Aging and Beauty: Hair and Skin Care Routine

While we all want to age gracefully, that isn’t always the case. Some of us have to experiment with products while others are blessed with phenomenal genetics. As we age, our bodies will change in a number of different ways. This requires us to reevaluate our beauty routines, find new products, and even start eating different foods. Our skin and hair are the two areas in which we will experience the first signs of aging. For those of you currently trying to find a new hair and skin care routine, check out the tips and product recommendations below to maintain your youth.

Anti-Aging Hair Care

For years we applied heat to our hair daily, used tools or accessories that damage our hair, and we never stopped to think how this could be harming us in the future. It’s not until the noticeable signs of aging in our 30s-40s where we start to take action. Common signs of aging hair are dryness and dullness. The first step to a healthy hair care routine is figuring out your hair needs. Below are daily tips to maintain healthy hair as you age.

Moisturize

As mentioned, a noticeable sign of aging hair is dryness. The older we get, the harder it is for our scalp to produce natural oils to keep our hair conditioned. Investing in a good quality shampoo and conditioner will help give your hair the moisture it needs. Look for a shampoo and conditioner that moisturizes or repairs hair.

Be delicate

Your hair is delicate and will need more TLC then you realize, especially when wet. If you’re a vigorous towel rubber when you get out of the shower, stop it! A towel will yank your hair if you aren’t being cautious. Ditch the cotton towel and replace it with a microfiber towel. A microfiber towel is designed to be gentler with your hair and dries it faster!

Most hair accessories can cause a lot of damage if you are using them every day or not using the right ones. Ever take down your ponytail to find 5 strands of hair wrapped around the band or that you have this awful crease to deal with? If that is the case, it’s time say goodbye to bumps and split ends and hello to a spiral traceless hair ring.

 A little oil never hurt nobody

Avoid washing your hair every day. Shampooing your hair removes the natural oils your hair needs to maintain moisture. As mentioned, with age our hair gets dry because our scalp is unable to produce a healthy amount of natural oils. Consider washing your hair every two to three days. If you’re someone whose hair gets really oily after one day try incorporating a dry shampoo into your daily hair care routine.

Boost and Shine

Preserving the youthful shine of your hair starts with the overall health. According to eSalon “73% of women don’t know the ingredients in their hair care products.” Paying attention to the products you’re using and the little things that could be harming your hair all play a big role into the overall health.

Next time you wash your hair, rinse the conditioner out with cold water. Cold water will close the hair cuticle, sealing in the moisture from your conditioner. This will also make it easier for you to style your hair and retain moisture.

A product that you should consider incorporating into your routine is a hair serum. Serums will add shine, nourish dry hair, and tame frizz and flyaways. However, there are multiple serums depending on what your hair needs are. Before buying or using a serum make sure you know what you want the end result of this serum to be.

One obvious sign of aging hair is grey. As we get older more and more grey’s will appear. If going all grey isn’t an option for you and coloring your hair at the salon is getting to be too expensive, try an at home hair dye that will give your hair that youthful boost you’re looking for.

Use quality tools

If you’re serious about your hair health, then the tools you’re using should be nothing but the best, starting with your hair brush. Because hair is more delicate when wet, you need a brush that won’t continue to snag or break your hair when trying to detangle it. Wet brush is an affordable hair brush that runs through wet or dry hair effortlessly without pulling or tugging. Also, they come in adorable colors and patterns!

 Anti-Aging Skin Care

As we age, our skin loses elasticity, causing it to sag and form wrinkles. If you’re someone that has been using the same products since your 20s and you’re now entering your 30s or 40s, it might be time to look into a new skin care regime – whether that’s getting rid of or adding new products to your daily skin care routine or incorporating a new technique. Here are a few tips and product recommendations to consider for an anti-aging skin care routine.

Remove Dirt and Makeup

Most cleansers won’t dissolve all pollutants your skin comes in contact with throughout the day. Before cleansing, consider wiping away any dirt, makeup, and oil that has built up throughout the day using a gentle makeup removing cleanser or every girls favorite, makeup wipes!

Cleanse

Once you’ve removed any dirt or makeup it’s time to cleanse! It’s important to pay attention to ingredients in skin care products, not only for allergy reasons but because some ingredients might cause your skin concerns to worsen. For example, avoid any cleansers with sodium lauryl sulfate as it can be harsh on aging skin. Origins Check and Balances is a gentle cleanser for aging skin and doesn’t contain sodium lauryl sulfate.

*Socialite Tip: Cleansers don’t always have to be expensive…my go-to cleanser is under $10!!!

Exfoliate

Our skin cell regeneration slows down as we age so it’s important to incorporate an exfoliator into your regime. Exfoliating your face two to three times a week will help with dullness, get rid of dry unwanted skin cells, and bring new cells to the surface giving you a smooth youthful glow. Another reason why exfoliating is important is because it also fades age spots, refines fine lines, and stimulates collagen. This particular exfoliator will be your new best friend.

Serum

Anti-aging serums are relatively new to the beauty industry, so if you aren’t currently using one here is why you should. Serums contain the highest concentration of active ingredients that are able to penetrate into the skin more deeply. After cleansing you will want to apply an anti-aging serum by pressing it into your skin. Again, your skin type and concerns will determine the type of serum you will want to incorporate into your daily routine. Dr. Andrew Weil for Origins Mega-Bright Skin is perfect for correcting skin tone while Clarins Double Serum complete targets all skin ageing concerns.

Moisturize and SPF

A cream containing retinol is the best if you want to keep your skin looking youthful for as long as possible. Because a retinoid cream helps new skin form it will make your skin more vulnerable during the day, so consider using only at night.

Now that summer is approaching using an SPF every day is necessary. While this is something you should be doing even in the winter months, its most important during the summer when we spend most of our time outside in the sun. Not only will an SPF shield your skin from harmful UV rays, but it will prevent premature aging, enhance the health of your skin and lower the risk of skin cancer. If you want to kill two birds with one stone try a moisturizer with an SPF.

Everyone’s skin care and hair care routine is going to be different based on type, age, and concerns. Hopefully these tips were able to point you in the right direction if you’re currently looking to change up your routine. I’d love to hear from you ladies that have seen a significant change by switching up your routine focusing more on anti-aging products. Are there certain products you love?

  1. Oils and moisturizers and things can help keep your hair from aging but the best thing you can do by far is to stop using heated styling tools. Learn to embrace your natural curls, or straightness or whatever you have. You’ll be glad you did when you’re older.

  2. If you alternate your facial moisturizer with one that builds a bit of colour, you’ll have a healthy glow that will make it look as though you just spent the weekend on the beach.

  3. Thanks for sharing! Yes, retinol is a really good thing for our skin.
    I recommend starting with over-the-counter retinol cream as it’s much weaker than prescription-strength retinoid cream, such as Retin-A, and it’s less harsh to your skin.
