Age 53: How to look modestly young (10 beauty tips)

My patient yesterday asked: how i maintained my “young looks”  having reached my golden years three years ago. Honestly, I don’t have any secret at all when it comes to beauty tips, I guess I am lucky to have good genes. 🙂

However,let me share some of the things I used when I hit fifty and I wished I did it ten years ago (would have been better) and some of the activities I do and beliefs I can share which I think help me through my fifties and beyond.

1) sunblock

I prefer to use tinted sunblock because I don’t have to use foundation.


2) mask

to avoid Botox/filler injection, I used “meso-mask”, once a week for three months and once every two weeks for another three months, together with ‘Meso C” for another month. This is my brand and I don’t endorsed it to everyone, Each individual has preference and different kind of sensitivities, please consult your doctor before using it.


3) Eye cream and concealer

I have used eye glass since college years, so I took care of my eye bag even before I hit fifty. I have assisted in Blepharoplasty and I think I wont submit myself to that kind of surgery.


4) Diet – plenty of fruits and vegetable surely helps and regular exercise too.

I go to gym three times a week and walk once a week. When I am hungry, I usually choose fruits or carrots as substitute for chocolates and chips. I do have a “cheat day” once a week so i don’t deprive myself eating ice cream, chocolates and red meat.

5) Changing hair colour.

Experiment which colour of the hair that suits you best.


6) Eyeglass

I can’t use contact lens, so I have to use an eyeglass that suits the shape of my face, I think a shade of red when your face is a bit fair will do some trick, instead of using the traditional black.


7) SMILE – the cheapest !

please read my blog  (june 21, 2011) on “Power of Smile” under the category of ‘Beauty and fashion”.

8) Camera 360

It’s a good app to motivate myself, If I look good, I feel good and it change my mood for the day.



9) stress buster

I like photography but there’s some restrictions in the Kingdom so I used my coffee to paint. Look for something to do that you are passionate about. You can even experiment different style of make up or dress up even though you are just at home. My day always starts… looking at the mirror and give myself smile, believing today is one of the best day!

10) Friends

I keep trusted friends with utmost positive outlook in life, even in moment of hardships, we manage to look at the mishap in a funny way.

There you go ladies, beautybeyondfifty beauty tips,… have a nice day 🙂
