A WRINKLE IN TIME
We all have that aha moment when we look into the mirror and don’t recognize the person staring back at us. My moment of truth was at the hairdresser when I was in my late forties. I remember thinking, “Oh, so this is how it’s going to be.” Now almost two decades later, I am still wondering about what’s to come. I still feel very energetic and youthful and don’t want to be counted out because of my chronological age. I believe that developing your style (and being open to updating it) is the secret to looking good and combating the feeling of “not counting”. Remember, like anything worth while, maintaining your style takes energy and commitment.
- Stand up straight- posture is everything.
- Exercise- part of keeping a straight back is exercising regularly.
- Embrace a willingness to evolve your clothing, hair and makeup. Dated makeup and hair styles will make you seem “frozen in time”.
- Embrace a few new trends each season- fringe, long sweater coats and embroidery look good on everyone.
- Change up your eyeglass frames.
- Re-think your jewelry metal colors. As your hair color changes, so should your metal colors. Silver looks great with gray or silver hair. Gold looks better on blondes and redheads.
- Make sure you add a brow product to your brows and always wear some color on your lips.
- Take care of your feet and wear good shoes. There are shoes out there that are stylish and as comfortable tennis shoes.
- Getting old is ridiculous- you have to laugh! A good sense of humor makes everything tolerable.
- Eat more vegetables- your skin will look brighter, you will feel better and your figure will thank you.
- Take care of your skin- SPF of 30 necessary every day.
- Take care of your teeth- whiten if necessary. Dingy teeth make you look old.
- Smile- no one will know if you have wrinkles if you are smiling. Be happy and enjoy where you are in your life.
