What are the most visible changes that happen to your body as you get a little older? If you are like most people, you probably said, “wrinkles.” Or, you may have thought about the difficulty of keeping the extra pounds off after 60.
We affectionately call our wrinkles “laugh lines” or even “roadmaps of our lives.” Recently, it’s become popular to say that we should just accept our wrinkles as a natural part of aging.
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.
As the founder of Sixty and Me, I am often asked to review or endorse anti-aging products of all kinds. So far, I haven’t found a single anti-aging product that I really believe in. Part of the reason is practical. I just don’t think that these products work “as advertised.”
When I met with professional makeup artist, Ariane Poole, to discuss fall colors for 2015, we both agreed that we love autumn. Even though we both appreciate the warmth of the summer sun, autumn has a special power. As the leaves turn from green to gorgeous orange and brown, we have the opportunity to experiment with new makeup styles.
Most women I know love to spend time outside, doing sports, sunbathing or just hanging out. Unfortunately, our aging skin is the first thing to suffer from our fun in the sun.
If you believe what you see on TV and in the movies, fashion for older women is all about dull colors, covering up and “dressing your age.” What nonsense! It’s absolutely true that some shapes go better with certain body types, but, for the most part, fashion after 60 is all about choosing clothes that express your personality and make you feel great.
Fashion trends have never been a huge priority for me. I am really a bit of a beatnik. Style is a different matter altogether. Like many women, over the decades, I have been seduced by hats and scarves and have always enjoyed putting things together in a way that communicated my personal style.

For decades, or centuries even, fashion has been a young person’s game. In a way, this makes sense. Not only were young people the ones with the most disposable income, but, retirement, was seen as a time of aging gracefully, not dressing fabulously.
Oh how the tables are turning! For starters, older women are now one of the most desirable consumer groups. In addition, far from fading quietly into the night, women in their 50s and 60s are embracing fashion and makeup and living life to the full.
