5 Important Tips For Grandmothers Aging Gracefully

There is no way to get out of aging. We begin aging the instant we are born. All of our muscles, bones, skin cells and brain cells begin to age the very day we are born. When most women get into their 30’s and 40’s, is when they start thinking of ways to turn back the clock. Of course technically, there is no way of turning our aging clock back. Although how we wish we could…especially Grandmothers!

However, there are things us Grandmothers can do to help our bodies and minds age more gracefully. And along with this, we start to feel amazingly younger, stronger and yes; more beautiful! 🙂

Below Are 5 Helpful Tips For Grandmothers Aging Gracefully


* Exercise – I can’t think of anything that exercise isn’t good for. However for Grandmothers; it’s especially good for muscles, brain activity and arthritis.

* Stay Hydrated – Drinking at least 5 to 8 glasses of 8 ounces of water per day aids a plethora of organs in our bodies, along with hair, skin, bones and nails. It also helps to maintain healthy bladders and digestive tracts. This is especially true for the elderly. And this of course means Grandmothers.

* Diet And Supplements – It would be best to get all of our vitamins and minerals through our diets, however there are some people that just don’t like a particular food group. So then we chose supplements to get the nutrients we need. If you take medication, it is best to check with your doctor before starting any vitamin supplements. That way you are more inclined to not have any surprises. If you have any doubts, it’s always best to check with a doctor. As we age, our bodies need more nutrients and minerals.

* Mind Activity – There are so many things that Grandmothers can do to keep their mind active. Of course the best activity is spending time with the grandchildren. Playing various light sports with them and joining in on other activities is beneficial for both Grandma and Grandchild.

However there are other things a grandma can do to keep her mind sharp and active. Word Find, jigsaw puzzles and board games are just a few to list. Walking outdoors is also beneficial. To get the full benefit of walking, you need to pay attention to all the sights and smells that surround you while on your walk. This also helps clear the mind and thus, further sharpens it. And you know what they say, an active and healthy mind is a young mind.

* Healthy Skin Care – As we age, the skin gets very thin and is more inclined to dry out, especially if we don’t use a good moisturizer after bathing or showering. There is nothing worse than spending a long time in a bathtub and afterwards not following up with moisturizing. Of course it’s even worse in the winter time.

Taking a shower is best for an aging grandmother, and you can’t ever be too moisturized. It’s best to invest in some good body and face lotion. Gold Bond is excellent for this. Gentle cleansers is recommended for the elderly, and cleansing is so very important in order to have healthy skin. Also generous doses of vitamin E is ideal to help keep skin healthy.

Also remember elderly skin is more prone to problem skin such as eczema and rosacea. And that’s just mentioning two symptoms of problem skin. There are many more.

Spring and Summer Skin Care Tips and Suggestions

 

 

 

Skin care usually gets top priority throughout the winter months; as skin is always dry during the winter and it needs moisture. The best moisturizer for your skin in the winter time is white petroleum jelly. Also medicated lotion with aloe is good for dry skin.


For spring and summer months, and for most people; the skin gets oily and then tends to break out. I have noticed this with mine. My skin is basically oily to begin with, so the spring and summer months makes it worse.

For oily skin, you can benefit from cleansing and cream masks and scrubs that are meant to stay on the skin until it completely dries, then you rinse it off and follow up with a moisturizer and make up. If you have oily skin, then you will need an oil free moisturizer and also oil free makeup.

Scrubs that contain fruit acids (natural is best) is excellent for acne-prone skin. For example; strawberry and melon scrubs would be ideal if you suffer from oily or acne-prone skin. These scrubs are great for both spring and summer.

The best time to use a scrub is before going to bed. Exfoliating  scrubs washes away all make up and oily impurities. It's best to use scrubs no more than three times per week. If you use it daily, they tend to dry your skin and then causes it to be too harsh. You can find homemade masks and scrubs online by doing a simple Google search.

One lasts thing to remember about your skin in summer months is "sunscreen." Always apply it liberally on all exposed areas of the skin, and this of course includes your face. Also a tanning bed dries out your skin a lot more than you may think. So, it's your decision if you want tanned skin or patchy, dry, irritated, skin.

What Some People Are Saying About Tanning Beds:

Some people with severe eczema claims that the tanning bed did wonders for them.

Tips to Help Grandmothers Fight Age Spots and Experimenting With Principal Secret Skin Care

 

If you’re like me you may have thought age spots were from aging, but that’s not the case. From what I’ve researched, most age spots are from the sun. While the sun gives you Vitamin D and is needed for mental health, it can harm your skin in several ways. Too much sun can give you age spots or something worse, so it’s important to take care of your skin.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Reclaim – Principal Secret Skin Care Line

 

 

I’ve been using Reclaim for 3 months now and I have to say I love it. I was a little skeptical about using it, (just like all the rest of the skin care lines). I was watching the infomercial one afternoon and decided to go for it and I ordered it online. I thought to myself, I’ll use the Reclaim and if I don’t like it, I’ll use the Cindy Crawford skin care products. My Daughter-In-Law is using Cindy Crawford and she just loves it.

