Is Curiosity The Key To A Youthful Mind And Body?

As the saying goes ‘You’re only as old as you feel’… so what’s stopping us feeling fabulous forever?!

While the basics of maintaining a healthy yet youthful complexion are the same, we each have our ageing concerns linked to ethnicity, lifestyle or environment that require specific treatment. As we grow older, our beauty habits often change – we may need to cover up a few new lines and hide a stray grey or two. Ageing is an inevitable part of life, but more and more women are curious to find beauty secrets to enhance their natural features and keep their skin looking youthful for longer.

Mindset is vital – your attitude to life and how you feel

Ageing is considered as a biologically determined process generally associated with inherited characteristics, according to Mary Lupo, a Clinical Professor of Dermatology.
But surely, you’re only as old as you feel, right? While the cliché may be true, Social Psychologist Ellen Langer has spent decades testing the theory and has come back with some fascinating conclusions regarding the relationship between curious mindsets and ageing.
In the so-called “counterclockwise study, Langer argues that our thoughts can affect the ageing process. “Counteract negative stereotypes for ageing or health”, says the renowned psychologist. “Pay attention to what is new. Refuse to be merely a number or statistic”. The study led Langer to conclude that the mind has enormous control over the body. We are all unique and feeling a state of mind not only determines psychological well-being but includes your attitude to life and how you think.

Woman freely enjoying life

At 48 years old, Jada Pinkett Smith is confident in her skin. Given her celebrity status, you may assume her wrinkle-free complexion is thanks to a complicated and expensive skincare routine at an A-list salon; however, her anti-ageing secrets are much simpler than you would expect. She told today: “My mother keeps such a youthful mind and spirit. She’s young at heart. She takes really good care of herself. We both do. “Eating well, exercising and drinking water. We’re both really on it.”

Jada prefers a more natural look. She reveals: “Even on makeup days, I try to go light. I do a lot of steam on my skin. On days off, I use hardly anything. I try to give the skin a break. Less is more.”
