Recommended Beauty and Health Products for Women Over 50

From time to time, I introduce you to beauty and heath products I have personally tested and would recommend for you to also try.  These are products excellent for women over 50….and probably others as well!  Let’s start today, with this Hand Therapy Lotion by Lather.  I use it at night and it is wonderful to wake in the morning with smooth hands.  The shea, oat and olive combination makes a difference.  It is a very good hand cream and I will order it again.

Many of you have commented on the change in my hair in the last year, and one of the reasons is my decision to invest in the Keratase hair products.  It has been so worth it and helped to tame a beast I have spent years trying to tame.  This particular product KERATASE ULTIME works so well for my frizzy hair and gives it a healthy glow.  I tried all of the less expensive brands and nothing works this well on my hair.

I love to crunch, and finding things on my healthy eating plan I can crunch is a bit difficult, but I have fallen for these RW Garcia Sweet Beet Crackers.  They taste so good…have wonderful ingredients…low calorie…and provide the perfect crunch.

With healthy eating in mind, the Atkins French Vanilla Protein Shake is my morning choice for after workout.  These taste like vanilla ice cream.  I often have one on the way to work, but whenever you enjoy one, they are very good.

Hope these product endorsements help you out!  Thanks for being here and make sure you always

keep smiling!

  1. Pam, I love your blog and read it regularly but these food product endorsements bum me out. Neither of these products is healthy, although both are probably very tasty. The crackers contain safflower oil and the Atkins shake–well Dr. Atkins died of heart disease. I’m not interested in debating the merits (or lack thereof) but I know that others reading with will use your endorsement to assume these products are healthy, and they are not. Food for thought?

  2. Hi Lisa, As always I will post your comments so others can decide for themselves. I like these products. I do not eat mass quantities of them, but they help me in other ways. I am not on the Atkins Diet. Just use the one product. We each have to research and decide what is best for us. Between the two of us the readers can do just that. I know you are extremely educated on the topic and respect your opinion.

  3. I have been using the Kerastase products including the one you featured since changing from colored treated hair to my own silver. My silver hairs seem dryer and more flyaway and the elixir in particular tames, moisturizes, and shines my hair. I just love it and it is good for my hair. The extra cost is worth it since my hair is a big part of who I am.

  4. I too, try to choose my snacks carefully. I avoid processed food and try to eat fruit and salads with a few unsalted nuts or avocado as a snack. There are a lot to choose from now but reading the nutrition label is essential in every situation.
    The reason why I commented is your beauty products sound fabulous but there is rarely any information regarding ingredients. I am mainly interested in products that have not been tested on animals and if the products contains parabens and phthalates. And products made from naturally derived ingredients (such as roses and aloe Vera) and if possible,recycled packing.

  5. Marcia, thanks so much for joining in. I consider myself to be an information pipeline that leads the reader to do the hardcore research to see if anything meets your own needs. I bring out products I have tested and believe are good products and worthy for you to take to the next level for your own research. Which with these, you can just go to the link and see all of the ingredients and hopefully get all of your questions answered. My readers have so many needs and requirements for beauty and health that I cannot cover them all and would not attempt to. But I can tell you…I have tested these and they work well, the rest is up to you. Thank you for the opportunity to say that.

  6. Thanks for sharing Pam! I appreciate hearing what works for others and always respect an individual’s right to make their own choice.

  7. I so agree with the above comment from Janet. Thank you Pam for sharing with us the products you enjoy. Many of these products are new to us and if interested, we can search further. I look forward to many more introductions to some of your favorite products.
