I recently heard somebody ask me at a conference, you did x, right???? (name of a famous procedure to remove wrinkles). I was shocked and flattered that she thought my face looked so beautiful, that that extreme procedure was the answer.
I smiled and answered no, but I will tell you my tips for an ageless skin!
How old do you think I am? My goal when I turned 19 was to start taking care of my skin so I would look good for as long as I could, without resorting to a surgical procedure. Certain surgical procedures are not for everyone, and some will turn to solutions from the best anti aging supplement they can find, to doing facial yoga every night, there is a lot that we all can do to stop us from going under the knife.
In all those years, I’ve learned the most important lesson of all, which sounds cliche, but beauty comes from within. Stress, fear, unhappiness, depression affect your skin, so do your diet and fitness routines or lack of ……
Beauty comes from within and should not fit in a box! I truly believe beauty is ageless and I’ve made my life mission to share that.
So let’s start by:
How to shift inner beauty switch
I meditate every morning and work on calming my strong Latina personality to find my path and my inner peace.
This is the part where you think I’m crazy! I often look in the mirror and tell myself, I’m beautiful, I’m gorgeous, this body is a vessel that translates my beautiful soul. You will be surprised how well it works!!!
I often work to donate my time to other bloggers and people around me, which I believe makes my spirit closer to our source, to whatever your belief is….mine is God.
How to change your diet and exercise routine
I’m talking about baby steps to bring a healthier you to the table! Sometimes I don’t have time to workout, so 20 minutes on my treadmill will do.
I just make sure choices like giving up on a glass of wine every night, only make dessert once a month and never fry anything are those small steps that will lead into bigger ones.
How to change your beauty routine
- Always wash your face at night
- Remove make up before going to bed
- Always use a moisturizer
- Always use a night cream
- Always use a special product, such as a serum, on the area around your eyes and your “problem areas”
- Always sleep 7 hours or more 7 nights a week
- Surprisingly the price tag of my make up has done little to help my skin condition
That being said, getting older is unavoidable, but that doesn’t mean your skin needs to reflect your age. I am the living proof of that. The secret to younger, healthier looking skin is Aveeno Absolutely Ageless™ Restorative Night Cream and Aveeno Absolutely Ageless™ Intensive Renewal Serum.
AVEENO Absolutely Ageless™ Restorative Night Cream is clinically proven to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles as well as help reduce the visible effects of elastin and collagen loss.
This clinically proven formula improves the appearance of fine lines, hydrates and improves skin texture, and nourishes your skin. It also strengthens skin’s natural moisture barrier to maintain younger, healthier looking skin over time. This gentle and powerful anti-aging serum contains a concentration of ACTIVE NATURALS Blackberry Complex infused with vitamins, antioxidants, and powerful anti-aging ingredients.
The most important thing is that you work towards your ideal of beauty. Your goals for your own skin, but I would love to see you joining me to prove that age is nothing but a number and what you do and use on your skin matters and reflects on the final outcome.
Let’s do the age test! How old do you think I am? Do you think I am doing a good job? I’m going to give you a hint, I was born in the 60s.
