Women’s skin is constantly changing — dry, oily, peeling, breaking out, puffy, dull, etc. But perhaps the biggest challenge for women to grapple with is the aging of their skin.
There’s fine lines, sagging, loss of volume, and deep-aging wrinkles, just to name a few. With so many products being advertised to older women, it can be hard to know where to start and what to buy.
Here, we’ve made it easy. It’s all about incorporating small steps into your skincare routine to combat the effects of aging and enhance your natural beauty and youthful radiance.
Sun exposure is the number one cause of premature aging — it causes upwards of 80% of noticeable skin aging. Even if some damage has already been done throughout the years, it is absolutely imperative to invest in an effective sunscreen for the face and body.
It needs to have broad-spectrum SPF protection, meaning it protects from both harmful UVA and UVB rays. Industry experts recommend a sunscreen with at least SPF 30 protection, but the higher the better when dealing with delicate facial skin.
Nurture My Body's 100% Fragrance Free Sunscreen is made with jojoba oil, zinc oxide, shea butter and vitamin E and provides SPF 32 protection.
Not only is the non-nano zinc oxide formula safe and moisturizing for the skin, but its biodegradable formula is safe for the environment, too.
Don’t forget — sunscreen application is not a “one-and-done” deal. SPF protection fades in approximately two hours, and even sooner if the skin is sweating or exposed to water.
If you don’t want to ruin a perfect makeup look or sport greasy sunscreen all day long, try using a powder sunscreen that can be dusted over makeup like a setting powder.
A daily facial massage is especially transformative for older complexions. It sculpts the muscles in the face (more defined cheekbones and jawline) and reduces fluid buildup.
It can also do wonders for improving blood flow, cell turnover, tissue toning, and boosting collagen production.
Experts recommend kneading and contouring the facial muscles by moving along the jawline and upward toward the high points of the cheekbones, under-eye area, and across the length of the forehead.
You can go right ahead and massage with your fingers and a face oil, but there are also lots of fun and effective tools for massage. Search for quartz face rollers, sculpting bars, and the extremely popular “gua sha” tool.
Pro tip — store your facial tools in the fridge or freezer for an extra cooling and de-puffing sensation during massage.
Toners often get a bad reputation in the skincare world. Many people argue that toners are stripping and leave cleansing agents on the face — which may be true of some low quality toners on the market.
But a good toner is essential for mature complexions. Toners help maintain the pH balance of the skin after cleansing, but they also supply an extra layer of moisture and act as a sort of carrier or primer for the skincare steps to come.
Make sure you find a toner with lots of moisturizing properties and natural ingredients.
Nurture My Body’s Lavender Toner revitalizes the complexion by restoring a healthy pH, tightening pores and calming irritated skin.
It effectively prepares skin on the face, neck, and chest for better absorption of nourishing moisturizers to come.
It's also made with 100% organic Lavender Intermedia Hydrosol for its natural toning properties.

Exfoliation is widely known and used to remove dead skin cells from the face and smooth the skin. But exfoliating regularly can do much more than just remove dead cells.
Exfoliating is also great for unclogging pores, preventing breakouts, helping other skincare products (like moisturizers and serums) penetrate more deeply into the skin, boosting circulation and lymphatic drainage, and even increasing cell turnover and collagen production — which is essential for bringing life back to mature complexions.
It’s even better to stick to an exfoliator with natural, organic ingredients because it’s treating the skin so deeply. Nurture My Body’s All Natural Exfoliating Cleanser removes dead skin cells, refines texture and prepares skin for serums and moisturizers.
It helps reveal skin's most radiant look and feel with organic exfoliating jojoba beads, organic rosebud to stimulate new cell growth and organic chamomile to calm the skin.
You can experience a rejuvenated, glowing complexion by using the Exfoliating Cleanser 2-3 times weekly on the face, neck and chest.
There can be extremely harsh chemicals in some of the most popular skincare products on the market. Everything from parabens, artificial fragrance, and even lead show up in mainstream products. Mature skin is extra sensitive, and you need to be extra cautious about the ingredients you choose to put on your face.
It’s better to be safe than sorry, and it’s better to choose all natural.
Nurture My Body is committed to an all natural approach — they follow the Farm-to-Face model and grow every single one of their ingredients in a permaculture garden in California.
What Women Are Saying About Nurture My Body
“I have been using Nurture My Body Products for at least 8 years or more. I use the shampoo, conditioner, face cream, sunscreen and bug spray. I am over 70 and have silver hair. I have had several people tell me I have great skin and hair! I only use pure products and organic and have for years. You may pay a little more, however, I want natural and pure products in and on my body! Thanks Nurture My Body for giving me the option to buy your products!”
Nurture My Body’s Founder, Patty Kerr, was an aesthetician for quite some time before she became ill from working around the chemicals in beauty products everyday. She began researching the ingredients that caused her sensitivities.
The results weren’t pretty — beauty products, skincare and everyday cosmetics were filled with chemicals, preservatives and fillers. So she decided to create a brand without any of that.
