Age is nothing but a number. While this is true, there are a number of ways age can affect a woman’s skin. But just because you are 40, 50, or 60 and proud of it does not mean you have to neglect your looks. Often all it takes is some simple steps to keep a woman’s skin looking good while she ages gracefully. Some opt to use powerful over-the-counter products like lactic acid and alpha hydroxy peels, professional grade microdermabrasion machines, advanced copper peptides, retinol creams, or laser wrinkle treatment devices. But there are a number of simple things older women can do every day to keep their skin looking good.
Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, excess oil, and dirt from the skin’s surface. This not only makes the skin look good, it can also help to prevent adult acne. Using a facial scrub can help smoothen skin, refine its texture, and leave it looking soft and supple. Just be sure to do it gently so your skin won’t look red and over-treated.
Use a Lifter
As people age their skin loses begins to lose elasticity. This can lead to sagging and wrinkles. Using cosmetics which contain peptides can help to increase firmness and improve the elasticity of your skin.
Dry skin is not at all attractive. As people age, their oil-producing glands are not as active. Using an oil-based moisturizer which has a petrolatum base and also contains antioxidants can help to fight off wrinkles and leave skin looking health and smooth.
Don’t Forget Primer
Using a primer helps makeup go on evenly and smoothly. Primers also help it stay in place. This can improve your looks dramatically.
Good looking eyes draw attention away from wrinkles and fine lines. Using a matte eye shadow which matches your eye color helps. Using a good concealer can make bags and dark circles disappear. At night use a rich under-eye cream. Use a lighter one during the day. This will draw attention to your eyes and away from your flaws.
Use Light Colored Lipsticks
Darker lipsticks make people look older. Stick with pinks and rosy reds. Using a plumper can also make your lips look full and luscious.
Getting Rid of Dark Spots
Sunspots, acne scars and dark spots are a natural part of aging. Using a dark spot corrector which contains vitamin C conceals dark spots immediately and decreases them over time.
Be Careful with Blush
A little blush can brighten up a dull complexion. Blending it properly will give your skin the perfect pop of color.
Exposure to the sun can damage your skin over time. Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen every day can help protect your skin. Make sure it’s at least SPF 15.
Having ageless beauty is easy if you take the time to follow some of the suggestions above. They won’t stop you from getting older, but they will keep your aging skin looking great. Don’t forget to drink lots of water. Consult to a certifified dermatologist at Prive Vitale Aesthetics Clinic Singapore.
