Let's talk beauty.
It's a bit of a taboo to speak openly about the fact that we all age and along with our youth-addicted-society comes an increasing wish not to. I'm 20 with only a few dimples to count as wrinkles, so you might ask, why on earth I'd bring a subject like this up. Well over summer, being reunited with a television again at mum and dad's, it came to my attention, that the pursuit of beauty and a youthful appearance through unnatural means such as botox is increasing and the consumers are getting younger and younger. Honestly, I was mortified.
I'd like to think, that when wrinkles start appearing on my face, they'll be a souvenir of the fact that I have and am living my life, and didn't conceal my emotions. However, it's far from everyone who feel this way, and I feel it important to try and bring awareness to alternative methods in keeping a healthy and youthful appearance, no matter what age you are.
Just after my surgery in January, I got to know Violetta Jepsen, who has become an incredibly dear friend to me. She practices craniosacral therapy which has helped me in my recovery, but she is also the Danish representative for Revitonica - a natural method alternative to botox with visually proven effects on achieving or maintaining a youthful appearance. She herself describes it as face-fitness - exercises you get taught so you can keep your face in shape. She showed me befores and afters of her clients, and these beautiful girls and women were all transformed in the way, they themselves wished to be. All the areas, where they could have turned to botox, but instead chose to go with a method, they could maintain themselves naturally.
And to outline my message guys, don't panic ever. You're beautiful the way you are.
LOTS OF LOVE
