Aging creeps up on us all and brings with it a whole host of issues you’ve probably never had to worry about before. Just because it comes for us all, doesn’t mean you can’t keep it at bay for a bit longer. You’ve got a problem? We have the solution!
Hair with No Flair
Is your hair looking dull and lifeless? All sorts of things can cause this, from stress to certain medications, but when menopause hits, permanent hair thinning can really become an issue!
What you can do: Don’t just assume it’s aging. Hair thinning can actually be a symptom of a more serious issue such as thyroid disease or anemia, so go and see a doctor first. Once all other causes are ruled out, try a specially formulated product such as Regaine which can help to regrow hair.
In Need of Some Breast Support
We all reach a point where everything starts going south. What was once in the chest area, now sits somewhere around your waist with no recollection of how that happened!
What you can do: If you’re lucky enough not to have reached this stage yet, fight gravity and get working on those chest muscles! The more you have, the longer they’ll stay perky. Did you know, not wearing a bra is also good for you because it forces your chest to hold your breasts up and naturally starts to build muscle memory? If, like the many, you’ve already surpassed this stage, there has never been a better time to invest in some well-fitting bras. Make sure you’re properly fitted and tighten those straps to hoist them up!
Serious Case of the Wrinkles
Unfortunately, this is one of the most obvious signs of aging. Whether its crows’ feet from a life of laughter or wrinkles around the lips from years of sipping cocktails through a straw, there’s no hiding it, your face will give the game away.
What you can do: Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate! Take a look at our recommended picks and find the best hyaluronic acid serum for your skin. It’s the magical ingredient that holds water and the key to bright, plump, younger looking skin.
Falling Apart Feet
Those years of torturing your feet in sky high heels and ill-fitting shoes are bound to take their toll eventually. It will come back to bite you in the form of cracked heels and sore feet – karma really is a bitch.
What you can do: Give your feet a break! Make foot care a part of your daily routine by moisturizing and putting on a pair of cozy socks before bed. Also, invest in your footwear. You don’t have to give up fashion for comfort, choose to purchase from places like Cole Haan and you really can have both!
Brows? What Brows?
Like your hair, as you get older your eyebrows start to thin and hairs become sparser. This isn’t helped by years of plucking (not always well), leaving gaps that just won’t grow back.
What you can do: Unfortunately, there’s nothing you can do to actually grow them back, but with brows in the spotlight you’ll be glad to know there are options. Firstly, you can try filling them in with makeup. Either draw them back with an eyebrow pencil, or use an eyebrow brush and eyebrow gel, such as one from the Anastasia Beverly Hills collection, to feather them back in. If the maintenance sounds too much, you can also consider a process called microblading, a semi-permanent tattoo that, according to reviews, really isn’t as painful as it sounds!
