Recently, I had the chance to rub shoulders with some celebrities while staying in Taipei. Not just any celebrities, but ones who seemed to have found the fountain of youth!

The Ageless Celebrities

Through engaging in activities like badminton, mahjong, and dining out, I got to know these Taiwanese celebrities more personally. One thing was glaringly apparent – they all looked significantly younger than they actually were. 50 looking like 35? 40 appearing 28? It was almost magical.

Why Do Celebrities Need to Look Good?

  1. Image and Impression: Celebrities are constantly in the public eye, and looking youthful helps create a positive impression.
  2. Human Capital: Their face and appearance are essential commodities. It’s their brand, their identity, and it must be preserved.

The Desire to Look Young

Naturally, who wouldn’t want to look good and young? During casual chats, we complimented them on their youthful appearance. That’s when they spilt the secret: ….” Maintenance.”

We all know that maintaining the face and body is crucial, but we uncovered something deeper. The real secret was “maintenance since young,” meaning procedures like Botox, cosmetic fillers, facelifts, etc., have to be done young, even in one’s 20s!

Lifestyle Choices for a Younger Look:

  1. Healthy Diet
  2. Regular Exercise
  3. Proper Sleep
  4. Avoiding Stress
  5. Skincare Routine

Medical Procedures for Anti-Aging:

  1. Botox
  2. Cosmetic Fillers
  3. Facelift
  4. Laser Therapy
  5. Chemical Peels

Some celebrities even admitted to starting these as early as their 20s!

We might be late to this game. Unfortunately, not any amount of money can entirely reverse the look (except through apps like Meitu or photoshop touch-ups – I say this jokingly, of course).

This entire episode reminded me of Warren Buffett’s saying…

Buffett once said this about the last car…

Let’s say that when I turned sixteen, a genie appeared to me. And that genie said, ‘Warren, I’m going to give you the car of your choice. It’ll be here tomorrow morning with a big bow tied on it. Brand-new. And it’s all yours.’

Having heard all the genie stories, I would say, ‘What’s the catch?’ And the genie would answer, ‘There’s only one catch. This is the last car you’re ever going to ge tin your life. So it’s got to last a lifetime.’

If that had happened, I would have picked out that car. But, can you imagine, knowing it had to last a lifetime, what I would do with it?

I would read the manual about five times. I would always keep it garaged. If there was the least little dent or scratch, I’d have it fixed right away because I wouldn’t want it rusting. I would baby that car, because it would have to last a lifetime.

That’s exactly the position you are in concerning your mind and body. You only get one mind and one body. And it’s got to last a lifetime. Now, it’s very easy to let them ride for many years. But if you don’t take care of that mind and that body, they’ll be a wreck forty years later, just like the car would be.

It’s what you do right now, today, that determines how your mind and body will operate ten, twenty, and thirty years from now.”

Similarly, in terms of wealth, starting young gives us a better chance and a longer time to compound. Start in your 40s, and it might be too late, leaving you realizing during retirement that your money isn’t enough.


Wouldn’t it be perfect to have aged wisdom, a youthful appearance, and tons of money? It got me thinking: When we were young, we had no money for face maintenance. Now that we can afford it, why still wait, delay, or be extremely frugal?

Life is short. Although I can’t reverse my age, I would love to look young and healthy. Maybe it’s time to invest in maintenance, both in appearance and financial security, to live the best version of our lives. After all, it’s never too late to start caring for the only body and life we have!
