Turning 40? You are still young! However, your kids, hubby and job can drive you crazy and make you age quickly. Fortunately, you can turn your forties into sweet twenties by working out, eating well and applying makeup. Here are ten inspiring beauty tips for you.
Olive oil works wonders
Most middle-aged women swear by olive oil. This oil keeps the skin radiant and gets rid of crow’s feet. If your eye area gets really dry, just tap olive oil on before going to sleep. Wake up the next day with inconspicuous “laugh lines”.
Confidence is key
Confidence is your secret beauty weapon. If you have been through a serious skin condition, a therapeutic photo session can help you see how gorgeous you are. Just apply eyeliner and pose for the cameras.
Protect your skin
You don’t have to stay indoors all the time. Go out and enjoy the summer glow. Never worry about sensitive skin. You won’t suffer sunburns as long as you apply sunscreen. By wearing sunscreen every day, you can prevent skin cancers and early ageing. Or even see a skin specialist just to be safe.
Accentuate your eyes
Eyeliners are hot and flashy. They make your eyes look more youthful and awake. Using a soft pencil, draw a line at the base of your lashes. For more definition, trace the line with a liquid formula. Finish the look with lipstick.
Overpower the puff
When you are puffy, wet a clean cloth with warm water and put it over your face. It softens smile lines and calms swollen eyes. Use eyeshadow to blend browns and nudes on your eyelids to make them look firmer.
Don’t skip skin care
Whatever skin condition you have, a facial can alleviate it. Spa treatments keep your skin fresh and moisturized. So spend a day at the spa. Besides facials, use cleaning towelettes or face wipes to remove makeup without affecting your sensitive skin.
Make healthy choices
Eat well and stay fit. That’s all. Being energized eases your day to day pressures and enhances your outside appearance. Dieting and exercising aid in weight loss. For an extra boost, use pore scrubs to keep your skin smooth and bright.
Remember to moisturize
Moisturizing keeps you young. Use a lotion to help with ageing and a lip balm to hydrate your lips. This protects your skin from the sun. Whether it is warm or hot outside, your skin will remain smooth as a baby’s bum.
Strive for self-care
In this go-go-go world, we often forget to take care of ourselves. But self-care is so vital. Therefore, slow down, be less serious and pamper yourself. Consider personal training as a way to stay fit and healthy.
Be happy always
Relationships, work and studies can make you grumpy or stress you out. Stress may speed up the ageing phase. You do not want to look like a 60-year-old granny when you are just 40. When you spend time with family and friends or go on nature walks, you can live a happier life and age slowly and peacefully.
