Mature skincare tips on how to get rid of dry skin. I share my anti aging tips for repairing my dry skin including my skincare routine, face cream, skincare products, …
today we're going to talk about mature
skincare over 50 and how to get rid of
dry skin hi I'm Schellea and welcome to
Fabulous 50's today I'm going to talk
about how to get rid of dry skin and if
you're a woman over 50 it's more than
likely that you've had some kind of dry
skin issue because what happens when we
go through menopause is our skin becomes
drier it can become itchy and irritated
and there's a couple of reasons for that
but one of them that we would all have
in common is that our estrogen levels
decrease and unfortunately one of
estrogens big jobs is to stimulate our
collagen and our oils within our body
and as our estrogen decreases as we go
through menopause all of that decreases
as well so we have to put things into
our body and onto our skin to help with
the process because the slowdown of
estrogen reduces our body's ability to
retain our moisture so if you're in your
menopausal years and you've got dry skin
I'm gonna give you some tips that I use
they work and it really helps making
everything smooth and soft again the
first part of this video I'm going to
share with you things that I put inside
my body that moisturize from the inside
and then I'm going to share with you
products that I put on my face and my
body that actually work I've always
struggled with dry skin because
naturally I'm red hair with freckles so
that kind of coloring and skin type is
prone to being very dry and I think now
that I know what to do even though I am
going through menopause my skin is
better now than it was when I was
not as supple but it's not dry like it
always was and that goes for my hair as
well so here's the thing as we get older
our skin gets older and that's a natural
process but this is really important if
you consume a diet low in fat you can
expect your skin and your body to age
more rapidly and this happened to me
when I was doing a low-fat No
fat diet back in the 90s when it was
the thing to cut out all fat so I did
but what happened was my skin got really
dry my hair got dry it was the time when
I was having children and my hair
started to thin and I noticed a lot of
my friends who are doing the same thing
you know we're exercising and we were
reducing our calorie intake but we cut
out all fats and that affects our face
so much that's the first sign that
someone's not having enough oil inside
their body as you can see dry wrinkly
face and when I started learning about
good fats and good oils I was able to
turn that around very quickly and I've
been doing that ever since
and I think a lot of ladies who are
having very dry skin and a big problem
with it during menopause will be able to
sort it out if you start introducing
oils into your diet and I'm going to
share with you the things that I do and
then the next phase of this is some
skincare that really really works so
we've got to get the right kinds of oils
and they're called essential fatty acids
and the reason they're called essential
is it because our bodies can't make them
and we need to get them through food a
really good source is coconut oil extra
virgin coconut oil is great and olive
oil is amazing as well and the Greeks
who consume a lot of olive oil because
that's their culture and they know they
know the benefits of having olive oil
but it has been said that the only
reason Greek people eat food is to
combine it with their olive oil so they
can get enough oil into their bodies so
this is really great and another thing I
learned about when I did a controlled
fast was to use Udos oil which is the
perfect combination of Omega 3 6 & 9 so
this is quite expensive but it makes
such a difference if you start consuming
this twice a day you will notice a
difference in the moisture content in
your skin very very quickly but you can
use the oils that you have and olive oil
for example
when you buy this it's got to be
first cold-pressed
that's the best one to get in a dark
bottle not in a light bottle because the
light can get into it and oxidize it so
just make sure you get good quality oils
and get them into your body another way
that you can get oils and fats into your
body is with seeds and nuts so good
quality seeds and nuts and lots of
avocados and oily fish things like that
are going to moisturize your body from
the inside so when you're addressing
your dry skin with just skin care alone
you're already 3/4 of the way there and
this is so true when you start doing
this and then stop because you might
need to go traveling or something like
that you'll notice the difference within
the first couple of days so believe me
this absolutely works
the estrogen has decreased in our body
so it's all we have to do is start
replenishing our body with the things
that aren't there anymore also drink
lots of water because water will keep us
hydrated and everything helps so good
fats good oils lots of water get started
that's your first step the second phase
we go into is good quality skin care and
I'm going to share with you some things
that just completely stopped my dry skin
I was using all kinds of cleansers but
I've never used an oil cleanser because
I thought that would just not remove all
my makeup and when I did my skincare
video with will Finnell he's a skincare
expert and he said to me when you are
particularly at our age group over 50
women should be using an oil cleanser
because it's less drying and less
irritating it still gets all the makeup
off but if you want to reduce the drying
you start with the cleanser and I've got
to say it made a big difference so when
I was using a non oil cleanser I clean
my face and it was squeaky clean it felt
good but like one minute later my skin
was dry so
I used the one that he recommended by a
Drogo cleansing oil it is so beautiful
and so luxurious and I love it so you
could give this a try the other one that
I use when I'm traveling it's called
simple hydrating cleansing oil it's like
$8 and it works beautifully the next
thing I do after cleansing morning and
night is use a hyaluronic acid and the
reason hyaluronic acid is so amazing for
women over 50 is that it's a moisture
binding ingredient so when you put it on
your face it's pulling the moisture and
keeping your skin really plump I use the
