10 Perfect tips for older skin

10 Perfect tips for older skin

As you get older, skin loses its natural elasticity.  Amount of vitamins drops and it becomes saggy, wrinkly and dry. Because of this, makeup process changes drastically. Unlike young women who have liberty to try out different things, older women use makeup in a purely functional way.

But, due to this fact, it also means that you have to be very careful. There is a list of dos’ and don’t when using makeup. In order to get you properly informed, I have made a list of 10 tips that should help you with your skin.  

  1. Try to put makeup without using powder. You can use concealer to cover bags under your eyes or some smaller imperfection but you shouldn’t overdo it. Powder tends to fall into pores and it puts focus on wrinkles instead of hiding them.
  2. If you still think that you need powder no matter what, choose lighter tones. Powder should be similar to your skin colour. In fact, it is even better if you buy a hydrating cream. Given that you have dry skin, it will provide the necessary hydration.
  3. Women who plucked their eyebrows when they were young should try eyebrow makeup in form of a powder instead of eyebrow pencil. If your eyebrows are rare, you should try using some more discrete solutions. Pencil will only highlight your eyebrows which are already very thin as it is. Colour can be applied with squared brush so that you can get a softer and more natural appearance of eyebrows. Do not forget to pluck strain hair!
  4. Avoid using eye shadow that has glitter. Instead of distracting a person, they will only highlight the wrinkles. It is best if you use eyeshadow which is not shiny. Matte shadow will not give good results when it comes to mature skin.
  5. Use a brush for your eyes and darker powdered eye shadow. Write a thin line as close to eyelashes as possible. The effect will be much lighter and it will lead to a better appearance. You will thank me when you take a look in the mirror.
  6. Brushes for blush can be too little and too thin. Because of this, you can easily make a mistake while putting makeup. Use a brush for powder as it is much wider. Do not stop with your cheeks but also apply blush on your chin, temple and forehead which will make your entire face look healthier.
  7. The perfect blush colour is the same colour your cheeks get when they become red. Apply thin layers of colour. This will make your skin look more natural and makeup will last longer.
  8. If your skin is naturally dry, instead of using blush in powder, make sure to use creamy type. After hydrating cream, apply colour on your cheekbone and rub it in while the skin is still moist.
  9. Like rest of your body, skin will lose their natural plump appearance. Their edges will lose their definition. Enhance the edges by using a lip pencil.
  10. Avoid lip pencils that are darker than your natural lipstick as it will make you look tacky. Choose nuances that are according to the colour of your lips. This tone will emphasise your lip contours and prevent lipstick smudges.

With these tips, you are on your way to restoring your youthful appearance. Always remember: make sure to hydrate your skin properly. Most of the problems come from dehydration and exaggeration. Make sure not to overdo it and use colours that are similar to your natural skin tone.

The Importance Of Home Removal Vans

On average, more than six million people move home every single year. There are a number of common reasons for deciding to move house that include better job opportunities, being closer to family or even needing more space because of a growing family. Moving home doesn’t come without a period of stressful organisation such as moving children into new schools and rerouting your existing post. Thankfully, the moving process doesn’t need to be too stressful when you hire an experienced man and van service in the London area.

Strength

The biggest difficulty when moving home is all the large pieces of furniture. Thing beds and wardrobes can be heavy to lift and difficult to negotiate through doorways and tight passages. Home removal vans are obviously big enough to store these items and transport them safely to the intended destination. Not only that, but removal men are naturally strong, due to the nature of their job, and through their experience, are used to carrying large items of furniture through tight spaces.

Geographical Knowledge

Anyone who drives for a living will naturally build up a strong geographical knowledge through spending so much time on the roads. They will also learn the best routes to take in order to get to various places. This is especially important due to large vehicles not being able to travel down various roads if there are low bridges. Hiring an removal service is an advantage as they will know the best route to take to get your belongings to your new home as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Fewer Trips

While it is possible to hire a removal van that you can drive yourself, the chances are that you won’t have the necessary experience or confidence to drive the largest of vans. This will likely result in the need for a number of trips, back and forth, in order to get everything from your old home to your new one. Hiring a man and van removal service will mean access to the biggest of removal vans, with the intention of getting as much as possible into the van, which will hopefully result in fewer trips between houses.

Protection

When hiring a van yourself, you may not know the best way to load the van and strapping everything down. This could result in your possessions sliding around in the back of the van during transit, and possibly ending up damaged. Professionals are more experienced and knowledgeable when it comes to loading the van, and making sure everything is secure, before setting off and ensuring that your possessions reach your new address in the best possible condition.

How Cloth Diapers Helped Me Plus Win $50 Gift Certificate

Win $50 Gift Certificate

When my son was born, I tried diapers of every type. That was a nightmare. He was allergic to every diaper available to me. I finally realized I was going to have to use cloth diapers on him and after that, life went according to plan. Before that though, I had a lot of diaper rashes to deal with. For all you who can relate to diaper rashes being a problem, I’m going to share a diaper rash tip that I was given, that worked better than any diaper rash ointment I tried. Ivory Dish Detergent. Say what? That’s right, in a matter of days it cleared up his rash and it was the last diaper rash he had. I don’t know how but the Ivory Dish Detergent acted as a witch hazel when I added a few drops to his bath water. I started using Ivory Soap on him as well and I think that helped keep his skin allergies under control.

Win $50 Gift Certificate

Cloth diapers were a challenge for me. I was a first time mom, young, and didn’t know how to begin to get started or what I’d need. I’ve never been one to let a challenge stop me though so I headed to Sears to buy diapers, liners, diaper pail, and diaper pins, oh my. I actually didn’t realize I’d need liners until I arrived at the store. Sears had everything I needed at the time but I didn’t have all of the options for cloth diapers that we have today. Using cloth diapers on my grandchildren is a lot more fun, I can tell you that. I had some white {boring} diapers and they were thin and I was constantly washing them. Now a days, there are cloth diapers of every style and as absorbent as disposable diapers. Cloth diapering has taken on a whole new meaning to me now that I have the choice to use them. I love that I’m not adding to our already full landfills to help make my grand kids future better for them as well as better for the environment.

I’d love to hear your thoughts on using cloth diapers or a tip that worked when your child had a diaper rash. Please leave a comment and add your name to my giveaway widget for a chance to win a $50 GC. You must live in the US to enter.
