We are so grateful for inspiring women in our community, like Karen, who share with us their unique perspective and wisdom.
Read on to learn about Karen's thoughts on embracing natural beauty...
Embracing, rather than fighting
"To me [embracing natural beauty] means 'embracing' rather than fighting. Taking care of what I've been given."
Karen talks about how we spend so much time, energy, and money fighting the aging process. It's not worth the mental stress!
Instead of fighting this process, embracing our age, and everything that comes with it, requires an "attitude change"...
It's more about taking care of ourselves, not fixing or changing our natural beauty. (This is why Karen has let her hair go gray!)
"I know that I'm taking good care of myself as I age. I'm doing the best I can with what I have, and that's so much easier and better than fighting. It's so freeing, really!"
Along with the attitude change, Karen believes taking care of herself is an important part of embracing natural beauty. This includes physical, mental, and spiritual nourishment.
At Sole Toscana, we like to talk about how self-care allows us to give the best of ourselves to others.
Proper skincare is an important part of that self-care. Karen shares how using Sole Toscana's all-natural products helps her know she's taking good care of her skin. She's not worried about drastically changing her appearance. Instead, she's focused on taking care of herself with skincare she knows is clean and will improve the health of her skin.
Beauty on the inside
"In my interactions with people, I think what makes them beautiful to me is what's on the inside."
Embracing natural beauty goes beyond appearance. It's a multi-faceted concept that includes what's on the inside.
Karen talks about how beauty from the inside really comes through when people smile and their face lights up when they talk.
At the end of the day, how we treat and embrace others brings out our beauty from the inside.
Now is the time to change our perspective on aging. "Embracing, rather than fighting" all aspects of aging and our natural beauty will lead to a more fulfilling and complete life. We can do this with proper self-care and focusing on what's on the inside, as this matters most.
