Over 50 Daily Gentle Rhythms: Skincare

*We need to tweak our hearing of the word ‘aging.’ Our emotional response to it is often similar to hearing ‘decaying.’ Yet think about it. From the moment we are born, time is passing and skin is aging. Infants are aging. Adolescents are aging. Aging isn’t something sorrowful which begins after age 25–it’s a neutral and natural occurrence from day one.

AVEDA’s Botanical Kinetics Line

For years, I used only baby wipes to remove my makeup and cleanse my skin. Then I found a wonderful cleanser for sensitive skin which was discontinued. I only wish I had discovered THIS gentle and subtle fragranced cleanser years ago because it is a KEEPER and a joy.

I cannot live without this next tube of skin polishing magic. Kept in the shower, I use just a little of this to exfoliate dry and dead skin on face and body in the shower every single day. A little goes a long way so the tube lasts a lonnnnnng time.

AVEDA Botanical Kinetics Intense Hydrating Creme

After so many years of living with oily skin prone to breakouts, I couldn’t imagine a day when I would be reaching for products formulated for dry or very dry skin. But here I am! It’s not possible to say enough lovely things about this creme which I cannot live without after trying countless others!

What does it do?

Moisturizes dry to very dry skin, instantly replenishes skin’s moisture reserve, retains moisture all day, helps skin absorb moisture (thanks to salicornia herbacea), seals in hydration with cupucu butter, and leaves skin feeling supple.

Shower as Spa Retreat

I discovered Tocca’s Cleopatra body wash years ago when I first visited the Elysian Spa in Chicago. It was not only in the luxurious showers but also used as hand soap at every sink. Steal that genius move for yourself! The grapefruit and cucumber combination is completely irresistible, and who knew handwashing could feel this luxurious?

Post-shower Calming Oil for Body

Admittedly, I was a little slow to jump on the composition oil bandwagon. After all, why would I add another moisturizing product? Turns out the answer for me could only come from trying it. If I’m in a hurry, there isn’t time to massage it in after a shower, but when I have an extra 30 seconds? What a blessing to luxuriate in the aroma of this oil and gently pamper my one and only skin.

Luscious Shampoo & Conditioner

AVEDA’s Cherry Almond Line

If you have used AVEDA since the ’80s like me, then you may remember the yumminess of their cherry almond line which was just recently brought back after years of absence! The challenging thing about choosing an AVEDA shampoo is that they ALL smell incredible, but they are formulated for different hair types. So even though I’m gaga for the fragrance of their Shampure line, I now need more hydration than it offers. What a coup when the right shampoo for your hair comes with a scent this cherrylicious.

Over 50 hair and chemically processed hair is often in need of extra TLC, and this is a leave-in treatment I use for dry ends prone to split. Organic bergamot, mandarin, ylang ylang and more plant essences impart their pure loveliness.

    What an appropriate quote for today. I had to calm myself in grocery store yesterday because all the aisles are rearranged, but mostly because some products which were on my list and I have bought for years are now Gone. The store eliminates items which are , who knows, Perhaps not good sellers for all the new products.
    So, I have to go to several different stores in a month to get my favorites.
    This is worse than road rage for me.

      YES! I too have to now go to 3 different stores to buy what I used to buy at one. There’s a certain bread I need, and the last time I shopped for it, I think I put 50 miles on my car! I guess it’s time to cross over and try online grocery shopping? The rearranging is all about keeping us in the store longer so we buy things we didn’t intend to buy. The bread aisle is so hidden in the grocery store closest to our house and keeps moving around the store that we almost need a private Facebook group with maps and updates. Mercy! 🙂

    SO TRUE THERE ARE SOMETHINGS MONEY CAN NOT BUY, AND MONEY CAN NOT BUY OUR SOULS THAT BELONG TO JESUS CHRIST. OUR SOULS ARE PRICE LESS AND SHOULD NOT BE MISUSED BY ANYONE. THE ONLY REASON THAT OUR SOULS ARE PRICE LESS, HIS BECAUSE HE THE SON OF YAHVEH AND MAN, HAS DIED AND RISEN FOR OUR SOULS. DO NOT STAY DEPRESSED FOR HE SHALL SOON RETURN, AS BIBLE PROPHECY KEEPS COMING TO PASS.
