OUR GIFT TO YOU A FEW TIPS FOR LOOKING GOOD AT CHRISTMAS

This is it. The last-minute gift is now sitting under the tree, the dress has been dry-cleaned and is now ready to be worn, and the turkey is in the oven. All you need to do is just make yourself presentable for the evening Christmas dinner. Hairstyle, makeup, manicure… take a look at the best tips to make yourself feel and look good at Christmas this year with the compliments of Beauty Elite.

1) PREPARE YOUR SKIN

Being your most attractive during Christmas does not only mean piling on the makeup and having a perfect hairstyle. Yes, ladies, you have to prepare well in advance. A few days before the festivities, be sure to eat healthy, reduce excess alcohol consumption, and drink plenty of water to avoid unsightly blemishes. Also, make sure you get a good night’s sleep in order to dodge those panda eyes and that dull complexion.

2) OVER-THE-TOP MAKEUP

The holidays are an opportunity to be a little more daring than usual with your makeup looks. You can go full-on glitter crazy, and try on that vibrant eye shadow you’ve always been too afraid to flaunt. This isn’t like going to a formal dinner; this is a fun it’s Christmas! A bold lipstick shade like a classic flaming red or a very dark matte would stand out perfectly. You can of course pay us a visit and experience our fabulous semi-permanent make up.

3) ILLUMINATE THOSE SHADOWS WITH A HIGHLIGHTER

We all want to shine brightly during the holiday, so we say, “yes!” to highlighting makeup. Illuminate your shadows; apply it delicately on the edge of your nose and on the top of your cheekbones for a chic look. There are plenty of different highlighting makeup products out there – from powders to sticks. You just need to choose the one that suits you best.

4) A SIMPLE BUT EFFECTIVE HAIRSTYLE

A festive hairstyle does not necessarily mean going crazy. If you opt for an OTT makeup look, perhaps avoid an OTT hairstyle. A nice loose bun or fishtail braid will be perfect for the evening. You don’t want to look too “slick” and “made up” – the holidays means being a little more laid-back and fun with your appearance! However if you do want to push the boat out visit us here at Beauty Elite we specialise in hair extensions so you can look as glamorous as you want.

5) BE DARING WITH THE FALSE LASHES

Thicken up those lashes by going for some falsies. A natural look will do, don’t bother with those complex lashes with rhinestones and odd colours. Nothing beats a doe-eyed look in holiday photographs! You’ll look perfect in every snapshot! Why you are on our website visit our gallery and see the fantastic eyelashes we can offer you, plus of course we can enhance your eyebrows with microblading.

6) GETTING YOUR MANICURE

When it comes to your hands, your manicure should be impeccable. Avoid glittery glazes – it’s not a chic look, especially after a certain age. Pick classic colours that are effectively eye-catching like red, burgundy, or why not black? And if you intend to wear sandals, do not forget the varnish on your toenails! Tip: Do your nails the night before to let dry and avoid any last-minute mishaps, or let us do them for you.

7) A NICE CLEAVAGE

We rarely think about it, but your neckline can also be highlighted. If you have invested in a V-neck dress, do not hesitate to apply a little highlighting powder to the hollow of your chest. Sultry glamour, activated!

8) ALWAYS RETOUCH ON THE NIGHT

After a glass of wine, a few dances, a bit of rushing around… even the biggest Hollywood stars don’t spend an entire evening out without touching up their makeup every few hours. The ultimate secret to being your most beautiful during a dinner party is to regularly look after your appearance. After all, you spent plenty of time putting your look together – you’re going to want to maintain it! Re-powder your nose, reapply your lipstick… this will help you look put-together all night long.

 

LET US ENHANCE YOUR LOOKS FOR CHRISTMAS

I am sure the majority of us wants to look beautiful, and especially at Christmas, so below are a few of our treatments that can give you an edge.

One of our most successful treatments is Dermal Fillers yes if you want to look young again this is one of the main treatment’s that can get you there, and these are the benefits.

Dermal fillers can be used to fix a variety of concerns related to facial aging, including:

  • Adding volume and smoothing out the deep creases that run from the nose to the mouth called laugh lines.
  • Plumping thin lips and smoothing out vertical lines around the edges of the lips.
  • Augmenting cheeks to enhance their shape, often restoring youthful fullness.
  • Filling out depressions (hollows) under the eye area.
  • Making indented scars from acne or chicken pox more even with surrounding skin.
  • Increasing volume to fill out gauntness in the lower cheek or temple area, which most often occurs due to fat pads shifting beneath the surface of skin.

