  • Just remember that age is JUST a number. What matters most is how you're caring for yourself, your body and your health. When I turn 40, I plan on looking and feeling better than half of the 30 year olds out there, lol!

  • Its not as bad as you think. I agonized my whole 39th year, dreading the day. When it finally happened I was relieved it was finally here and I could stop the ridiculous agonizing, lol.

  • I turn 40 in May and I dont think its a big deal. In fact I like having the knowledge and wisdom I have now compared to when I was in my 20s lol. Now if we could only keep our looks from our 20s and still have the life exp and wisdom we have at 40.

  • 40 is awesome! I felt better and looked better and certainly was a lot smarter and much more confident at 40 than when I was in my 20's!!!

  • don't color your hair more than two shades down from your natural level because it will age the look of your skin.
