Sometimes, later in life, we just need a boost to help restore our confidence and for an I MATTER reminder. This is exactly what Anne Reizer’s new book, Beautiful Encore: Makeovers for Mature Women, does.  I asked Anne to tell us why the message, I MATTER, is important later in life:

“Confidence is illumination for the mature woman.  It sets her apart.  It is the vital ingredient for successful maturity .  
A very basic step in either adding to or regaining our confidence is taking adequate care with our physical presentation. ” Looking good is not a superficial endeavor!  It leads to engagement and success in other facets of your life…….it helps us project confidence and reinforces how we want to be perceived.”  Many mature women seem to default to a form of simplicity in their appearance, which they know is not working… “When appearance becomes an afterthought, it quickly becomes no thought.”

The importance of personal presentation-  our visual language- is not lost on women. We intuitively know that when we have taken time with our exterior, people are interested in what we are about.  We  feel stronger, stand taller and are more apt to join in a social occasion.  In our mature years we are too seasoned to think that life is only ups and never downs- but one of the fastest ways to regain a positive attitude is use our brains and discipline to look our best. 

Looking our best is not simply makeup and hair:  it is healthy living , a capacity for joy.  But periodically, we need to return to basics and take an honest look and not default to nonworking simplicity.

BEAUTIFUL ENCORE: MAKEOVERS FOR MATURE WOMEN is a book to inspire women over 50 that ‘looking sensational’ is within reach .  Each of the 27 models let talented hair and makeup technicians change their outdated looks.  Afterwards they sparkle! The  eleven health and beauty  articles, written by Dr.s and professionals, focus on the needs of women past 50.”
These women are very inspirational (see one before and after picture above).  It is a book about specifics from healthcare to wardrobe care.  One of the ladies said this,
“For me, a realistic intention for aging gracefully is a positive, grateful, forward-thinking approach to life and a belief in the inherent worth and dignity for all people.”
The women in this book understand in order to do more, you must begin with I MATTER.  Order Anne’s book HERE.  Then go enjoy all of the blogs of the Thursday Blog Hop!
