Do You Feel Unseen? Is this the truth about ageing?

I recently had a heartfelt chat with a lovely customer who shared that now she’s older, she feels overlooked by society, almost as if she’s no longer worthy of attention. This really struck a chord with me

How many of us feel this way as we get older?

When we stop getting noticed or receiving compliments, it can make us feel less beautiful and less worthy. I’ve heard from other women who feel invisible now that they’re older.

This makes us very sad.

At Reluminate Beauty, we are committed to changing this. Our mission is to help women feel beautiful, confident, and special at every age. We’re all about embracing and celebrating every stage of life.

Embracing Age with Confidence and Grace

Age empowerment is not just a buzzword; it’s a movement. It’s about redefining what it means to age and embracing the wisdom, experience, and beauty that come with it. Here are a few points to consider as we navigate this journey together:

1. Celebrate Every Milestone

Each year brings new experiences and memories. Instead of dreading birthdays, let’s celebrate them as milestones of wisdom and growth. Age is a testament to all the challenges we’ve overcome and the lessons we’ve learned.

2. Self-Care and Wellness

Taking care of ourselves becomes even more important as we age. This includes not just skincare but overall wellness. Eating healthy, staying active, and nurturing our mental health are crucial. Reluminate Beauty offers products that cater to mature skin, ensuring you look and feel your best at every age.

3. Positive Mindset

How we perceive ourselves affects how others see us. Embrace a positive mindset and wear your age as a badge of honor. Confidence is attractive, and it radiates from within.

4. Role Models and Inspiration: Follow and engage with women who inspire you. For instance, Karen, at 68, refuses to be invisible. She says, "I will be who I want to be, and wear what I want to wear. Age will not dictate anything to me, and I will not be invisible, even if society thinks otherwise. My athletics and art make me feel alive and truly seen."

5. Community Support

Surround yourself with a community that uplifts and supports you. Share your experiences and learn from others. Christine, another wonderful customer, shared, “Ageing is only a number. I love your statement: ‘Reluminate Beauty will make it our mission to see every single glorious woman regardless of their age and recognize and inspire them to embrace their natural radiance and rewrite the narrative of ageing.’”

6. Visibility on Social Media:

Social media can be a powerful tool for staying visible and connected. One lady I follow, who is 57, documents her life on social media. She’s funny, clever, and very real. Despite facing challenges, she refuses to be unseen. She said, "I could get off social media and stop sharing my life with others... BUT I REFUSE TO BE UNSEEN."

A Conversation Worth Having

This brings us to an important conversation: As we age, do we really become 'unseen' by society? I feel very seen by my family, friends, and colleagues, but is society at large overlooking us?I certainly don't have all the answers, but this is something that’s been on my mind. I would LOVE to hear your thoughts.

Join the Conversation

As we age and get past a 'certain age,' what is the truth about ageing? How can we ensure that every woman feels seen, valued, and beautiful?

At Reluminate Beauty, we are dedicated to seeing every single glorious woman regardless of their age and inspiring them to embrace their natural radiance and rewrite the narrative of ageing.

What are your thoughts on this? Do you ever feel unseen as you get older?

Let's continue this conversation and empower each other to embrace the beauty and strength that come with age. Share your stories, your thoughts, and let's make sure that no woman ever feels invisible.

    I felt really unseen and disregarded at the birthday parties of my grandchildren as I did not know their friends or the parents. First time I felt old

    Hi Loretta,
    I feel very seen by the staff in establishments I frequent, but sometimes feel very unseen , unfortunately by my direct family.
    Special occasions such as my birthday, Mother’s Day, Easter, Christmas etc., Seem to just come and go as if I am not here
    I get text messages and phone calls, but it is very rare that any of them come to visit me on these special occassions.
    I have seven children, two daughters and five sons, all adults now and left home with lives of their own. I understand that life is busy these days, work and family obligations, but I have always been there for all of them – anything they need and always will be regardless.
    I know they all love me very much, they tell me all the time and if I ever need anything, they do not hesitate to send it to me. Sometimes it would just be nice to see them in person occasionally – especially on special occasions.
    Sometimes I just feel like I am invisible to them and that my needs/desires are secondary to theirs – although I know that is not the case.
    I am 62 now and life is moving so very fast.
    Sometimes I think too myself – one day I will not be here and then they will not have to worry about me at all.
    Don’t get me wrong , I know I am loved and would be missed if I wasnt here – but as the old cliche says – It is to late when we are gone.
    Sometimes I feel guilty that I do not visit them much, but my partner has terminal cancer which has now gone to his brain, so a lot of my time is spent caring for him and running around to his many appointments and treatments/tests.
    Anyway, this is just I feel at times, don’t know if this helps you any, but I do hope so
