Read on for some special DIY beauty hacks for healthy skin and hair.

Importance Of Proper Skin And Hair Care Routine For Mature People

Maintaining a consistent skin and hair care routine is crucial for mature individuals. As we age, our skin becomes thinner, less elastic and more prone to irritation. Similarly, hair can become drier, more brittle and lose its natural shine. Proper care can help mitigate these changes, keeping your skin glowing and your hair healthy and manageable.

Natural Skin Care Routine For Mature Skin

Step-1: CLEANSERS

Traditional face cleansers often strip the skin of natural oils, leading to imbalance and dryness. Instead, go for the oil cleansing method based on the principle of "like dissolves like." In oil cleansing, beneficial oils are used to cleanse and nourish the skin without disrupting its natural barrier.

Options For Oil Cleansers

Here are some oil blends that you can use as oil cleansers:

Hemp Seed Oil + Lavender: Hemp seed oil is anti-inflammatory and the perfect option for acne-prone skin, eczema, psoriasis, and dermatitis. It balances oily skin without clogging pores and has antioxidant properties. All you have to do is mix 1 ounce of hemp seed oil with 10-12 drops of lavender essential oil, and you’ve made yourself a gentle, antibacterial and healing cleanser.

Coconut Oil: For those who wear heavy makeup, coconut oil is a natural makeup remover. It dissolves makeup easily, including mascara, without harsh rubbing. We recommend using liquid coconut oil for ease of application and to avoid clogging pores. Follow up with hemp seed oil to cleanse and balance the skin.

Raw Manuka Honey: In the morning, you can also use raw Manuka honey, known for its antibacterial and hydrating properties, as a gentle cleanser. Apply a thick layer to slightly dampened skin for best results and then wash off with water. This nutrient-rich honey is an excellent choice for cleansing your skin without stripping it of moisture.

How To Use Cleansers:

  1. Massage a quarter-sized amount of cleanser into dry skin (or damp if using honey) for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Wet a washcloth with hot water and place it over your face, letting the steam open your pores for about a minute.
  3. Gently wipe your skin to remove any remaining cleanser or makeup.

Step-2: MASKS

Using masks once a week after cleansing your face helps deep clean pores, exfoliate dead skin and rejuvenate your complexion. Rotate between these natural clay masks for best results.

Options For DIY Mask:

  1. Dead Sea Mud Mask With French Green Clay: This mask absorbs excess oils and impurities, tightens pores, reduces acne and blackheads, and promotes blood circulation. For added nourishment, you can add jojoba oil, aloe vera, and vitamin E.

  1. Calcium Bentonite Clay: Prepare a mask by mixing Calcium Bentonite Clay powder with water or apple cider vinegar. This mask offers deep pore cleansing and acne reduction. Due to its intensity, we recommend using it at night to allow any redness to subside by morning.

How To Use DIY Mask:

  1. Apply a freshly prepared mask to clean skin after cleansing.
  2. Keep it until it dries off completely.
  3. Gently wipe your skin with a wet cloth to remove the mask.
  4. Wash your face off with regular water to eliminate any residue.

Step-3: TONERS

Toners rebalance the skin after cleansing, removing excess oil, dirt, and makeup residue while preparing for moisturising.

Options For Toners:

  1. Apple Cider Vinegar: ACV is antiseptic and antibacterial, perfect for acne and blackheads. Mix raw, unfiltered ACV with distilled water (1:1 ratio or more diluted for sensitive skin) to use it as a toner. Apply it at night to allow its properties to work overnight.

  1. Cucumber and Aloe Vera: This toner is especially beneficial for sensitive skin. To make it, grate a fresh cucumber and extract its water. Add 3 to 4 tablespoons of fresh aloe vera gel and mix well. You can keep it in a spray bottle or an airtight jar inside the fridge for up to a week. Use twice daily for best results.

How To Use Toner:

  1. Take a small amount of the toner on a cotton ball.
  2. Apply it all across your face and neck after cleansing.
  3. Wait for it to absorb before applying a moisturiser.

Step- 4: MOISTURISERS

Proper moisturisation prevents mature skin from becoming overly dry and irritated. Even oily skin needs moisture to stay balanced.