We have seen all our clients leave the salon happy and looking 10-15 years younger and more, and used in conjunction with PDO Threads your look will have the perfect natural balance so no one will know you have received these Beauty treatments except maybe your close friends and family.

Lets take another look at how we can make you appear young again and give you a tight blank canvas to apply your make up on, maybe enhance your look with semi-permanent makeup.

SEMI- PERMANENT MAKEUP 

Micro-Pigmentation is in its simplest form carefully applied Natural Coloured pigments introduced into the Dermal Layer of the skin using a tiny Micro-Needle to create colour and balance, creating amazing results to enhance the eyes, brows and lips.

BEAUTY ELITE EYELINE

Eyeliner defines and increases the beauty of a woman’s natural eye. It will make the lashes appear thicker fuller, even if mascara is not worn. The semi- permanent make up colour is tattooed to both the lower and upper lash lines of the eyes creating a defined look around the eyes. Normally the eye-line will be done in two sessions i.e. Tops or bottoms on the first appointment then the second will be done a few days later. After 4 weeks, to allow the eye-line to be fully healed, and the colour fully developed, a FREE follow up appointment will be made if necessary to finely tune the make-up and reinforce the colour. The eyeliner normally will last upwards of 4 years.

To include one free re-touch after 1 month normally.

BEAUTY ELITE LIPS

Shape and colour of a woman’s lips is another huge key facial feature to the appearance of a woman, with semi-permanent make up we will create your lips to look balanced, more vibrant, and for them to appear fuller and more sensual. Lip colour can be applied either as a liner, or on the entire lip surface

With the semi-permanent process Lip liner can serve many purposes and has many advantages like correcting imperfections of shape or symmetry. We at Beauty Elite redefine the shape of the lips to create a more desirable look. We can blend the lip liner colour to gradually match the colour of full lip, or a bolder colour can be used for the lip liner. The Lip-line normally will last upwards of 2 years.

BEAUTY ELITE EYEBROWS

The eyebrows are one of the most important features of a women’s face, it frames the eyes and gives the face its individual expression. We will study the shape and contours of our client’s face, their individual style, and bone- structure. We will then design the eyebrows into their most desired and flattering shape and colour possible. Clients of Beauty Elite whom have uneven eyebrows or brows that are too thin, sparse or non-existent are filled in with a natural looking hair-by-hair process, or powder effect eyebrows if desired. Depending on the strength of colour, they will normally last between 2 and 4 years.

BEAUTY ELITE PHIBROW Micro-Blading  (Soft Touch)

Micro-Blading (Phibrow) is a process that has been around for some years for Eyebrows, but has recently become very popular. We use a multi –needle, normally 7, 11 or 14 points in a straight line and slanted, or curved in a hand piece holder. This is a manual method and we do not use a rotary machine. The effects are incredibly fine and give the illusion of very fine hairs which can be orientated in various directions to simulate the natural growth patterns of normal eye brows, but much NICER. This system is not suitable for everyone, but is ideal for young skin with darker eyebrows, or a fill in of patchy brows.

Due to the delicate nature of this technique we offer 2 free retouches, after 1 month and then 3 months to extend the life of the process. We recommend this process to be renewed annually.

 

WE LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING YOU SOON AND HAPPY CHRISTMAS.

The Fountain of Youth

If only there was a fountain of youth that you could drink from, especially when life has you feeling even older than you really are. While you can’t literally return to your youth, there are some things you can do that will make you feel young again.

Get your shut-eye

Your body needs at least eight hours of sleep every night to restore it. Unfortunately, most people are not getting the proper amount of sleep at night.

“The only time your body can truly restore itself is when you’re asleep.

Don’t forget your strength training

“When done properly, weight-training makes micro tears in the muscles, which leads your body to generate thicker, stronger muscle fibre.

Greene suggests using dumbbells while targeting your core and lower body with lunges, calf-raises, and squats three times a week.

