How To Take Care Of Mature Skin

Great looking skin can be achieved no matter how old you are.

But in order to get that healthy, glowing skin, you have to do away with poor skin care habits.

Skin in your forties turns over more slowly and is more prone to dryness and fine wrinkles, so avoid overexposure to the sun.

The good news is there are a lot of treatments and products that can reverse the effects of aging.

One is chemical peel. This treatment literally peels away the rougher outer layers of your skin keeping it smooth.
Another is microdermabrasion. The crystals used will wear away dead skin.

Also consider IPL and laser for longer-lasting effects.

Retinol is your friend. Choose products with this ingredient. They can be used at home to build collagen, fade sun spots and improve the over all texture of your skin.

Splurge on a good eye cream. The eye area is the thinnest skin on your body and often the first place to show wrinkles. No skimping here!

Don’t be rough on your skin. Baby it instead! Avoid over exfoliation. Once or twice weekly is plenty. Avoid using two potentially irritating ingredients at the same time like retinol and Vitamin C. Alternate; use one in the A.M. and one in the P.M.

Do You Have These Skin Problems Too

We hear these complaints a lot:

• “My skin looks dull and has lost its glow. I guess I have to live with it since I’m getting older, right?”
• “What can I do for blotchy skin?”
• “My skin is so clogged. UGH! I hate it!”

The answer to these pesky problems is not only simple, but it’s THE most overlooked problem solver in skin care. What is it? Exfoliation.

When you exfoliate just once or twice a week, more often for oily skin, it gets rid of old, dead skin cells. Why is that important? Those dead skin cells cause your skin to look dull, your blush to “grab,” and your pores to clog.

Exfoliation revs up your blood circulation so you get back that youthful glow! And blotchy skin? Be gone. This vital step to beautiful skin helps even out skin tone.

Have you noticed how make-up settles more readily into lines and creases? By exfoliating, you will dramatically reduce this problem. Your blush won’t look blotchy, and your skin tone will improve!

Exfoliation helps to unclog pores, which reduces nasty blackheads and breakouts. What’s more you’ll see the benefit almost immediately. It’s a simple easy step that saves you money and aggravation!

How To Get The Perfect Manicure

How To Get The Perfect Manicure

How do you get perfect looking nails? What’s the right manicure for you? Here are our tips to have the perfect manicure:

1. French Manicures—Always a classic look, French manicures make your nails look longer. Wear paler shades for serious moments like a job interview.

2. Gel or Shellac nails—If you have a busy lifestyle, or you just want long lasting colour without the upkeep, this is just right for you.

3. Your Skin Tone And Colour—Make sure the colour of your polish compliments your skin tone. For blue undertones, choose pinkish nudes, deep violet, fuchsia or cherry red. For olive and yellow undertones, opt for beige or white nudes, chocolates and corals. One trick when testing a new shade, use a piece of clear tape stuck to your nail.

4. Choose A Flattering Nail Shape—An oval shape flatters most hands, but if you want to soften your look, go for a round shape. Square and “squoval” look best on long fingers. A pointed nail is more daring and makes nails look longer.

5. For Smudge Or Chip—Dab a little acetone on the trouble spot and smooth it out. Once it dries, fill in the area with matching nail polish and a topcoat.

6. First Aid For A Cracked Nail—It happens, so try this quick fix at home. Cut a strip from a tea bag to cover the nail. Apply a base coat then wet the tea bag strip with polish, and wrap it around the nail. Smooth it out and seal with another layer of polish.

7. Prevent an “Oops!” moment—Get out your keys and wallet out before your manicure starts. This will help lessen the chances of an “Oops!” moment happening.
