Did you know that Cindy Crawford, international model, film and TV personality and one of the best known celebrities in the world, is the wrong side of 40?
To look at that flawless skin one wouldn’t think it; but she is in fact all of 43! The 5 foot 10 inch model is quite forthright about her age and the fact that she looks great for the age that she’s at.
She is equally as candid about her flaws, such as cellulite, which she cheerfully admits to having.
It’s all in the hair she says: “You can get any plastic surgery in the world, but hair color is what enables women to look younger longer. I’ve also become more aware of hair health…I give myself a hair treatment when I’m in my sauna to keep it conditioned.”
In fact, when you think about it, what is it that you notice first about a person that causes all important first impression to form? Sure it is the skin, the posture, the clothes and gait, and yes it is the hair! Shining vital hair in a young color is something that instantly gives the impression of youth and liveliness.
And this doesn’t mean that one gets hair color that is inappropriately young either; it is about getting something that is appropriate and about all it is about looking after your hair well.
Maybe some occasional pampering with a professional treatment and a good diet and exercise means that you can help your hair keep the years at bay! Crawford finds that sauna hair treatments work for her locks!
Age gracefully; accept that things will change: “Basically, I take care of myself, but I don’t want to be obsessive. And I don’t want to not like who I am today. I’m all for fighting the good fight, but I don’t care how much you work out or how much cream you put on—things change.” So take care of your skin by all means but do stop short of becoming obsessive!
According to Crawford her skin is better now than when she was younger when she had oilier skin, and bigger pores leading to pimples. As she has aged she has found that her skin looks better than ever since it is now less oily. Her skin benefits from microdermabrasion treatments that she gets as well.
While sadly we weren’t born with her genes, we could take some pointers from her and hope to keep age at bay!
