3 COMMON beauty challenges, SOLVED
Stylist and Cityline contributor Lynn Spence offers simple solutions so you can wear your age with confidence.
The challenge: THINNING HAIR
“Thinning hair is something most of us deal with as we age,” says Spence. “It lacks life and volume and can make even the brightest outfits fall flat.” The solution: PULL OUT ALL THE TRICKS When it comes to healthy hair, choosing the right shampoo and conditioner is crucial. “I’ve been wowed by the Pantene Colour Preserve Volume collection,” Spence says. “I love that it helps protect my colour and keeps it radiant — and that it doesn’t weigh down my hair. It’s great to have a product with dual benefits!”
The challenge: DRY SKIN
“You may have noticed that as you age, your skin becomes drier and less firm. Staying hydrated is a great first step, but the real game changer is what you put on your skin. The solution: MOISTURIZE After cleansing, use a gel moisturizer like Olay Age Defying
Advanced Hydrating Gel. Formulated with hyaluronic acid, this moisturizer penetrates the skin’s surface and provides 24 hours of sheer and breathable hydration.
The challenge: AGING TEETH
When you’re confident in how you look, you can’t help but smile. Spence adds, “Your smile is what draws people to you, and stained or aging teeth shouldn’t stand in your way. Put your best look forward with a healthy-looking smile.” The solution: USE THE RIGHT TOOLS FOR A BETTER CLEAN Forty-eight percent of Canadians who haven’t seen a dentist in the past year have gum disease, though this can almost always be prevented or reversed if caught early1. Investing in the right tools can help. Using an electric toothbrush such as the Oral-B Pro1000 Black Cross Action gives you a dentist-clean feeling and it removes 300 percent more plaque along the gumline than a manual brush. Spence suggests pairing your brush with Crest Pro-Health toothpaste to promote healthier gums & stronger teeth. “Nothing completes a look quite like a healthy, beautiful smile!”
