The temperatures are falling in the Mid-Atlantic area of the U.S. If you are approaching or over 50, and have dry skin, my dermatologist says the skin develops microscopic cracks in colder weather. Therefore, we need to take extra time to apply oils and moisturizers that protect our skin. Before I hit my fifties, I never noticed my skin getting drier in the Autumn and Winter months. Now, as soon as the temperatures drop in Autumn, my lips, hands, feet, and scalp are drier! I even have to use OLIVE SWEET OIL W/DROPPER 1 OZ since my ear canals get very dry! Just before going to bed, I use Body Wonders Castor Oil, Hexane Free for Healthy Hair, Skin and Nails, 16 fl oz / 473 ml on my hands, feet, elbows, and knees. For my lips, I keep Chapstick Classic Medicated Lip Balm, 0.15 Ounce, 3 Count with me at all times! After my morning shower, I absolutely love The Body Shop Body Butter, Shea, 6.75 Ounce (Packaging May Vary)! It is thick and creamy; it smells delicious; and it keeps my body soft and supple!

5 #BeautyTips for #WomenOver50! #over50 #50plus #beauty

Over50 Skincare! beauty over 50 over50beauty 50plusbeauty 50plusskincare over50skincare

The keys to beauty for women over 50 are: Healthy Skin, Hair, and Nails! As we age, our skin, hair, and nails become thinner, less elastic, and drier. The Nutrilite Complex for Hair, Skin, and Nails may help prevent brittle nails, promote healthy hair, and improve skin condition. The complex contains Biotin, Grapeseed Extract, Collagen, Glycine, Horsetail Herb Extract, Vitamin C, and L-Cysteine. For details on how these nutrients may help improve your hair, skin, and nails, click here.

Skin Care

Skin care is one of the most important aspects of maintaining your beauty over the age of 50. Your skin is like the canvas of a painting … Keeping your skin smooth and taut will enhance your appearance. If you were a “sun-worshipper” in your 20s and 30s, you may need Intensive Skincare treatment. Products such as Anti-Wrinkle Firming Serum, 14-Night Restore Program, and LuXury Eye Creme may result in a visible reduction in the appearance of wrinkles.

Artistry Anti-Aging Collection consists of a creamy foam cleanser, softening toner, serum concentrate, and eye creme. The collection of anti-aging products help smooth the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improves overall radiance, and helps keep skin looking younger, longer. Drinking 8 glasses of water per day keeps the body and skin hydrated, which may lead to a more radiant glow.

Thinning Hair

To address thinning hair, Satinique Anti-Hairfall Shampoo contains patented Enerjuve™ Complex, which invigorates fragile, fine, or thinning hair while reducing hair loss from breakage. Satinique Anti-Hairfall Conditioner, when used with Satinique Anti-Hairfall Shampoo and Satinique Scalp Tonic, helps restore fullness by leaving hair looking thicker. To keep my gray hair from turning yellow, I use Clairol Shimmer Lights 16 oz. Shampoo + 16 oz. Conditioner (Combo Deal). To keep my hair and scalp moist until my next hair appointment, I use Dudley’s Hair and Scalp Conditioner, 4 Ounce. As a side note, the local beauty supply shop sells Dudley’s Hair and Scalp Conditioner, 4 Ounce for $13.99 plus tax, and Amazon sells Dudley’s Hair and Scalp Conditioner, 4 Ounce for $12.07. If you have Prime, shipping is free!

Protect Your Hair, Skin and Nails

Keeping your hair, skin, and nails healthy eliminates the need for lots of makeup. Makeup clogs the pores, especially foundation. So, focus on healthy radiant skin! Cleanse, tone, moisturize, and protect your skin from the sun! The sun dries out your skin and hair. Wear hats and sunglasses to protect your eyes, skin, and hair from harmful UV rays. Before I turned 45, I never wore hats. I noticed my Mom always wore hats, but I never knew why. I never asked. When she became ill and I had to help her bathe, I noticed her skin was flawless! From that point forward, I began wearing hats to protect my hair and skin. I also protect my skin with sunscreen! One of our followers shared that she uses sunscreen on her face, neck, hands, chest and feet! I use Mary Kay – Timewise Day Solution Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 35 – 29ml/1oz every day! To keep my nails from becoming brittle, I rub olive oil on my nails and cuticles after removing nail polish. I let the olive oil stay on my nails and cuticles for about 5 minutes, then rinse with soap and water.

I keep my lips moist by using ChapStick Classic Medicated, 0.15 oz, 12-Stick Refill Pack, and apply a little Mary Kay NouriShine Plus Lip Gloss: Beach Bronze for color and shine.

5 #Grooming Tips for Men #Over50! #health #healthy #50plus

Over 50 Male Grooming 50plus thefiftyplusnetwork groom grooming how to groom over50 male grooming tips

Grooming tips for men start with the inside … your health! Nutrilite offers a special vitamin pack for men: Men’s Pack. The Men’s Pack consists of:

  1. Daily Multivitamin
  2. Vitamin C Plus Extended Release
  3. Natural Multi Carotene
  4. Ocean Essentials Balanced Health
  5. Saw Palmetto and Nettle Root (not included in Men’s Pack)

The Daily Multivitamin will help fill in the nutritional gaps in your daily diet. Vitamin C Plus Extended Release helps your body use its immune-system benefits more effectively. Natural Multi Carotene helps fight free radical damage from smoke, pollution, and exercise. It also helps protect your eyes with lutein and zeaxanthin. Ocean Essentials Balanced Health helps support memory, learning, and concentration with DHA¹ omega 3s. Balanced Health may also reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. Nutrilite Saw Palmetto and Nettle Root is not included in the Men’s Pack, but can be purchased separately. It helps you maintain a healthy prostate and normal urinary flow.

Grooming products will help you smell good and look good! Women love it when a man smells good. Personal hygiene is a key component of being fit and fabulous over 50! Body Series Refreshing Body Wash has a very clean, pleasant smell, but not overpowering. Moisturize your skin with Body Series Hand and Body lotion. It conditions your skin with oatmeal protein and protects your skin from the sun with SPF-8. If you prefer bar soap, Body Series Family Bar Soap is a biodegradable bar moisturizes, cleanses, and deodorizes skin, and features a unique Soap Saver Base which is designed to stick the sliver remnant soap into the new bar to reduce waste.

To address thinning hair, Satinique Anti-Hairfall Shampoo contains patented Enerjuve™ Complex, invigorates fragile, fine, or thinning hair while reducing hair loss from breakage. Satinique Anti-Hairfall Conditioner, when used with Satinique Anti-Hairfall Shampoo and Satinique Scalp Tonic, helps restore fullness by leaving hair looking thicker.

Our final grooming tip for men over 50 has to do with hairs growing in places like your ears, nose, and eyebrows. Hairs grow slowly and you may not notice them in your ears, nose, and eyebrows, but women do notice them! Eyebrow hairs can get long and bushy. A “unibrow” is when the eyebrows grow together. Take special care to clip nose, ear, and eyebrow hairs with a nose ears and eyebrows clipper. Male grooming tools are very helpful to men over 50.
