Skin Sense for The Great 40s and 50s
Skin renewal slows down to 23-25 days at this age. Fine lines and more mature skin become more prominent.
Ageless Beauty Tips for 40 to 50
- Relish the reality that eventually, you have accepted who you are.
- Skin gets thinner. Moisturize your eyes prior to applying eye shadows.
- Have a look out for color changes and uneven skin texture. Hide what you don't want to show.
- Use a cotton ball or sponge to mix foundation evenly.
- If your skin is dry, start using a moisturized foundation. A custom made foundation is certainly worth the investment.
- Albeit, most sun damage is done prior to the age of 18, a sun protection cream is very necessary to keep off the sunspots and wrinkles.

Ageless Beauty Tips for 60+
- Excellent moisturizing and hydrating are necessities.
- Eye makeup should be decent, rather than dramatic. Use light shades and matte colors.
- Foundation coat needs to be lighter. Facilitate a moisturizing foundation also.
- Use slight loose powder. The drier the skin, the more it reveals.
- A pink-based powder will deflect the light. This will offer a soft-focus influence, accurate for softening lines and wrinkles.
- Experiment with shape and polish of your sculptured brows.
- Sun protection is requisite.
Some Other Ageless Beauty Tips
Brighten That Smile
Nothing ages you rapidly than stains on your teeth. Brighten your smile and teeth by facilitating a whitening
tooth therapy. If it doesn't work, visit your dentist regarding bleaching. Get metal fillings replaced with white colored ones. Also brownish mauve, flesh colored lip gloss
can make teeth look whiter.
If you're having problems in sleeping, some of these ideas are sure to give you ample sleep. Plan a routine lights out time and follow it religiously. Sleep on lightweight and soft sheets and a light blanket rather than yards of heavy blankets. Let your bedroom temperature loom at the ideal nighttime temperature of 60-65 degrees F for excellent comfort. Going for a warm bath within two hours of retiring to bed is yet another way to catch a few extra winks.
Offer Your Hair a Spa Session
Do this every alternate week. Instead of running the conditioner on and off the hair, leave it on the hair for 15-20 minutes. Rinse your hair and style it as you do. Your hair will flow like silk, and your scalp will get hydration.
Give Yourself a New Look
Review your look—hair, makeup and attires need to keep up with the changing times. An outdated look is a dead look. Changing your appearance in itself is a mood-booster.
Practice Sense of Humor
Smiles are contagious. Smile and say hello to everyone you meet. Give an honest compliment to three people each day. Your facial muscles will relax, and your compliment will make someone's day happy.
Treat Yourself as a Princess
Create a rejuvenating spa with a soothing milk bath. Mix one cup of powered whole milk and one tablespoon of grape seed oil and incorporate it to running bath water. Just prior to taking a dip, add few drops of essential oil. The milk containing lactic acid, enables removing dead skin and grape seed oil containing powerful antioxidants while the essential oils generate a great mood lifting aroma.
Using grapefruit you can soften your elbows and exfoliate while bathing. Cut a grapefruit in half and use these two halves under both the elbows. Leave it in this position for nearly 15 minutes, allowing them to soak while watching your favorite movies. The grapefruit will clean the skin while discarding dark areas.
Extract the juice of 1/2 lemon or lime into a bowl. Add hot water and drink it slowly. This daily routine ritual will help you flush out all the intoxicants that your body has pilled up overnight and keep your skin ready for a new day.
Nibble More Blueberries
Blueberries are great collagen generators! Skin collagen enables reducing wrinkling. Just 1/2 cup of blueberries often in a week could keep the wrinkles away!
Make a Luxury Appointment
Spa experts suggest that if you consciously add some extra time into your routine, you start feeling more powerful and more cheerful. Fix up an appointment with your favorite spa for a manicure, facial
or massage or three in one treatment, and yield the benefits.
Take Time Out
Allow yourself to take naps once in a while. There is nothing more soothing than a Sunday brunch nap. Cover yourself with a soft throw and drift off for an hour. Wake up refreshed and awfully calm.
Give Yourself a Hand Facial
Apply a facial mask
to the back of hands often. Rinse it after 10-15 minutes. Your hands will be soft and wrinkles will lessen.
Remove Makeup Before Sleep
Going to bed with makeup on cuts down 10 days of your life of the face. The tossing and turning infiltrates the makeup into the pores causing clogs and grime to reach deeper. Spend two minutes in washing your face to preserve your skin.
Practice Nighttime Lip Balm
Lips can go dry during the night, especially if you breathe through your mouth while sleeping or if the bedroom is dry. Use some moisturizing, vitamin-based lip balm on your lips before going to bed.
Remember The Best Anti-ager
Confidence - it is smart and sexy. Learn to glow with your confidence and not only will everyone completely believe that you are beautiful, but younger than your age.
