Beauty In And Out: Sheryl Wilson

Yes, it’s a New Year! Maybe you were like me and had a quiet evening just reflecting and thanking God for my blessings and/or you celebrated, wore a party hat, ate your share of hor d’oeuvres, threw confetti all over the house, used noisemakers!

You could have been singing karoke Auld Lang Syne perhaps? Pretty old, but YOU don’t have to be!  Time to get back to basics, but basics that work!!!

You know you want to do something to make changes and you know that resolutions don’t always stick past a month or so, such as exercising, drinking more water, cutting back on desserts, sleeping more! Definitely good moves for the New Year, let alone anytime! 

These past holidays made some of us take inventory of ourselves. As we may have been getting ready to be with family or friends that we hadn’t seen in a while; reviewing lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity and thinking, “Oh no, I’ve got to do something to take care of this skin” but where do I begin”? At that moment, you tried some of those temporary “just apply this under your eyes on bags” and yes they disappeared for the day, but what about something long-term, ongoing, cumulative? Sounds hopeful? Can there be basic skincare over 50? Well let’s investigate! 

What Will You Need To Start The Ball Rolling?

1.A Personalized Targeted Evaluation Of Your Skin:

Who does that? Not many unless you pay the big bucks for it. But if you really look, you may be able to find some who will do it without a pressure sell, ones who will share information, because you need it to make the most intelligent choices for yourself!

Your skin care and health program needs to be determined based on your external living conditions (the skin care you currently use or don’t, sun, pollution, blue light damage from cell phone cameras, lap tops, televisions) and internal living conditions, (such as diet, medications, medical conditions, water intake, lack of supplementation).

Approaching 40, as hormonal changes begin to show the signs of aging; skin, hair, nails and energy, you will definitely begin to notice a shift and you will want to do preventive work, before further damage is done. Over 50, you will want additional hydration and elasticity care! Skincare over 50 adds a tiny bit more steps to your list.

Shhh, Don’t Tell, Or Do Tell – It’s Your Choice:

Now here are some other potentials for you to germinate on! Depending upon the level of lines, wrinkles, loss of elasticity, do you need to “go under the knife”, have a series of laser or micro-needling treatments, cool or hot treatments, spun plasma infusions, fillers?!  Well maybe, but even if you do spend those hard-earned dollars on these procedures, this is YOU and YOU have to be happy with what you see and what you present to the world.

However, there is a but here or a yet. You must also maintain those treatments with excellent skincare to expand their longevity, to get the best value, and ultimate optimum results. HOW? Well as described above, let’s get back to the basics! Not just soap and water and what used to be called “astringent” and a moisturizer and eye cream!  

2. Cleanse And Exfoliate:

Let’s throw improper cleansing, such as your soap out the window. Just make sure nobody slips! You don’t want a lawsuit! Soap does not breakdown or emulsify debris, grime, makeup, oil, nor, pollution. And if you want your products to absorb and do their job, you must eliminate all of the above. Plus, eliminate dead skin (Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate), the biggest culprit of them all. Let’s not forget clogged pores, the second biggest culprit. With both of those blockages, nothing is getting in. You cannot get water to flush through a clogged drain unless you unplug it. Often times that has to be professionally done, just like your skin care needs to be professionally evaluated.

3. Time To Noursih:

Those new little baby skin cells that have been exposed, (because you cleansed and exfoliated) need nourishment.  Give your skin powerful antioxidants, such as the Lotus Seed Extract that can live up to 1288 years and is clinically proven to resist and defy aging, SOD, Catalase, Vitamin C, D, E, Lutein, Lycopene!  If you can find that in one serum, you are golden!!! Be careful with your Lotus choices, as it is not the flower itself, but the seed that holds the potent antioxidant power!

Basic Skincare Over 50 Is Key:

4. Protection Is Key:  

Please make sure that a good sunblock, minimum 30, is applied daily all over face, neck, décolletage, whether indoors (blue light damage from fluorescent light, cell phone, laptop) or outdoors in the sun. Use sunscreen even on an overcast or rainy day to shield those new skin cells from oxidative damage!

5. Replenish:

And finally fifth, REPLENISH! Bathe your skin in night treatment before sleepy time that will repair, renew, restore, and most importantly regenerate new healthy skin cells!
