If you are over 40, you may already find yourself obsessing over your beauty regimen at times. There are so many brands and products out there it is hard to know what to try. To make it even more overwhelming, not only is your skin different than everyone else’s but it is also different than it was when you were younger! This can make it especially tricky to find the right products for you. But fear not! Aging doesn’t have to be a bad thing. With these simple tricks up your sleeve you may not even notice it. Here are 4 beauty tips for women over 40.
Let Your Roots Grow Out
Contrary to popular belief, you don’t have to wait until you’re living in an assisted living community to let your hair turn grey. Naturally grey hair can be stunning at any age, especially if you choose to own it. Plus, the harsh chemicals in hair dye can be harmful and having your hair dyed can get expensive. Save that money as well as the time that upkeep takes and let your roots grow out. You may even end up liking the way it looks and at very least you’ll find it liberating.
Love The Skin You’re In
This may sound a little cliché, but it’s truly helpful. Learning to love yourself and your body is one of the most important lessons that will come with getting older. Realizing that you are beautiful just the way you are is something that will stick with you even as you age. Wrinkles, stretch marks, or grey hair won’t be able to change the love you have for yourself.
Keep It Simple
Keeping your beauty regimen simple and easy is one of the best ways to ensure that you will do it every morning/night, and consistency is key. Instead of using ten different products each day, see if you can get away with only using four or five. This will also make traveling and sticking to your regimen much easier.
Drink More Water
Drinking a lot of water is important all the time but even more so as you begin to age. This will keep your skin looking plump, hydrated, and glowy. It will also help you to feel better on the inside by giving you more energy and curbing your appetite. Carry a water bottle with you everywhere you go and soon drinking it will become second nature.
Getting older might not seem like a lot of fun, but you may find yourself looking and feeling better than ever before in your forties! Try these simple beauty tips and see what works for you.
