There are more than a few things you can do on your own that can help you regain your youthful looks and, what’s more important, help you feel good about who you are. Being a woman in 50s means that you have worked a lot to become who you are now. Dealing with life challenges and crisis leaves some traceable scars. The body fights stress the best way it can. However, you can help it get over some things more quickly by starting to take care of yourself as early as possible. Not tomorrow morning, today. And it’s never too early to do that, even if you are in your 30s or 40s and have a bunch of work at home and like no time whatsoever. You’re the queen in your own world; treat yourself that way and your body will reflect those feelings coming from the inside just like a magic mirror.
Every morning and every night before going to bed, take care of your face. Don’t skip even if you’re exhausted, nervous or it’s too late. Wash and hydrate you face and moisture it with the creams suitable for your skin type and budget. EVERY day, two times. Enjoy those moments of relaxation. Facial muscles get really tired during the day and the skin is constantly under the influence of the sun, wind and different fumes. Being regular and cleaning it every day is for this reason so important.
Next, try to get used to wearing subtle make-up on everyday basis, such as mascara, gentle brush and a nice lipstick. This is a simple touch, but it adds a lot to your inner beauty as well. Try to avoid any kind of glimmering products as these will just emphasis the lines on your face and draw more attention than necessary.
There are many alternatives to Botox and other kinds of processes that serve the same purpose. Some of those are cosmetic acupuncture, which is more natural and uses individual approach for each person. Acupuncture needles stimulate blood circulation in the areas where they are inserted, which is important for the production of collagen (helps the skin be firm and flexible). You can visit a skin rejuvenation clinic to help you determine the procedures that would suit you best. Being well-informed and having confidence in decisions you make is the best you can do for yourself. Don’t rush, don’t exaggerate, just take your time and decide what it is you really want.
Doing exercise is definitely a part of the whole process of feeling good about yourself. Whether it is yoga, light jogging or a team sport, it doesn’t matter as long as you do it regularly. Enjoyment is not something you’ll immediately feel, if you haven’t practiced earlier. But, believe me, the outcome after a few months is amazing!
Remember the last time you went for a massage? I do! I’ve never felt that kind of relaxation and stress-release at any other moment in my life. This is a real treat and your body needs it . It means you’re giving it the real honor it deserves. Massage is no longer considered to be a luxury and it wouldn’t be so difficult to treat yourself once in a while. It awakens the brain cells, as well as your body – an important tip on so many levels.