Accentuate the positives

“Cultivating a greater sense of optimism will provide you with more positive energy to motivate you to do youthful things. The goal is not to deny the less-than-pleasant stuff that is happening, but rather to focus on what’s going well.

Give the gift of yourself

Research has shown that volunteering your time for a worthy cause can give you mental and physical benefits. In a study by researchers at Johns Hopkins University, it was found that older adults over the age of 55 who volunteered weekly to help children in a classroom had an increased activity level for at least three years after.

Anything that increases a level of activity for a long period of time is a huge plus, but the real news here is that this particular kind of volunteer work benefits children and the educational system as well as the volunteers, demonstrating the potential benefits for what many are calling an intergenerational social contract.”

Engage your social side

“Staying active and engaged is very important in terms of cognitive and emotional health. Maintaining a connection to others in social settings is important to mental, emotional, and physical health. Consider joining a club, church group, or hobby organization in order to connect with others who share your interests.

Take on a new hobby

Once you hit retirement age, or your children move away to college, you may wonder how to fill your time. The sense of an empty nest can be daunting and lonely. Instead, find fulfilling ways to spend your time by trying out a new hobby. Learning to play a musical instrument, writing that book you always dreamed of, or expressing your artistic side are all ways to find enthusiasm and joy in life.

Connect with nature

Make the time to enjoy outdoor activities every day. The sunlight helps you produce vitamin D and serotonin, which can boost your immune system and your mood. The simple beauty of nature also provides a sense of calm and peacefulness.

Take a cue from those who know

If you want to feel young, then spend time with people who are. Grandchildren can be a great source of joy, wonder, and vitality. Few things in life can make you feel youthful and free quite like the simple act of playing. Make-believe, dress-up, building blocks, or even colouring are like a vacation from the stresses of the real world.

Go and see the sights

Whether you dream of traveling to exotic locales, or just taking in local tourist sites that you’ve never had the time to see before, pack your bags and hit the road. Each new sight is a discovery, and the act of discovering is revitalizing all by itself. Not to mention you can make wonderful memories along the way. Choose a destination, or just head off blindly and see where the road takes you.

SIMPLE TIPS ON HOW TO STAY LOOKING AND FEELING YOUNG

Stress Less

Getting older without being doomed to wrinkle-dom and jiggly thighs does not require a high-priced trainer beauty treatments will still carry many benefits. We know the secrets for winding back time naturally. This advice will help you stay young and have you looking and feeling everyday fabulous, by doing everyday smart things: exercise, eat healthy, de-stress — not so hard, right? Try it today.

 

  1. Give yourself a break

Recent studies show that stress causes physical changes in the body that can accelerate aging. Surges of the hormones adrenaline and cortisol cause blood pressure to rise and the heart to beat faster. These days, when our stressors seem unrelenting (a steady stream of job pressures, traffic jams, money problems), chronic doses of adrenaline and cortisol take a heavy toll on our physical and emotional health. “Sixty to 90 percent of all doctors’ visits each year are related to anxiety, depression, obsessive anger and hostility, insomnia, high blood pressure, heart attacks — all problems caused by stress.

The most effective way to halt this destructive chain of events is to meditate, Try it! Once or twice daily, for 10 to 20 minutes (yes, you do have the time — you just have to make it), sit in a quiet place, close your eyes, relax your muscles, roll your head, neck, and shoulders, and breathe deeply. On each exhale, repeat your mantra. Do yoga, or something active and repetitive, like running, instead. Focus on your breathing and how your feet land with each stride.

 

  1. Consume more fat

The healthy kind, that is. Omega-3 fatty acids (found in salmon, walnuts, and seeds) help stabilize your mood, maintain bone strength, and help prevent visible signs of aging by reducing inflammation in the joints Omega-3s also boost the ability of the body’s enzymes to pull fat out of storage, from your hips and use it as energyOmega-3s keep you healthy and your skin radiant.”

 

  1. Get off the couch

Not only does regular exercise help you lose weight, tone muscles, build healthier bones, and boost mood, it can also help you think clearly. Try it! Make time for three 20-minute workouts a week, run, bike, swim, dance do whatever you enjoy most.

