Changing the way we think about aging should start with how we talk about it and Allure is putting that into action with doing away with the term Anti-Aging…..
According to Allure.com:
If there’s one inevitability in life, it’s that we’re getting older. Every minute. Every second. Language matters. When talking about a woman over, say, 40, people tend to add qualifiers: “She looks great…for her age” or “She’s beautiful…for an older woman.” Catch yourself next time and consider what would happen if you just said, “She looks great.” I’m not going to lie and say that everything about aging is great. We’re not the same at 18 as we are at 80. But we need to stop looking at our life as a hill that we start rolling uncontrollably down past 35. (And if it were, who determines the pinnacle? Is it our sexual prime? Is it the point at which most other people would consider us hot? Or is it utterly in our own heads?)
I hope we can all get to a point where we recognize that beauty is not something just for the young.
