healthy senior woman with exercise towel and waterThe 60’s can be your decade of looking and feeling good about yourself. You’ve seen some of the changes in your skin and hair in your 50’s; and they do continue. Some you can help soften and some just become part of you. And it’s OK. After all, good living and experience does count!

Here are a few tips from the experts:

Continue with your moisturizing regimen and your creamy foundation.

Now, even a cream blush will last longer and not seep into the wrinkles. Smart Cover’s Two-in-One Glow Stick doubles as a cream blush and gives a hint of color on your cheeks and lips.

Use concealers every day to hide the dark eye circles that make you look tired all the time.

A concealer such as Smart Cover’s Perfect Touch Camouflage Crème helps hide the age spots, dark eye circles and all the fine lines that can show more with your thinning skin.

Lip liner is a lifesaver for lips, and helps soften the aging lip lines. At this point, you may notice that your lips seem to recede and need plumping with Smart Cover’s Lip Plumper Stick.

Hair color should be lighter not darker or full of highlights. We always say why go gray when you don’t have to or want to.

For some women who feel it’s time for some extra help with their wrinkles and aging skin, consult with a dermatologist or another board certified doctor who has experience with cosmetic procedures. There are many non-surgical choices such as injectables and laser treatments. Many injectables on the market offer different benefits. Botox, Dysport and Xeomin relax the muscles around the forehead and eyes. Fillers such as Restylane, Juvederm and Sculptra can sculpt the cheeks, furrows and other facials areas. There are also different types of laser treatments that re-stimulate the collagen in your skin and can also help with the age spots, rosacea and fine lines. And, Smart Cover will help cover the redness or bruising that you can get while healing from these procedures.

Stay tuned for skin care in your 70’s, 80’s and Beyond because it does matter!
