5 Tips for Looking & Feeling Young at Any Age

I’ve teamed up with Olay for today’s post on staying youthful as the years go by. Throughout the past nearly five years, since I started this blog, I have chronicled the various beauty products and treatments that I have tried in my quest to stay “forever young”. While all of my beloved lotions, blushes, glosses and polishes have been a big part of that journey, it has evolved into a lot more.

Below are some of the things that have been central to my journey of looking and feeling my best at any age.

Embracing the small moments – Finding pleasure in small moments has helped me to be more focused on life’s journey rather than always looking to the next milestone moment. Cocktails at home, family game night, viewing fall foliage and helping my daughter bake brownies are more enjoyable than I thought possible.

Staying active – As someone who works from home and spends the majority of my day attached to my laptop, it would be entirely too easy for me to settle into a sedentary lifestyle. I make a point to put an appointment on my calendar to remind myself to exercise every day (or at least most days).

Keeping my skin fresh and healthy – Every beautiful makeup look starts with healthy, glowing skin. As much as I love playing with cosmetics, I always strive to have skin that is healthy and smooth enough that I don’t feel like I need makeup. Olay products have been part of my beauty routine for as long as I can remember. My new favorite is Olay Regenerist Luminous Tone Perfecting Cream Moisturizer. A true multi-tasker, it provides long-lasting hydration while brightening, smoothing and reducing the appearance of dark spots.

Indulging every once in a while – I’ve reached the unfortunate realization that eating the way I did in my 20’s is not sustainable from a health and fitness perspective. I’ve also discovered that depriving myself of the occasional indulgence (gelato, anyone?), is not good from a mental stability perspective. Enjoying a treat here and there is good for my soul and also for those in my immediate vicinity.

Seeing the world – The wonder of learning about new cultures, seeing historic monuments and different landscapes always renews my spirit.  Experiencing places that are different from where I live brings out a level of curiosity and discovery that I thought were long ago buried deep under layers of adult responsibilities.

I’m looking forward to the new year and discovering what other ways, small and large, that I can make my life journey beautiful every day.
