Sometimes I look in the mirror and think, “OMG, I have so many more lines under my eyes than I had ten years ago.” But one second after that, I ask myself, “Do I want to go back ten years just to have younger skin?”
My answer is a most definite NO.
I’m happier right now, and I feel more secure emotionally and financially than ten years ago. I have two Amazing little kids, and I have a marriage that friends tell me they envy.
I have a beautiful home. I’m doing a job that I’m passionate about. I have lovely people helping me every day with my business, and I didn’t know them even one year ago. I’m not saying that my life is perfect. Our kids make our home a mess 100 times a day. I have financial challenges, and I don’t always agree with my husband, but at the end of the day, I’m a happy person. I adore every moment of my life.
And these lines reflect how much effort I’ve put into my life and my experiences along the way. One of the lines is from the two years that I was far from my husband during his residency, one is from the anxious night before my pharmacy board exam, and a big one is from the day I learned my father had colon cancer.
Without these wrinkles, I couldn’t be who I am. These wrinkles make me gorgeous! These wrinkles have transformed me into the most beautiful and happiest woman in the universe.
I firmly believe your under-eye wrinkles have done the same for you. Aging is the process of making you bold and beautiful. That’s not to say I don’t value caring for my skin. However, to me, beauty is more about how you feel than how you look.
Skin “care” is about doing something that makes me feel good. Knowing that my skin is healthy, glowing, and protected, makes me feel confident. Applying a little blush for that sun-kissed look (whether for that important Zoom call or just because) makes me feel healthier.
I care about what goes into and on my body. I create and use skincare with only the purest, most exquisite and high-quality ingredients. Let’s revisit those pesky eye wrinkles: I use only my 100% Natural Phyto Reparative Eye Balm. The Eye Balm’s key ingredients are squalene from France, Cupuaçu butter from the Amazon rainforest, raspberry seed extract from Chile, French amino acids, and green tea seed oil from Japan.
By using only the nature’ purest ingredients, I can be confident that the wrinkles around my eyes that I earned by having lived a full and happy life are being protected and treated gently and effectively. You can have that same confidence!
