Aging Gracefully with Dr. Pearlman

Posted | 0 comments

On Wednesday evening, we attended the second seminar hosted by Dr. Jennifer Pearlman at her clinic. The focus of the discussion was on the physical effects of aging on your appearance and the steps you can take to age in a graceful and healthy way.

The discussion highlighted how the aging process affects us physically over time and how hormonal shifts in our body such as menopause, can dramatically affect our appearance. The key takeaway was that it’s incredibly important to take care of your health, since it directly translates to your appearance.

  • Easy tips for skin care that we took home were:
  • The importance of drinking lots of water and eating plenty of colourful vegetables with high levels of antioxidants.
  • Always protect your skin from the sun throughout the entire year, not just the summer months!.
  • Manage your daily stress levels.
  • Quit smoking. Smoking can age your skin prematurely by up to 10 years, which means if you’re in your fifties there’s a good chance you’ll be looking closer to your sixties!
Dr. Pearlman and her staff also covered a variety of topics and options on how to look youthful, but not over done with cosmetics.  She introduced us to a new line of make-up developed by celebrity make-up artist Michael Marcus. The goal of this new  line of make-up is to help women age gracefully while looking their best. All of the  products in this line are paraben free (paraben is a chemical preserve found in many beauty products such as shampoos, shaving gels and make-up) and all production is environmentally responsible. There was even a make-up artist on hand who demonstrated the benefits of each product and provided make-overs!  We loved that each of the colourful lipsticks, eye shadows and foundations were named after women who were a source of inspiration to the line’s creator.

 

After Dr.Pearlman’s presentation, many of the attendees shared their own personal stories and anecdotes, some funny and some serious, on how they began to noticed the physical changes in their appearance as they aged. They shared what beauty solutions they had all tried in the past and what was working for them now.  It was enlightening to hear from women of all ages in different stages of their lives, comment on their own personal experience with aging, and how they all found their own way to age gracefully.
