The Body Positivity activist has embraced the beauty of aging!

The 42-year-old musician revealed the power of time in an interview with The Cut.

Alicia Keys finally sheds some light on the inherent beauty of aging and the magical powers of each passing year.

Keys also believes that growth makes one “more conscious” and “aware” of themselves and the environment.

“I love getting smarter. I love being more conscious. I love being aware of what I think. I love being in touch with what I think and being comfortable knowing that what I know is the right thing for me, that I don’t have to seek so much validation from everybody else to decide if that’s a good thing for me or not,” Alicia Keys shared.

Reflecting on her early days in the music industry, the “Diary” singer acknowledged the evolution of self and love.

She said the adventure shed light on her reliance on an “armor” of makeup, complicated hairstyles, and trendy attire to feel satisfied.

According to Alicia, this realization prompted her to question, “What’s underneath all that?”

“I think it was just the awareness of how much we subscribed to social standards of beauty, and I didn’t really think of that before. I just hadn’t thought about it.”

She said this profound revelation inspired her decision to go makeup-free in 2016, her commitment to authenticity and self-acceptance.

In a previous conversation about her lifestyle beauty brand, Keys Soulcare, Alicia Keys said she brought makeup back into her life on her own terms, adding that nobody can determine what beauty is to her.

According to her, “you become more beautiful as you grow older” because “your heart opens wider,” blessing you with an intensified strength and quality.

Through her journey, Alicia Keys continues to inspire others to embrace personal growth and one’s sense of true self-worth.
