Beauty Radiantly You

Embracing Your Appearance As A Mature Woman – Radiantly You

I recently noticed a particular demographic of my audience that stood out from the rest: the mature woman in search of beauty advice that works for her. Me being a 22-year-old millennial can only provide these women with so much knowledge, but I do know someone who can help: my mom, Annette!

She will be contributing to the Radiantly You monthly column here on Glamorously You, talking all about beauty for the mature woman. So let’s start the series with a major topic: embracing your appearance. Take it away, mom!

Radiantly You: Embracing Your Appearance As A Mature Woman

When I’m talking about embracing your appearance as a mature woman, I’m not talking about “anti” this or “reverse” that, and I’m definitely not talking about how you can look 20 again. Aging is something we can’t stop, but it’s also something we shouldn’t be battling with either. Learning to love yourself more as you get older is imperative to living a healthy and full life. Here are my biggest tips for mature women:

Learn to love your body

No matter what anyone tells you, every mature woman is dealing with something on their bodies. Whether it’s flabby arms (that would be me), spider veins, or cellulite, I’m here to tell you that there is no magic pill to cure any of these things. No needle, treatment, or “miracle cream” is going to reverse the natural aging process.

Don’t buy into the entire industry founded on anti-aging and meant to trick you into buying unnecessary products. So wear that sleeveless shirt, sport that dress, and rock that bathing suit! Learn to see your age as an accomplishment and a sign of experience and wisdom.


Put your focus on staying healthy

This is the time in our lives when staying healthy is as important as it will ever be. This is the one thing you can control that has a direct connection to your appearance. When you lead a healthy lifestyle, it shows on the inside and outside! It’s not too late to improve your habits – start now! Get more sleep, improve your diet, and get some light exercise in. Trust me, it makes a difference.


Look to women in your age group for advice

I know, that 20-something working at Ulta has the skin you would kill for, but why would you take advice from someone who has never had to deal with your skin issues? Come to this conclusion first: you are not a 20-something and your skin is not going to look or act like one! Then, find women in your community or at your local beauty stores who can give you the most hands-on and accurate advice.


As middle-aged women, we must love our looks and not be afraid to show it! When we exude confidence, it inspires other women around us to do the same, and it shows the younger women in our lives what it’s like to be radiant and rockin’ it!

    This was a definte feel good read for me. Loved that mom wrote this. Great job! Im going to be 47 this year, and I agree 100% with your line “Learn to see your age as an accomplishment and a sign of experience and wisdom”. Thanks for the advice. 2018 has started out with more vitamins, more water, and more meditation.

    Being a woman in my lat 50’s I was surprised at how many women couldn’t believe it when I stopped coloring my hair. I have had many compliments on how pretty the gray looks. My husband likes it much better and I am very happy without all the extra hassle.

    That’s awesome you have your mom on the blog to focus on mature women. I’m in my 20’s too, so it doesn’t suit me specifically, but I can still apply it to myself: love yourself, be healthy, etc.

    Insightful. Being 35 with 3 kids there are many parts of your body that I have to accept😋. The best conversations happens when you talk to other moms who relate. I believe my age and circumstances have given me wisdom. Thanks for the post!

    Great article! I’m 31 (almost 32) and I am noticing a change in the way I look. My hair is turning grey (which I mostly see when I go to the hairdresser to put a fresh color over it), my legs and ass are getting way less firm and you know…wrinkles and stuff. Best thing for me to do is live healthy, but it’s not always easy 😉

    Great points. I am turning 31 next week and I feel like I am in this strange place as how to think about my appearance. I feel too old for some of the little trendy things. But I still have a youthful appearance and know I am not really old at all. It is difficult for me to find that sweet spot between hip/cool/trendy and mature/classics. I have decided if I just work on being healthy like you pointed out, it won’t matter as much. I will feel better about myself.
