Women's worst fear after 50--it's not what you think

Women's worst fear after 50--it's not what you think

Conventional wisdom might say a post 50 Woman's biggest fear is wrinkles and looking old. Sure we want to look our best, but, over and over I read women feel invisible and unimportant once they are over 50.  It isn't a gut-wrenching fear; it's more an observation. Bigger fears are attached to health and money.

 Biggest fears: Health and not having enough money 
for retirement
My own query on facebook, resulted in these answers. I asked, "What is that single nagging worry that has the potential to haunt your sleep and overshadow your generally positive outlook on life?"
"Financial insecurityI have some fear around continued good health as well, and do what I can to foster that in my life. The financial stuff, well, lots out of my control but am doing what I can and trusting God to provide." Allison, CA.
 
"Health...and not being able to afford treatment if something happens. Since I cannot afford insurance for the first time in my life." Chrisy, VA
 
"One of mine is health too. Now having osteoarthritis/osteoporosis due to cancer treatments I worry about lack of mobility in the future." Adrienne, CA.

"Any major medical issue will cause financial issues. I think many of us have this concern." Kathy, NY
 
Fear Busters!
 
Fear buster - More than ever, women after 50, are staying employed longer.
Part-time employment, or volunteer work to keep active and healthy. Finding a position that aligns with your values is a bonus.

Fear Buster - Stash - put as much money as you can into your 401K and other retirement plans. Find a trusted financial planner whom you can work with for the long term. A financial planner can help us with our "life plan" and make sure we stick with it.
Fear Buster - Cut the cord: stop helping your adult kids. Put money into your retirement fund first, and then the college/wedding fund.

Fear buster - Consider launching a new career - Women over 50 can get back in the work force, even after raising children or caring for aging parents.  I began Parisian's Pure Indulgence at 50!
 
Fear Buster - Look into Long Term Care Insurance. None of us want to be dependent on others, do we?

We can't let fear control us.  Above all, let's do whatever we can to stay healthy, save for retirement, and enjoy life.  We all have concerns about aging--they can either motivate us or cripple us.  As my friend Allison says, "Do what you can, and then trust God, who is ultimately the one in control."

We all know our skin ages, sometimes faster than we would like. There are two main reasons our skin ages known as Intrinsic and Extrinsic aging. 

Intrinsic or Genetics - contribute to how fast we age. Most of us show signs of aging in our late 40's to early 50's. 

Extrinsic or External Factors - These include environmental, free radical sun damage, and stress.

Free radical and sun damage accounts for 90% of early signs of aging. Seriously, it's that high!

See what people are saying!


My skin is glowing
It’s been almost two weeks since I started Retinol treatment. Wow, what a change, my skin is glowing! I’m noticing fine lines disappearing. I’m so impressed with all Parisians products but this is by far my favorite ~ Lynda F. CA

Great Product!
I have been using the Peptide Line Diminishing Eye Gel for several months now and have noticed that my eyes appear brighter and less “tired”. The puffiness is less and the skin under them is brighter. ~ Jeanne M. NC

Great for sore muscles/joints
Serenity Premium CBD Gel works for me! Highly recommend for relief from sore or strained muscles! I have an old ACL injury that acts up from time to time and this quiets the aches quickly. Smells nice without being too strong, too. ~ Connie M. HI

Platinum C gets a "A" from me!
I started using PPI's Platinum C about a year ago when I decided to dump the toxic department store brand from my beauty regimen.The Platinum C meets and exceeds my expectations and has kept my skin texture smooth, even and yes - YOUTHFUL!! The same type product in department stores would have cost me almost double what I pay for PPI. ~ Nicole R. CA
