Weather is changing, Spring is almost around the corner, so this week, for our #MakeupMonday edition, I will share my best Spring Skincare Tips!
Spring Skincare Tips
Between traveling schedule, temperature changes and busy lifestyle, having young looking skin at 50 requires maintenance, trial and error and of course, some work.
I’m not here to tell you that I’m 50 without wrinkles and look like that naturally, without having used micro dermabrasion or fillers.
So I’m here to share how to look younger at 50, but you can use my tips at any age!
A long time ago, I decided that I would postpone as much as possible, the use of harsher beauty procedures.
I’ve embarked on a journey which started in my late teens, to look and feel young, inside out!
So many of my readers are millennials, but no matter what your age is, taking care of your skin is more than just vanity, it is actually taking care of the largest organ in your body!
Before I share some tips, I wanted to let you in my best kept secret: youth is in great part, a matter of mindset.
Feeling happy, practicing self care and loving this beautiful body God gave you, not necessarily in this order, is definitely the first step!
Today I will share on how to have young looking skin at 50!
Start with your food and water intake
I drink 6-10 glasses of water every day. Yes, staying hydrated is the first step to great looking skin.
If you hate the way water taste, here are two recipes you might like:
You also need to get your game on as far as making good food choices and eating more fruits and vegetables, limiting sugar, fat, carbs.
Now that you’re drinking plenty of water and eating healthy, let’s talk about skincare routine.
I start my day with a good cream which is rich in vitamin c or a mild anti aging option.
My make up starts with facial sunscreen. I use a specific facial sunscreen to avoid blemishes.
My foundation liquid or powder also has FPS, because you can never be too careful.
I NEVER get out of the house without FPS on my face. I love IT Cosmetics moisturizer and foundation.

At night, I will not go to bed without washing my face.
Let your skin breathe
It’s important to let your skin breathe.
I don’t wear make up, unless I absolutely need.
Letting my skin breathe is something I really try to do. If my day is full of conference calls and writing at home, I will just apply my serum or moisturizer and nothing else.
As the weather gradually gets warmer, I change my moisturizer and products to welcome the weather change, but winter products are still ok during early Spring.
I think my most important piece of advice is that you disregard age, really, that is just a number for me.
No it’s not the Brazilian genes!
I truly feel young, inside/out!
That’s really my secret!
When I was in my late 20s, I told my mom I would be 40 wearing a miniskirt and she laughed.
I am 50, still rocking a miniskirt and a bikini!
It’s all about how you feel and what you believe!
Just remember to be happy, follow some of my tips and do YOU!
