  1. New Filler Treatment for Younger Looking Hands

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Ageing hands is often a topic  that is highlighted by Fab after Fifty readers  – and the beauty/aesthetic treatment options available. I was recently invited to a press evening by Cosmesurge in Harley Street to discuss the latest ‘tweakments’.  The cosmetic industry recognises that we would rather ‘tweak’ our appearance rather than do anything drastic! One of the points stressed was that we should take as much care with our daily skincare routine over our necks and hands as we do our faces – just use the same products. One of the new treatments demonstrated at the event was an option to rejuvenate hands. I have seen other treatments previously which plump up the overall skin, but this one...
  2. Review of Nivea Q10 Power 60+ skincare range for 60plus skin

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon The needs of our skin change as we age. Each decade brings different skincare  issues. The new Nivea Q10 Power 60+ range has been formulated to address the specific needs of our skin once we’re in our 60s. At this stage common issues tend to be lack of elasticity ( caused by collage loss), drier skin, age spots, sagging and wrinkles. Goodness – sounds dreadful when you see it listed like that but it doesn’t have to look that dramatic – changes are gradual!!   I have tried 3 products on the Q10 Power range, the Anti-Wrinkle Day Cream (£10.99), the Night Cream (£10.99)  and the Multi-action Pampering Oil (£19.99) All three products contain Q10 which is identical to the Q10 found naturally in our own skin...
  3. What does 50 look like?

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon There has been some discussion on this topic over on the Fab after Fifty Facebook page. It started when I posted a quote ‘ The difference between being invisible over 50 and Fabulous over 50 is mindset’. Very simple, and I had not foreseen anything controversial in the statement. What did cause the controversy however, was the image I had posted. I had selected an image of a vibrant woman running on a beach. The first comment on this post was somebody criticising the image – saying...
  4. Redundancy over 50: Things to do BEFORE you send out your CV

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon I meet many individuals who, as soon as they are made redundant, rush to put together a CV and send to as many potential employers as possible. There are so many things you need to do BEFORE you do this. First of all there are some practical considerations. As an employee, you may well have taken advantage of an employee benefits package which has included life insurance and health cover (amongst other benefits). How long (if at all) will these benefits continue once you have left employment? Which do you wish to continue to fund privately – is it possible to arrange cover with the same providers to ensure continuity?  These are issues that need to be addressed before leaving. Before rushing into looking...
  5. Inspire Your Weight Loss Journey This Week – Quotes to keep you on track

    Comment
        Coming up with great resolutions for a new decade can be tough. When it comes to coming up with better habits for your life, weight loss is often up there as a number one priority after Christmas.    Most of us indulge maybe a little too much over the festive season, and getting back to a healthy weight and lifestyle is key for a happy and healthy life. While most of us will head straight for the vegetables and shake that weight drinks, some of us can find it a little more difficult to motivate ourselves and get started.    If towards the middle of January you are still struggling to inspire yourself to eat healthily,...

  7. A Simple Plan to Regain Financial Fitness over 50

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon Most of us are not financially fit. We are not completely aware of how our money is being spent. We have too much debt and spend money on the wrong things. While it can be challenging to turn things around, it’s well within your reach. There is no single, correct path to financial prosperity. Different solutions work for different people. While there are multiple paths, there are some steps that are critical, regardless of the specific path followed:   Know where your money is being spent. Many people only have a vague idea about how much money they make and where it goes. The first step to financial fitness is know exactly how much you’re taking home and where it’s being spent.   The Finance module...
  8. The 7 Most Important Things for Achieving Goals and Resolutions

    Comment
    Article by Ceri Wheeldon It’s the time of year when we set our New Year’s resolutions – but how often do we achieve those goals that we set for ourselves? Goals have the power to shape your future. But most people don’t have a good understanding of how to achieve goals. Consequently, most never even set goals. Understanding what it takes to achieve a goal will greatly enhance your odds of success. Consider these ideas: A proper goal. Most people don’t have goals to begin with. Those that do have goals often have goals that are ineffective. You can’t achieve a goal without having a goal. Avoid setting goals that don’t excite you. What’s the point? It’s easier to achieve a goal that you find motivating. A clear conclusion. How will you...
