Just because you have reached the age of 50, does not mean that you have to make drastic changes in your appearance.
Surely some things have changed, and so has your beautification routine. The routine you have been following in your 40s no longer works the same and is not as effective because your skin has changed too. However, basic things such as skin hydration and powder application remain the same.
Do not be afraid in your golden age, you no longer have to impress people. Your workplace is comfortable, your kids have grown up, and you are dressing up in order to feel good. Enjoy your years and your experience, and keep these few steps in mind.
A HEALTHY DIET AND A LOT OF WATER
Skin is the most important thing and this will not change. To keep your skin healthy in your 50s, you need to eat vegetables, protein, and fruits.
Vitamins in fruits and vegetables will maintain the shine of your skin and hair. You also need to drink several glasses of water because your skin is drier. The ideal daily amount of water is eight glasses. When it comes to fast food – a big NO!
Not only that can it cause health problems, but it can also make your skin look tired.
Physical activity produces endorphin – a hormone that stimulates a positive mood. Practice brisk walks for 30 minutes every day. Sweat will make you happy, so if you are happy on the inside – you will be young and energetic on the outside. Sweating opens the skin pores, so exercise is essential for healthy skin.
CLEAN YOUR FACE BEFORE APPLYING MAKEUP
If you adhere to the previous two steps, you are already halfway. Only a clean face is ideally prepared for any makeup. Start the routine by cleansing the skin, do not use a bar of too strong soap, rather a face cleanser that does not contain too many chemicals. You can also ask for an asset designed for older people.
DO NOT USE A WRINKLE CREAM – USE A HYDRATING CREAM INSTEAD
This rule should be followed although cosmetic brands ask you to believe that their creams are functional and that they can really prevent the appearance of wrinkles in record time. Instead of such creams, apply a skin moisturizer twice a day, as it will keep your skin soft and moist and at the same time it will make wrinkles less visible.
This rule remains the same for women in any age of life. You need to find the right shade that fits perfectly with your skin. You may need to apply a larger amount than before, but this is normal. Finally apply powder foundation with the same shade for a perfect finish.
Although your skin is no longer the same, this does not apply to your eyes. Make your eyes the center of attention. Put makeup on your eyes with a quality eyeliner and a good mascara. Avoid dark eye shadows.
Use lipstick with a lighter shade, and avoid lip liners because the liner will only highlight the wrinkles around your lips.
Make your hairstyle as simple as possible. If it’s gray – do not hide it. Show it with pride, and if you decide to color it – color it from the roots to the tops.
