Over 50 Beauty Finds & Winter Wardrobe I’m Reaching for Now

Over 50 Beauty Finds & Winter Wardrobe I’m Reaching for Now shares grooming essentials, self-care goodies, and stuff I’m wearing or would like to wear. If you’re a bit past middle age like moi, then you know mature skin has special needs in winter. I’m all for babying it, healing it, and keeping it healthily hydrated for reasons beyond vanity. And since I work from home, bring on the comfy cozy layering pieces.

Over 50 Skin Care & Beauty Essentials

I have been pampering my skin for more than ten years now–at 40-something, I began noticing changes in the mirror and became more mindful about a routine.

What I happily discovered was the habit of caring for my skin became self-care and even a sacred self-kindness ritual. Here are the exact things (above) I’m reaching for these days.

New to Me Exfoliation Tool

A somewhat strange beauty discovery I found and will perhaps use forever now for serious exfoliation? If you use a retinol product or exfoliate regularly, this tool is extra peachy since it also removes fuzzy wuzzies!

When I was diagnosed with BRCA2 genetic mutation in 2013, I began reading labels to understand ingredients I was massaging into my skin on my anti-cancer journey.

Winter Skin Care Products for Daytime

I keep a tube of Aveda Botanical Kinetics Radiant Skin Refiner in the shower and use an itty bitty amount to exfoliate.

Winter Moisturizing

According to The American Academy of Dermatology, to lock in the most moisture, the best time to apply a hydrating cream or balm is immediately after cleansing.

Nightime Skin Care

SkinCeuticals Retinol 1.0 is what I have used for years, and it is powerfully effective in terms of the many benefits. My skin’s tone becomes more even, the texture is smoother, and lines are diminished…just like it was formulated to do. This is the fastest, non-laser, non-visit to a med spa, fantastic fix for my my sun-damaged summer skin to uncover a fresher look.

Winter is ideal to use retinol for me since I’m not getting all that summer sun. The tricky thing about introducing such a powerful product is easing into it slowly so my skin can tolerate it. If I overdo it, my skin lets me know to be more gentle (temporary irritation, redness, and dryness result). You also must be careful with sun exposure…for very good reason! The fresh skin this product uncovers (as the old sloughs off) is more yummy, tender and baby-like!

The price is totally worth it, and this tube lasts forever.

Moisture for the Body

AVEDA Stress-Fix is a spa-like creme with algae, shea butter, sunflower oil, and a natural yet complex fragrance which calms. I keep it in my nightstand drawer to massage into hands and feet before bed.

Concealer Friends

Here’s a relatively new to me concealer that is a dream for dark undereye circles, rosacea, and blemishes I live with. It is like a crayon, and I love how it is just the right size for easy application.

I’m also partial to this velvety smooth mineral based concealer which glides on for beautiful powdery soft coverage.

      Hope you like them – these are the things I order again and again, and sometimes I think the key to something working is simply USING it or anything with discipline. So if a moisturizer has a fragrance that smells like love to me, I’m going to reach for it over and over and therefore USE it, ya know? But if I’m wishy washy about a scent or formulation, I will likely neglect a skin care routine and my skin. 🙂
