Age with Attitude

1.3.19 ARTICLE 3 - AGE WITH ATTITUDE Banner.jpg

Aging is a biological reality we all share and for many of us women, it can seem like a constant war, fighting back against nature and against the clock. We don’t just worry because of the health challenges; we worry about aging because of how we will look. Wrinkles, cellulite, sun spots, gray hair, sagging stuff, yellowing stuff, you name it. But who says we can’t turn aging into a positive? With a little help from good skincare, we can embrace the confidence that comes with age and let our best natural selves shine through.

Skin is the largest human organ, so it’s no wonder that good skincare is closely linked to good inner health and wellbeing. As aging happens, skin becomes naturally drier and tissue thinner, which can lead to insecurity about our appearance.

Luckily, it’s never too late to improve your skin and it’s often the basics, like wearing sunscreen every day and staying hydrated that can have the biggest impact.

Something as simple as switching from a lotion to a cream or oil, can give your skin the extra hydration it needs. Keep an eye out for moisturising ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, ceramides, plant butters and oils.

Around the age of 40, the body’s natural decrease in collagen production starts to become more noticeable. This is unfortunately the reason we start to notice a bit more sag to the skin and hollowing at the eye sockets and under the cheekbones. Firming, lifting and sculpting products, along with facial massage can help to lift your skin upwards and combat gravity’s toll.
