The well-meaning advice of my youth.
Before I get to why I’m crusading against scrubs, a story from my youth.
When I was 17, I read somewhere; some little tidbit of advice, that I could smooth away wrinkles by, 1) Heating the back of a dessert spoon and then, 2) Proceed to smooth over any offending wrinkles with said spoon. Violà! Wrinkles Gone!
Clearly, I started raising my eyebrows at life and all its conundrums at quite a young age, hence wrinkles at 17. But still, I was determined to banish these weird lines that had taken up residence on my forehead.
Luminous skin is youthful. And achievable. At any age!
Last week we looked at how and why our skin ages. We also discussed the idea of making a few small changes to shift our beliefs from the inevitability of ageing to something more positive.
For me, the definition of an ageless skin is not so much, a skin without wrinkles, as that’s inevitable, but rather a skin that glows with luminosity.
But of course, there is no magic bullet, no one miracle ingredient or cure-all. I believe there are four keys elements to luminous skin.
This week, in Part 2 of the Positive Ageing Series it’s time to take action and there are four essential elements you need to know about.
Is ageing skin inevitable?
Unless you’re Cher, then it kind of is. So, if you expect your skin is going to age, have you ever wondered why?
Or why it is that some of us seem to age better than others? What is their secret?
Is how you age just good luck and good genes?
More so, is there anything you can do to fight what appears to be a natural process and still find a way to age positively?
In this 4 part series about positive ageing: Is ageing positively even possible? Can we be happy in the skin we’re in? When the first signs of our skin ageing begin to appear, is there any way to feel positive about it? I’d even suggest, can we find acceptance in the passing of time and how it changes the appearance of our skin? Not so easy, but important for your mental wellbeing.
Read on and I’ll share with you what I know to be true.
