It’s your skin, not some 16 year old model’s…
Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate! One of many mantras we hear as the perfect solution to glowing and youthful skin. Others swear by coconut oil or argan oil, a celebrity brand with unintelligible ingredients or just simple soap. Most women in general, but particularly those over 60, are concerned about the onset of an ‘aging’ appearance and want to have “younger-looking” skin to match the eternal youth brand machine they are exposed to every day. But wouldn’t it be great if instead of talking about “younger looking skin,” we could focus on having “healthy skin” at any age? Here are a few skin care tips for how women over 60 can achieve healthier skin – and feel better!
When I was a consultant for Proctor and Gamble, one of the great growth targets was skincare for the baby boomers. And for good reason – our skin tends to get thinner with age and less flexible. we lose muscle tone and gravity starts to take its toll.
Here are some tips that you should keep in mind:
- You should strive, not to look younger, but to feel better and proud of your looks.
- Use natural products – ones that use herbs, natural oils and ingredients
- The sun destroys skin – keep it off your face and neck for sure. Use sunscreen daily
- Don’t smoke and stay away from people that do
- Moisturize daily
- Drink lots of water
