Women at any age can be concerned about the aging process, but especially the ones over 60. Woman often want to have younger-looking skin that matches the eternal youth machine that they are exposed to each day, often going to great lengths with dermal fillers and other cosmetic procedures. It would be great if we stopped talking about younger skin and actually tried to get healthy skin at any age of our life. Our skin has been good to us and we need to look after it and give it some appreciation and thanks.
Don’t aim to look younger
Someone who wrote about the meaning of beauty after the 60 age bracket would be none other than Cindy Joseph. An inspirational baby boomer, make-up expert, and fashion model. Cindy Joseph was an advocate for how important it is to use natural ingredients to feel and look great at whatever age you are. You don’t need to use expensive and ineffective treatments to achieve a young appearance. There are many less intrusive and expensive ways to help you look and feel healthy.
Use Natural Skin Care Products
It’s sad but true that most products are filled with heavily processed ingredients and chemicals. You can often get much better results with more natural skin products that have coconut oil, olive oil, and certain herbs. The same ingredients can be used in your kitchen as healthy meal options are often the same ones that can help you to get better-looking skin.
Give Your Skin the Nutrition it Needs
The skin has many nutritional needs. Going further than the traditional advice of eating a balanced diet loaded with veggies and fruit, there are specific foods that can help you to maintain radiant skin. Dark chocolate is one if you get the sort that has over seventy percent cacao, red bell peppers, and coconut oil – and it tastes delicious!
Skin peels are a very deep exfoliation that uses a mild acid to take off dead skin build-ups and make your skin feel fresh. Treatments such as fotona laser will also help with smoothing out wrinkles. Basically, if the top layer of the skin is covered in a layer of dead skin, exfoliating will remove some. If you go for a salon peel, they are stronger than the at-home products, so you are going to rid the build-up on your face fast and easy.
The dead skin cells are dry and dull. The top layer is where the color pigmentation and age spots are sitting. If you are exfoliating often, it will help to remove the dullness, dryness, and discoloration. Your skin will be hydrated, pore clearer, and the lines will be less obvious, making your skin more radiant.
This is just like using a face mask. A body mask can offer many benefits for the body’s skin. Body masks can draw out impurities, increase circulation, exfoliate, and to firm and smooth the bumpy skin. There are plenty of salons that offer body masks where you can opt to have one on its own, or you can combine it with a massage and all over body scrub. This, for some, can be the ultimate indulgence.
Above all else it is important that you keep hydrated. Skin that is dry and dehydrated will age faster than hydrated skin. Keep your fluids up and drink as much water as you can to keep your skin clear. Your skin will thank you for it in the long run.
