Aging & skincare

Just because you’re getting older every year doesn’t mean you have to look your age.  You can look better.  What I’ve learned from several experts is that when you take care of your skin, your skin will radiate and shine.  When your face shines, all you need is a bright smile and you will be more beautiful than ever.

Skincare Tips:

As I’ve gotten older, I make sure to wash my face every morning and before I go to bed.

Find a face wash that you like the texture and odor of…. so you enjoy & LOVE washing your face.

Twice a week a use a Clarisonic so that my skin gets a deeper cleaning.

I always wear moisturizer and to really be safe from sun damage, one with sunscreen.

I have eye creams and serums that I use often, but not all the time as I feel like a good moisturizer is all you need.

In the evening I wash, dry & remove eye makeup then apply a thick layer of night cream.

To enhance the overall look of your face, make sure you have the right color foundation and keep your everyday make up simple and shiny.  I love using a bronzer to brighten my cheeks.

Make sure your lips are hydrated and I’ve used a lip scrub at times to exfoliate my lips.

Eyebrow and lip waxing is essential.  I’m always amazed at how much brighter my eyes look after eyebrow shaping.

Everyone says it, but it’s true ‘Drink tons of water’.

My favorite products right now are: Philosophy’s ‘purity 3-in-1 cleanser for face & eyes’.  I like this because the odor is light, the product goes a long ways and it helps remove eye make up.  I follow up with  Philosophy’s ‘hope in a jar’.  I love the way it’s whipped and how it goes on my face really well.  I buy mine from “Making Faces“.

My favorite sunscreen is “Modern Priscilla replenishing sunblock”.  This product provides an spf of 36, provides light moisturizer, an antioxidant and is tinted!  I use this product with my ‘hope in a jar’ moisturizer.  I buy mine from “Modern Priscilla“.

At night I use “Neutrogena naturals”.  It is a multi-vitamin nourishing night cream that goes on well and smells refreshing.  I buy mine at “Ride Aid”.

Here are several older ladies that have flawless skin and yes look better than they did in their younger years!

Makeup Rule 1, Bold eyes Nude lips

Makeup rule 1:  figure out what you want to enhance, eye or lips and stay focused.
I adore making the eyes bold, but I’m not a fan of working the lips with it….keep the lips nude or light.  Your eyes don’t know where to look at a face that has too much going on.  A face that is too made up can look cheap and overdone.
