Makeup and Beauty Tips for Seniors

Makeup and Beauty Tips for Seniors

Living in a prestigious retirement community such as Beverly Hills Carmel gives you extra time to invest in your health and appearance. By taking advantage of beauty products and tips created specifically for seniors, you can age with grace and style. The following beauty and skin care tips can keep you looking and feeling your best at any age.  

Beauty Tips

Aging is no excuse to “let yourself go” in health and appearance. With a little help, you can continue to look good well into your golden years. Here are a few makeup tricks that can help you improve trouble spots as you age.

  • Eye Circles. It’s not uncommon for older women to develop dark circles under their eyes, even if they’re getting sufficient sleep. A thin coat of foundation can minimize dark circles while regular use of nighttime eye cream can help reduce crow’s feet and wrinkles around your eyes.  
  • Eyelashes and Brows. As lashes and brows thin with age, you’ll need a little help defining these areas to keep the “windows of your soul” looking their best as you grow older. Thin brows can be filled in with a brow pencil while quality mascara can add volume to lashes to make your eyes stand out.
  • Hair. Many older women look great in silver locks. If silver isn’t your style, however, an age-appropriate hair coloring can give you the look you want. Natural colors and highlights coupled with a stylish haircut can shave years off your age, bringing you front and center at Beverly Hills Carmel functions and events.
  • Lips. As you grow older, light lip colors will give you a more natural, feminine look that says “come hither” to the men in your life.

Too much sun can damage your skin, causing wrinkles, spots and even skin cancer. If you’re going to be out in the sun, use sunblock for protection against UV rays and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.

Skin Care Tips 

The older you get, the more important it is to protect your skin. Natural skin care products contain vitamins and herbs that enhance skin health as you age. Here are a few other ways to keep your skin from aging before its time.

  • Limit Exposure to the Sun. Too much sun can damage your skin, causing wrinkles, spots and even skin cancer. If you’re going to be out in the sun, use sunblock for protection against UV rays and drink plenty of water to stay hydrated.
  • Quit Smoking. Smoking can cause your skin to dry out and become wrinkly before its time. If skin health is important to you, kick the smoking habit.
  • Limit Bath Time. Long, hot baths may soothe your nerves but tend to dry out skin. Add bath oil to your bath to counter this effect and moisturize your skin immediately afterward.  
  • Eat a Healthy Diet. Skin friendly foods to eat include green leafy vegetables, dark chocolate, legumes, fish, nuts and coconut oil. These foods will boost your skin health as you grow older.
