As we age, there is a danger of losing our desire to shine.
Ever had one of those moments where you're like, "Did I just let myself go?".
I get it - life happens.
Embracing beauty as we age is an art form, and I'm here to guide you through the journey of rediscovering your confidence.
Because, I've been there. And back again.
Somewhere, typically in our 40s/early 50s, there's a danger of losing our desire to look and feel good because we don't see it in ourselves anymore.
At the same time as our outer image is staring us in the face and challenging us, internal aspects of life, such as wisdom, emotional IQ, and the happiness curve, become more manageable as we age. There's the bright side!
Yet, those external challenges, like our skin wrinkling and sagging, an abundance of dark spots and pigmentation, and even loss of lashes and brows, may seem so. Dang. Daunting.
There's a danger of losing our desire to keep our appearance up.
Let's explore the insights shared in a recent Living Visibly Over 50 podcast conversation between Linda and I. Today I'm pulling out the highlights around self-care and beauty, focusing on our skin and makeup routines.
As we age, beauty and self-care can make life so much more interesting and fun.
However, we have finite resources, so what do we focus on, where do we start?
I'd like to share insights on starting a skincare and makeup journey with the goal of feeling good as we age, without feeling overwhelmed.
Begin With What Calls To You
Start by addressing either your main concerns (perhaps loss of lashes? get started on a safe lash growth serum) or choose to highlight your best features (perhaps your skintone is glorious) you'd like to enhance.
Test and try something new. Repeatedly, until you find what makes you smile. It's a process. Keep going. Have fun.
When that feels good, and you've made progress, ask yourself "What's next?"
What are your best features? Where would you like to draw the eye to?
Alternatively, what would you like to draw the eye away from?
