Mother’s Day: Beauty Tips for Mothers and Daughters

Most women get their first skincare and beauty tips from their mothers. As they age, each woman picks up new beauty tricks, and who better to share them with than mom? To celebrate Mother’s Day, here are three beauty treatments for mothers and daughters of all ages.

Women in their 20s tend to like a healthy tanned look, but the effects of too much sun, such as sun spots and discoloration, become more pronounced with age. The risk of melanoma increases too with age, so women in their 40s need to be extra conscious about skin protection. Using a face cream or makeup with SPF or a non-greasy sunscreen, such as the SkinMedica Daily Physical Defense®, are good ways for mothers and daughters who love to spend the day outside to protect their skin.

“The breakdown of collagen in our faces begins in our 20s causing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines,” says Dr. Nodwell, plastic surgeon and founder of The Ottawa Clinic. “Women in their 30s can benefit long term from BOTOX® Cosmetic, which studies have shown can minimise the appearance of ageing. For women in their 50s with deeper wrinkles, BOTOX® Cosmetic is a quick and easy way to smooth them out.”

Women tend to put on weight at two key times: post-baby and during menopause. For women with newborns, eating healthily and working out become difficult with a new baby-centric schedule, and during menopause a drop in metabolism and the loss of hormones increase appetite and make it more challenging to lose weight and keep it off. With new CoolSculpting® technology, women in their 30s and 50s can target excess fat. CoolSculpting® technology freezes and kills fat cells, which are then processed through the body giving patients a slimmer, trimmer silhouette.
