As I age (I just turned 50), I have come to realize that I look and feel better now than I did in my 30’s. Yes, I was younger then. My cheeks were fuller and my butt was firmer. But somehow, I wasn’t all that well put together. Could it have been the wrong haircut? Or the wrong wardrobe? Maybe. But I think it also has to do with something I lacked then but have lots of now —confidence.

I may no longer possess the youthful looks of my 20s and 30s, but the confidence and wisdom I now have surely make up for that. Don’t get me wrong, I still care about looking good, and I still love a compliment. But the way I go about looking good now is completely different than in was in my 30s. I’m more relaxed about it —more realistic— and, in all honesty, I actually think I look better than before.

There are so many amazing women out there whom I admire. While I'd love to be as successful or as beautiful as they are, I accept who I am. I have found what I’m good at and I’m able to stretch those skills to the max. I have complete flexibility, and I’m not trying to be someone I’m not. I can reach my dreams on my own terms and nobody else's.

At 50, I’m able to take myself less seriously. I can laugh at myself, and I can accept others laughing at me too. At 50, I don’t get upset if I try 20 swimsuits and not a single one looks like I thought it would when I picked it up. At 50, I can turn down a lunch invitation if it doesn’t sound fun, and I don’t have to pretend to keep up with everyone’s promotions or new homes. This is me, this is who I am, and realizing this has been extremely liberating.

How Do You Exfoliate Your Scalp?

Many women feel reborn in their 40s and beyond, and exfoliation can bolster that renewed energy feeling. After all, through exfoliation, we literally buff away dead skin cells while making room for new ones to shine. This renewal-through-scrubbing has become a perpetual component of our face and body’s daily or weekly skincare regimen. Nevertheless, many of us forget that the scalp that anchors our hair is made of skin, too.
