Aging Skin? Turn Back the Clock With These Beauty Tips

None of us can escape the aging process. Soon enough, those pesky age lines will appear on our faces and the process of getting old will begin. But, there are a few things you can do to keep your skin looking as young as possible for as long as possible. No, there isn’t a magic elixir that can turn back time as soon as your skin starts to age. But, taking care of your skin will mean you’ll be able to look fabulous at any age. So, what are the secrets?

Don’t Plough on the Make-Up

When you’re having a bad day and you’ve got dark circles under your eyes, along with blemishes you could really do without, it’s tempting to apply more make-up in an effort to cover up your imperfections. But, the more makeup you used, the older you tend to look. There’s nothing more youthful looking than fresh, natural skin. So, instead of covering yourself in concealer, only use a dot of it in places where it’s really needed. Make-up isn’t natural for the skin, so you could find that it damages your skin if you use a lot of it.


Tinted Moisturizer

Having a bit of color in your skin can make all the difference to how you feel. It’s especially important during the Autumn and Winter when it can be difficult to get your fair share of sunlight. Using a tinted moisturizer will do two things: give you the color you’re looking for and prep your skin ready for make-up. It’s easy for foundation to sink into lines, whether you use liquid or powder. Using a moisturizer helps to fill out those lines before applying make-up.

Hydration

Part and parcel of taking care of your skin is staying hydrated. It’s important to drink at least 2 litres of water a day to get the fluid your body needs to function properly. If you become dehydrated, your skin is the first thing to suffer because the body absorbs all the moisture from the surface to hydrate the major organs. In addition to this, use a night cream with anti aging to replace the moisture lost throughout the night and from late night hot showers or baths. A lot of these night creams are specifically designed to replenish aging skin.

Focus on Your Eyes

Your eyes should be your show stopper when it comes to dressing up your face. You can turn back the clock instantly by applying mascara to well curled eyelashes. To go the extra mile, add some shimmering eye shadow to your lids and define your eyebrows with a gentle powder. If your eyes are making a statement, attention will immediately be drawn to them, instead of the rest of your face.

Pop of Color

Nude lipsticks are in, but they aren’t much use to someone who has dull skin. If you’re missing your glow and your skin isn’t playing ball, add a pop of color to your lips instead. Go for powerful pinks, punchy reds and seductive auburns.
