13 Nov Just What Is Anti Ageing All About?
Its funny how you get to a certain age and a certain part of your life and the word ‘ageing’ gets thrown in your face like bees to honey. The secrets, the potions and lotions, the procedures…phew! This has become such a huge aspect of life that has now been imprinted in popular culture. Beauty and anti ageing are now the IT thing. Its not just matching your fendi with a fur, you have to have the face to go with it. And the body come to think of it. To some they fear the dreaded ‘A’ word. We can can not only turn back the clock but many layers of skin as well. The fountain of youth has now become the holy grail, just like finding true love or getting the perfect bra that fits. We are all looking for ‘the one’. The one being the serum, cream, concealer, laser or treatment to turn the time machine. Age is just a number yes. But for some it is much much more. Yes things start to change and go south as the age gets higher. But even though we are lucky to be able to tweak things and fix things now a days what about a level of acceptance of ourselves. Loving our healthy bodies and embrace rather than erase things. There is, i am sure, an inner battle that one has with themselves about what they like and don’t like about their appearances. The battle too of self acceptance, self assurance and self love. How much is too much? How far is one willing to go? Many of us do actually age gracefully. It is not just about lucky DNA. Its about how you live, how you feel, your lease on life, how you move and what you do. Self keeping does play a part in aging. If we begin to see the word anti ageing differently and instead of pushing the ageing process away we cut the negative associations with it, we might be able to approach it and feel differently about age and looks. We may appreciate the process of life more. Anti ageing isn’t a bad thing. We are lucky to be able to enhance and correct certain things. You do it for you. You body, your self esteem, your self acceptance. So why not tweak a little and embrace aging a little. You can do both without the battle to win the race to turn back the clock. Tweak gracefully. Happy is one when you get the right serum and Retinol.
