Superpowers

As a pre-adolescent I spent many a Saturday morning drooling over Dean Cain’s lycra-clad chest in The New Adventures of Superman, feeling green with envy as he scooped up Teri Hatcher and they flew into the distance. I also watched Disney’s Aladdin on repeat, marvelling at the genie, three wishes and magic carpet ride. Then, Hollywood began to represent magically strong women with the likes of Halle Berry as Catwoman or the pink and yellow Power Rangers.

 Magical powers and the supernatural surround us in popular culture – from comics to movies and gaming to TV – and it all begs the question: what would I do if I had a superpower?

Asking round the office here at This Works, the girls’ reactions were varied to say the least. Janet would have the ability to turn back time, so you could know what was coming and plan accordingly, “That way you could get the lottery numbers!” she laughed. Claire added to this, “I think I’d choose the ability to create time.” Sounds like the demands of a toddler are very time-consuming!

Tara showed her dark side and said she’d “Maybe want to control people. You know, to manipulate reactions or feelings.” And Oliya declared, “I’d have the power to be at peak physical fitness without ever having to go to the gym or buy expensive skincare products!” For me, a suspicious soul, I think I would put invisibility to very good use…

The consensus seemed to be, however, that the superpower of going back and correcting mistakes would be the ultimate one. While I don’t believe in having regrets, I do agree it would be nice to revisit those little moments when I said something really daft, tripped over on the treadmill or threw up in my handbag on a train (all 100% true, I’m afraid). Understandably, memories like that really make me squirm!

Sadly, superpowers don’t really exist and we can’t go back in time to change how we did things. It’s up to us to do things the best way possible first time round. That includes looking after our physical and mental health – meaning lots of sleep, regular exercise and a good skincare regime, using products that use plenty of natural actives. To the last point, we’ve got the perfect thing, as close to a superpower product as they come to moisturise, soothe and protect young skin from premature ageing. Abracadabra!

    my part consider it from so many various angles. Its like women and men aren’t interested unless it is one thing to do with Woman gaga!
