Beauty Tips for Seniors

Beauty Tips for Seniors

No matter how old you may be, it’s never too late to have beauty be a high priority. There is no age limit for the joyful feeling you get when you get a haircut you love, or the look of
a fresh manicure or pedicure. A soothing facial or glamorous makeover will always be a gre193at way for you to relax and look as beautiful as you feel.

Although many concern themselves with daily physical appearance maintenance, the way one cares for oneself must be tweaked with time. For instance, your skin may not look quite the way it used to; the make-up you’ve always used may look differently on you, and the texture of your hair might have changed; however, that shouldn’t stop you from being able to look and feel your best!

Here are some simple beauty tips from your friends at Autumn Pointe Senior Living!

Make Sunscreen a Priority
It doesn’t matter if the sun isn’t out and there are clouds in the sky—sunscreen should always be part of your daily beauty routine! Did you know even slight sun exposure can cause wrinkles and sun spots, even if you aren’t outside for a long period of time? That’s why it’s best to be proactive and put sunscreen on your face, neck, and hands.

Want to make this step even easier? Take a look at the moisturizer you use (and our next beauty tip!); often, moisturizers for your skin can contain sunscreen in them. If they do, you just combined two products you need into one!

Moisturize and Exfoliate
By moisturizing regularly (we recommend you do this every night after your make up is removed before you go to sleep), your skin stays beautify, smooth, and hydrated!

There’s a Perfect Foundation and Lipstick for You!
Just because you have a favorite foundation and lipstick, probably one that you’ve been using for many years, doesn’t mean it is right for you. We recommend you pick a foundation that matches your skin tone and is right for your skin type. Your skin changes a great deal the more you mature, so a foundation that is made for mature skin, and contains moister and a high SPF, is especially important. Because your lips become thinner the more you age, some lipsticks are made for thinner lips in mind; they can make lips appear more plump, sleek, and moist!
