Keep­ing it light and easy

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - FASHION & BEAUTY -

YouTh is light and easy, not over­done. If you’re do­ing too much, it prob­a­bly shows.

Hair

Youth­ful hair is healthy hair. healthy hair has a cer­tain shine. as we age, chem­i­cally light­en­ing hair seems to be a de­fault, but it’s ac­tu­ally coun­ter­pro­duc­tive for most peo­ple.

darker hair tends to look shinier, and we’ve al­ready es­tab­lished that shinier equals healthier. Your hair frames your face. We have so many men­tal short cuts that we as­sume light colour is the colour of youth or beauty, but if it doesn’t suit you, it’s a detri­ment.

Mas­cara

This is a favourite make-up item, be­cause it’s a great way to “wake up” the eye, but it doesn’t have to be black to be ef­fec­tive. Try brown or brown/black if you must, but you’ll get a sub­tle nat­u­ral ef­fect by dark­en­ing and thick­en­ing your nearly in­vis­i­ble eye­lash hairs.

Foun­da­tion

as women get older, some tend to rely more on cov­er­age. a bet­ter strat­egy is tack­ling the un­der­ly­ing prob­lem. You’re older, wiser and you should have a lit­tle more pa­tience.

see a der­ma­tol­o­gist or visit a friendly im­par­tial aes­theti­cian and then be dili­gent.

Eye­brows

turiser and weekly mask suited for your con­di­tion.

Next, adopt a hands-off pol­icy and in case of emer­gency have the proper tools on hand, keep them ster­ile and at­tack when your prey is most vul­ner­a­ble, af­ter a warm shower.

Skin

Mois­turise, mois­turise, mois­turise. a healthy glow starts with smooth skin. Even if you didn’t use lo­tion as a child, you should prob­a­bly adopt the us­age by adult­hood. You’re do­ing it to keep your nat­u­ral mois­ture and keep your skin nice and sup­ple.
