Comments Off on Accepting Your Age !!

 I recently read this article in More Magazine, and after watching what Demi Moore has been putting herself through in the past year or so, I felt it was written just in time to help save some other men and women who are having a difficult time coping with aging. I found myself sympathizing a little bit with what Demi and other Hollywood stars must go through as they age. After all, their entire careers are based largely upon how they look. For the rest of us mere mortals, looks are a tool we have used to help us feel good or bad about ourselves, but, at a certain point, we all have to find meaning in our lives outside of just looking good.

Bonne Foi’s natural skin care line can help you look smoother and younger, but it will not make you look 21 again. Nothing can. In that vein, take a look at this excerpt from an article in this month’s More Issue:

“How to Let Go of Wanting to Look Young

No matter who you are or how much money you throw at a plastic surgeon, you will age. What you can control? How you do it: in denial—or with dignity. Psychologist Vivian Diller lays out a plan for those who choose the latter

 There’s an uh-oh moment in every woman’s life, whether at the first gray hair or the first fine line, when we realize that the first blush of youth is gone. Yes, we can panic (and pluck). But the key to weathering this transition with aplomb, says Vivian Diller, PhD, Author of Face It: What Women Really Feel As Their Looks Change, is to redefine how we think about beauty. “Our generation owes it to ourselves to find another way to feel beautiful rather than trying to turn back the clock,” she says. Here, Diller, 58, a former ballet dancer and model who has decided to age without significant nipping or tucking, explains how a change in attitude can help us regain confidence and even improve our looks.”

 At Bonne Foi, we advocate a holistic attitude towards aging. Rather than just trying desperately to stay young, accept the fact that you are aging. Do the things we have posted about in our blogs. Wear your sunscreen, and use the Bonne Foi natural skin care line to keep your face from becoming lined and wrinkled. Exercise and find new challenges that keep you feeling fulfilled and useful. This is a much better way to approach aging.
