Proven beauty tips for women over 45

Nobody likes to get old, but whether you like it or not, years will roll by and you will turn 30, 35, 40… 45! Gasp!

Yes, 45 is a dreaded age for most women. It is that time of your life when you battle with menopausal symptoms and worry that your life as an attractive woman may just about be over. But nothing could be further from the truth. The fact is that 45 is the start of a new life; your children are probably away in college and you finally have some time for yourself. Don’t let a few hormonal changes stand in the way of a healthy, beautiful and attractive you.

Here are some proven beauty tips to help women over 45 look their best.

Consider a makeover

Most women over 45 still dress like how they used to twenty years back. Hair and makeup that are from the past will make you look precisely like you are indeed from the past. Seek the opinion of an honest friend or approach a professional to give you a modern look which is stylish and at the same time appropriate for your age. A fresher hair style and makeup can have a tremendous impact on the way you look and feel.

Subtle makeup

The makeup must be light and subtle. A heavy, powdered look will only make your face look older. Instead of a heavy foundation, you may consider applying a tinted moisturizer.

Learn how to apply makeup

If you know how to apply makeup, well and good. If you don’t, why not consider approaching a professional to show you the tricks of the trade? Find a makeup artist who will teach you how to choose products that are suitable for your skin and apply them well.

Drink plenty of water

As you get older, the skin loses its elasticity and becomes dryer. Rehydrate your body by drinking plenty of water.

Use an age-appropriate moisturizer

Use moisturizers that are designed for mature skin. Products that worked for you when you were younger may not give you the best results as you grow older. Smooth, moist lips and skin will make you look fresh and attractive. Invest in good moisturizers that suit your skin type.

Eat well

Apart from the peripheral aspects of hair and makeup, you also need to take care of your diet. Eating the right foods that are rich in antioxidants can help reverse the clock. Citrus fruits, vegetable oils, dark leafy vegetables, wheat germ, whole grains, nuts etc. are rich sources of antioxidants.

Sleep well

Get plenty of sleep to help your body rest and recuperate. The hormone melatonin that is produced during sleep is known to be an age-reversing hormone.

Don’t stress yourself

Manage your stress levels. High stress can cause your body to secrete cortisol, which is also known as the stress hormone. High levels of cortisol can negatively impact your hormonal chemistry, making you unhealthy and accelerate the aging process. So when you find yourself stressing about something, remind yourself that it’s just not worth it.

None of us want to grow old, but aging is inevitable. By following a healthy diet and lifestyle, and by taking care of your hair, makeup and appearance, you can look and feel your best even after 45. Take care of yourself, you deserve it.
