouldn’t want to be like or look like or pretend to be Audrey Hepburn?
Words to describe Ms. Hepburn in her early films included “gamine, fawn-like, willowy, and charming.” As she grew older and dedicated her efforts to the humanitarian efforts of UNICEF, words like “grace, gravity, compassion, and dignity” come to mind. Who, indeed, wouldn’t want to be like Audrey Hepburn?
Ms. Hepburn’s beauty transcended time. Natalie Imbruglia said, “I like the idea of growing old
gracefully and full of wrinkles… like Audrey Hepburn.”
Today, to wrinkle or not to wrinkle is a personal choice, given the myriad of invasive and non-invasive measures available. Beyond that choice is the absolute necessity for all of us to care for our skin, the largest organ of the body.
Did you know that…
- Sunlight is a major cause of wrinkles, skin dryness, and age spots.
- Skin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the U.S.
- Skin cancers can be cured if identified and treated early.
- Age spots, or “liver spots,” have nothing to do with the liver.
- It’s never too late to protect yourself from the harmful effects of the sun.
