The most common over-50s makeup mistake?

Using the same techniques you learned at 20.

As you age your skin texture changes dramatically. So the products you once loved start to let you down. Leaving your face dry, cakey, and looking more wrinkled than it truly is. 

But don’t worry – you don’t need a complete makeup overhaul. All it takes is a few simple tweaks

For glowing results which work with your skin – not against it.

Prime For Success

A great makeup look starts with skin prep. The true secret to hydrated, crease-free skin.

Start with a light moisturiser on a cleansed face. This will smooth and hydrate your complexion. Ensuring your makeup stays put, without your skin looking dry and flaky within hours. 

Younger You Skin Cream is perfect for this step. Not only hydrating but also smoothing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. 

Foundation – Less Is More

When wrinkles and discolouration appear, you may be tempted to cake on the foundation. But beware – heavy foundation ages you. Settling into wrinkles unflatteringly.

So choose a light formula, such as a BB or CC cream. And if you prefer to stick to your trusty foundation, mix a few drops into your moisturiser. 

Adding a subtle tint, without weighing on your complexion. 

And for tackling complexion issues at the root, try Dark Spot Vanish – Dr. Sister’s expert formula for dramatically fading dark spots in weeks.

Ditch The Powder Blush

Ageing doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to your blush. In fact, a youthful flush can be very flattering on mature skin.

But just like heavy foundations, powders can emphasise every crease and fold. Making your skin look dry, and deepening your wrinkles.

On the other hand, a cream-based product will hydrate your skin beautifully. For a natural, hydrated look which will embrace your skin’s texture. 

Lip Secrets 

As you age your lips might start losing their natural, fuller shape and shine. But this doesn’t mean a life of boring, colourless lips.

Like with your skin, priming is everything. 

So, start with a lip balm, to remove any chapping. Then line your lips with a lip pencil, to accentuate their natural shape. Opt for soft, nude pencil shades for a natural effect. 

It’s also best to avoid matte lipsticks, as these make your lips seem dry and wrinkled. Instead, choose creamy formulas.

Easy On The Eyes  

Your eyelids are extremely delicate. So never skip the moisturiser and eye cream on the lids. Steer away from powders here too. 

Cream eyeshadows will blend more seamlessly, without damaging your skin. 

And if you have thinning lashes, avoid extensions or fake lashes. As these will further weaken your natural lashes and eyelids. 

Lash Saviour is the perfect tool to add to your makeup routine. Dr. Sister’s groundbreaking lash-enhancing serum, for added volume and strength.

Define Your Eyebrows

Sadly, ageing means sparse, thinning brows. But don’t despair – modern brow makeup can look extremely natural.

Define your brow arch with a soft brow pencil. Make sure you comb with an eyebrow brush to even out any pencil lines. 

Alternatively, try an eyebrow gel for extra volume. The gel coats and thickens your brows, lifting the look of your entire face. 

Plus, here’s a secret: Lash Saviour works for brows too! To thicken and restore youthful brows, try it on your lashes and eyebrows each evening.

Sculpt Your Jowls

Jowls are a “problem area” for many. They are much harder to hide than sparse brows or dull skin… but not impossible.

Most mature women try to disguise their jowls with a thick line of contour, which can look unnatural.

To hide jowls subtly and effectively, less is more.

By using just a dot of contour right on your jowls, you can seamlessly hide them. This simple technique lifts and sculpts your face beautifully.

Flawless Routine

And there you have it – a surefire makeup routine which celebrates your skin, instead of trying to mask it.

Without having to say goodbye to all your favourite beauty habits…

Will you give these tips a try?

Finding the perfect skincare routine is crucial, especially after 50.

As time passes, your complexion can become weakened, leading to irritation and dryness. But a simple routine can be just what you need, to help you feel confident at any age!

So here’s how to create your perfect skincare ritual, step by step. 

Cleansing: A Fresh Start

Before you apply any products, always start by using a gentle cleanser…

To ensure your skin is free from any pollutants, which could cause blocked pores and irritation. 

Choose a gentle, hydrating cleanser to remove impurities without stripping your skin of its natural oils.

Cleansing will help prepare your skin for the next steps, ensuring your skincare products are absorbed effectively. 

Hydration: Lock in Moisture 

After you’ve cleansed, it’s now important to rehydrate your skin. 

A quality anti-ageing moisturiser will not only help to replenish and lock in moisture, but also target fine lines and wrinkles. 

For a “youthful-infusion”, giving your skin just what it’s craving. 

We recommend Dr. Sister’s Younger You for this step. 

Start by warming it up between fingers and then apply gently in upwards circular motions for the best results. 

Use this morning and night for best results. 

Anti-Ageing Superheroes

Now is the time to use products for specific skin concerns. Such as dark spots, acne scars, or hyperpigmentation.

For this step consider using Dr. Sister’s Dark Spot Vanish. 

Helping you get rid of dark spots and achieve an even, youthful complexion at any age. 

Apply this gently with your ring finger, to avoid tugging on any sensitive skin. Use on your face, chest, neck or any other parts of your body, as needed.

If you’d like to target  sagging, crepey skin you could choose Crepe Rewind. For a smoother, tighter look on all areas of your body, such as arms, chest or even your legs. 

Sun Protection: Shield Your Skin 

Protecting your skin from the sun’s UV rays is non-negotiable. 

So for your next step, we recommend using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least an SPF30. 

Use this daily in the morning, after you’ve applied your moisturiser. And don’t forget to do this even on cloudy days!

To safeguard your skin from further damage and premature ageing. 

And if you want to go the extra mile…

Don’t forget your neck, chest and other parts of your body, which might also get exposed to sunlight.

Ritual for Your Eyes Only

Last but not least come your eyes, one of the most sensitive areas of your body…

And one that can quickly give away your age, if plagued with crow’s feet, dull skin and under-eye circles. 

Which is why we recommend using a light, gentle eye cream, to relieve puffiness and reduce the appearance of dark circles and fine lines.

Don’t forget to also apply this gently, using your ring finger.

The best time for an eye cream is as part of your night-time routine. As during the night your skin cells regenerate and you naturally produce more collagen…

So, combining this natural process with a targeted eye cream, will help combate signs of ageing and revitalise the skin around your eyes.

A Boost From Within

When caring for your skin, you don’t have to stick to the surface. 

So the best way to fully boost your skincare results is to also nourish your skin from within

Dr. Sister’s Inner Beauty is the perfect choice. A unique beauty enhancing formula with all the powerful nutrients your body needs…For healthy, smoother skin with just one capsule! 

And what’s more…

Inner Beauty can also help you achieve stronger, healthier hair and nails. For a younger-looking, glowing appearance from top to bottom.

Bonus Tip

Did you know thinning, dull-looking lashes and eyebrows can also reveal your age? 

These might not be part of your usual skincare routine, but with a little extra care they can truly transform your look!

For this we suggest using a natural lash and eyebrow serum as your very last step. Helping you regain thick, strong, glowing lashes and healthy, shaped eyebrows.

So why not try out Dr. Sister’s Lash Saviour serum…to help you look as young as you feel! 

Consistency: Stick to Your Ritual

As always, consistency is key to radiant, youthful-looking skin. 

So, stick to your ritual and be patient. With consistent care you will start to notice some amazing results! 

And remember: simple is best. Skincare over 50 doesn’t have to be complicated. 

By following these easy steps, which cater to your skin’s changing needs…You too can achieve a youthful, radiant look.

So you can age gracefully and confidently.
