A: Nail biting and picking can be symptomatic of anxiety, so pamper yourself with treatments that are both practical and de-stressing. Book yourself a quality manicure to clean up your nails and give them a pretty polish so that you’re less inclined to fidget with them. If you can’t make it to a salon, use your time alone to engage in nurturing DIY treatments at home, soaking your hands and feet before applying your favorite nail shades on your fingers and toes.
A: According to Elle, skipping meals can dry out the skin and accelerate signs of aging. Get your skin back on track by adding vitamin-rich, skin-healthy foods like avocados, sweet potatoes, oranges and peanuts. In the meantime, use a daily hydrating moisturizer that delivers anti-aging properties, like Philosophy Miracle Worker Miraculous Anti Aging Moisturizer or Radical Skincare Anti-Aging Restorative Moisture. For an extra moisture boost, apply a heavy-duty nighttime moisturizer that will restore skin while you sleep, such as NUXE Nuxuriance Anti-Aging Re-Densifying Night Cream - All Skin Types.
A: Wipe down your phone regularly with antibacterial wipes to keep germs and bacteria away from your skin. You can also try using a hands-free earpiece when you talk on your cell phone, to prevent the phone touching your skin. Finally, avoid touching your face, especially after talking on the phone or typing at the computer.
A: Although facial masks are optional during your 50s, beauty expert Julyne Derrick explains that using a mask every week or two can make your complexion feel heavenly by offering an extra dose of skin softening hydration and deep pore cleansing. Look for a facial mask that’s formulated for mature skin, such as Karuna Age-Defying Mask.
A: A dermatologist can remove unwanted spider and varicose veins, but the procedure can be painful and pricey. A quick, pain-free alternative is to cover them up with an affordable, over-the-counter cosmetic concealer like Dermablend Leg and Body Cover.
