Most women in general, but particularly over 60 are concerned about the onset of an ‘aging’ and want to have “younger-looking” skin to match. Since we are bombarded with having to be this young thing  and all the photoshopped pictures that are not real.  Us Over 60 ladies are never going to have that taut, flawless, pore less, even toned skin back. So we need to concentrate on having the best looking skin we can achieve.  Any routine you choose you HAVE to continue  doing it. It is not just  1 day I will do it then not do it again for a week, it has to be a daily routine.

Don’t Try to Look “Younger” it generally makes you older. Let’s try to look the best we can
we lived life and should be proud of that!

Stay out of the Sun
Sun damage is one of the leading causes of wrinkled, spotted skin. Try to limit your sun exposure, wear hats and use sunblock. A lot of sun damage doesn’t become fully apparent until later in life.  Using sunblock and avoiding excessive sun can also reduce your risk of skin cancer.

Wash Your Face Before Sleep
Dry skin is one of the most common challenges for women over 60, because people’s skin tends to become drier as we lose oil glands when we get older. Do not use soap, as soap will pull away the natural oils from your skin.  Use a cream cleanser, oil cleanser, nothing to harsh. Toner after washing and then use a serum and moisturizer to but back moisture in the skin. Exfoliation helps our skin also, skin we do not shed dead skin as fast as out younger counterparts. Again with exfoliation, nothing harsh. Getting facials from a professional helps also.

When you are over 60, you must, must moisturize daily, always use  moisturizer, serum whatever works for you and above all sunblock.

Stop Smoking, aside from all the other health benefits of giving up smoking, if you are a smoker, you probably have more wrinkles than other people your same age who do not smoke.

There are so many products in the market, you need to find what works for you be it high end, natural oils, drug store brands, indie brands. Yes we carry skin care that we love and use!!
