I can't believe I was talked into blogging. Every morning I wake up and I go to the bathroom and look in the mirror and see the yellow sticker saying "blog today." Internal groan! I continue looking into the mirror and remember the woman who is staring back at me, in a rather judgment way, used to look so much older than the one that I felt inside. When did things change? How did I change the way I looked to match the way I felt?
So many people complain to me about looking older than the way they feel so maybe this is worth talking about! In Australia we age so much more quickly than our European counterparts, despite the fact that we spend a lot of time, money and effort, chasing healthy goals such as screening programs, exercise regimes, healthy eating patterns and nutritional supplements to name but a few. Why? Well in one word, maybe two, the sun. I think we as a nation want to have our cake and eat it too.
Years as the bronzed beach baby does not age into baby bottom soft skin miraculously at age 40! Don't panic though. It's not too late. It is possible to transition from bronzed babe to English princess. It takes time and a little bit of help from us. All very achievable.
