Nurturing Healthy Aging
We are all aware of the inevitable maturation of our skin— but those lines, spots, and saggy parts are actually the manifestation of the evolution of our lives. What we see in the mirror isn’t necessarily better or worse than the day or year before; it’s just different. Many women experience an acute discomfort with these changes in their 40s and 50s and turn to synthetic “miracle” creams and potions that promise to turn back the clock—but rarely deliver. Those “miracles” with volatile synthetic actives (VSAs) can cause not only topical irritation, but also an underlying immune response. This vicious cycle of treatments and flare-ups exacerbates the very issues you are attempting to treat! And the goal of reclaiming our youth, once only a focus for those in middle age, has now become a new obsession for those as young as their 20s. So what if, instead of trying to freeze our skin in time, we began to focus on skin health?
I mean, what is a wrinkle? Even babies have them—but do we ever think of those beautiful little smiles as wrinkles? The truth is that if we are healthy, signs of our experience and maturation are completely normal. In fact, joy, happiness, gratitude, laughter, compassion, and passion all lead to character lines that enhance the features we were born with, not take away from them.
But it is also true that aging is the result of accumulating cell damage. Partner this with the “muscle memory” of a squint, smile, frown, or gravity, and there you have it: those charming wrinkles! While the realities of health and vanity provide two very different perspectives on aging, there are things we can do to prevent a weakening of the skin. While our skin concerns are vast (wrinkles, age spots, uneven skin tone, adult acne), they are all caused by the same internal systemic imbalances such as inflammation, oil, and bacteria. The right skincare regimen and lifestyle will protect and repair our perfectly good cells, which will heal and prevent the underlying causes of premature aging from the inside out.
