Take a fresh approach so you don’t exactly look 25 anymore? Hey, we definitely know how that feels! But are we crying about it? No ma’am.
We are celebrating, not lamenting the passage of time and its impact on our appearance. (Well, okay, occasionally we have a bad neck day, but usually we celebrate and, after all, that’s why scarves were invented!) When you reach a certain age, chances are you’ve developed a quiet confidence about the way you look. For one thing, you’re probably a whole lot less likely to fall victim to dubious fashion and make-up trends. When you do experiment with a new style, you have the self-assuredness to carry it off with sass or take it the heck off before you walk out the door!
For those times when you do feel ‘blah’ looking at your reflection, take heart. There are entire industries built around helping you get your mojo working again. a simple visit to the hair salon can change your whole look as well as your attitude; nothing adds zip like a new cut and fresh highlights. Feel like you should maybe lose a few kilos? there’s walking or a gym for that! of course, there are also spanx – just sayin’. (honestly, shapewear undergarments are the bees’ knees and you should totally invest in some!) there are many other cosmetic fixes any other cosmetic fixes that work like a charm. Pick up a DIY teeth-whitening kit or treat yourself to an in-chair mouth makeover at the dentist. Visit a beauty counter and try out the latest skin-perfecting primers, concealers and light-diffusing make-ups.
Never underestimate the importance of staying physically fit; it affords you good health and independence as you age, both more precious than appearance any day.
4 ways to give your look a new lease on life
1. Go light and bright! Light colours around the face perk you up and reflect on the skin, giving you a lift both physically and psychologically.
2. Reconnect with your feminine side. Take a break from those safer styles – be bold and experiment with florals, colours, prints and patterns.
3. Go and see a personal shopper. They’ll encourage you to venture out of your comfort zone – and that’s when the magic happens!
4. Visit a cosmetics counter and have your make-up done. The consultant will show you flattering products and how to use them.
