Every day, we learn that older women aren’t retiring and they’re not giving up. They’re models, they’re in beauty pageants and they’re hot in Hollywood. And now, you can add beauty vlogger to the list of things women over 50 are doing right now.
Well, at least one woman: Melissa55. She’s 60, but she looks 40. Dare we say, maybe even 35. She’s stupidly gorgeous, is basically what we’re saying. But how does she do it? What are her secrets? Well, she has plenty.
For Hair Volume
This Tennessee-based bombshell sleeps with a giant Velcro roller in her hair, but she does it in such a way that her husband would never know. The result is big hair, but not like big Southern hair in the traditional sense. It’s softened and fresh, and totally youthful.
Her Skin Care Routine
This is a really sweet video. People were calling out Melissa on a message board, saying she’s lying about not getting Botox or fillers. So she decided to set the record straight. She is very distraught about people not believing her, so she filmed herself up close and started slapping her cheeks and making funny faces. She even went to the message board and swore on her grandchildren’s lives that she has never had a procedure. As for her skin care routine, she does not use moisturizers. Ever. She used one once and it made her face sag so she doesn’t use any. Her daytime routine begins with a face wash (White Lucent by Shiseido), then Skinceuticals Serum 20, then Obagi Nu-Derm exfoliator and finally ZO Skin Health Oclipse sunscreen.
She really likes L’Oreal’s Infallible lipstick. The most wonderful thing about this video is the fact that she was inspired to make it because the lipstick was on sale and she really wanted people to go out and get in on the deal. Also, the description for this video is, “I appreciate everyone watching. It means so much to me. Love, Melissa.” This woman is the best.
Her ‘Old Lady’ Exercises
She calls them old lady exercises, not us. And she does each one 50 times.
For a Sock Bun
For those who haven’t mastered it yet, Melissa’s got you covered. “One of the best things YouTube has given me is my friendship with Kristin. We have so much fun together.” This is a sock bun tutorial video and it is making us weepy.
