For many boomers, excessive smiling has left its mark on our faces. We have all earned these lines and they are actually a sign of a well-lived life. But the key to beauty comes from the inside out. It's about health, wellness and feeling good. It's the whole picture that counts.
Let me tell you the truth about growing younger instead of aging: It's impossible (no matter what marketers tell you). Keeping my "biological" age a secret makes me feel like I have something to be ashamed of, which I don't.
For years my curls were my enemy, but no more. I can now say without embarrassment that I love my curls. Everyone has something special, some natural-born qualities worth preserving and enhancing with pleasure, I believe.
When people think about aging well, they tend to think about doing some kind of big makeover like joining a gym or cutting out carbs completely. But what is really much more effective is to pick smaller things that are more manageable.
