Aging is hard… but it happens to all of us.  Today I’m sharing my thoughts on aging gracefully.

Thanks for Neutrogena for sponsoring this post and allowing me to get personal about my beauty routine with you.

Hi everyone!

I wanted to stray a little of course of the traditional Fashion Friday and talk a little about something that weighs on my mind more than I actually care to admit… aging.  Specifically my thoughts on aging gracefully.  It’s a subject I’ve touched on a few times as I’ve talked about getting older and finding lasting beauty.   It’s crazy how quickly the years pass and one day you wake up worrying about your skin tone, wrinkles and sprouts of gray hair.

I know there are readers of all ages reading this… but at any age it’s something most of us women have on our mind in one way or another.  You blink and wake up in your 30’s it seems.  <— cue the Kenny Chesney song

This might sound crazy, but I feel like one day out of the blue I started noticing my smile lines.  It was like they popped up out of nowhere.  I remember showing the Hubs like it was some big shocking revelation and he laughed and said they were always there.  He proceeded to show me his favorite picture of me at our wedding and pointed them out.  I even think they retouched this photo a touch.

He said he loves them and he wouldn’t change them at all.  It was probably a good thing he said that because that day I was more than ready to head to the doctor for some needle intervention.  It’s crazy how something so superficial as wrinkles can cause us so much worry.

My point is that it happens to everyone.  As the years continue to tick off, I’ve started to come to terms with it and realize I am lucky… wrinkles and all.  One can only hope that their life has been filled with enough joy to get smile lines and wrinkles.  Mine certainly has.

For now, I’m choosing to age gracefully.

(Although I reserve the right to change my mind in the future!  I totally believe it’s a women’s prerogative to age the way she wants!  And I am not judging if you choose a different path)

Now, just because I’m aging gracefully that doesn’t mean I’m not doing anything at all about my skin and not taking care of it.  It just means I’m not at this point using more drastic measures.  I have a routine and would love to share it with you!

thoughts-on-aging-gracefully-80-7

When I had the opportunity to work with Neutrogena on this blog post, they asked me to do a 7 day trail of their infamous Rapid Wrinkle Repair anti-aging skin care line.  I had to write them back and say I’d love to share this with my readers BUT I can’t do a before and after photos of a trial because I already use these products religiously.

From the moment I picked up Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair at the store years ago, I’ve been hooked.  I’ve bought a lot of tubes over the years and these seem to be the only that actually worked.

thoughts-on-aging-gracefully-69-5

Because of that,  Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair is in my bathroom.  I love this line because it includes a good dose of  Accelerated Retinol SA, which is the #1 Dermatologist recommended anti-aging ingredient.  It helps fight aging by allowing your surface skin to renew more often… therefore looking younger and fresher.   Accelerated Retinol SA is better than just Retinol because it is able to penetrate the skins surface even better.

The lines includes Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Night Moisturizer which works wonders.  If you were to just buy one, I’d get this one.   There is also Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Moisturizer Broad Spectrum SPF 30, Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Serum AND Neutrogena Rapid Wrinkle Repair Eye Cream.  You can pick up all of these at CVS!

They are all clinically proven to reduce wrinkles, fine lines, tone and texture.  All things I have 100% noticed when using the product.  No, this doesn’t get those really deep smile lines, but it makes a profound difference in my skins texture, smoothness and fine lines.

thoughts-on-aging-gracefully-42-2

The other anti-aging products I keep close-by are Neutrogena Ultra Sheer Sunscreen.  I keep these bottles in my purse, car and travel bags.  They are awesome because they feature dermatologist-tested Helioplex Technology.  I find them at CVS too!

As we all know, exposure to UVA rays can lead to premature fine lines, deep wrinkles and uneven skin tone.  Between running, hiking and being obsessed with the beach I am always in the sun’s rays.  I know I can’t reverse sun damage, but I can prevent more from happening.  This stuff works on my fair skin wonderfully.