 

  1. Feel the love

Anyone who’s ever fallen head over heels or discovered an activity that makes them eager to jump out of bed in the morning knows that passion is a powerful drug. The ability to embrace life boosts self-esteem, fuels the immune system, and improves cardiovascular health. Passion in bed can be particularly beneficial: “Loving touches release hormones, including oxytocin, that reduce stress and anxiety. Try it! Banish boredom and isolation at all costs. Rekindle the flames with your partner. Or discover a new love in the form of a mental or physical pursuit.

 

  1. Do yoga

More energy, better posture, greater flexibility, improved mood, and less stress are just some of the rewards of this mind-body workout. Through conscious yoga breathing, you become aware of the connection between mind and body.” That translates into major anti-aging advantages. Yogic breathing has been shown to oxygenate the cells, ridding them of toxins, helping prevent illness, and making skin radiant. Unlike other exercises, yoga poses are designed to work the inside of your body as well as the outside, which helps rejuvenate the digestive system, the reproductive system, even the immune system.

 

  1. Do mental aerobics

A study published in last year shows that brain exercises can prevent cognitive decline, and the benefits can last for as many as five years. Strengthen your mind every day by doing crossword puzzles, Sudoku, or Brain Games,

Yes we can give you that perfect youthful facial look but its up to you to take care of your body and mind.

LOOK AFTER YOUR HAIR AND IT WILL LOOK AFTER YOU

1. You Wash Your Hair Every Day
 As a general rule, hair should be washed as often as needed. For most people that’s every two to three days. Any more, and you risk stripping your hair of its natural, protective oils that keep it shiny and healthy. This is especially true for people who colour their hair, as over-washing can dull the vibrancy of their colour.

Of course, there are other factors involved. If you work out and sweat a lot, you may not be able to wait three days. In that case, try rinsing with water, scrubbing the scalp, and conditioning your ends only. If you’re dealing with a super oily scalp, look into a hydrating shampoo and conditioner. It sounds counterintuitive, but your body may be producing more oil due to dryness—attempting to naturally fix the problem. Second, invest in some dry shampoo to extend the time between washes.

 

2. You Use Too Much Conditioner

To avoid greasy strands, apply conditioner on the ends of the hair, where it truly needs hydration, not the scalp. Start with an amount about the size of a euro and try to disperse it evenly throughout the hair

 

3. The Wrong Shampoo

Sulphates, the cleansing agents in shampoos, have become the gluten of the hair world.

While they don’t pose any serious health hazards, some people find these chemicals dry out hair, skin, and scalp, or strip away colour, If you’re seeing tangling, frizziness, and split ends, try a sulphate free shampoo, which can clean your hair gently. Just keep in mind it won’t get as sudsy as a regular shampoo.

 

4. You Never Use a Deep Conditioner

It may sound like an unnecessary step, but the pros we spoke with all recommend using a deep conditioner—especially if your hair is dry, damaged, or split from colouring or heat styling, Use a treatment, at least once per week, get in the habit of pampering your hair, and you’ll notice it behaves and looks better.”

If you colour your hair, use a deep conditioner the week leading up to and after any chemical process it’ll help prepare your hair for battle, seal the hair cuticle, and prevent breakage.”

 
5. Been Using the Same Shampoo and Conditioner Since School
 Your hair gets used to shampoo and conditioner—and then the products start to leave behind a residue. If you’re more non-committal, keep a few different formulas in the shower to use depending on how your hair feels

 

After the Shower
6. You Brush Your Hair When It’s Wet
Wet hair is much weaker than dry hair, so treat it carefully. One of the worst things you can do is tug a brush through it, forcing tangles apart. Instead, try brushing your hair before hopping in the shower to work out knots and air out the roots.

During your shower, consider using a wide-toothed comb to work the conditioner through your strands. After, use a comb to work out tangles from the bottom, working your way up to the roots for the least damage Bottom line: Use a brush only on dry hair and a wide-toothed comb on wet hair.
7. You Roughly Towel Dry
This isn’t the worst you can do, but it’s definitely not the best. After showering, don’t vigorously rub your hair with a towel—gently blot instead blotting will not rough up the cuticle and cause frizz. If you  want to go the extra mile? Use a paper towel to dry your hair, this is the most gentle, if not the most practical, method possible.

 

8. You Use Too-Hot Tools
Whether your hair is fine and thin or coarse and thick will determine which heat setting will get the job doneSo it’s fortunate that most hot tools, like straighteners and curling irons, come with adjustable temperature settings.

