Whether you have just reached your 40s or have recently turned 70 and decided to retire, your skin may not look as good as it used to, and the clothing that used to be your style may not be your favorite anymore.
All women evolve and change over time, and that means your sense of style and beauty routine will change too! If you are in a transitional phase and unsure of what you should be doing, here are 4 style and beauty tips for women over 40.
Drinking more water and staying hydrated may not seem like a beauty tip, but it really is because hydration works to fix things that may be off with your body from the inside out! As you age, you may have started to notice that your skin is much more dry than it used to be and drinking plenty of water will help so much with that that you may not need to purchase an expensive new moisturizer.
Dress In What You Feel Comfortable In
Rather than following fashion trends and paying attention to what is currently “in”, you should simply feel your wardrobe with clothing that makes you happy and that you feel most comfortable in. Choose things that fit you well and are comfortable enough that you aren’t dying to change out of them the moment you walk in the door after a long day. Dressing “age appropriately” is a thing of the past and it’s much more important to stay true to yourself and your own style because when you feel your best you will look your best too.
Swap Out Your Skincare
Even if you have a skincare routine that you love and think works very well for you, you should probably consider swapping out some of the products you use in favor of something new from time to time. You see, as you age your skin will go through many changes and might be craving different ingredients than it needed previously.
Stop Comparing Yourself To Others
Comparing yourself to others and caring about what other people think is only human and it is natural no matter who you are or what age you are. That being said, as you get older you should notice that you are becoming more comfortable in your own skin. If that’s the case, it’s definitely time for you to stop comparing yourself to others for good and to be content being who you are and looking how you look! Jealousy is a useless emotion anyway.
For women over 40, style and beauty may not be at the top of the list of important things, but hopefully these tips can help you if you are feeling clueless.
