I turned 41 last month and honestly, I feel like I just had my 40th birthday the week before that. Time flies the older you get and with that comes wrinkles, extra fluff, gray hair, and a little bit of sass.
This year, for my 41st birthday, I promised myself to live a little in the upcoming year. With that comes 5 things I have put together to help me accomplish that.
1. Take Care of Myself
Over the course of the last 10 years I have not taken care of myself at all. I have been lazy about diet, exercise, and keeping my skin beautiful I am going to be taking the RoC® RETINOL RESOLUTION.
RoC® Skincare is inviting all women to get a head start on 2016 by making a RETINOL RESOLUTION now to look and feel her most beautiful this holiday season.
Yes — at my age I have wrinkles all around my eye area and I do not want to be one of those women that have a gazillion on their face by the time they are 55 years old.
Board Certified New York Dermatologist Dr. Debra Jaliman says this —
“To age gracefully, two of the most important ingredients to include in your skincare routine are SPF and the less obvious, retinol. Retinol is a champion when it comes to smoothing fine lines and deep wrinkles. I suggest introducing an over the counter retinol into your regimen as early as your mid-20s!”
On top of that, I have made a promise to myself to eat better this year and lay off all the highly fried and fattening foods I have eaten in the past.
I am also going to be exercising more.
2. Stop Being Afraid
One of my biggest hangups is being afraid to try things. If something seems difficult, or if I think I might not succeed, I am afraid of trying it. This year– I am to stop this. I am going to be brave and dare myself to step out of my own box.
3. Learn to Say No
I have a bad habit of saying yes to everyone and everything. When I do, my life gets overwhelming and complicated, so this year, I am going to practice saying no more often and yes a little more less.
4. Indulge More In Me
I give of myself all the time — I mean ALL the time. Sometimes I feel guilty when I take time for me, like my monthly massage I get. But not anymore. I am going to be okay with me and indulging in the things I like — such as manicures, pedicures, and foot massages — and YES my monthly massage.
While that may seem a little vain, I can promise you it’s not. When I give to myself and do things I enjoy doing, then I am a better person to my family.
That is one reason I am doing this resolution. I want to look pretty and when I look pretty, I feel pretty. Using the clinically proven RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Deep Wrinkle Night Cream, I can have visibly smoother wrinkles in just 4 weeks.
RoC® RETINOL is up to 2x stronger than imitators based on vitro RETINOL activity in RoC® RETINOL CORREXION® Deep Wrinkle Night Cream.
5. Downtime Is Important Too
This is my #1 thing I am learning right now. Downtime is super important for me. Because I work from home, I homeschool my daughter, I am my husband’s secretary, and I take care of this household — this momma needs some downtime — (can you say binge watching Gilmore Girls?)
I hope that these 5 things will help you to let loose the older you get. I know I am a work in progress, but I am loving the journey of discovering me again.
