Middle age is a beautiful period of your life where your beauty becomes more elegant and dignified. You should understand that however youthful you might look, you can never compete with the fresh beauty of the teenagers. But you can look beautiful in a more graceful way. I have so many of my friends who feel that their middle age is the beginning of their old age and fail to take care of their appearance, another mistake. You should take efforts to make yourself look as beautiful as you did when you were young and present a well groomed look.
# Watch your weight
Your health is an important factor that needs diligent attention as it is the period in your life when you can become a diabetic or have hypertension. Sustain an active lifestyle and do mild exercises so that you do not add extra pounds. It will give you confidence if you are able to maintain a good figure. Do not allow yourself to become obese, as obesity is the gateway to many diseases. If you become overweight, you will not be able to be active and however well you may dress, your total appearance will be disastrous to say the least.
# Take care of your hair.
Hair is your crowning glory in any part of your life. Apply oil in your hair in the night and wash with a mild shampoo in the morning. Apply minimum make up as if you are over made up, it will make you look very artificial and synthetic. If on the other hand you dress according to your age, you will absolutely ravishing in an elegant way. Do not experiment with weird hairdos and it will be appropriate if you sport a simple hairstyle.
# Your hands and feet need pampering.
Your hands will show first signs of aging and so take special care of them. Always wear gloves when gardening or when doing other work. After washing dishes apply some nourishing cream in your hands. Shape your nails and apply nail polish of mild color. Do not forget to apply cream lavishly in your hands before you go to bed. Take care of your feet also as you tend to neglect it as you age. Apply nail brush daily and cut your nails to give it a neat look.
# Simplify your dressing
The more you simplify your dressing, the more elegant you will look. A rope of pearls and a matching pearl drop will be an apt choice. If you prefer gold, let the chain be slim and slender. Do not wear chunky necklaces and heavy jewels, as it will not suit you. Too much of high heels will also look odd, chose a well-designed footwear which make you look well dressed. Over exposure of your body in your dressing will never suit you and the more elegant you dress, the more respect and admiration you will get.
# Gracious behavior
Your total body language should change to a graceful style and believe me; your poised beauty cannot be matched by the bubbly youth. If you are giggly and loud it will make you look crude and without sophistication. When you realize that your concept of beauty should take a makeover and become more charming than dashing, you will appreciate your middle age as a blessing that gives you a different beauty which is equal to the beauty of the youth.
@ Herbal Beauty Tips In Middle Age :
With age, the amount of collagen and elastin decreases, collagen becomes less elastic and more tense and Elastin becomes more fragile, and these changes lead to the dull sagging face.

One Final Note….
Your attitude and confidence play a big part in how you look and appear to others. It doesn’t matter if you look like a supermodel. If you aren’t a happy person, people will sense it. The way you walk, carry yourself and talk all contribute to how you are percieved by others. A plain and confident person is naturally more attractive than a beautiful and insecure person. Your inner beauty always shines through your outer beauty.
Love yourself, be good to yourself and respect yourself. Treat your body well by nourishing it with healthy foods, lots of water and exercise. Forgive yourself for gaining a few pounds or eating a greasy cheeseburger.
