This is my gorgeous mom and recently I shared her on my instastories. I immediately got so many responses on how young my mom looked and the key question I got asked was how she took care of her skin! So here it is, advice on how to look 30 when you are over 60.
Since I can remember, my mom has put her skincare regime as #1. Creams, serums, masks, she does them nightly and she would lecture me on taking care of mine as I got older. Well, I should have listened sooner, as I age, I’m taking her advice seriously as I want to look like her when I’m her age!
Top 3 tips from my mom:
- Get facials monthly and more if you have the budget. She believes that facials have not only helped her with her youthful appearance but each time she goes she also learns tips and tricks or products she loves in order to take care of herself.
- Stay out of the sun. My mom has always hidden her face underneath a hat or umbrella. Me, on the other hand, I’m doomed. I’m like a sun worshipper and have been since I was 7. I’m trying to reverse this damage but it’s hard when I go to tropical areas often and love a good tan.
- Sleep and rest well. She is an excellent sleeper. I wish I could sleep like her, peaceful, well rested and from couch to bed, she can rest anywhere!
Top 5 products she loves:
Consistency is key and try different products. Some of these are pricey but as she had said before, it is more expensive to get plastic surgery or if you can’t afford facials, you should be splurging on skin products. Your face is the first thing people see!
Here’s hoping that I look like her over 60!! Love you mom xoxo.
