“And the beauty of a woman, with passing years only grows!”- Audrey Hepburn
True that! I personally don’t think that there is anything ‘anti’ about aging. You move into a new phase of beauty once you enter your fabulous 50s. And just as your skin evolves with time, so should your makeup and skincare routine. You cannot be stuck in the beauty rut of using the same products in the same way as you did in your 20s and 30s.
So, all the gorgeous ladies out there, it’s time to update your makeup routine! Check out these tips to get that age-defying look in your 50s.
1. Take Care Of Your Skin
Because the healthier your skin is, the lesser makeup you need. And the secret to good skin care is pretty easy:
- Never Forget Your Moisturizer
There’s nothing better for your skin than a moisturizer. It keeps your skin hydrated and radiant. A good moisturizer can also make your makeup products settle and glide on more easily. Make sure to use a moisturizer containing hyaluronic acid. If you are clueless about what hyaluronic acid is and which products to buy, learn more about it right here.
- Retinol Is Your New Best Friend
Retinol helps in decreasing fine lines and wrinkles. It can penetrate deeply into your skin’s layers. Consult your dermatologist before using this product.
- Exfoliation Is Important
If your skin is dry and flaky, your makeup will not blend into your skin and ends up looking patchy. Regular exfoliation is the best way to remove dead skin cells and make your skin softer and smoother.
- Always Take Off Your Makeup Before Going To Bed
It feels good to wake up with a fresh face rather than a face covered with clogged pores and, of course, makeup all over your pillows!
- Protect Your Skin From the Sun
The risk of pigmentation, sun spots, and blemishes increases with age. So, apply sunscreen whenever you go out in the sun. Cover your face, neck, hands, and other exposed areas with sunscreen. Wear sunglasses and hats.
