How I Hit Rewind On Aging
I turned 39 yesterday, so I thought I’d share the secrets to how I hit rewind on aging and thankfully none of it involves breaking out a ✏️ because I’ve never feared getting old, just LOOKING old. 😬😂
Hey, at least I’m honest.
I never get tired of people being surprised that I’m almost 40, been married 17+ years or I have a teenager.
But just like everything else in my life, I’ve been intentional.
Secret #1) I eat real food. You could say I’m a food snob. 🥗🥑🍒🍏🥕 When I ate processed food, I lived in chronic pain and looked 10 years older - no lie. All of my 20's I suffered unknowingly with fibromyalgia and celiac disease. It left me tired, depressed, and inflamed. Changing my diet was the game changer that allowed me to go to the next level.
Secret #2) I limit my sun exposure. I never bought into the sunscreen hype. That’s right, I don’t wear it. 😱 You can yell at me all you want, but I won’t change my opinion because I'm actually more concerned about the chemicals in most sunscreens than the sun. I just cover myself and limit prolonged sun exposure. You won't typically catch me in the sun uncovered for more than 30-45 minutes at a time. I started doing this in my early 20’s and it’s paid off.
Secret #3) I take care of myself by investing in my appearance. Your appearance effects how you see yourself and when you feel good well life's just better. Even when I didn’t have a lot of money, I still made sure I was moisturizing and washing my face. I'm not really loyal to one particular skincare line. I use things from multiple lines. But my hair products are 100% non-negotiable. Nothing besides @monatofficial will ever touch a strand on my head. These products are cruelty free 🐰+ non-toxic with none of the 💩 you don't want, and they actually work. Your hair ages faster than your skin, so make sure you're using something that will promote healthy growth from the inside out. You can text "Hair Quiz" to 719 772 0787 and I'll help you choose a personalized hair regimen. (Yes that's my personal # and if I'm not available, someone on my team will hook you up)
Secret #4) I’ve always had this belief that I would look young forever, so I feel like it’s working so far. Sorry universe, I’m not available for aging. ✌🏽
Good job law of attraction. 😘
Secret #5) I can’t help but think the living the life I WANT to live plays a role. Stress and being unhappy in life will age you like a mofo.
So stop living up to society’s expectations and choose yourself. Trust me.
