Once you hit your 50s, your pursuit for a beautiful skin, a beautiful body and a beautiful sense of style should not at all come to an end. The recommended diet and exercise habit for a 50 year old is not much different from those of a 20 year old. In fact, the only difference is in the 50s, a healthy diet and regular exercise become more important than ever. The key to keeping your body properly functioning and in good shape, during the aging process, is to eat healthy and stay active.
Most adults, 50 years and above, are still capable of completing a few exercises. At this age, exercise could mean a daily walk for about an hour, and workouts with exercise videos at home. To ease the wrinkles on your face, there is help in the form of ‘Botox’ injections. Removal of fine lines and smoothing skin, especially around the eyes and mouth, is the magical effect of chemical peels. For ‘plumping’ up your skin and erasing lines, wrinkle fillers come to your aid.
A cream lipstick is a better option for women over 50 than a matte or gloss. In fact, a pinch these lipsticks can also serve as a blush. Lips become thinner with age, and lose definition and color. So, for aging skin, one of the great makeup tricks is – use a neutral lip liner to make lips appear plump, and a sheer lipstick to avoid ‘feathering’. A lip liner helps to define lips. A lip liner with its color close to the natural shade of your lips should be opted for; and the lips should be outlined before applying lip color. For different occasions, outfits, and moods, stash a few lipsticks of daring shades in your purse. You can look great if you use ‘correct’ makeup to accentuate your positive qualities.
Beauty tips for women over 50:
1. Don’t use heavy makeup and powders on dry skin.
2. Your skin may look matte and dry, if heavily powdered.
3. Just as the pigment in our hair turns it grey, the melanin in our skin changes too.
4. Don’t fall prey to the idea that you must have every new color that is in trend for a particular season.
5. Use a humidifier, moisturizing soaps and lotions.
6. Good nutrition is ideal for repairing damaged skin.
7. Drinking lots of water helps hydrate skin.
8. Use products with SPF 15 or higher, and both UVB and UVA protection.
Loss of youthful appearance, decreased skin tautness and the development of wrinkles are the telltale signs of aging skin. As we grow in age, the skin sags and becomes wrinkled. The skin ages for various reasons. Both intrinsic as well as environmental factors are responsible for skin aging. Increasing loss of flexibility due to degeneration of collagen and elastin within the epidermis naturally leads to aging skin. UVA and UVB light wavelengths from the sun also ‘contribute’ their bit in speeding up the ageing process of the skin.
