What are some natural beauty tips for women over 50?

ANSWER

1. If you smoke, stop.

2. Just say no to sunbathing and tanning salons. Stay out of the sun between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. The sun's rays are the strongest then. If you must be outside, wear a protective hat, long-sleeved shirt, pants, and sunglasses. Freckles, age spots, and blotchy complexions are linked to sun exposure.

3. Wear sunscreen daily. Use products with at least 7% of zinc oxide and a SPF 30 or higher -- with both UVB and UVA protection every day.

5.Soothe dry skin. Use a humidifier. Also use moisturizing soaps and lotions.

6. Eat right and hydrate. Good nutrition helps the body repair skin. Drinking lots of water helps hydrate skin from the inside out.

7. Try anti-aging products. Over-the-counter creams and lotions can help enhance your natural beauty by rejuvenating your skin.
