A lot of women think that once they’re over 60, looking beautiful is a thing of the past. However, more and more women are embracing their age, and beauty is possible from retirement age and beyond. It’s all about the way that you carry yourself, and the way that you take care of yourself as well. If you’re looking to look fabulous over 60, then look no further than these beauty tips.
It’s never too late to start taking care of your skin. The sun is the number one cause of weathered-looking skin. So even if your skin is already damaged, it’s not too late to start taking action. Start applying an SPF of at least 30 every single day under your makeup. Some moisturizers even come with SPF built-in, making your morning beauty regime easier. Just make sure that you wash it off at night, and apply a night cream since SPF isn’t recommended to be slept in.
One of the biggest giveaways of older skin is wrinkles under heavy makeup. The best way to avoid this is to exfoliate your skin as much as possible. The more you can strip down your skin so that it rids itself of all of the old cells, the more youthful and smooth your complexion will be.
However, you should not over-exfoliate which can irritate your skin. Every other day is the recommended amount before you go to bed.
Go Wild on Lipstick!
Lipstick isn’t just for younger girls! In fact, lipstick can give your face a splash of color, and immediately boost your youthfulness. If you’ve never really been a lipstick wearer before, then now is a great time to start. Go for bright colors and be bold.
Let Your Silvers Grow Out
A lot of women over 60 think that dyeing their hair will give them the appearance of looking younger. However, you’re not fooling anyone. Letting your silver hairs grow out can actually make you look younger, and is much more flattering! Silver hair is all the rage. There are 20-year-olds paying big bucks at the salon to come out with silver hair the same color as yours! So embrace it and become the silver fox that you are.
Buy The Right Makeup
The same foundation that worked for you when you were 30 is not the same one that will work for you when you’re 50 or 60. make sure that you adapt your foundation type with your age. You need a much more moisturizing texture as you get older, otherwise, the foundation can stick to the creases of your mouth and eyes, making you look much older than you are.
