How A Companion Care Worker Can Help Your Mom With Makeup

Sep 30, 2016 by Matt Clinnard

Age is just a number, while real beauty is timeless. A little bit of makeup can do wonders for your mother's or grandmother's self-esteem and confidence.  

Who says that older women have to give up using make up? In fact, older ladies who worked hard their entire lives deserve to pamper themselves in their golden years. If your loved one doesn’t know which make-up is the best for her, there are many articles and videos that can teach her the art of makeup. Companion care providers in Tyler, TX, are more than happy to assist your loved one in shopping for beauty products.

Nothing plumps up the skin better than hydration. Companion care provider will make sure that your parent drinks plenty of fluid and follow a healthy, balanced diet.  Proper meals and regular hydrating should nourish your loved one's skin from the inside out.

The foundation, blush, eye-shadow and lipsticks that senior ladies use should be in shades that enhance the skin’s natural color while reflecting light to reduce the look of imperfections. Many products on the market today contain anti-aging ingredients and sunscreens to help repair and protect the skin from further damage. These products give the skin a healthy, youthful appearance. Your older family member shouldn’t use sparkly, glittery, or shimmery products. They settle in wrinkles and creases and make them look ten times worse than they are. Liquid eyeliner is too harsh. In fact, any eyeliner is too harsh for mature skin.

Sun damage is the number one cause of brown spots and wrinkles, so a good sunscreen and sunglasses are a must have. Companion care providers also recommend that your loved one gets enough sleep, works out on a regular basis, and avoids smoking and drinking alcohol. If your loved one isn’t sure about applying the makeup by herself, care keeper can accompany her to their beauty parlor.

Your mom or grandma doesn’t have to wait for a special occasion to apply some makeup and make herself feel beautiful. That is an advantage of golden years, the work is done, kids are grown up, and she has all the time in the world to relax and make herself feel special.

Applying makeup in older age can sound silly and unnecessary to many, but companion care providers agree it can do a lot for your loved one. If using beauty products makes her happy, let her! Scientists say that happiness leads to a stronger immune system, less stress and longer life. It’s a miracle what kind of wonders a little make up brush can do. Just like a magic wand.
