As we age, our skin changes and sometimes it can be a difficult journey to navigate…
As a 60-something woman myself, I know firsthand the struggles of seeing our skin change through the years.
I remember feeling frustrated and powerless when I noticed my skin starting to sag and wrinkle, and the emotional impact it had on me was profound.
But the good news is that with the right knowledge, we can embrace our skin and age gracefully.
My journey started when I realised that I need to take matters into my own hands and not give up on my skin…
But let’s not leave something quite worth-mentioning behind: ageless beauty isn't just about the products you use. It's also about lifestyle choices.
Over the years, I've learned a thing or two about skincare and wellness that have helped me along my journey.
And I want to share with you these tips along with a few myths.
Let’s start with a few short tips that have helped me along my journey but sometimes we tend to forget about.
1. Hydration is key
But let's face it, drinking enough water throughout the day can be a challenge, especially if you're busy or on-the-go.
That's why I made it a habit to track my water intake each day.
Whether it's using a water bottle with measurements or a hydration app, keeping track of my water intake has helped me stay on top of my hydration and maintain healthy, glowing skin.
Exercise and a healthy diet can also work wonders for your skin and overall health…
Exercise increases blood flow to the skin, which can help give you a healthy glow.
Plus, staying active can help reduce stress, which can also take a toll on your skin!
2. Also don't forget the power of self-care
Taking time to do things that make you happy and relaxed can have a positive impact on your well-being.
Whether it's a bubble bath, a yoga class, or a good book, prioritize self-care in your daily routine.
3. Let’s talk myths.
Myth #1: You need to use many and expensive products to achieve glowing skin
One of the biggest myths I've encountered is that you need to use complicated, expensive products to achieve great skin.
In fact, many expensive products may actually contain harmful ingredients or unnecessary additives that can irritate the skin or cause allergic reactions.
I believe in simplicity when it comes to skincare routines.
Using too many products, especially those with harsh ingredients, can damage the skin barrier and lead to further skin problems…
Myth #2: You need to start your routine in your 20s to see visible results later on
Another common myth is that you need to start using anti-aging products in your 20s or it will be too late afterwards.
While starting a skincare routine early on can certainly help maintain healthy skin, it's never too late to start taking care of your skin.
Whether you're in your 20s, 30s, 40s, or beyond, incorporating a consistent skincare routine into your daily life can help you achieve healthy, radiant skin at any age.
Myth #3: You should exfoliate every day
Exfoliating can help remove dead skin cells and leave your skin looking brighter and smoother, but doing it every day can be too harsh for your skin.
Over-exfoliation can cause irritation, dryness, and even breakouts.
What I’ve learned is that it’s recommended to exfoliate once or twice a week, depending on your skin type.
Myth #4: You don’t need sunscreen on cloudy days
UV rays can penetrate through clouds and cause damage to your skin, even on overcast days.
It’s important to wear sunscreen with at least SPF 30 every day, even if the weather is cloudy.
This can help prevent premature ageing, dark spots, and even skin cancer.
