In my job I come across so many women, women who take really great care of themselves and I am a true believer of the importance of ageing naturally and gracefully without going under the knife. Ageing gracefully is about having a healthy body and being emotionally healthy. Aging well, keeps you feeling good about yourself and your life. Having an interest in yourself, caring for yourself and looking after yourself. If you take care of yourself and take interest of yourself, you will age gracefully. We all want to look great as we age. I talked to many women who follow this natural process and I am going to write down what they all had in common. So what's the secret?
We are so conscious of sun damaging our skin, it can do the same thing to our hair. I am sure we have all noticed that our beautiful shiny hair loses its shine and looks a bit frizzy and dry during summer months. The UV rays of the sun really heat up the hair shaft and cooks the hair shaft making coloured hair looking worse. If you really don’t look after it your colour can have some serious fading. UV rays does the same thing to all hair types. If you are a swimmer, the chlorine in the pool can remove all your hairs natural oils. Salt water from the ocean draws water out of your hair and skin. Dry hair soaks up the extra humidity in the air, making the shaft to swell and leading to breaks in the cuticle. Hair puffs up and results in dry and damaged.
The good news is we can keep our locks looking shiny and healthy through the warmer months. Just need a bit more love and looking after.
