There is a lot of summer beauty advice out there right now. But, much of it is aimed at teens and young adults. While some of the advice, like wearing sunscreen and natural skin care, is good no matter what age you are, it’s not all the same. As we age, our bodies change and our needs are different. I received product for this post. This post contains affiliate links, and I will receive compensation if you make a purchase after clicking on my links.

When it comes to skin care, you are never too young to pay attention to your skin. I wish that I knew in high school what I know now about taking care of myself. Now that I’m 50, here are a few things that I wish that I had started at a much younger age.
Hair Care Tips
I’ve highlighted my hair for years to disguise the gray. Highlighting or dying your hair can dry it out. It’s important to return moisture to your hair using a restorative shampoo with natural oils and plant extracts like Philip B. Russian Amber Imperial Shampoo with Amber oil and pure plant extracts of nettle, chamomile, burdock, rosemary, sage and grape seed. It’s also color protective to help your highlight last as long as possible. Find it on Amazon.
Minimize Hair Damage
As we age, our hair becomes more brittle due to hormone changes. While restoring moisture can help a lot, it’s important to try to minimize breakage. The Scunci Multi-Colored Mixed Elastics will keep your hair back from your face without breaking the strands like other hair elastics. The Conair Root Booster Paddle Brush will gently lift your hair from the roots and help detangle snarls. Find it on Amazon.
Dipping your finger into your foundation or cover up to apply it can transfer bacteria from your skin back to the bottle. The MakeupDrop (on Amazon here) applies makeup smoothly and is anti-microbial so it does not harbor bacteria or promote mold growth. This can help keep breakouts to a minimum. If your skin looks dull and lacks the healthy glow you had when you were younger, try the DDF Skincare Brightening Cleanser (on Amazon) with AHAs to minimize the appearance of fine lines.
As I reevaluate my beauty routine, I’m looking for more products with natural ingredients. MALIN+GOETZ Eucalyptus deodorant is both alcohol and aluminum free. It’s formulated with antiseptic eucalyptus extract and citronellyl to help keep odor at bay. The unique combination of ingredients leaves no residue or stains so you feel (and your clothes look) fresh all day. Find it on Amazon.
When you’re choosing your beauty and skin care products, take a look at what they offer and be sure that they’re supporting maturing hair and skin. It’s never too early or too late to make healthy changes and follow helpful summer beauty advice. I hope these beauty tips for summer days have inspired you.
