With so much emphasis on youth when it comes to looking beautiful, many women are left wondering if it’s still possible to look sexy when you’re over 50.
And while it might feel like a young person’s game, the truth is, it’s possible to look and feel sexy at any age, and now more than ever women are proving that wisdom and sophistication are just as powerful when it comes to feeling confident and gorgeous.
If you need proof, just look at some of the most powerful women in Hollywood as evidence – actresses like Meryl Streep, Michelle Pfeiffer, Jane Seymour, Goldie Hawn and Angela Bassett are just a few examples of sexy older women who are regularly named among the most beautiful in the world.
Looking and feeling your best
There’s an old adage that says when you feel good, you look good too – and that’s just as true at age 50 as it is at age 25. Today women are living fuller and more interesting lives than ever before; rather than being considered old, women in their 50s and 60s are in their prime – for many it’s a time when careers have matured, children are grown up and you’re in a place of more financial freedom than ever before.
There’s plenty to be confident about, and by recognising the things that make you special and celebrating your achievements it won’t be long before you start feeling good about yourself.
Making simple changes can also go a long way to helping you feel your best as well – treating yourself to a new haircut, a nice pair of shoes, or a few new items for your makeup bag could be just what you need to freshen up your look and love what you see in the mirror.
Take some time to focus on yourself. Reach for those clothes that are gathering dust at the back of the wardrobe, accentuate your eyes with a complimentary eye shadow and draw attention to your smile with some lipstick. And most importantly, always remember that looking and feeling sexy should always be on your own terms.
Beauty secrets at any age
Laser treatments, expensive night creams and Botox injections are just a few of the high-tech beauty secrets that promise to hold the key to youth and beauty, but in reality looking great is a lot simpler – and more affordable – than all of that.
If you want to look and feel sexy start with your skin. Beautiful skin makes a big difference and isn’t as difficult to maintain as you think. To keep your skin looking its best drink lots of water, get enough sleep and stay out of the sun. These three simple tricks can make a big difference in just a short time.
Make healthy eating and exercise a part of your routine as well – even walking for an hour a few times a week will help increase your energy levels, shift any extra pounds you might be carrying and help improve your mood. When you feel good on the inside you look good on the outside, so don’t trick yourself into believing that you need to go under the knife to look your best. Being sexy is as simple as taking care of yourself and focusing on your best features and attributes.
