Experts share tips for looking youthful in your 50s

26 November 2014

When it comes to defying the laws of Ageing, who better to turn to for advice than the true experts – the quinquagenarians themselves? 1,500 females in their aged between 50 and 60 years old were asked what their top Anti-Ageing tips were – and they didn’t disappoint.

It was found that two thirds of women receive pearls of beauty wisdom from their mothers and grandmothers – a fact which may not come as such a surprise when you consider that experience often comes out on top.

One Skin Care Expert commented: “Women in this age bracket have the experience and confidence to understand that the secret to looking and feeling fantastic can’t be found in a jar, it’s a combination of good health, vitality and cherry picking beauty products designed to work on more mature skin”.

Top tips for looking youthful as you age include: moisturising beyond the face and down to the neck, maintaining a healthy diet and always removing makeup before bed.

Contrary to popular belief, today’s women in their fifties like to sleep, claiming to aim for at least eight hours’ sleep each night. In addition to plenty of rest, one in four of those polled said they followed a strict beauty and Skin Care regime, while almost a third of study participants admitted to spending more money on beauty products in their fifties than in their earlier years.