 

 

Here is what I’ve seen so far on my skin in using Reclaim for 3 months…

 

 

1. Better over-all skin complexion

 

2. Less red areas and more clarity

 

3. My skin is super soft

 

4. Less visibility of the fine lines around my eyes and mouth

 

5. More Smoothness to my skin – One product that I just love and leaves my face feeling the smoothest I’ve ever felt it ever is Age Breaker Wrinkle Retreat Refirming Mask. These are small capsules that you twist to open and squirt onto your hands, then apply it to the skin before moisturizing.

If you’re a grandmother and you’ve found you didn’t take care of your skin or maybe you’re a little younger and didn’t take care of it properly, you need to find a way to make it look and feel better.

 

 

Here are a few suggestions. The best way to prevent age spots is to protect your skin from the sun. The easiest way to do that is to stay inside as much as you can. If that’s not possible, you’ll want to wear clothing that covers your skin and a hat that covers your head. If that’s not possible, keep the time you spend in the sun down to a minimum and wear sun screen at all times.

 

 


If you’re already showing signs of age spots, there are several things you can do to make them lighter or you can get rid of them all together. One of the best ways is to use a cream specifically designed for age spots. These creams can be used as a daily moisturizer and they’ll renew your skin by lightening the dark aging spots. These creams contain Vitamin C and other ingredients that remove spots and help your skin to look healthy and feel great.

 

 

As a grandmother it’s important to have the best looking skin possible so you will always look your best. One way to do that is to use a skin bleaching process. This process will lighten your age spots, but you need to be careful because skin bleach contains Hydroquinone. The reason is because Hydroquinone is dangerous and may cause cancer. You need to read the ingredients and choose a product that doesn’t contain Hydroquinone. When you think of age spots you may only think of your face, but that’s not always the case.

 

 

You can have age spots on your hands as well. Your hands are exposed to the sun just like your face, so you need to be careful with them too. You may find hand creams are expensive, but they’re well worth it when they give you the results you’re looking for and your hands will look great. One of the best hand creams would be one that contains Shea Butter.

 

 

Just because you’re a grandmother doesn’t mean you can’t look your best at all times. When you use these tips to handle age spots you may have, you’ll look your best. These suggestions may help, but you should talk to your doctor or dermatologist before starting any treatment to make sure the plan you have will work for the condition you have whether it’s on your hands, arms, or face.

Beauty is an age old art, explored over the centuries in various manners to achieve perfection.

Here are a few tips that would help enhancing your beauty the natural way, with guaranteed positive feedback from your mom and grandmother!

 

 

 

Skincare – Use coconut oil to massage your body (preferable at night) to give it a shiny, soft contour. Enhance the massage with scented oils such as lavender or rosemary to add fragrance and extra softness

 

 

Scars – Use lemon peel to get rid of scars. Rub a lemon peel over the scar generously and repeat for a few days/weeks. You will be surprised at how fast the scar fades away

 

 

Blackheads – Add a bit of oatmeal and honey together and form a paste along with an egg white. Apply this on your blackheads by gently rubbing it over the affected skin and leave for 10-15 minutes. It will loosen your blackheads and make it easier to remove

 

 

Split Ends (Hair) – Beat an egg yolk and mix it with some honey and olive oil and massage on hair, wrap in a warm towel and leave for 30 minutes before rinsing

An alternative to shampoo – Use baking soda instead, it will absorb oil and loosen dry skin. It’s also a great remedy for dandruff

 

 

Softer Hands – Dip your hands in fresh milk for 5-10 minutes on a regular basis. Your hands will feel softer and will eventually lose all of the wrinkles and calluses from hard work

 

 

Eye Soother – Use a mix of cucumber and potato juice in chilled state. Dip it in cotton and place over your eyes and relax for 10-15 minutes. Wash off and apply some coconut or baby oil. It is a great eye soother as well as a stress reliever. Coconut oil also helps to get rid of dark circles over time

 

 

Lips – Lemon juice is a great remedy for dark lips. Use it on a regular basis and experience wonderful results

 

 

Try these home remedies yourself, improvise where needed and change where necessary to suit your skin tones/contour. You will be amazed at how effective some of these age old beauty secrets are. Talk to your mom, grandmother and relatives to learn more about the beauty regimes of their times, non-commercialized, health friendly methods that will make your beauty last longer and remain healthier the comfortable way. Opt for these natural therapies that have less side effects and assure longer lasting outcomes.

 

 

But most important of all, remember that beauty comes from within, so work on spiritual cleansing too. If you feel happy, content and maintain good health, your looks will definitely benefit. Inner cleansing is the best way to achieve glowing skin and a beautiful complexion. Practice good thoughts and become a glowing beauty yourself.