I love it for day to day wear because it has this really nice water-light texture spreads easily over skin, absorbing instantly for an invisible, weightless feel.  It also provides an even, non-shiny finish that works beautifully alone or under makeup and moisturizers.  So it doesn’t really FEEL like you are wearing a bunch of sunscreen.

thoughts-on-aging-gracefully-66-4

As I mentioned, I believe it’s never too early to start using these products.  I wish someone had shown me the way a long time ago!

Make sure to keep reading because at the bottom you have the chance to win ALL of the products mentioned in this post!!!! Woo-hooo!

So here’s my mug.   We’ll call this the after shot.

thoughts-on-aging-gracefully-163-11

No, it’s not the same as a decade ago but I’m ok with that.  I’ve learned a lot along the way and if given the choice I’d wouldn’t give back the smile lines for the years and adventures.

One of the most important lessons I’ve learned… true beauty, grace and wisdom comes from within.  Life is good, wrinkles and all.

    I’m so bummed I missed this giveaway! You are a beautiful representation of aging gracefully Julie – I honestly have no idea how old you are, but you just glow! So when you talk about a good anti-aging skin routine, I’m certainly reading it. I’ve been wondering about going back to good old Neutrogena. It was a part of my original “skin care routine” so many years ago.

      Thank you so much! I’m 37 :-). For some reason I hate even typing that, which is ridiculous! I LOVE their creams and think they have really helped me. Start with the night one and add the others.

        You’re too funny! Smart that you are looking at skincare now, but I definitely wouldn’t think of 37 as an age where you’d even discuss “aging gracefully”! You look amazing – no need to worry!

    I’ve found using a moisturizer with Sunscreen every day and a good night cream has helped my skin.

  9. Emily October 9, 2016 at 8:27 pm - Reply

    Hmm… So I feel like this might be a bit unconventional, but I try to not wash my skin too much, because here in Colorado, it’s so dry, and I struggle to keep my skin moisturized if I wash it too much. At the same time, I try to find moisturizers that will moisturize my skin without just making it greasy.

    Most of all, I love your smile lines Julie; they speak to your joy!

    I’ve been aging pretty gracefully, but the crows feet are starting to bug me! I’m 34 and got told a few days ago that I don’t look old enough to have a 9-year-old. Score! Definitely going to be trying out the Neutrogena products!!!

    I always make sure to use sunscreen in the sun AND when it’s cloudy. The UV rays are still there! I also love to buy lotions and chapsticks with SPF in them! 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

    I use sunscreen whenever I am going to be in the sun for prolonged periods of time. I TRY to be consistent with a skincare routine but not always as successful!

      It is hard! I’m def not perfect with it either, but I do the best I can.

    Its funny, I told my husband the same thing about wrinkles a few days ago. He said what I have are laugh lines, which is a whole lot better than having frown lines. I do use some facial creams t address the fine lines but I am not really that concerned about them. I would love to try this Neutrogena line too. They always have great skin care products. Oh, and BTW, I would rather not be called “old,” because I am not old. I am experienced. 🙂

    • JulieWunder October 10, 2016 at 8:50 pm - Reply

      So true!! I’d much rather have laugh lines. I don’t think I’ll have call myself old… always young at heart!

  14. Ali October 8, 2016 at 10:54 pm - Reply

    I Always use sunscreen and wear sunglasses when out in the sun. I met a lady one time who was around 70 she looked so much younger and her skin was flawless she told me to use Vaseline every night before bed. I been using that I hope it works like it did for her.

    • JulieWunder October 10, 2016 at 8:49 pm - Reply

      I’ve heard that before too! I wear sunglasses all the time, so maybe I’ll be good!

    Girl, you look amazing! Although I’m only 17, I can relate to this topic. When I was in middle school and my body was changing into a young lady, I didn’t like it. But, overtime I realized that this is my body and it’s the way it’s going to be. I might as well love myself for all I am; perfectly imperfect. Our bodies are amazing things that we take for granted at times. It’s time we appreciate them <3

    You look great love!! And I couldn’t agree with you more, aging is a natural process and we shouldn’t be scared of lines and wrinkles it just shows that you’ve lived!!

