In life, there are few things that are certain—but for each of us, the inevitability of ageing is something that we will all experience.
In basic terms, ageing can be categorised as either intrinsic or extrinsic. While intrinsic ageing is dependent on factors such as our genetics and the natural way our body ages as our cells decline and deteriorate over time, extrinsic ageing is determined by our environment and lifestyle practices—such as our stress levels, whether we choose to smoke, our exposure to toxins as well as our diet—which can all influence and impact how quickly our cells are damaged. And this is where prevention is always better than cure!
But biologically speaking, there are also certain health and wellbeing concerns that many of us will require extra support with as we age as normal functions begin to slow down—our body’s ability to maintain a healthy microbiome declines, collagen production slows, cellular turnover is less efficient and our bones become weaker and less dense so we require more bone health support as well as thyroid and hormonal wellbeing support. And this is why I decided to create GLOW AGELESS which is specifically formulated for those aged 50 plus and contains all the same incredible skin, hair, nail and gut health benefits of our bestselling GLOW Inner Beauty Essential—with the addition of some powerful nutrients and herbal extracts which target these specific age-related concerns.
Here’s everything you need to know…
GLOW AGELESS Supports Thyroid Hormonal Health
As we age, our hormones (which are critical for our overall wellbeing and vitality!) shift and decline—with some hormones metabolised more slowly, while others are simply produced less or at a slower rate than they were at a younger age. This is why GLOW AGELESS contains iodine (derived from kelp), which is necessary for the normal production of thyroid hormones, as well as traditional hormone-supporting herbs such as maca, shatavari, grapeseed and pine bark which have each been selected for their ability to nurture our hormonal wellbeing and balance.
GLOW AGELESS Supports Bone Health
Until the age of 50, our bone health and bone density remains fairly stable—but as we age, there tends to be a gradual and progressive decline. While this is a normal process, we can support our bone health with GLOW AGELESS as it contains nutrients like magnesium—which supports both bone health and structure—as well as vitamin D (in the form of shiitake mushroom), which is also critical for bone health.
GLOW AGELESS Supports Energy
Like our original GLOW Inner Beauty Essential formula, we wanted to ensure that GLOW AGELESS also supported sustained energy—which, let’s be honest, can be trickier to maintain as we age. In this formula, we have included naturally-occurring B vitamins such as 25% of your daily RDI of biotin and niacin, which helps to reduce feelings of tiredness and fatigue as well as magnesium which is also great for energy!
GLOW AGELESS Embraces Ageing
When coming up with a name for our new formula, we determined that GLOW AGELESS was the perfect fit as we want to inspire and empower our community to embrace the process of ageing by being gutsy and glowing at every age! While the beauty industry is undoubtedly packed with products that speak to ‘anti-ageing’ we wanted to change this dialogue as we believe noone should be defined or limited by their age and that it’s never too late to start a new career, find your creativity, dance, dream, be inspired, try something new, look after your health or have glowing, healthy skin and feel energy in abundance! At The Beauty Chef HQ, our mission has always been to help inspire you to be the happiest, healthiest version of yourself possible—and GLOW AGELESS has been designed to do just that. We hope you love it as much as we do!