Don’t crank it to the hottest setting right off the bat start at 300 degrees. If you’re getting the desired results, stay there. If not, gradually turn up the heat until you do. Typically coarse hair requires higher temps than fine hair. And no matter what, always use a heat protector As for those wet-to-dry hot tools intended for use on damp hair? They’re a no-go never use hot tools on wet hair it can burn the hair.”
9. You Skip Heat Protectant
It’s like asking if you need an oven mitt to pull something out of the oven. Spraying a heat protector on your hair proactively protects hair from heat damage, plus it seals in shine, calms frizz, and keeps hair from becoming dry,

 

10. You Use Too Many Styling Products
You only need three products: a protectant, a styling product (like a mousse for volume or an anti-frizz cream for sleekness), and a finishing product (like hair or texture spray). Use cremes and oils sparingly, and only apply to the mid-shaft through ends—a little goes a long way.

 

At the Salon
11. You Avoid Haircuts
While the six-week rule is definitely not set in stone, most people need a trim about every three months; for others, it’s shorter or longer..

Trying to grow out your hair? As soon as you start to notice split ends or the ends seem “see-through” or brittle, it’s time to take action. “The damage will just continue up the shaft, so by the time you [eventually] go for a cut, you’ll end up having to cut more than you would have if you’d just bitten the bullet with the trim.
12. You Overdo Chemical Treatments
Allow yourself two per year at most (aside from colouring), don’t believe the chemicals are harmless, they aren’t great to breathe in on a regular basis also spend your money on heat protectors, irons, and conditioning treatments instead of relaxing or straightening treatments.

If you must, only do relaxers every six to eight weeks, or ideally, up to 12 weeks.

We hope these tips will be of benefit to you and contact us if you require any further advice.

The love for appeared beauty and rejection for less attractiveness is our nature.
What we want in others is a want for ourselves also?

Its wrong to disapprove less beautiful things, animals, humans but beauty has its own benefits.
Not that beautiful people are less intelligent or less sensitive.
Beauty is a pleasure.
It’s a satisfaction.
It’s a gift of God.
Beauty is love.

What is particularly beautiful for everyone? There is no definition.
It’s our own choice to think, feel and enjoy, what is beautiful in our sense.
Looking or grooming ourselves to be more beautiful, is an art in itself.

Purification of our character, moral thinking, cool behaviour, love for creation, caring for others emotions, sensitivity towards humanity, less greed for power n money, makes a beautiful personality more beautiful, heavenly and pleasurable.
So lets look and approve beauty…both inner and outer.

Visit us at Beauty Elite we have the art to make you more beautiful on the outside the rest is up to you.

TURNING BACK THE HANDS OF TIME

Turning back the hands of time—it’s a quest for many women who simply refuse to age gracefully. And with all that’s available aesthetically (Botox, Fillers, Threads, Treatments) the visible signs of aging can be erased altogether. But what about on the inside? Are there ways we can beat the clock for life when it comes to overall physical and mental health and well being we say yes.
Staying young and beautiful forever used to be science fiction, but fiction is rapidly becoming fact.

FEED YOUR BRAIN

What you put in your mouth can affect your mind. And it’s important to start eating right as early as your teens and twenties to stave off mental stress. According to the NHS, UK adults between the ages of 18–24 suffer the most mental health distress.

Proper nutrition is a key factor in combating conditions associated with mental distress such as avoiding processed foods, sugar, caffeine, and alcohol. This will reduce the demand on the adrenal glands, which are responsible for secreting cortisol (the stress hormone) and play a role in managing your metabolism. We recommend taking supplements containing vitamins B, C, and magnesium to support overall adrenal health.

Monitoring your hormone levels throughout your life and taking action to maintain balance or repair imbalances can combat many of the conditions of aging, including insomnia, low libido, memory loss, and unwanted weight gain.

Hormones control everything in the body, acting as the body’s chemical messengers to ensure optimal functioning. For example, low testosterone can reduce your libido, while low levels of progesterone are linked to insomnia and other sleep disturbances. As previously mentioned, too much cortisol can cause foggy thinking and undesirable weight gain. The chronological aging process is unstoppable, but the way you look and feel over the course of a lifetime is heavily linked to hormone balance and lifestyle choices.

