Menopause Beauty Routine - A Makeover?
Better Skin after 50? Yes, it is possible! But, your beauty routine may need an overhaul.
Ladies: We all care about our skin. As we age, we truly should revamp our routine. Many of your go-to products will "stop working" if they are a lower strength or do not contain actives known for benefiting aging skin. Let’s talk about that.
Our skin gets drier, hormonal changes can make wrinkles go on the rampage, and dark spots try to pop up everywhere. WHAT? How annoying! Even I, your skincare “expert,” had to change a few things. I have always had a good routine, but I needed to tweak it.
So, what should you be using now?
Retinol is a Vitamin A derivative that is incredible for diminishing fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. If you have never used Retinol, I recommend using it 2 nights per week to start out then progressing to an extra night weekly until you can use it nightly. I use my Retinol nightly and have for many years. It is one of my "Skin Care Basics"
Retinol should be used in the evening because it is sun-sensitive.
If you have never tried Retinol, now is the time. Retinol serum is extraordinary for your skin. Look for a serum, not a cream, and make sure it is 0.05%. Seriously... you will look YOUNGER in 2 weeks!
Here is my favorite:
Another "Must"..... A Vitamin C serum. Why? Vitamin C is clinically shown to prevent age spots, reverse hyperpigmentation, and give your skin a glowing boost. It holds benefits for sun protection, as well, and for that reason use your C Serum in the morning. You can also use it on nights that you are not using your Retinol. Don't layer...save your money and use one at a time.
Personally, There are lesser strength Vitamin C products, but I upped my strength to 20%. This strength is difficult to find over the counter, but I tracked one down and I LOVE it! I use it daily. You might experience a little peeling at first and this is a GOOD thing. Your dead skin is gone and you are down to "Fresh" skin cells. Yay!
Here it is:
You need a hydrating crème with peptides and hyaluronic acid. Peptides rejuvenate your skin's surface and improve elasticity. Hyaluronic acid is extraordinary for hydration and supple skin. It captures moisture and rehydrates up to 1000 % of its weight! My OverNite Success was formulated to be a night creme, but its benefits are so wonderful that it can be used as a daily moisturizer for mornings, too.
It contains my Super 6: hyaluronic acid, matrixyl, C, , argireline, aloe extracts, and Vitamin E. This combination will repair your skin while you sleep! I have developed our products with both you AND me in mind. AND, I kept them affordable. We do not need to pay for packaging...just the product. I am appalled at what some skin care products with pharmaceutical grade ingredients cost. Not for MY people!
Here is the OverNite Success:
Ah, those beautiful eyes of yours! I love the Eye've Got a Secret Plus Eye Crème for daily use.
I also use the Younger You Eye Masque. I started to develop “bags,” and I knew something needed to change! Recently, when I was on vacation in Europe, I found an eye masque…I never saw one in the U.S. Ta Da! I came home and immediately developed one for us.
You can purchase separately OR as a discounted kit.
Here are my eye products in a kit together:
OK, we have the basics for our Meno Beauty Routine. If you are over 50, these 4 products are a must!
My one other piece of advice that I think is valuable is to exfoliate once a week. Not only on your face, but your hands too! You want a good scrub with microbeads.
Here is my favorite Microdermabrasion Kit: It gives you both the C serum & the microdermabrasion. If you would like to try the microdermabrasion creme, let me know and I will happily send you a sample.
AND don’t forget your progesterone crème. The skin LOVES progesterone! I use my hormone cremes on my face about 3x per week. You apply your hormone creme first, let it sit for about 3-5 minutes, and then layer other products on top.
One more thing…If you are ever in my neighborhood, I invite you to my house to glimpse my “product” section in my bathroom. It is expansive. I even have my husband using the "Over 50" Products. The poor man…he has no choice…my products have exploded over to his neck of the woods!
One more, one more thing… Luster has its own appeal now. These Illuminating Highlighters give your skin a gorgeously healthy glow! A little dab, and voila!
Illuminating Liquid Highlighter: Rose Quartz
