The Beauty of Aging

The Beauty of Aging

Women have another option. They can aspire to be wise, not merely nice; to be competent, not merely helpful; to be strong, not merely graceful; to be ambitious for themselves, not merely for themselves in relation to men and children. They can let themselves age naturally and without embarrassment, actively protesting and disobeying the conventions that stem from this society’s double standard about aging. Instead of being girls, girls as long as possible, who then age humiliatingly into middle-aged women, they can become women much earlier – and remain active adults, enjoying the long, erotic career of which women are capable, far longer. Women should allow their faces to show the lives they have lived. Women should tell the truth.’
Susan Sontag - The Double Standard of Aging (1972)

I love the simplicity of the NeoLife Nutriance range, the products are Certified Organic and Vegan. Best of all is that you use so little and it makes such a difference. I have dry skin and my skin is so moist :)
