    All. The. Time.
    To be honest, a lot of these treatments are quite affordable. Basic facials cost about $60 here, and if you are going for various laser treatments, you might pay $80 or so. These are typically done monthly, but even doing them quarterly can make a difference for most people (and laser maintenance programs at my age and skin condition -- according to teh doctor that I talked to about getting the spider veins removed -- would be about once a quarter anyway).

    After that, it's just good nutrition, sleep, and good skin care.

    Now, things like botox, thread lifts, and fillers for the face/mouth are a another angle on this, but I would say that looking at many of the celebrities linked above, my husband (who is 40) looks younger than some of those folks, and I definitely do. We could probably give Joseph Gordon Levitt a run for his money anyway. And that's without all this fancy stuff (my husband and I anyway. we dont' have this fancy stuff -- which may be genes).

    Anyway, I know that it's not affordable for a lot of people -- but it's not "you have to be a millionaire! in order to afford it" expensive.

    Well, I just don't want to die early, so I assume a correlation with visible aging and actual body breakdown. Is that a mistake?

    I have a friend who looks super healthy but has a heart condition. My Paleo friend looks like death-warmed-up but his blood results are amazing! Maybe they are exceptions, but it's hard to know.
