REFLECTIONS OF, THE WAY YOU USED TO BE
(I hope you sang that)
Has it happened to you yet? It happens to all of us. WHEN it happens just depends on genetics and our lifestyles. For me… I was about 33. I woke up, got out of bed.
It was just another ordinary day. I looked in the mirror and…
<’Agggggggghhhh!’… insert ‘Hitchcock-Psycho-style-scream’ here>
‘Um… When the heck did THIS happen? I’ve got more lines than Movie World! I mean, I know, the very wise, Jimmy Buffet, once said, ‘Wrinkles will only go where smiles have been,’ but I hadn’t realised I’d smiled THAT much over the past 33 years!
On the upside, it appears I’ve been pretty DARN happy!
I had a decent poke at my face and a good think about this ‘new’ me – that obviously hadn’t just popped up, but had been morphing into itself over time - I’d just been too busy to notice… And decided, ‘I’m going to grow old gracefully! Naturally…’ and immediately made an appointment with ‘Doctor Google.’
Miracle creams, injectables, homemade remedies, lifestyle tips… you name it. It was all there on the world-wide web. After weeks of online investigating there was FINALLY something that caught my attention. Something easy, affordable, tasty and SMART! It was the ever powerful, BONE BROTH!
I knew that bone broth could work wonders on your gut – was jam packed with nutrients and goodness… but had no idea that you could use it as an anti-ageing elixir!
<Cue the angelic choir… ‘Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh!’>
I know what you’re thinking at this point, ‘how on Earth can bone broth affect the ageing process?’ I honestly asked the same question. The answer? COLLAGEN!
We all know that our skin is jam packed full of collagen when we are babies – and that over time, as we get older – it breaks down. Naturally, without that original plumpness behind it, skin starts to wrinkle and begins to go saggy. What we might not all know is that when the bones in bone broth are cooked for the lengthy periods that they are, the collagen within them (more commonly known as gelatine) breaks down into a form that we can consume and is beneficial to our hair, nails and skin! So, gelatine rich bone broth, when consumed every day really can play an integral role in the pursuit of more youthful looking skin. Done right, it can improve skin elasticity and help keep skin smooth and virtually wrinkle free.
Collagen is a wonderful thing – but it should be noted that bone broth also contains a long list of other nutrients that can help us maintain a more youthful appearance. With a mega mix of protein, magnesium, calcium, glycine, proline, glucosamine, chondroitin and hyaluronic acid – the rest of your body benefits as much as your skin, hair and nails!
Now, if you’re anything like me, the news that we can perhaps ditch the fifteen boring steps of night creams, eye creams and wrinkle creams before bed… and even bin the flyer that’s been hiding in the back of the cupboard since you considered injectables that one time – and simply consume bone broth once a day as an alternative – you will be overjoyed! Personally? I did a little happy dance…. And I’m not ashamed to admit it.
The magic part of all of this – the cherry on top, if you will, is Broth of Life’s dehydrated, organic bone broth. It makes an awesome solution EVEN EASIER! You don’t have to dedicate hours upon hours to cooking up your own bone broth, you don’t even have to worry about spilling it if you’ve bought it! Nope. You can simply purchase the dehydrated version, at an amazingly affordable price, re-hydrate it when you need it – AND you don’t even have to leave the house. Simply visit brothoflife.com.au, place and order and you’re on your way to a skincare solution you can really smile about!
By consuming bone broth once a day, I have my ‘pre-bedtime’ time back. I can read books and actually switch off… I have lost the fear of what I might wind up looking like or what it might cost me if I give in to the lure of injectables and I can confidently say, that although I am getting a little bit of help, I AM ageing NATURALLY, GRACEFULLY, HEALTHILY and FABULOUSLY – and that? Well, that’s something I’m genuinely proud of.
