Aging is an inevitable part of life. But life also knows how to rejuvenate itself. Nature can keep itself looking refreshed. As you begin to age, you can learn from nature by using what it provides in a bid to maintain your own appearance of freshness and vitality. While the clock never stops ticking, there are things you can do to help slow down the appearance of age. A regime of natural ingredients for both your inside and your outside can go much farther toward keeping your skin healthy and glowing than artificial chemical products can.
It’s well known that poor diet and lax skin care makes people’s skin look older. Everyone who has embarked on (and stuck to) a new eating plan of healthful, whole, organic foods has received compliments about how much happier, livelier and younger they look.
So, let’s look at a facial routine for an aging woman that is comprehensive and follows Mother Nature’s example. The only way somebody should find out how old you are is by looking at your driver’s license.
Skin Care from Fantastic 40s Through Fabulous 50s, 60s and Beyond
This routine can apply from your 20s or 30s. If you’ve been proactive in taking care of your skin, then you likely won’t look your age after 50. And if not, it’s never too late to start. What you ‘sow’ for your skin now (both good and bad), you will ‘reap’ in the decades to follow.
Every morning should begin with a large glass of water with some lemon juice in it and then using a natural cleanser on the face. Choose something that is gentle, ideally pH balanced, and with no fillers (meaning not water-based). Products that use aloe vera as a base are ideal. Aloe vera has been a proven skin helper for thousands of years and won’t strip away vital nutrients and oils from your skin. The drier your skin becomes from harsh cleansing, the more it will show age.
After cleansing, apply a face cream enriched with Manuka honey. A product that contains Manuka honey is naturally apt to prevent acne, repair skin, hydrate, and also ward off some of the more visible signs of aging.
During the day, drink plain water, 6 to 8 glasses of it. Eat more raw foods, more organic foods, more greens, and less processed stuff.
At the end of the day, be sure to repeat your natural, gentle cleansing and moisturizing before bed. Stick with a formula that includes aloe vera and Manuka honey. Nature knows best. You can even consider using a daily body wash and body moisturizer that are rich in the best ingredients from across the globe.
Other Important Ways to Look After Your Skin
An effective facial skin care routine for an aging woman goes beyond the cleansing and moisturizing products you use. Support them to do their job…
- Get enough sleep.
- Use high SPF sunscreen and a wide-brimmed hat. Ultraviolet damage from the sun is a huge accelerator for skin aging. Even use makeup with SPF.
- No smoking.
- Reduce alcohol or avoid it altogether.
- Should rosacea or eczema strike, use a wash and a cream that are naturally gentle, pH balanced, and effective.
Don’t believe the slick ads with fancy words that promote multiple products for different ages and scare you about aging. A facial routine for an aging woman should always be simple and based in nature’s bounty. From the earliest possible age, choose the most natural skin care products available. They are gentler and healthier for your skin and often more eco-friendly.