KEEP STRESS UNDER CONTROL

Chronic stress initiates an increase in the amount of cortisol-secreted daily, which leads to weight gain, irritability, insomnia, mood disorders, low libido, high blood sugar, and high blood pressure. We suggest stress-lowering techniques such as deep belly breathing , yoga and our Tibetan massage.

Cardiovascular exercise also helps relieve stress because it boosts levels of endorphins, the feel-good hormone. And don’t forget strength training.

BUILD A THICK SKIN

Our body’s largest organ our skin shows the signs of aging more than any other body part.

The most important preventive measure you can take against the sun is to build up your antioxidant levels and maintain adequate levels of vitamins A, C, D and E. We know eating lots of brightly coloured organic fruits and vegetables also boosts levels of these vitamins. These powerful vitamins work liked natural sunscreen for the body, aiding in the prevention of skin aging.

Of course daily sunscreen is also recommended.

DON’T SKIMP ON SLEEP

Within the last year, researchers have uncovered multiple bodies of evidence that sleep (both the quality and quantity of it) is imperative to multiple aspects of your health.

While you sleep, your body enters a sort of ‘repair mode,’ repairing damage from the day and preparing your body to handle whatever comes next.

Not getting enough sleep can also lead to chronic adult-onset illnesses that can shorten lifespan like type 2 Diabetes. “Researchers found that low-quality sleep increases insulin resistance by as much as 82 percent. Another study found that lack of sleep (less than 7.5 hours a night) exacerbates genetic influences linked to weight gain and obesity. Ideally, you should achieve seven to nine hours of sleep each night—and that’s actual time sleeping, not just lying in the bed.”

Even more motivation to move up your bedtime: “Without high quality and quantity of sleep, your metabolism can slow to a crawl.

FASHION FOR THE OVER 60S

How to dress at any age can be challenging, but for women over 60 it can be especially fraught. You want to be fashionable, but many of the styles you see advertised are clearly designed more with younger women (of a very specific body type) in mind. The fashion world may be focused on the young, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up on your fashion goals.

Fashion Tips for Women over 60

To start, there are a few tips and ideas that can help you shape your fashion style at this point in your life.

Know yourself.

You’ve probably tried out different styles over the years so you’re in a strong position to have a pretty good idea of which ones felt the most like you. Your fashion shouldn’t be based on what anyone else wears or likes. Think carefully about what you like to wear and what you think you look best in.

Be willing to take risks (but know your own limits).

Sometimes an item that looks a bit too adventurous in the store can end up becoming one of your favourite things in your closet. If you’re intrigued but unsure about an outfit, go for it. That said; if you know wearing something would make you uncomfortable (say, you hate the feel of heels or don’t really like showing too much leg), don’t try to force something that doesn’t feel right.

Value comfort.

Now that you’re over 60, you’ve earned the right to value comfort over fashion. If you never want to wear heels again, don’t. If tight pants make you squirm uncomfortably all day long, switch to dresses.

Collect examples of clothes you like for inspiration.

One of the best ways to figure out what you like is to collect examples of styles that work for you as you see them. That could mean putting together a scrapbook with clippings from magazines or saving images on Pinterest. When you need inspiration before your next shopping trip, go browse the items you love.

Find a good tailor.

Finding clothes that fit just right in the store is an amazing feeling but, for many women, it’s an extremely rare one. Instead of settling for clothes that just kind of fit, find a good tailor in your town that can make the clothes you love fit your body perfectly.

Don’t worry about trends (but take advantage of the ones you like).

Every year, there will be new style trends. If you like them, great. Go get yourself some clothes in the new style. If you don’t care for them or are unsure, stick with buying things you know you like. Those trendy fashions will go out of style at some point anyway.

Try out new stores, or venture online.

If you’re having a hard time finding clothes that are in your size or that feel right to you at your current age in the stores you’re used to going to, go try somewhere new. Look up stores in your area that you haven’t gone to yet. Do some browsing of stores online. Your clothing options go far beyond the one or two stores you’ve traditionally shopped at the most.

The Fashion Staples to Have In Your Closet

A few elegant, yet basic essentials that you can slip on and feel comfortable in can make a big difference in your wardrobe. You’ll get more out of your closet if you invest in a few key items that can be mixed and matched into different outfits.