neon multi molecular hyaluronic complex
this is beautiful and I use it morning
and night and you can tell the
difference straightaway when you put it
on so if you've got dry skin try a
hyaluronic acid and I try to find
hyaluronic acid in all of my products
when I first started researching
hyaluronic acid I went on to Amazon and
I ended up buying the Joyal it's royal
with a J the their hyaluronic acid and I
bought that and I bought some for my
friends as well and we all tried it and
all of us thought that it made a big
difference and we reordered it then I
started doing a little bit more research
and this one came up as well so the one
on board on Amazon is only $17.99 it's
inexpensive and it's a perfect place to
start and also the ordinary has a great
hyaluronic acid and that also is a
perfect place to start if you fall in
love with using hyaluronic acid maybe
give this one a try those same
girlfriends we all buy this now so you
have lots of options and you put it on
straight after cleansing another
ingredient that will Finnell told me
about i'll leave his video up here it's
a super helpful video to explain the
ingredients of skincare and how it
affects women over 50 but he said one of
the great ingredients that we can use at
our age is squaline so I found the
ordinary sells this product but it's yet
the ordinary squaline this is a really
great ingredient so you can if you've
got really super dry skin and
particularly for mature skin all you do
its add a little bit of the oil a couple
of drops and you can add this into your
moisturizers it's just a beautiful oil
and it's inexpensive because it's from
the ordinary and when you're feeling
particularly dry add a couple of drops
of squaline to you can pat it under
your eyes or you can add it to your
moisturizer and you can rub it anywhere
you like it's great and it really helps
when you're super super dry after I use
my hyaluronic acid is a Charlotte
Tilbury magic cream so this cream also
is full of hyaluronic acid and different
ingredients to make your dry skin feel
beautiful this one is amazing I got the
sample size so if you can get a sample
and ask for one to try I think they send
this out for free because I got mine for
free when I ordered something else and I
loved the consistency so much because
it's rich and hydrating but it doesn't
leave a film and when this ran out I was
really upset I had to go and buy the big
tub the best thing I love about this one
is you can use it as a moisturizer but
it's not so rich that when you put your
foundation on the top everything runs
it's so beautiful
this is very similar to the Lumiere and
the La Mer cream is so luxurious and so
beautiful I've had a sample size the
same size as this of the La Mer and
it's you don't want it to run out
because it's so beautiful but it's super
expensive and probably hard to justify
the price but this I think does the same
thing it feels as luxurious and it's got
the same kind of consistency another
great one for dry skin is the appearance
medical barrier
room this is another product that I've
found that I would always keep buying
because I use this at night over the top
of my resume and if I'm feeling really
dry or my skin's really itchy I can use
this and it kind of calms everything
down but this is one of those ones that
is really very moisturizing
and then we get to our body and dry skin
in our body looks flaky and if you want
to wear bare skin you need to maintain
that so the oils will help and the foods
that you eat will help keep your skin in
better condition but the best thing that
I've found to help with my dry skin on
my body is to dry brush it and I've been
doing this for many years and what it
does is it takes off all the dead skin
cells and it stimulates all of your skin
brings the blood to your skin and it
helps with lymphatic drainage so you buy
a brush like this there's a couple of
brushes on the market that have got like
a handle that slips into the top don't
buy those because the handle always
falls off and it's so annoying but you
need a long handle so you can reach your
back and what you do with a dry brush is
you start at your feet and move upwards
always going towards the heart
so you brush up and when you get to your
arms you just brush like this and you're
stimulating and regenerating the skin
cells and getting rid of all of that
dead skin on top and you do your whole
I don't do this area because I think
it's too sensitive I'll do my shoulders
and then finish there and then I'll
exfoliate this area these bristles are
firms so you can feel it when you're
doing it but after you've done it for a
few times it's it's not an issue so you
do body brushing then have a shower and
if you've got dry skin this is really
important to don't make your showers
very hot if you can handle a lukewarm
shower that's the perfect thing the
other thing about brushing
is that you buy a brush once and you
wash it once a week and you don't have
to spend money on exfoliators for your
body so it's money-saving and it's all
natural and it does an amazing job when
you get out of the shower moisturize
moisturize moisturize and moisturizer
for the body I just use a natural
moisturizer this is a pure Fiji it's
natural but this is super hydrating and
I add the squalane
to this as well so it just gives me that
extra boost of moisture if you want a dy
I recipe for a really great moisturizing
treatment that you can make yourself
this is a glycerin recipe that I have
and I spray it on to my body just like
that and it's so moisturizing and it's
so cheap to make so you add glycerin and
water and rosewater and I have a video
I'll leave a link up here with the
recipe for this this is great it doesn't
cost hardly anything to make and when
you're feeling really dry particularly
in winter just keep spraying yourself
and and it gives a nice glow as well so
I think in our age you know for mature
women skincare is kind of important
there's so many things we have to deal
with now that we're getting older
because everything's changing all the
rules have changed now that we're older
but if we know why things are changing
and what we can do to make it better our
life is just a little bit more simple I
really hope this can help you get rid of
your dry skin please give a thumbs up if
this video was useful to you and share
it with your girlfriends thank you so
much for watching and have a beautiful
