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

Physical Sunscreen vs. Chemical | Which Is Better?

By Amy Takken, RN / June 30, 2016

Physical Sunscreen? Chemical Sunscreen? How do you choose? These days something as simple as choosing a sunscreen can be very confusing. There’s too much conflicting information. For example, the Environmental Working Group’s 2016 Sunscreen Guide advises against using oxybenzone, octinoxate, and other chemical sunscreens. But Consumer Reports found chemical sunscreens performed better than physical sunscreens: “In four […]

By Amy Takken, RN / August 3, 2016

Medications can cause dark spots. Some medications cause dark spots called hyperpigmentation.

Lynn thought they might be from taking the pill, but she wasn’t […]
