Women over 60 swear by these two body products for smooth, soft skin

Smooth skin women over 60

You can have smooth, glowing skin from head to toe– even if you are in your 60s or 70s. All you need are the right products. At Blue Hare, we are always on the lookout for products that particularly benefit older, but vibrant, women like us. We found two that will give you soft, radiant skin.

Most discussions about skin care focus on our faces. After all, that’s where our skin is most visible. But while we are careful to moisturize and use sunscreen even on wintry days, we need to focus on the rest of our bodies as well.

Whether we’re dressing for social occasions or just curling up at home with a good book, we’ll feel cared for and beautiful with smooth, glowing skin.

Product 1: A Salux Exfoliating Japanese Beauty Skin Cloth

The Japanese have known for centuries that exfoliating the skin and encouraging circulation is the key to a healthy, glowing epidermis. Enter the Salu exfoliating cloth.

The cloth is made of nylon and comes in a range of colors.  There is no difference in the exfoliation strength of the different colors—they are all the same.

How to use your Salux

When you are in the shower and have soaped and rinsed, wet your Salux and gently exfoliate your skin, starting with your legs and arms.  Swipe your skin gently and consistently, not too hard vigorously. The key is to exfoliate your skin, not aggravate it.

With repeated practice you will learn how much your skin can tolerate.  When you have finished, rinse off and dry.  Expect your skin to be slightly reddened from the pressure. This means that you have exfoliated dead skin cells while increasing your circulation.

Where to buy the Salux

Anything that is worth having is worth copying as far as counterfeiters are concerned.  The Salux cloth is no exception.  Counterfeit cloths abound on the internet, on Amazon and on eBay. With this in mind, we found two reliable and authentic sites to purchase the real Salux cloth from.  They are the Salux company website, which has US, Canadian and International sites and a reputation for very fast customer service.

The other reliable site is which sells authentic Salux cloths that they source from the company.  If you decide to purchase your Salux from another source, check the Salux website for ways to spot counterfeits.  Authentic Salux cloths are always made in Japan.

Product 2: L’Occitane Almond Milk Veil

There are so many choices when choosing a body lotion, it can be overwhelming to make a decision. In our quest for products for women over 60, we look that best suit our needs–in this case, a tendency toward rough, dry skin, especially in the winter. And we found it in the Almond Milk Veil, a product in L’Occitane’s amande line.

L’Occitane’s products are sourced, in part, from flowers and herbs growing in the French countryside.  The texture of this cream is ultra-light and fast absorbing so you can dress soon after applying it.  It combines almond oil, milk, and proteins to nourish, soften, and tone the skin. It’s also rich in shea butter from a sustainable, fair-trade source. Women who tested the cream found that it visably softened, smoothed, and moisturized their skin.

Where to buy L’Occitane’s Almond Milk Veil

You can find Almond Milk Veil at a dedicated L’Occitane shop, where it’s always a treat to explore their many natural products. You can also order online directly from L’Occitane or
