Brands and media would like all women to believe that the only way they can be beautiful is if they’re young. And that is pushing a lot of women into the path of cosmetic surgeries, instead of allowing them to embrace their everlasting beauty. There is a lot of beauty in you even if you’re past your thirties, but you have to give your skin proper care and attention if you want that beauty to shine through. So, here are some of the best skin care products that every woman should use to enhance her natural beauty, age and all:
Sun protection is key
This isn’t just important for older women, as our skin gets damaged by the sun throughout our lives. However, the older you are, the more it shows, and you might start to get sun spots and uneven pigmentation. That’s why the start of every day should include a sunscreen amongst your skincare routine. If you’re going to spend the day on the beach or any kind of extreme sun exposure, then make sure you apply a high SPF waterproof cream and reapply it every few hours or when you feel like you are burning up. If it’s not a particularly sunny day, applying a moisturizer or a primer with SPF will work just fine. Remember that you can get a tan when you’re in the shade as well, so try to stay away from direct sunlight and protect your head with a hat and sunglasses.
Take care of your hands
The skin on our hands is extremely thin and sensitive, and as such, it is the first to show signs of aging. This is why good care of your hands will make all of the difference in your overall appearance. If you do have some age spots that you would like to get removed, there are procedures like micro-needling that can help minimize their appearance. But the most important thing is everyday care with something hydrating like Mor hand cream. Keep it in your purse, on your desk, and by your bed, and apply several times per day or whenever your hands feel dry. During winter, make sure you’re wearing gloves to protect your hands from the harsh weather.
Exfoliating your skin is an important step, but it can definitely be a double-edged sword. Exfoliation removes the dead cells from the top of your skin, which allows your skin to breathe, soak up skin products better and generally look smoother and plumper. However, if you overdo it, you can risk scrubbing off the new cells, leaving your skin red and sore. Make sure that the exfoliator you’re using is gentle, and use the tips of your fingers to gently rub it onto your face. Removing the dead skin will help minimize the appearance of pores and make your skin look smooth. But don’t do it more often than once or twice per week, or you can risk ruining your skin and making it prone to break-outs and dry patches. Always moisturize after exfoliating, and apply any serums that might be in your routine, because that’s when your skin will take in most of the product.
Don’t think that the lines on your face, no matter how prominent, are making you any less beautiful. They are signs that you’ve lived a life full of emotions and you shouldn’t be ashamed of them. For your health, you’ll want to drink a lot of water, and if your skin always feels plump and hydrated, it’s a good indicator that the rest of your body is fine as well. As long as your skin feels good and you’re happy with it, there’s nothing else you have to do.
