You’ve reached the big 5-0, congratulations! Along the way, your skin has been through a lot and has changed from what it was in your 20’s. With that being said, you shouldn’t stop your antiaging, and skincare routines. At your age, it is very important to continue with what is working with your skin, and revise what isn’t.
You may notice more fine lines, and some deeper wrinkles starting to settle in. No need to panic, there are many treatment options available. Women often think layering on heavy makeup is going to conceal any fine lines, sun spots, and any skin dryness, but it does the exact opposite. So here are some tips to help you look and feel your best at age 50 and above.
We must continue to moisturize our skin! This is essential. When our skin is moisturized, it looks firmer and plumper, helping to have a smoother appearance. When our skin is dry and dehydrated it accentuates any lines or texture, think of a raisin vs. a grape. You’ll want to switch most of your skin care to oil-based products to hydrate it. There are many oils to choose from including some that fix dryness, acne, rosacea, discoloration, wrinkles and even oily skin. Oils are a lady’s best friend.
Continue to exfoliate regularly. Aging causes everything to slow down, including cell turn over and the production of collagen. Exfoliating helps to remove any build-up of dry skin and reveal the younger skin underneath.
This tip isn’t a skin care tip, and it’s often overlooked by many men and women alike. We all get set in our ways with clothing, accessories, and hairstyles. These items can make your whole look dated. So, make an appointment with your stylist and lighten up your hair; adding a few face-framing highlights. Also, cutting some layers will lighten up your locks and give your hair more bounce. Update your makeup look by wearing light reflecting products. If you wear foundation, invest in one that has a glowing finish, this will brighten up your overall look. A lip gloss over a lipstick or a cream blush instead of powder are all great options as well.
Now let’s get to the antiaging procedures that are available to you if you want something a little extra. There are so many options you’ll want to make an appointment with your dermatologist to find out what is best for you before choosing.
With all the new technology and products available, looking and feeling your best has never been easier. From antiaging lotions to procedures, there is something to help you achieve your desired look.
