Forget expensive beauty products and designer cosmetics.
For over 50s, we recommend keeping it simple when it comes to beauty. The most valuable tips are those that will keep your body healthy, and in turn help enhance you natural beauty. Read our money saving beauty tips that are also good for you and start adding them to your routine.
1. Prevent Puffy Eyes
First of all, make sure you are getting enough sleep each night. 7-8 hours a night is ideal. Second, make sure you have a supportive pillow. If you’re sleeping flat, hydration can pool around your eyes causing puffy eyes. Propping your head up will stop this pooling and minimize puffiness.
2. Drink 2 Liters of Water
Staying hydrated is one of the most important things you can do for your body. Try and drink at least 2 liters of water each day for optimum health. Drinking lots of water also has beauty benefits such as healthy looking skin. This is one money saving beauty tip you don’t want to ignore.
3. Wear Sunscreen
This is still one of the biggest beauty tips to follow, even in your 50s. Sunscreen will keep your skin looking healthy as well as prevent wrinkles. Invest in a quality sunscreen, and apply daily. If you’re looking to save money, you will find that sun protection products and sunscreen often go on sale at your favorite retailers so make sure you buy it when it’s on sale.
4. Treat Sunburn
If you didn’t follow Tip 3, then you will definitely need Tip 4. If you’ve been out in the sun and burnt yourself, it’s really important to treat your skin correctly. We recommend soothing aloe gels to stop stinging, followed by a good moisturizer. These types of products are beauty essentials, so keep an eye out on circulars and stock up when they’re on sale if you really want to save money.
5. Simple Make-up
Keep your make-up simple. There’s no need to waste money on expensive cosmetics and make-up products. Find a light, everyday foundation that works for your skin tone and follow with mascara and a quality lip balm for a natural look.
6. DIY Manicures
Instead of paying for a manicure, why not use that money to buy some nice nail polishes and do your own nails at home. You’ll soon find you have a great collection and that you’re saving money too.
