36. 63 isn't old. That's the new 43. Christie Brinkley is about 65.

You have it right, though. This is a time in life to focus on others, appreciate what you have, work on having good health. But hey...looking as good as we can affects us all. Our personalities are related to how we perceive we look.

There's nothing wrong with trying to look younger or better. That's why some wear makeup, color their hair, dress a certain way. You can be beautiful inside and be beautiful outside, too. She can make improvements, if she wants to.

A beauty day may be in order, and splurging on some beauty products. A day at a spa...nails, hair treatment, maybe a yoga class. Then the products for the face...face masks, hair masks, firming cream. A long bubble bath or whirlpool bath with candles & nice scents. And an exercise plan. A new nightie. So she'll end up feeling refreshed, and will look more glowing and youthful. It's fine if she doesn't want to, but it sounds like she may need a pickmeup. If she wants to go further, she can try injections for the naso-labial folds, which are not permanent.

Wrinkles are not nearly so aging as sagging. And there's not much one can do about sagging except a facelift. It's what happens when you get older, esp if you had full cheeks when young. I call it the Angela Lansbury or Paul McCartney syndrome. But you can make your complexion glow and emphasize your eyes and have super hair, to detract.

I wonder if someone said something that hurt her feelings?
