Married to Medicine Star Dr. Contessa Metcalfe Shares Her Top Tips for Staying Healthy During National Healthy Aging Month.
It is never too late to find a new career, hobby, or passion or too late to take care of oneself. September is National Healthy Aging Month, a time to focus national attention on the positive aspects of growing older. The idea is to inspire and offer practical ideas for adults aged 45 years and up so they can improve their physical, mental, social, and financial well-being.
HOW IMPORTANT IS IT TO TAKE PREVENTATIVE STEPS
It is never too early or too late to incorporate preventative products into a beauty routine. Developed with dermatologists, CeraVe Skin Renewing Eye Cream helps minimize visible signs of aging around the delicate eye area. The lightweight, hydrating formula features three essential ceramides, caffeine, and a peptide complex to strengthen the skin barrier and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles for younger, healthier looking eyes. CeraVe Skin Renewing Eye Cream is available at drugstores and Amazon for under $25 dollars. For more information, visit www.CeraVe.com.
RECOMMENDATIONS FOR HEALTHY AGING SKINCARE
The skin is the largest organ, so it is important to take care of it. Olay Body recently launched the Fearless Artist Series, a new collection of three new body washes that deeply hydrate to nourish, restore, and balance skin. The collection includes rich ingredients like Cocoa Butter, Aloe and Vitamin C. It comes in beautiful bottles that were designed by African American artist Avery Williamson. Plus, a diverse team of women scientists developed the hydrating formulas. Olay Body is elevating body care and women of color in art and science with this collection.