Option For Natural Body Moisturiser:

Jopulence Natural Body Moisturiser: Enriched with shea butter and organic jojoba oil, our natural body moisturiser can be used on the face, neck and entire body. It replenishes and protects sensitive or inflamed skin, leaving it soft, supple, and deeply hydrated. Free from preservatives and harmful additives, it's perfect for daily use.

By following the above tips, you can build an effective skin care regimen for your mature skin.

Now, let’s dive into curating a natural hair care routine for mature, brittle hair.

Natural Hair Care For Mature Hair

1. WASH

Just like cleansing your face, washing your hair properly with a gentle shampoo is the first step in our hair care routine. However, overwashing can strip natural oils, while underwashing can lead to buildup and scalp issues. So, you must decide how often you should wash your hair, depending on its texture and type. Below, we have listed different hair types and how often they should be washed.

Deciding How Often To Wash Your Hair:

Thin, Fine Hair: Wash every other day or daily if it gets greasy quickly. Choose a gentle shampoo to prevent drying out your hair.

Medium, Thick Hair: Wash every two to three days. Select a moisturising shampoo that addresses frizz or volume.

Coarse, Coily Hair: Wash once or twice a week. Use a hydrating shampoo to maintain moisture levels and avoid sulphates. 

In addition, adjust your washing frequency based on your lifestyle and hair needs, such as increased greasiness after workouts or if your scalp is oily, flaky, or itchy.

2. Conditioner

Conditioning your hair after shampoo is crucial for maintaining moisture and improving its shine and texture. For holistic hair care, choose a conditioner with natural ingredients to help eliminate frizz and dryness in mature hair.

Option For Conditioner:

Curl Pop 1 Curly Hair Conditioner: Our plant-based curly hair conditioner best for frizzy hair care, transforming dry curls into soft, healthy locks. It nourishes and hydrates hair from root to tip, leaving it feeling silky and smooth. Apply it generously to the mid-shaft downwards, where hair is drier, using a wide-tooth comb to distribute it evenly. Wait for 3-5 minutes before washing. 

3. Treat

Treatments are essential for addressing specific hair concerns and providing extra care. After washing, incorporate treatments to enhance hair health and manageability.

Options For Treatments:

Curl Pop 1 Curly Hair Conditioner: Our all-in-one hair care product, Curl Pop 1 Curly Hair Conditioner, is best for treating dryness and frizz, a common problem women face after menopause.

Apply a thick layer of the conditioner to damp hair, wait 15-30 minutes, and wash off with regular water. After applying the conditioner, you can also wrap your hair in a wet, hot towel for maximum absorption. 

4. Dry 

Proper drying techniques are vital to avoid damage and maintain healthy hair. Below, we have mentioned the best drying technique based on your hair type:

1.    Air Drying

Air drying is the gentlest method for drying all hair types, reducing the risk of heat damage. After washing your conditioner, gently squeeze out excess water from your hair with a microfiber towel, minimising frizz and breakage. Allow your hair to dry naturally for a healthier, shinier finish.

2.    Heat Drying

If you prefer using a hairdryer, choose one that utilises technology to minimise heat exposure. Use the following techniques based on your hair type:

Curly Hair: Attach a diffuser to your hairdryer to enhance curls and reduce frizz. Dry your hair on a low to medium heat setting.

Straight Hair: To achieve a sleek look, use a paddle brush while drying. For added volume, use a round brush.

All Hair Types: Consider a hair styler that dries and styles simultaneously without extreme heat, protecting your hair from damage.

Heat Protectant Option:

7* Hair Silk: Our handcrafted natural de-frizz serum delivers shiny, frizz-free hair with a sleek finish. Formulated with a blend of botanical oils and extracts, it can be used as a pre-shampoo elixir, a heat protectant solution, an on-the-go de-frizzer or an effortless detangler. Apply a small amount to damp hair and distribute it evenly with a wide-tooth comb. Follow up with your usual drying routine.

5. Style

Styling is the final step in your hair care routine, allowing you to achieve your desired look while maintaining hair health.

Options For Styling:

  1. Heat Styling: When using tools like flat irons or curling wands, apply a heat protectant like our 7* Hair Silk. To prevent damage, use the styling device on the lowest heat setting.
     
  1. Natural Styling: Embrace your hair’s natural texture by using styling products that enhance its innate beauty. Whether you have curly, straight or wavy hair, use our 7* Hair Silk to add shine and smoothness and reduce frizz.
