Unlock 7 Science-Backed Secrets To Timeless Beauty

Hey Beautiful!

As we age, our skin goes through a variety of changes, such as becoming less elastic, drier, and more prone to fine lines, wrinkles and hyperpigmentation. 

However, there are plenty of ways to help you look younger and radiant with the right skincare and makeup routine. 

Here are 7 beauty tips to help you achieve a youthful glow:

1. Focus on Moisturizing:

One of the most critical steps in your skincare routine is to keep your skin hydrated. 

As you age, your skin naturally becomes drier, so it's essential to invest in a good moisturizer, like our Whipped Olive Oil Face Butter, that suits your skin type. 

A study published in the International Journal of Cosmetic Science in 2013, found that topical application of olive oil improved the skin's barrier function, which can help prevent moisture loss and maintain the skin's hydration levels. 

This can be particularly beneficial for mature skin, which tends to be drier and more prone to dehydration.

2. Don't Skip Sunscreen:

Sun damage is one of the leading causes of premature aging, such as wrinkles, fine lines, and age spots. 

A study conducted by researchers at the University of Queensland in Australia, was published in the Annals of Internal Medicine in 2013. The study followed 903 adults under the age of 55 over the course of four and a half years.

At the end of the study, researchers found that the group instructed to use sunscreen every day had 24% less skin aging than the group that used sunscreen at their own discretion. This included a reduction in wrinkles, fine lines, and hyperpigmentation. 

So make sure to choose a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of around 30 or higher and apply it generously before going outside.

3. Use the Right Serum:

Adding a serum to your skincare routine can help improve the texture and appearance of your skin and stimulate collagen production. 

For those with mature skin, using facial serums with antioxidants, humectants and peptides can be especially beneficial in improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven texture.

When it comes to choosing a facial serum for mature skin, look for products that contain ingredients like hyaluronic acid, vitamin C, retinol, or peptides, that have proven efficacy. 

4. Exfoliate Properly:

Exfoliating regularly can help remove dead skin cells and promote cell turnover, which can help your skin look smoother and brighter. 

However, be gentle when exfoliating, especially if you have sensitive skin, and avoid using harsh scrubs that can damage your skin. 

We recommend using our Brighten & Reveal Exfoliating Pads 2- 3 times a week and don’t forget to gently exfoliate around your orbital bone area, too, for softer and smoother looking eyes.

5. Choose the Right Makeup:

When it comes to makeup, it's important to choose products that enhance your natural features without emphasizing fine lines and wrinkles. 

Avoid using heavy foundations, especially around your eye area, that can settle into fine lines and make them more visible. 

Instead, choose a lightweight tinted moisturizer that includes primer, like our Priming Duo, and follow it up with a light application of your favorite full coverage foundation on the areas you need coverage most to avoid it being too heavy.

6. Don't Forget Your Eye Area:

As we age, our eyes can start to look tired and dull. 

To brighten up your eyes, start with a brightening eye cream that contains caffeine, then use a creamy concealer to cover any dark circles and invest in a good eye treatment to help define and lengthen your lashes. 

We recommend using our Eye Dream of Coffee, Photo Touch Concealer, and Organic Lash and Brow Serum.

7. Add a Touch of Color:

Adding a touch of color to your makeup routine can help you look more youthful and radiant. 

Choose a red cream blush to brighten up the apples your cheeks and use a touch of the same color on your lips or experiment with lipsticks in warm, peachy tones that compliment your skin tone and help give you a healthy glow. 

In summary, taking care of your skin with the right skincare routine and choosing the right makeup can help you look younger and more radiant. With these beauty tips, you can enhance your natural beauty and feel confident at any age.
