We watch our parents age, we watch our friends and family age, and we think we know what to expect for ourselves. But aging can look different for everyone.
If you are spending your energy worried about all the things that could potentially happen to you as you age, you will experience unnecessary anxiety. Aging education is full of myths, and we’re here to dispel those myths and ease some of your anxieties.
Myth #1: Wrinkles are irreversible
If you have fine lines and wrinkles from sun damage or frown lines, you might think it’s too late to reverse those signs of aging.
That is false.
With the right products, you can diminish fine lines and wrinkles naturally. You don’t need to turn to invasive procedures or surgeries to make a change in your skin health.
For example, Fièra Cosmetics designs products specifically for mature women. With Fièra Cosmetics products, you can elevate your skincare routine and watch the wrinkles slowly disappear.
Myth #2: You’re “too old” to try something new
Many adults think that they are too old to learn a new activity, dress in a new style, or rock a new haircut. That is FAR from the truth!
If you want to try something new, do not stand in your own way. There are so many resources available online and in most communities to teach you new hobbies that you’ve always wanted to try.
Likewise, if you really want to wear a certain style of clothes, don’t stand in your own way. Wear what makes you feel beautiful, do your makeup in a way that makes you feel confident, and style your hair in a way that makes you feel comfortable. As they say, age is but a number.
Myth #3: You should avoid physical activity
As you age, it is incredibly important to increase your core strength. Having a strong core will help you with mobility, health, and wellness. Without good core strength, you are more susceptible to increased damage if you do injure yourself, especially when it comes to back problems.
Likewise, getting a bit of cardio every day is incredibly good for your heart health, blood pressure, mood, and energy levels. Make sure that cardio is still a part of your daily routine as you age, and don’t be afraid to start if you haven’t tried it before. Ask a friend and hold each other accountable by going on daily walks together.
Myth #4: You will lose your independence
This is a very powerful myth that keeps people very fearful of aging. The topic is incredibly vulnerable and still rather taboo. You might fear the inability to drive, the inability to live alone or to dress oneself. That is a valid fear. But truthfully, independence is a mindset. If you liberate yourself from the confining factors associated with independence, you can begin to experience a whole new concept of independence that does not change with age. It is an independence that focuses on love, kindness, gratitude, and hope.
Fièra is for You
Where do all these myths about aging come from? The unfortunate reality is that some companies benefit from your insecurity.
So much of the beauty industry stands to gain your business by convincing you that your age is a flaw that needs to be remedied rather than a natural part of life for everyone, and even a privilege.
But here at Fièra we want to fight against that.
Aging is not something to be fixed, it’s something to be celebrated.
And as women get older, they deserve to feel beautiful, and they deserve products that are made for them.
We don’t make products that are supposed to fix you or change you- we make products that enhance your natural beauty to make you feel comfortable and confident.
