When it comes to taking care of your aging skin, it’s difficult to know where to turn for advice.
Sure, there are plenty of companies who would be more than happy to sell you their latest expensive cream, but, how do you know which ones actually work?
Until recently, I had sort of given up on my skin. I felt, well, I’m 60-plus, I have wrinkles and sun damage and nothing can make those go away. I did my usual: cleanser, toner, moisturizer, and didn’t give it much thought.
Good skin care is always important, and especially so once we reach 50 and beyond. One of the many ways in which you can start caring for yourself is by taking care of your skin. You know it’s the largest organ in the body, right? If you’ve never really taken care of your skin, now is the time to start.
The best thing you can do on a cold day is light a scented candle and snuggle cosily in your bed with some good books and a hot cup of your favourite tea while the snow falls outside your window, creating the most beautiful scenery.
It’s amazing to me that, even when someone takes a positive aging stance, their views are framed as “anti-aging secrets.” This was exactly what I thought this morning as I watched an interview with Jane Seymour on the show This Morning.
When the weather begins to cool (and you’ve stopped reminiscing about summer and evenings by the beach), you’ll usually find that there’s actually quite a lot to look forward to.
There are many good things about being over 60. Feeling more confident in your own skin is one of them.
While you will still want to look your best, the days of fretting about the size or shape of your body are behind you. Beauty, like wisdom, comes with age. Those aged over 60 can still enjoy their favourite beauty regimes to help them look and feel great and shaving is a big part of that.
So, how should shaving for women over 60 be approached?
By the time we reach our 60th birthday, most of us are perfectly comfortable in our aging skin. We have even learned to embrace, or at the very least accept, our wrinkles. At the same time, while we may be comfortable with our bodies, we still want to look and feel our best.
In a recent interview with celebrity makeup artist, Ariane Poole, I sat down to discuss how to embrace positive aging, while keeping our aging skin as healthy and vibrant as possible. I hope you enjoy the show!
For most of us, dryer, thinner lips are an unavoidable part of the aging process – not to mention a telltale sign of our advancing years! In spite of this, they’re also often the most neglected part of even the strictest beauty regimes – through dehydration, sun exposure, and wind damage, our lips’ protective barrier thins out with age, and a chapped texture leaves lines and wrinkles looking yet more noticeable.
The good news is that it’s possible to relieve the dryness, flakiness, and soreness of chapped lips. Read on for our useful guide.
