Once you think you have things figured out, your body is like NOT SO FAST MAMMA! I HAVE SOME TRICKS & SURPRISES for you. Those surprises are various physical changes. When you’re in your mid to late 30s and beyond you will begin to see those changes.
- Gray hair: That’s not a thread from your white blouse. Gray hair begins to appear. Initially, the gray hair may be subtle, so you may cut that strand, but the next thing you know those gray hairs are plentiful and taking over. Are you dying, cutting, or embracing those grays?
- Moles: The number and appearance of moles can increase over time. Pay attention to your moles. Is your mole getting bigger over time? Does your mole have a variety of colors? There are infographics online that can really help you determine if your moles are normal or irregular.
- Skin tags: Small, benign growths can appear on the skin. They can be quite irritating especially if they grew in areas of friction. Skin tags can be removed. Check with your doctor.
- Freckles: As you get older, existing freckles may become more pronounced, and new ones may appear. A lot of women are using the freckle filter, so rock your natural ones.
- Brown spots: Age spots or sunspots, also known as hyperpigmentation, can develop due to sun exposure.
- Crows Feet: I don’t know about you, but my crow’s feet mean that I stay smiling and laughing. Crow’s feet are fine lines and wrinkles around the corners of the eyes.
Those are a few of the physical changes that you will experience as you increase with age. Aging is a natural part of life and for many of us, our default is to fight aging. Bye-bye gray hair. Not today wrinkles!
The anti-aging beauty business is worth billions. Society and manufacturers of creams, Botox, and prescriptions have sold us the idea that getting older is a bad thing. Getting older isn’t a bad thing, feeling good inside and out is the key. Are you struggling with getting older? What did you do when the physical changes started to happen? Are you embracing the changes or fighting back?
