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?

Embarking on a skincare journey to look younger this new year…But not sure how you’ll stick to your resolution? Well, you’re not the only one.  

In fact, studies show most people abandon their New Year’s resolutions by the end of March. 

Which is why we’ve put together a simple guide to help you achieve your skincare goals effortlessly in 2024. 

Whether your resolution is to get clearer, spot-free skin or reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. It’s all easier than you think. So keep on reading…

Set Specific Goals

When starting off, limit your goals to two or three, to avoid overwhelming yourself. Start with something small and realistic

Instead of setting a goal for better, younger-looking skin, be more specific. Here’s some ideas to get you started:

✅Cleanse & moisturise every day

✅Use SPF every day

✅Stop going to sleep with makeup on

✅Exfoliate once or twice a week

✅Start using an eye cream every night

These goals are more easy to track and feel less daunting to achieve. Start with a couple and slowly build up.

Simplify 

Complex routines can feel overwhelming, especially at first. Instead, start with a couple simple steps

Focus on the essentials: cleansing, moisturising, and SPF protection.

This way you can  build the base for a successful skincare routine. Without taking on too much  at once. 

It might seem slow, but this ensures sustainable progress. Mastering one step before moving to the next, making it easier to stick to.

After a few weeks, you can  add more targeted care. Such as a dark spot cream or a skin tightening serum. Follow this for a few weeks before adding a further step if you’d like. 

Bonus tip: take before and after photos to keep track of your progress and motivate yourself! 

Consistency Tips

Staying consistent can be challenging. So here are a few tips to help you follow your routine no matter what

1. Set Reminders. On your phone, tablet or watch. An alarm in the evening can quickly remind you to cleanse and apply your moisturiser before bed. 

2. Skincare Station. Try keeping all your skincare products in one place, such as a bathroom shelf. 

3. Prepare For Setbacks. Design a plan which accounts for potential challenges, such as an illness or busy days. If you’re too weak or tired for a whole routine, maybe just stick to washing your face. And don’t worry if you skip a few days. Just try to get back on track when you can. 

A Fresh Start 

Following your routine daily isn’t the only thing to help you achieve your goals. In fact, the tools you’re using could also play a huge role…

Pillowcases, eye masks, makeup brushes, even your phone screen. All these come in contact with your skin daily

So with the new year, make sure they are clean. As they could be harbouring bacteria, setting your skin goals back without you even realising. 

And don’t forget to check the product expiration dates. Expired products could stop you  seeing the results you’re after. 

Get Support

Enlist the help of friends or family. They can hold you accountable or even remind you to apply that SPF in the morning. 

You could also partner up with a friend who has similar skincare resolutions. This way you can form new habits, track progress and celebrate successes together.

And if you have any questions, Dr. Sister is always happy to hear from you and help you on your journey. 

New You In 2024…It’s Possible! 

Keeping your skincare resolutions isn’t just about starting strong…

It’s also about maintaining consistency and making gradual progress. By simplifying routines and starting with small, achievable goals you’ll find yourself on the path to success.

Enjoying healthier, glowing skin before long…

As the saying goes, Rome wasn’t built overnight. And the same is true for your skin! 

Now, you’ve heard Dr. Sister say it a lot…When it comes to skincare, consistency is key.  

No matter what your skin concern or your skin type is. Staying consistent with your beauty rituals and giving yourself enough time will lead to long-lasting results.

And here’s why…

_________________________________________________________________________

Skin Cycles

Your body loses dead skin cells and creates new ones constantly. In fact, it takes around thirty days for the new cells to be fully developed. 

And as you age this can take even longer. By the time you’re reached 50, new skin cells may need up to 60 days to complete just one skin cycle. 

This cycle can also get affected by other factors. Think of changing hormones, stress, your diet and even your environment (especially if you live in a city)…

Causing your skin to “slow down” and even your pores to clog up. 

But what does all this mean for your skincare?

Well, it’s simple. 

Since there’s new skin cells to the surface all the time, you want to keep nourishing these as best as possible. To boost your natural skin cell regeneration and keep your pores clear. 

Staying consistent with your skincare products will ensure your skin cycle is always supported

No matter what stage it’s at. 

_________________________________________________________________________

Products Need Time

It’s not just your skin needing time…

Your skincare products start working as soon as you apply them. But because of your skin’s natural cycle, it’ll take a few weeks or even a couple of months to see clear results.

Allowing for dead skin cells to be fully removed from your skin’s surface…

And for new, glowing healthy cells to reach the top. 

So we recommend giving your products at least six to eight weeks of consistent use, before you fully evaluate the results.

And don’t forget, once you’ve seen results, it’s time to maintain them!

So stay committed to making long-lasting habits. 

Here’s what to expect:

_________________________________________________________________________

Your Skin Is Unique

Everyone is different, so the same goes for your skin and your very own skin cycle. 

Even though some people can see results faster than others, or even enjoy clear skin without much effort…

This is not the reality for most of us. 

Different skin types, health conditions and your environment will affect your skin’s health. So take time to work out what works for you and your specific needs.

And be patient, giving your skin the daily nourishment it needs to look its best.

Tips To Help You Stay Consistent

It’s late at night, after a busy day and the last thing on your mind is doing your skincare. You might even be tempted to go to bed with your make-up still on…

We’ve all been there. 

So here’s some handy tips to help you stay consistent, even on the days you just haven’t got the energy. 

Move up your night routine

Don’t leave cleansing and applying your products to the very last minute. In fact we recommend doing your skincare as soon as you get back home, if you can. That way you don’t have to worry about fitting it in right before bed. 

And what’s more? This will actually allow plenty of time for your skin products to fully absorb and start working, well before your face hits that pillow. 

Track your results 

Take before and after pictures of your skin. This way you can easily keep track of your progress and use these to motivate you. This is especially important before you start using a new product. 

So, we suggest taking a photo of your skin at least once a month during your skincare journey. And do feel free to share your results with us. We’d love to celebrate your success! 

Find a buddy

Partner up with a friend who may have similar skincare goals. Forming new habits together will keep you motivated and accountable. This way you can share your goals and celebrate your results together.

It might be a cliché, but it’s true. Consistency is key

Visible results won’t happen overnight and can take anywhere between four to eight weeks. So, don’t forget: true skincare is an ongoing process. 

And there’s no better time to start looking after your skin (and yourself) than now. 

With some easy everyday changes and a simple skincare routine you can see truly amazing results.

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.
