Age-defying

Have you ever watched the show "10 Years Younger" on TLC? I really like it. A lot of the people they help have had some hard times that have contributed to them looking older than they actually are. They put the person in a soundproof box and have passersby guess their age. Usually the people guess they are about 10 years older than they are. They then take the person and give them a complete makeover, including fixing teeth and skin and eyes. By the end of the 10 days the person looks so great. They go back in the box and often the public guesses they are younger than they are. I love these shows that help people turn their lives around and improve their self-esteem. I know someone who could probably be a good candidate for this show- my old boss Nancy. She was a sweet lady and so nice, but she is only about 39 and she looks at least 60. She has been working at Wendy's since she was 16, and was the manager when I left, 20 years in fast food yikes. Her hair was long and completely gray, which is most of the reason she looks so old and her face looked worn out. If I ever had the opportunity to recommend anyone for this show it would be her.
