Best Beauty Habits at Midlife: What's Working for Our Tribe | NextTribe

The (Next)Tribe Has Spoken: Here are the Beauty Habits That are Working For Us at Midlife

We asked and the tribe has spoken—and you had some pretty enlightening things to say about what beauty tips are (and aren’t) working for you now. In a survey we posted a couple weeks ago, you loyal readers shared your best beauty habits and other intel—from how many products you’re using to what celebs you look up to as beauty icons (Helen Mirren, Cindy Gallop, Diane Keaton, Jane Fonda and Helen Mirren—did we mention Helen Mirren?).

A big take-away? We’re not spending a huge amount of time on beauty. About 46 percent of you responded you spend 30 total minutes a day on grooming. And that’s the whole shebang: Combined makeup, hair, skincare for morning and night on a routine day. And while 46 percent of us claim to spend more time on beauty than 20 years ago, some (12 percent, to be exact) are doing less.

Your Face, Skin and Hair at Midlife: What’s Working for You?

When I was in college, running around getting ready for a date, my friend used to quote her mom’s advice on the subject of make up. “A little blush, a little lipstick and you’ll be fine.” That worked well then, but as my 20s became my 30s, 40s and now 50s, my make up routine has changed dramatically.

Barbra Streisand Cloned Her Dog: Would You?

There’s probably a lot you know about Barbra Streisand – that her breakthrough was in the movie Funny Girl, that  “Evergreen” was one of her biggest hits, and that you’ll never forget the way she said that line, “Your girl is lovely, Hubbell” in The Way We Were. But did you know she’s such a pet lover that she had her favorite dog—an adorable white fluffball–cloned after it died?

Next Tribe photo from E-Trade ad about seniors who can't afford to retire

What You Thought About That E-Trade Ad

We asked you what you thought of the ad that aired during the Super Bowlthe E-Trade one that showed seniors working, working, working as DJs, lifeguards, and fire fighters….because they can’t afford to retire.

Most of you were not crazy about the ad, feeling it made old people the punch line of a not so funny joke. Where’s the humor in not being able to afford to retire?

Next Tribe woman contemplates how to draw the line on sexual misconduct

Poll Results: This Is Where You Draw the Line on Sexual Misconduct

 

As we went to tabulate your responses to our survey about sexual misconduct, the news was still rife with stories of misconduct. Famous names in publishing, politics, the performing arts, and elsewhere were dismissed from their jobs or investigated.  We saw Salma Hayek speak up, heard calls for Al Franken not to resign from the Senate after all, and waded through still more lurid Matt Lauer revelations.

What Changes Are You Making This Year?

One of my favorite songs is David Bowie’s “Changes.” During so many weird and volatile times in my life (moving, postpartum depression, moving again) I’ve taken comfort from that line, “Turn and face the strange ch-ch-changes.” To me it means, accept that change is inevitable; just roll with it. And so far, I’ve been able to do so fairly well (with a few exceptions of course).