  17. Esther October 8, 2016 at 4:41 pm - Reply

    Neutrogena was the very first brand of face wash I used YEARS ago! I still like their products, but I don’t use them as often as I probably should. Haha
    You are so right that laugh lines are part of life. I would rather have a face full of happy lines than to age with no wrinkles at all.
    My go-to tip is to also stay hydrated and eat well (things I am sure you do too). I def can tell in my skin if I am off with my eating and hydration.
    Fun giveaway!

    I swear by neutrogena products. THey are simply the best for skin. Also you are gorgeous!

  19. You are so beautiful–I think you will age without a problem! No interventions needed! I just watched a movie, Joy, starring Jennifer Lawrence and I couldn’t help but notice that her forehead was as smooth as a baby’s bottom. It didn’t look natural to me. I like a little bit of lines in a woman’s face. But at 54, I’m feeling more like a road map!

    Coconut and rose hip oils have been my go to anti aging products I turn to these days. Theses seem to do the job and really brighten my skin. I’m always willing to try new things though. I’m now curious if Neutrogena would do a better jog?. This would be a great giveaway to win. Thanks YOU for sharing.

    • JulieWunder October 8, 2016 at 4:53 pm - Reply

      I use both of those too actually and love them. I really think the retinol is worth adding. It makes your skin smoother and get the lines in ways the oil doesn’t.

    Such a great topic… one that weighs heavily on my own mind. I’m turning 35 next year so I am overly aware of the gray hairs, and new wrinkles. Some days I deal with it better than others but, like you, at the end of the day I’m just glad I’ve had so much laughter in my life that I have those laugh lines and crows feet!

    I’ll take ageing gracefully and LIVING over injecting my body with chemicals and having crazy surgeries every day!

    I have a very “expressive forehead” (we shall call it!) and my Mum has always said “don’t scrunch your face like that – you’ll end up with wrinkles” – but I always tell her that I’d rather retell stories and have conversations with passion than be wrinkle free and boring 😉

    I think aging gracefully is more of a mental matter than a physical one. As far as appearance go I have oily skin which has left my skin looking pretty young in my opinion.

      It’s never too early to start! I wish I could have in my 20’s with the retinol.

    I have seen you regularly since you first began working
    at WLOS. Beautiful then and beautiful now. Aging gracefully
    for sure. Speaking of your years at WLOS, I’m watching the
    coverage of Hurricane Matthew. Whew !

      Thanks Blane! I’m glad to be safe, warm and dry in the mountains and not out in that.

    The Neutrogena Rapid Repair Night is fantastic. Also, I play golf and wouldn’t go out on the course without putting on Neutrogena sun screen. People are always amazed when they find out my age; they think I’m much younger.

    I’m 62 years old and I agree that avoiding the sun when possible and using a good sunscreen when you are out in it helps prevent skin damage and aging. I also have never smoked and that makes a difference in your skin. Exercise is also very important because it keeps the blood flowing and seems to plump up the skin.

    I use some products to help reverse sun spots. I was not so good to my skin in my high school and college years, but now I’m all about the sunscreen. I haven’t really considered any wrinkle products though, but have started noticing my eyes get heavier, especially when I’m stressed at work. And I love smile lines 🙂

    The smile lines are less important than the smiles.

    I honestly have been looking at something to take now to help prevent wrinkles. I need to take better care of my skin! I’m checking into these for sure. I would say sunscreen is my best tip, and one that I still don’t do religiously.. womp womp ha! Thanks for the giveaway!

    Luckily I have very good “genes”! People are always amazed when I tell them my age (57) and that I have 3 grandchildren. After years of blistering my skin in the sun, I stared using Neutrogena sunscreen products and absolutely love them. My husband will even use them, which is a blessing, he works outside year round.

    I’ve used the ‘best of the best’ and now that I’m “older” I truly believe you don’t have to spend a fortune to keep your skin looking the best it can be. Thanks Julie. I’m going to give your skin care line a try. Have a great weekend and keep smiling. ?

  55. I do love the Neutrogena products. I can certainly be better at sun protection myself. Aging has not been easy for me but I am doing my best to stay healthy and in shape and young.

    I remember noticing my laugh lines about the same age you did. They are a bit deeper now at 55, but they still remind me of just how happy I am to have smiled that much!?
