“One of the most effective ways to pile on the years is to settle into a comfortable, familiar, snuggly fitting rut.”
So true. I couldn’t agree more with this sentence. I bookmarked this column in the Daily Telegraph written by Lisa Armstrong from April 3 because I’m a firm believer in this exact sentiment. You’ve seen it before, a woman holding on to a look or hairstyle because it worked so well years ago. They’re either afraid to change or have settled into a rut. It doesn’t have to be so. Armstrong points out minor little tweaks here and there that are easy to do and game changers without a major overhaul. My take is not to try and look like your younger self, but put in a little effort to look your best right now. It’s a constantly changing work in progress.
Armstrong lists her top ten tips in the column, which can be read in its entirety here, but these were the few I wanted to share.
1. Flash some ankle…a little skin peeking out from a pant leg, can be very youthful.
3. Shoulders back…”Good posture is the most youthful asset you can have – infinitely more elegant than a frozen, wrinkle-free brow.”
5. Add some shine…satin and silk are friends to the complexion. (Haider Ackermann hammered-satin blouse)
6. Have an efficient beauty routine…and stick with it. Personally, I’m addicted to RODIN Olio Lusso with whatever else I use. (RODIN skin oil)