Go for a few good pairs of jeans.

Jeans are appropriate for so many occasions and can be matched with many other items. There are a few styles it’s worth considering:

  • Dark denim, midrise boot cut jeans.Ideally, the hem should be about 1/8 inch off the floor and the jeans should have a good fit.
  • Dark denim midrise, straight-leg jeans.You can wear moccasins loafers, flat ballet slippers or kitten heels with these jeans. If you prefer boots in the cooler weather, then you can just tuck them right into tall boots without a problem.
  • A pair of white jeans (yes, white) that are either straight leg or boot cut.You can wear these jeans in warmer weather with a cute pair of wedge sandals and a tunic top. Or a crisp navy jacket with a white tank top pairs well together here. A pair of straight leg jeans goes really great with a longer jacket or a tunic top. Just a tip: Remember to match your underwear to your skin not the white pants!
  • A pair of well-fitted dress pants in a lightweight wool blendCommon colors are black, charcoal, or navy. These pants can be worn with a pretty silky blouse, a t-shirt, or a tank top with a jacket or a cardigan.

Make sure you have a good jacket.

A lot of your summer clothes can be outfitted for other seasons as long as you have the right jacket.

A few good options to consider are:

  • A fitted jacket that’s short and not too snug and is about hip length.Black is a go-to colour, but navy and cream work well too. You can wear this jacket with your jeans, skirts, dresses, pants, and just about everything.
  • A cropped black leather jacket, believe it or not, can be worn with everything in your closet.Cropped at the waist is the best version to buy; it looks both classy and lasts forever.

Skirts are still very sexy.

Skirts are comfortable and can go with a lot of the tops you also pair with your jeans.

One good style of skirt to consider is the black pencil skirt, as it’s very versatile. It can be paired with black tights and a mid-size heel or high heels, wedges, or boots. It can also be paired with a long tank and cropped multi-coloured jacket.

Cardigans are essential for layering and having a polished look.

Like jackets, comfortable cardigans can help you use layers to make lighter clothes appropriate for lower temperatures. Long sleeves or three quarter length that hit at the hips are good. A longer cardigan looks wonderful with straight leg jeans or pants, but not with skirts.

Invest in a few good tank tops.

Consider buying tank tops in bulk because they are the backbone of the closet. You can buy them in whites, black and cream to wear under your jackets, blouses, and sweaters and cardigans. They also project a smoother look under everything.

Dresses never go out of style.

Dresses come in three styles that are particularly popular with women over 60: the wrap dress, the sleeveless sheath and the fit and flare dress. The wrap dress is worn with the belt knotted on the side. Sleeveless sheaths are worn with a snug fitting cardigan or a jacket. The fit and flare dress is fitted on top and flares out at the waist which makes a flirty swinging look. Any of these styles can go with a little black dress, which is perfect for dressing up or down.

HOW TO STAY HEALTHY IN MIND BODY AND SPIRIT

1. Give yourself a break

Recent studies show that stress causes physical changes in the body that can accelerate aging. Surges of the hormones adrenaline and cortisol cause blood pressure to rise and the heart to beat faster. These days, when our stressors seem unrelenting (a steady stream of job pressures, traffic jams, money problems), chronic doses of adrenaline and cortisol take a heavy toll on our physical and emotional health. It is said that “Sixty to 90 percent of all doctors’ visits each year are related to anxiety, depression, obsessive anger and hostility, insomnia, high blood pressure, heart attacks — all problems caused by stress,”

The most effective way to halt this destructive chain of events is to meditate, using a relaxation response.” The technique involves repeating a mantra — a word, sound, phrase, or prayer — for as little as 10 minutes a day, this meditation can help prevent age-related changes in the brain.

Try it! Once or twice daily, for 10 to 20 minutes (yes, you do have the time — you just have to make it), sit in a quiet place, close your eyes, relax your muscles, roll your head, neck, and shoulders, and breathe deeply. On each exhale, repeat your mantra. If other thoughts try to invade, tell yourself, “Oh, well,” and return to your word or phrase. When you’re done, keep your eyes closed for an extra minute; slowly allow everyday thoughts to flow back into your mind. Still not into the idea of meditation? Do yoga, or something active and repetitive, like running, instead. Focus on your breathing and how your feet land with each stride.

