“40 is the new 30”
I bought into that hook line and sinker! Was it Oprah who coined that phrase? Whoever it was, I want to kiss them because they added 10 years to my life in a matter of moments!
It’s true — beauty and wellness are all a state of mind. Don’t get me wrong, I am a huge sucker for the latest and greatest lotion, potion, peel, laser, topical item promising the fountain of youth, but I do believe age is just a number and the old cliché “you’re only as old as you think you are” IS TRUE! Half the battle is attitude—laughing, trying new things, spontaneous dancing, meeting new people, not taking ourselves so seriously.
That being said, the other half of the battle is good product. I am posting my FAVES and I encourage you to share yours too! But we must also know the reality of gravity — Father Time ain’t stoppin’ for anyone! So it’s a definite balance accepting ourselves and being the best we can be in that very spot.
I know I am no spring chicken — but I still gotta fluff my feathers!
*One final note — some sort of retinol is a must to add to the smoke-n-mirror regime.
