Mother’s Day; Top Skin Care Tips Every Woman Over 50 Should Know
Aging poorly is one thing that bothers every woman. We spend so much money and time trying to prevent ourselves from looking older.
Even though the popular saying goes that mothers know best,we’ve got the best beauty tips for every mom above the age of 50. So, this Mother’s Day, let your skin and that of your mum radiate and glow again like it used to be during your youthful days.
All of the tips mentioned are very easy to do everyday to make sure your skin stays bright and beautiful for several years to come. Remember to share this article with your mum; it will make a great addition to her Mother’s Day gift.
#1: It is important you know your skin type
This is one mistake that confronts most women; they are not aware of the type of skin they bear until they are being faced with reactions from certain skin care products. When such reactions occur, that is when you will realize how important it is to invest in a comprehensive fine skin analysis to know your skin type and skin profile. One good thing about knowing your skin type is that you will be using the right skin care products for you, hence adding more life to your skin cells.
#2: Always stay hydrated
Drinking plenty of water is a great way to keep your skin hydrated and healthy looking. Whether you feel thirsty or not, make it a habit of drinking plenty of water daily. Don’t substitute water with any other fluid.
However, when you shower, don’t forget to watch your water temperature. When the water is too hot, it will suck the moisture right out of your skin, leaving you with dry skin which is prone to wrinkles.
#3: Wear sunscreen every day
I know you have heard this over and over again, but if there is one beauty rule I would tell every woman, it is to wear a decent sunscreen every day. Sun exposure has a great damaging effect on the skin. It is the number one cause of wrinkles, brown spots, and skin cancer.
However, remember that not all sunscreens are created equal. Go for a sunscreen that can block UVA and UVB rays and one that is at least SPF30 (Of course, SPF50 is heaps better!). Sunscreen won’t clog your pores as long as you cleanse your face at night, so make a habit of using it daily, and reapply throughout the day.
#4: Make sure you have the right cleansers and moisturisers
It is essential you choose the moisturisers, cleansers, and a skin care routine that works best for your skin type. If you don’t know what your skin type is, you can schedule a consultation session with us at CE Skin Aesthetics.
If you have oily skin, then, I will say you are among the lucky ones. Studies have confirmed that oily skin are less prone to wrinkles and fine lines. If you have sensitive skin, consider testing all your products on your arms or neck before using them. That you once loved a skin product years ago doesn’t make it right for you now that you are older because as we age, many things change. Those lovely products of yours can now cause redness on your skin if you use them.
Also, as we age, our skin suffers a downtrend in cell turnover and oil production, especially after menopause. Which may leave our skin dryer than it used to be years back. So choose the best moisturisers to help keep your skin supple and cool.
#5: Find an oil you love
Oils are fast becoming one of the hottest trends in the skincare world. Everyone is talking about their lovely oils, their favorite aroma, and what works best for their skin types. Many people, just like me, are into oils and serums because they tend to glide on smoothly and leaves your skin feeling plump and dewy.
There are several face and body oils that are amazing for your skin; the list is just endless. So, experiment with a few of them to find the one that best works for your skin and style.
#6: Exfoliation is a must
The truth is that as we age, it is important to regularly exfoliate. The outer layer of the skin is full of dead skin cells which tends to thicken as we age, so it is important to exfoliate to reveal the fresher skin under those cells. On a weekly basis, exfoliate both your face and your body. Do it more often during the cold winter months when the skin gets dry, flaky, and itchy. Endeavor to use a dry brush to exfoliate before you take a shower because it is much easier for moisturisers to go smoothly on the skin when it is exfoliated.
#7: You can try anti-wrinkle and dermal filler injectables
The obvious truth is that anti-wrinkle and dermal fillers are great ways to reduce the signs of wrinkles and fat loss in your cheeks. Anti-wrinkle has the potential to lift your eyes and makes you younger and more awake while it also smoothens the smile lines that etch themselves in along your eyes. Dermal fillers will plump up your cheeks and some women also plump up their lips with them too. If you are considering this option, don’t forget to book a consultation with one of our practitioners at CE Skin Aesthetics.
