Ageing’s a weird thing. It kind of creeps up on you and then BAM! suddenly there’s a wrinkle you never saw before, or you start to notice your neck looking weird in photos if your head’s not quite at the right level, or you have to hold the book a little far away to get the letters in focus (obviously none of these have actually happened to me. Cough). Mr E is older than me so we always had a bit of banter about him being the old and crinkly one, but recently, I’ve been noticing a few of these little tell-tale signs, and although I won’t be rushing off to get Botox or Spanx or anything, I want to take care of myself as much as I can.
I make a conscious effort to stay active (the dog is a life saver for this – come rain or shine we have a good old stomp around the field every day to blow the cobwebs away) and we eat a wide range of meat, fish, pulses, fruit and veg (plus obviously lots of cake – a major food group). I’m picky about looking after my skin, choosing good quality products, and I visit a good hairdresser regularly to look after my hair. So what else can I do?
Well, quite a lot, apparently. Seven Seas contacted me to tell me about their new Perfect7 range, I was immediately interested. I’m too lazy to take a ton of different vitamins every day for this, that and the other, so I’ve never really done more than take the odd fizzy vitamin C tablet when I’m under the weather. Perfect7 is a unique blend of marine oils, rich in Omega-3, and key vitamins and minerals especially formulated to provide benefits for women in 7 key areas:
1. Skin and nails
4. Brain function
7. Hormonal activity
Perfect7 contains natural source marine oils to help maintain normal heart and brain function (Seven Seas have been researching marine oils for over 70 years), plus vitamins and minerals to help contribute to reducing tiredness and fatigue.
And for the outside, Perfect7 Woman provides nutrients to help maintain normal skin and nails (I’m especially interested in this as my nails are awful – they’re flaky and break really easily) and Biotin for hair (another worry point for me, my hair is really fine and I could do without it getting any finer!)
And what about Mr E? Well, it’s obvious that men and women age in different ways, which is why Seven Seas has developed two distinct formulations for Perfect7: Woman and Perfect7 Man
So I’ve undertaken to take Perfect7 for a three month course, to see how it makes me feel, and to fight those signs of ageing from the inside. Because at the end of the day, age is just a number, right?
