We know that true beauty comes from within, but who says we can't look our best as well? This blog post is dedicated to all of you who want to embrace your age while still looking and feeling amazing. And guess what? So, get ready for some valuable tips, a few fun recipes, and a whole lot of attitude that says, "Hey, 50 is just the beginning of even more wonder and beauty!"
Let's start with the golden rule: Wear sunscreen every day!
Yes, we've heard it a million times, but trust me, it's worth repeating. Nothing damages our skin more than the sun's harmful rays. They're not only the main cause of skin cancer but also responsible for those dreaded brown spots and wrinkles. So, here's the deal: Choose a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 that blocks both UVA and UVB rays.
Now that you've found the perfect sunscreen, remember these three things:
- Rain or shine, wear it daily. UV rays can penetrate through clouds, so make it a habit to protect your skin every single day. And don't worry about it clogging your pores; just cleanse your face before bed.
- Reapply throughout the day. Renowned dermatologist Patricia Wexler insists that all women, regardless of their skin tone, should reapply sunscreen regularly.
- Don't forget your hands! Dermatologists can tell a woman's age not just by looking at her neck but also her hands. So, slather on some sunscreen to keep those hands looking youthful too.
Make Sure You Have the Right Cleansers and Moisturizers
Next up, let's talk about the importance of choosing the right cleansers and moisturizers tailored to your skin type. If you're blessed with oily skin, consider yourself lucky as it tends to develop fewer wrinkles. However, if you have sensitive skin, it's crucial to test new products on your neck or arms before applying them to your face. What may have worked wonders a few years ago could now cause redness and irritation.
Now, let's address the issue of dry skin. As we age, our skin produces less oil and experiences slower cell turnover, especially after menopause. So, here's how to combat dryness:
- Say no to hot water! It strips your skin of its natural oils. Opt for lukewarm water or even cleanse your skin with a gentle cold cream.
- Use a creamy cleanser formulated for dry skin, but you don't have to splurge on pricey brands that only stay on your face for a few minutes.
- Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Invest in thick, moisturizing creams and oils. Apply them before bed and in the morning before applying makeup.
- Consider adding a product with hyaluronic acid to your skincare routine. It's a hot trend right now as it effectively plumps up the skin and helps it retain moisture.
- Don't forget to exfoliate. Dry skin tends to be flaky, so exfoliate once or twice a week using gentle alpha hydroxy acids that work well for most skin types.
- Extend the moisturizing love to your body too. Avoid drying soaps in the shower and opt for creamy body washes. Afterward, moisturize with drugstore creams or oils like extra virgin coconut oil and almond oil.
Hydra-V offers 24-hour dryness prevention even in cold weather and features HA3, a revolutionary compound delivering simultaneous multi-level hydration. This soothing moisturizer includes a highly effective skin repair complex, which contains a patented ceramide complex to help restore the skin barrier for less irritated skin, also preventing moisture loss.
Find an oil that fit you
Speaking of hot trends, let's talk about face oils! They're all the rage in the skincare world and for a good reason. Oils are natural, glide on smoothly, and leave your skin feeling plump and dewy. Experiment with different oils to find the one that suits your skin type best.
Now, let's tackle the aging process head-on with the power of exfoliation. As we get older, our outer layer of skin thickens, and exfoliating becomes essential to reveal fresher, more radiant skin. So, make it a habit to exfoliate your face and body at least once a week, or even more often if your skin feels dry and flaky. A dry brush can work wonders before showering, as it allows moisturizer to penetrate more effectively.
