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!”
