Your Face & Hair Are Ever Changing Because Beauty Evolves Over Time.

As we grow from child to adult, our bone structure changes. Our face evolves. And so does our taste. What we once found beautiful and motivating becomes less so. Fashion changes. Styles change. And we find new ideas and people who inspire us to become better.

If we don't change, we don't grow. If we don't grow, we aren't really living.  - Gail Sheehy

As we move through life, we see pictures of ourselves and wonder at the changes. How does the time move so quickly??

But we can be beautiful at any age. We've learned so much about aging that now how you age is up to you!

Nature gives you the face you have at 20. Life shapes the face you have at 30. But at 50 you get the face you deserve.  - Coco Chanel

Fortunately, there are many ways to make sure you like the face you "deserve at 50." There's sunscreen and good skincare. There are skin treatments like Botox, fillers, and micro-needling. There are facelifts and hair restoration. (We're learning more about regrowing hair every day!) And if none of those are your cup of tea, there's exercise, eating right, beauty sleep, and possibly collagen supplements.

I guess what I'm trying to say is this: The world is your oyster! You can meticulously maintain your natural beauty - no matter what your age. OR you can enhance it. But therein lies the beauty (no pun intended!)! The choice is yours. And truly, isn't celebrating your beauty and feeling that inner, quiet confidence what it's all about?

Make the best choice for you! And be the very best you!

So without further ado, below you'll find some articles about ways to maintain (or enhance!) your face and hair. I hope they help! And be sure to check out our Body and Wellbeing categories!

Thanks for reading! And good luck!  - Amy Takken, RN & Founder, Masterpiece Skin Restoration

The Keratin Lash Lift vs. a Lash Perm | Which Is Better?

By Amy Takken, RN / June 10, 2018

Oh, to have long, curly lashes  . . . If you’re anything like me, you LOVE long curly lashes. But I don’t have them. Latisse gave me long lashes, but they’re still straight. (It’s very anticlimactic!) How can someone like me – with curly hair – get straight lashes? It just doesn’t make sense! I’ve used an […]

Botox vs. Baby Botox | The Differences & How to Avoid a Frozen Face

By Amy Takken, RN / March 3, 2018

Photo courtesy of Unsplash & Marina Vitale. Botox vs. Baby Botox Gone are the days of the “frozen” look when Botox was new.

Microblading Eyebrows | How to Find the Best Brow Artist

By Amy Takken, RN / September 4, 2017

Skinny eyebrows were HOT in the ’90s, but it’s not the ’90s now. Every decade seems to have its own iconic look. Remember how popular Madonna’s signature “Like a Virgin” look was in the 1980s? Drew Barrymore became a big deal in the 1990s. Everyone wanted brows like hers. And remember Pamela Anderson of Baywatch fame? She had […]
