It is not difficult to look your best after 50. Reaching this age is not to say you have passed your best. Style and beauty can be achieved at any age over 50, by men as well as women. It is possible for anyone to look good, with the right clothing, good skin care and the right beauty products.

~ Fashion After 50

Dress well and be stylish, but do remember that most designer ranges are intended to be worn by very thin, very young models. If a new style suits you, then buy it, and enjoy wearing it. Never be tempted to buy something just because it's the latest fashion.

when you are over 50 you should take advantage of being able to look more glamorous. High quality jewelry, and classic accessories, that do not look right on young people, will add real glamour and style to your appearance.

~ Hair Care and Skin Care After 50

Care should be taken when deciding to use hair color, or choosing a new shade of makeup. These should match and compliment your natural coloring, and not look too obvious.

Try to choose skincare and hair care products made from pure natural ingredients. Chemicals and oil based ingredients used in many cosmetics are dangerous to the skin. Natural massage oils, and pure carrier oils, can feed and nourish the skin when used for moisturizing, as well as for the benefits of massage.

~ Stay Well and Feel Fine After 50

Trying to look twenty years younger is not a good idea. Facelifts, tucks and implants are not the best way to look good. Using much more makeup and extra beauty products is not the real answer.

Looking your best means taking care of your body, having an active lifestyle and a good diet. It is not necessary to join a gym, or to go on a strict slimming diet, all that is required to look good is to feel good.

The secret of staying in good health, and having a lot of energy, is to eat sensibly. This means keeping to a well balanced nutritious diet, and eating for all day energy.

Have a regular workout, or daily exercise routine, to tone the body and strengthen muscles. Exercising also burns off extra calories and releases endorphins, natural hormones that make you feel good, so a daily walk, cycle, swim or run will ensure good looks, and good feelings too.

When you are toned and feeling healthy, looking your best is not so difficult. A healthier diet and lifestyle will benefit the quality of your hair and skin too.

The best way look good after 50 is to enjoy life. Learn to relax, think positively. Quality of life is not about looking young, but knowing you are looking good will give you extra confidence, and will help you to make the most of what life has to offer, for many years to come.
