  1. Skincare for Mature Skin

    Comment
    As our skin ages we need to take a look at our skincare routine. The skincare industry is developing new products constantly with ingredients that can address the visible signs of ageing including wrinkles, age spots and elasticity. In fact when asking the Fab after Fifty community on Facebook about their biggest skincare concern, surprisingly it wasn’t wrinkles that came out on top but lack of firmness and a sagging jawline!  There are things we can do to slow down the signs of ageing Habits that affect our skin Sometimes little things like changing daily habits can help. Some habits are obvious,  like touching your face a lot, sitting in the sun for hours and smoking are really going to work against your efforts to improve your skin.  You...
  2. Time Bomb Biggest and Best Anti-Ageing Collection

    Comment
    Time Bomb Biggest and Best Anti-Ageing Collection   As regular readers of Fab after Fifty know I am a huge fan of the Time Bomb skin and haircare range. I always like to let you know when it is available on special offer – and there is a fabulous deal on QVC on July 12th. This range has been a firm favourite with my reviewers . They are offering the following products at the special price of £62.88  (to buy the items separate would cost £206.50) so it is a substantial saving!   Time Bomb Supersize Hero Collection: Take Off Time Cleanse + Buff (200ml) RRP £25 This cleanser gently buffs away the dead skin cells every time to cleanse with its professional grade crystals. Complexion Cocktail With A...
  3. What are the benefits of a silk pillowcase?

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon   I was introduced to silk pillowcases nearly a decade ago, primarily for the benefits it brings to haircare, but it also offers significant benefits to mature skin. A traditional pillowcase can create ‘drag’- both for hair and skin. If you sleep on your side, as you move during the night, friction is created as your face moves across the pillowcase surface, created sleep creases and over time, wrinkles. With a silk pillowcase, the smooth texture helps the skin to glide over the surface and also retain moisture and helps to reduce puffiness. Less friction so less tangling and breakage As we get older, our hair tends to become drier and more brittle. Again , sleeping on a traditional cotton...
  4. Time Saving Beauty Tips for Busy Women over 50

    Comment
      Let’s face it: as much as we all want to walk out of the house in the morning looking like Jennifer Anniston, none of us really want to spend the time and expend the effort to get ready. Being a woman is hard work, and maintaining a healthy glow, a fresh face and shiny hair is difficult  ( and becomes increasingly so over 50!) and something that a lot of us simply don’t want to do. Today though we are going to have a look at all of the simple and lazy ways you can improve your beauty routine and look after yourself so that every time you step out of the door you feel fabulous! Use charcoal toothpaste If you want to get a healthier smile and don’t want...
  5. Review of Strivectin anti-wrinkle Wrinkle Recode Serum

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon This is described on the packaging as a line transforming melting serum. I am always on the lookout for serums that can really make a difference . Although no serum can eradicate lines in the same way as Botox, for many of us we would like to soften the lines rather than eliminate them completely. As they say, wrinkles show us where our smiles have been! Personally I’m happy with the smiles I have as result of smiling – it’s the lines on my forehead where my frown have been that I’m not quite so keen on! What can I say? The Strivectin Wrinkle Recode formula is fabulous. As soon as you apply it to the skin it just appears to melt...
  6. Overnight masks for the best beauty sleep

    Comment
      Want the Best Beauty Sleep? Buy Natural Jade Roller for Face and Use an Overnight Mask The Korean skincare invasion is the gift that keeps on giving. After sheet masks and their multiple steps skincare routine, they give us overnight or sleeping masks. Sleeping masks or sleeping packs are meant to be worn overnight and then washed off when we wake up. They may have richer texture than regular face creams, but not necessarily in terms of moisture or active ingredients. They’re meant to be used on top of your regular skin care products to lock-in moisture and help our skin absorb all those antioxidants and anti-aging ingredients. How do they differ from clay and sheet masks? A clay...

  8. Imedeen Prime Renewal review: Part 1

    Comment
    Review by Ceri Wheeldon We are so used to buying lotions and potions to fight the signs of ageing, but applying products to nourish the surface of the skin, whilst important,  can only do so much . We shouldn’t ignore nourishing our skin from the inside out, supporting the deeper building blocks of our skin. In an ideal world, our daily diet would deliver all the nutrients our skin needs to support, and delay the signs of ageing. Due to an underlying health condition, I tend to follow a fairly healthy anti-inflammatory diet ( I eat a lot of salmon) but I recognise that this is no longer sufficient to really target the deeper layers of my skin. This is why I am trying Imedeen Prime Renewal. Its Marine...
  9. Sensitive skin – natural ways to help.

    Comment
    By Gemma Hurditch for CNM (College of Naturopathic Medicine). Sensitive skin can come in a number of guises. Redness and irritation, hives or rashes, sensitivity to sun, or cold, or wind, skin itching and eruptions. Whatever the issue, there are a few key things to try which will support skin health and integrity. Ditch the products! Less is more when it comes to dealing with sensitive skin. Lots of otherwise wonderful ingredients such as fragrant essential oils, pore cleansing acids, and skin smoothing butters can all contribute to overload to sensitive skin. Keep skin care basic and once you have peeled back the number of products you use, introduce new products slowly and with caution. A good quality microfibre cloth and warm (never hot) water is...
  10. Natural ways to boost radiance for mature skin

    Comment
    By Gemma Hurditch for CNM (College of Naturopathic Medicine). Hydration inside and out is very important for our skin. Aim for 2 litres of water per day – try caffeine-free, skin-loving herbal teas such as nettle, rooibos and rosehips. Red clover tea is also lovely for mature skin, it contains phytoestrogens so can be supportive of those going through menopause and beyond. Red clover tea needs to be steeped in hot water for about 30 minutes to extract full flavour, so use a teapot with a tea cosy and 2 teaspoons of the herb per cup for best results. If unwanted facial hair is a concern, spearmint and green tea can be a useful addition for supporting hormone balance. Reduce alcohol intake, particularly if redness or rosacea is...
