I’m about to sound really vain, but I’ve been noticing signs of aging since about the age of 25. When I look back, I can clearly see how ridiculous I was being. However, I have been carefully monitoring this one line I have between my brows, and if you ask me, it’s the size of a crater. Ask anyone else? They don’t see it. Needless to say, when I look at beauty blogs, I’m searching for ways to make my skin look youthful without resorting to invasive measures. I want to age well, so as long as I can keep my skin glowing and hair shiny, I feel I’m ahead of the game. That’s more of a priority than makeup trends to me, because I feel that I actually don’t really look that good with a lot of makeup — I prefer to focus more on the quality and health of my skin. When it comes to makeup, I’m looking for great products that enhance my natural look — a classic a palette with a fresh take and how-tos for healthy skin. Through my searching, I’ve found several beauty and skincare blogs that deliver just that!
And just like my 15 Style Blogs for Fabulous Women 40 and Up post, if you’ve found a great pick that’s missing (preferably a blog that updates often), please leave the link in the comments section. I also thought I’d share that I’ve found an awesome online community called Timeless Beauty that addresses a lot skincare and beauty questions should you care to dig a little deeper! Without further ado, here’s my list for skincare and beauty blogs for 40+!
