How to look good and feel fabulous in your 50’s

As a woman in her 50’s, and a grandmother, people find it hard to believe my age. I’m a social butterfly, and every now and then, you can find me out and about socialising until the wee hours of the morning. Aging is not something I do well. For me personally, mindset has a lot to do with it. Changing your mindset is  lot easier said than done. How do you change your mindset so you have a healthier approach to aging? Every time I looked in the mirror, I could see the ravages of time on my face. This didn’t help my mindset.  Cosmetic enhancements became the catalyst I needed. When I saw myself more youthful, it naturally gave me a boost, which started to shift my somber mood on aging. That radiated through my interactions with people, my perspective of the world and gave me the motivation to embark on a healthy diet and exercise regime.

Take a look at my before (left) photo below. That photo was taken in 2009. I wasn’t having a great time in my life and it was showing up all over my face. I was aging rapidly. Stress, working long hours, poor diet and health was weighing heavily on all aspects of my life. I was hardly feeling good about myself.

Fast forward to now, and I have more energy and look younger than I did 8 years ago.  I started seeing age as something to look forward to. I have more confidence, wisdom and empowerment than ever before. As women in our 50’s, I strongly feel we should be embracing age. I’m not ready to crawl under a rock just yet. Frankly, I don’t think I’ll ever be. I think women in their later years have a lot to share and offer each other and collectively. It’s tough. Physical appearance plays a huge part in our society.

Thirty-five year old stretch marks post one treatment of skin needling and Laser

I’ve been obsessed by stretch marks for 35 years. Pretty much as long as I’ve had stretch marks. Yes, a whole 35 years ago, and as a result of pregnancy. I’ve tried all sorts of topical creams, including lightening creams, vitamin E, Bio-oil.  You name it, I’ve tried it, with no real marked improvement.

I’ve been determined to find a treatment for stretch marks for some time, and my own frustration with stretch marks, led me on a quest to finding a treatment that really improves the appearance of stretch marks. Not just newer stretch marks, but old stretch marks like mine.

What are stretch marks?

Stretch marks, in dermatology are referred to as striae. They are a form of scarring and are generally a white or pink color. What causes stretch marks is tearing within the middle layer of the skin called the dermis. This dermis layer is located directly below the epidermis, and is the layer of skin that accounts for the skin’s firmness and shape.
