As much as we try to escape it, aging is an inevitable part of life. But that doesn’t mean we can’t at least look good while doing it! The body goes through so many changes as we get older. For example, your facial features may lose their fullness, wrinkles will begin to develop, and many experience drier skin as they get older too. Ultimately, your skin will have different needs throughout your life. This also means you’ll need to change your makeup routine to adapt to the changes in your skin and facial features.
Getting older doesn’t mean you can’t play and have fun with makeup like you once did in your younger years. With the right makeup tips, you can achieve a youthful look. Just try your best to avoid these 10 makeup mistakes many seniors make!
One of the biggest beauty mistakes many people make is not having a good skincare routine. Establishing a good skincare routine can do a lot for mature skin. It can help your skin stay hydrated, help with wrinkles, and keeps your skin looking its best. Better yet, when you take care of your skin, you’ll also find that your makeup will apply better too.
Some skincare tips for mature skin include wearing sunscreen daily, using the right moisturizers for your skin type, and making sure you stay hydrated. Further, adequate water intake will help your skin feel plumper and will help improve its elasticity.
Finally, another skincare step seniors should do is exfoliate. Dr. Steven J. Pearlman, a well-known New York City plastic surgeon, explains “The outer layer is a roof of dead skin, and it thickens as you age, so you need to exfoliate to see more of the fresher skin,”
