Self-Care: The Secret To Aging Gracefully

“Wow! You don’t look your age.”

Those were the words 42-year-old Melissa, a friend of the Collagen Lift Paris team, heard at the liquor store a short while ago.

Dressed in jeans, a casual jacket, and with no makeup on, she thought the cashier must just be trying to be nice when he asked for her ID, but he did a genuinely surprised double-take after scanning it.

What is Melissa’s secret to looking young enough to get IDed?


What does self care mean?

Despite what social media might say, self care isn’t about treating yourself to massages and bubble baths or buying an expensive latte instead of your regular coffee order. Sure, that’s part of it, but self care is far more than that.

Quite literally, self-care means taking care of yourself: specifically, your health, inside and out.

Once you know the real definition of self care, it makes complete sense that self care is the best way to ensure you age gracefully.

You already know most of the ways you should be taking care of yourself: exercise regularly, hydrate, wear sunscreen, get regular physical checkups, eat a balanced diet…

The problem is, sometimes those things aren’t things you want to do.

How can you prioritize self care?

Self care isn’t about making perfect healthy choices every single moment. Sometimes, getting the expensive latte or taking a day off to veg on the couch instead of going to the gym is what you need to take care of your mental health.

But it is important to recognize that ultimately, taking care of your health should be a priority – and sometimes, that requires a little extra motivation.

Think of how you want to feel and what you want to look like in ten years. Every time you want to avoid an aspect of self care, think of that version of yourself. To be that version of yourself, you must prioritize your health!

Is there something simple you can do to prioritize your self care?

Absolutely! Take a daily dose of liquid collagen.

Liquid collagen not only helps restore and renew skin, hair, and nails for a youthful glow, it is full of other health benefits too. As the single most abundant structural component in your body, collagen is critical to skin, hair, nails, joints, muscles, and many other areas at a cellular level.

Prioritizing yourself, your health, and your happiness is the easiest way to age gracefully and look timelessly radiant.
