skin care for woman over 50

I Am Woman

The lyrics from Helen Reddy's empowering hit from the seventies embodies the woman over fifty for me. Words, like 'strong', 'wise', 'invincible', 'determined', 'in numbers too big to ignore', 'I can do anything', 'I am woman', these are the words that best describe these amazing women.
 
Most women over fifty feel liberated. They have learned not to sweat the little things, and quite frankly have learned that most everything is a little thing.  The woman over fifty makes her relationship with herself no. 1.  She embraces who she is and nobody is going to fault her for it. She can be a redhead one week, a blonde the next. And most say 'no" to plastic surgery. I read somewhere that more women in their forties get plastic surgery than in their fifties. I think it's because once you hit fifty,You say, "I am who I am."
This orchard, full of flowering trees displaying their fresh spring growth and blossoms,
reminds me of the beauty of women over fifty
 
I often refer to this time in a woman's life as their second spring....a time when a woman and nature are seen as a reflection of each other. A renewal of the person emerging from a life of restraints to a life filled with true self expression. A very beautiful time.
 
At a recent event for a group known as the Fabulous 50, one woman told the group she thinks of her hot flashes as nothing other than power surges!  It's all about attitude.
 
That attitude crosses over to your skin. We all know our skin reflects your health and experiences. Depression and stress creates tension in your skin causing lines and blotchiness.
 
Beyond that, the build-up of toxins in our system adds to the aging process.  Our largest elimination organ, the skin is often overloaded and unable to eliminate harmful toxins from environmental pollution and preservatives found in processed foods.  There are ways to combat this build-up and help eliminate harmful toxins. Consuming ingredients, in their natural form,  like ginger, peppermint, licorice, and dandelion support healthy liver function and aids in the detoxification process, lessening the burden placed on the skin. If you need a little boost, we offer Detoxifying Skin Wraps with rejuvenating sea algae in the clinic.
 
There is no question that 50 is the new 40. This is due in part to the advancement in skin care over the years. I have dedicated my practice to developing products that support healthy skin through natural skin care products and empowering women to see their true beauty.
 
At Bellezza we offer Limoncello di Bellezza. This antioxidant treatment calms and rejuvenates the skin and works to help eliminate toxins while minimizing dark circles (which steal years from your looks), and brightens the skin (adding years to your looks). A specialized version of the Limoncello applied to the face and throat provides immediate glow and relaxes tensed muscles.
 
But daily maintenance is the real key. Use Julianna's Cream Cleanser, Vital Serum, and  Face, Eye and Lip Cream at home every day. Using circular motion, stroke the face and throat to warm up the skin. Press firmly with your fingertips, working your way along the wrinkle lines, even pinching a few times will increase the blood flow and prime the skin to receive the nutrients from the ingredients to follow. 
 
Perhaps the number one concern of my over fifty clients is how to get rid of those age spots. Caused by the sun, liver spots, or freckles, these spots are visible as they inhabit the top layer of your skin and are the result of too much pigmentation, producing an undesirable discoloration. Dermabrasion in the clinic works beautifully to eliminate these spots. At home use products that contain DMAE , (Dimethyl-amino-ethanol), a powerful membrane stabilizing nutrient found in anchovies and sardines works wonders in reversing age spots on the skin. Yes, reverses! Spots that show up around menopause reflect a kidney imbalance and the quickest way to restore balance is with a diet.  - sesame seeds and black beans do wonders...
 
Other foods for healthy skin include, cherries, dates, walnuts. Limoncello and all citrus, is considered super food for healthy skin.
 
So for all my girlfriends fifty and over, I say embrace your beauty and your renewed self and enjoy this beautiful Spring day! This is your time.
 
Until next week,
 
Julianna
