With aging women tend to spend more time analyzing their skin, body, and mental health. Beauty and body care routines become more vigorous and targeted to deal with mature skin issues like:
- Loss of the skin’s elasticity
- Wrinkles on the facial skin and the body
- Effect of pollution resulting in dry papery and flaky skin
- Muscular mass reduction
- Hair loss
- Discoloration or patchy spots on the body
Using specifically designed products for older women, mature ladies can regain their body confidence, slow down the aging process, revitalize their body and mind.
What is the best skin care routine for older women?
- Good skin care always starts with cleaning.
Mature facial skin needs gentle care and the best way to start your daily beauty regime is by cleansing the skin with micellar water for mature skin. Micellar water doesn’t require a lot of rubbing effort thus, reducing the pressure on mature skin, preventing further deepening of facial and neck wrinkles.
- Moisturising the skin
This is essential for aging skin due to the skin’s tendency to dehydrate as a result of the aging process. Older ladies should use anti-aging products with retinol which is known to reduce the appearance of skin discoloration, hyperpigmentation as well as stimulating the collagen produced by the body. Retinol helps reduce the appearance of facial and neck wrinkles.
- Makeup for women over 50’s
Beauty brands designed a lot of makeup products that are suitable for mature ladies. These products are infused with minerals and vitamins and keep the moisture locked into the skin. There are primers, mineral foundations, or BB creams suitable for women over 50’s. Also, bronzers, blushers, anti-aging mascara, and lipsticks.
Gentle massaging the body whilst applying a good quality body cream or lotion will stimulate the blood flow. For improved skin elasticity, women should use a body lotion with Vitamin E. This vitamin will improve the skin’s aspect, heal scarring and lock the moisture in for a longer period of time.
Aging results in hair loss and dullness due to loss of shine (reduced moisture). Using hair products infused with antioxidants, minerals, and vitamins, reinvigorate the hair and restore its volume.
Hairstyling might seem a big task sometimes however, there are products that can help with this without adding too much weight on the hair. For example, using a volumizing powder, a dry shampoo or a hair pomade for women can improve the hair’s aspect. The hair looks fuller, defined with added shine.
Keep the body well hydrated during the day. Older women will need to increase the amount of water drunk during the day. A great way to keep the body well hydrated is drinking tea or antioxidants drinks, bringing the necessary amount of minerals and vitamins to keep the whole body in good functioning form.
- Have a balanced diet
A healthy diet containing lots of greens and fruits, followed by fibers and healthy oils, will support the body in fighting against aging. It also maintains healthy skin.
- Maintain an active life
Going out for daily long walks together with a friend or a companion pet will boost the immune system, maintain your muscles in good form and improve mental wellbeing.
Being older doesn’t mean you lost your beauty. Your face and body tell the world about the life you led and everyone should feel happy in their own skin. Maintaining a well-balanced lifestyle has favorable effects on the skin, body, mind, promotes cell regeneration, and helps you lead a long and happy life.