2. Consume more fat

The healthy kind, that is. Omega-3 fatty acids (found in salmon, walnuts, and seeds) help stabilize your mood, maintain bone strength, and help prevent visible signs of aging by reducing inflammation in the body

Try it! “Virtually every expert agrees that you need two grams of omega-3 fatty acids a day, eat plenty of fatty fish such as wild salmon (a 3-ounce serving has 6.9 grams), as well as walnuts (one-half ounce has 9.2 grams), If you aren’t getting enough omega-3s from your diet, consider taking fish-oil supplements.

3. Get off the couch

Not only does regular exercise help you lose weight, tone muscles, build healthier bones, and boost mood, it can also help you think clearly. Studies cited by the National Institute on Aging demonstrate a connection between physical exercise and better brainpower. Walking for just 10 minutes a day lowers your risk of Alzheimer’s by 40 percent,”

Try it! Make time for three 20-minute workouts a week. Run, bike, swim, dance — do whatever you enjoy most.

4. Feel the love

Anyone who’s ever fallen head over heels or discovered an activity that makes them eager to jump out of bed in the morning knows that passion is a powerful drug. The ability to embrace life boosts self-esteem, fuels the immune system, and improves cardiovascular health. Passion in bed can be particularly beneficial.

Try it! Banish boredom and isolation at all costs. Rekindle the flames with your partner. Or discover a new love in the form of a mental or physical pursuit: Take up painting, join a book club, start a running program (you’ll find motivation and tips and connect with other women like you, do whatever it is that makes you feel energized and alive.

5. Drink red wine

Last fall, a ground breaking study showed that mice on a high-fat diet supplemented with resveratrol, a substance found in the skin of grapes, had longer average lifespans than those not given the resveratrol. Clinical trails proved resveratrol clearly reduced the risk of diabetes and liver problems in mice, leading to a significant decline in obesity-related deaths. But here’s the catch, you’d have to drink 180 bottles of red wine a day to get the same benefits not recommended.

Researchers are working now to improve the potency of resveratrol in order to develop a pill that contains the optimum amount of the substance. In the meantime, there’s plenty of evidence that a little red wine can offset a host of health problems.

6. Do yoga

More energy, better posture, greater flexibility, improved mood, and less stress are just some of the rewards of this mind-body workout. Through conscious yoga breathing, you become aware of the connection between mind and body that translates into major anti-aging advantages. Yogic breathing has been shown to oxygenate the cells, ridding them of toxins, helping prevent illness, and making skin radiant. Unlike other exercises, says Lee, yoga poses are designed to work the inside of your body as well as the outside, which helps rejuvenate the digestive system, the reproductive system, even the immune system.

7. Bite into a Superfruit

Pomegranate juice has been found to lower cholesterol and blood pressure, possibly delay the onset of atherosclerosis, and potentially help reduce the risk of Alzheimer’s disease; researchers believe it may also help prevent some forms of cancer from starting or progressing. Pomegranates can also protect the skin from damage caused by UV rays, according to a latest study.

Another promising anti-ager is the goji berry, a fruit native to Tibet that boasts 500 times more vitamin C by weight than an orange and is considered to be the most abundant source of carotenoids, a type of antioxidant, on earth. This little nutritional powerhouse — which tastes like a denser, sweeter cranberry — also contains more iron than spinach, 18 amino acids, calcium, magnesium, zinc, selenium, and vitamins B1, B2, B6 and E. he Goji berry stimulates the release of human growth hormone, a natural substance in the body that improves our ability to sleep, helps us look younger, reduces fat, improves memory, boosts libido, and enhances the immune system, he says.

8. Slather your skin with supplements

Retinol, a type of vitamin A (and a non-prescription, weaker-strength relative of Retinal-A), is considered the most effective over-the-counter treatment to smooth the skin and prevent wrinkles. Retinols cause the skin to gently peel, revealing a silkier, rosier, and more supple layer.

There are also benefits to be had using Alpha lipoic acid, a potent antioxidant that naturally occurs in the body. “Alpha lipoic acid is a wonderful anti-aging mechanism. It has been shown to reduce fine lines, improve skin texture, tighten pores, and give skin a general radiance.
