Why I Never Say the W-Word

How your thoughts and beliefs about the word "wrinkle" are aging your skin

In the early days of creating Dressing Your Truthh, I did a lot of research about how the psychology of fashion and beauty has negatively affected us as women. In my study, I looked for words used for decades that had a negative reference to our body and appearance.

One of those words that I vowed to never use in my Dressing Your Truth content is the word “wrinkles.”

I made that decision back in 2013. But in the years since, I’ve seen many women who are prematurely aging themselves look for support by focusing exclusively on the word “wrinkle.” That word turns up invasive solutions that either lead women to pay up or give up. I wanted to offer women more affordable, natural support to create healthy skin, especially if they were seeing wrinkles as problems. That’s why my skincare line includes the Wrinkle Recovery Serum. I’m walking proof that you can help your skin recover from damage—and you can recover from talking about your skin having wrinkles!

In fact, I remember the A-ha I had the day I realized that every skincare company pitches their products using a young, attractive Type 4 skincare model with porcelain skin to convince me to buy their product, with the hope I would have skin like hers.

It was a freeing moment to realize that my Type 3 skin would never look like hers—nor did it need to for me to be beautiful!

I realized that day that I needed to accept the skin God gave me, work with it to keep it as healthy and vital as I could, and it would never be porcelain! Rather, it would be beautifully dynamic, expressing more texture and deeper lines and creases!

How do you talk about your own skin?

I don’t know a woman who has ever said, “I love my wrinkles,” or “Oh, good. I am getting more wrinkles!”

There is nothing wrong with getting older and aging—we are aging every day! But no woman wants to age faster than she needs to.

I always say, growing older is inevitable. But how you age is a choice.

Your words and vocabulary make a difference! How many times have you referred to the lines and movement in your face as wrinkles?

We have been taught that any lines we naturally express in our faces (true to our Energy Type) are BAD, and we need to correct, eliminate, or hide them in order to be beautiful. But it’s not true! We’ll feel more confident by accepting and caring for our unique skin, rather than trying (and failing) to turn it into something it can never be.

The words I choose to use instead

I refer to skin features using accurate words with a more neutral reference:

  • Facial lines
  • Deeper creases
  • Texture
  • Movement

The truth is, as we mature and age, we all will have more facial lines, movement, and deeper creases in our face and other areas of our body. Some of us more than others.

I invite you to swap out the words you use in your vocabulary. When you look in the mirror, please see the great character and beauty your face expresses, true to your Type of beauty.

Care for your unique Type of skin

In accepting your unique facial movement, learn to take care of your skin so it maintains its vitality and health.

I spent 10 years researching and learning how to restore my skin’s health. For me, it was never about eliminating my lines or trying to have porcelain skin—it was about aging in a way that felt positive and correct for me! During those years, I personally used dozens of different products and spent thousands of dollars to find what works. (And what really doesn’t!)

It’s been worth all the time and money because now—at age 63—I have remarkably healthy skin.

And the best outcome of all my research is that now I can help YOU.

I’m thrilled to share with you my anti-aging product line.

A common belief about growing older is that you’ll just have to accept having wrinkles. But I don’t believe that. In fact, I have gone deep into my programing and removed thoughts and beliefs about aging that don’t serve me. This extends far beyond wrinkles and how my face looks. I cleared many limiting beliefs about growing older that I didn’t even realize I had! That’s why I created the Healing Plan for Anti-aging to help you do the same.
