10 ways to look 10 years younger!

Avoid­ing those age give­aways is eas­ier than you think

Woman's Weekly (UK) - - Contents -

1 BROWS

The colour of our brows pales as we age, so ad­ding a bit of colour and def­i­ni­tion works won­ders when it comes to rolling back the years. A fail-safe op­tion is a brow gel that you ap­ply to the hairs with a spoolie brush – it looks like a small mas­cara. This adds colour and thick­ness with­out the risk of you over­do­ing it.

2 neck

The skin on your neck is ac­tu­ally thin­ner than that on your face, and needs to be treated to plump­ing and hy­drat­ing in­gre­di­ents like hyaluronic acid to ward off creases and cre­pi­ness. Some­times, the solution is as sim­ple as ap­ply­ing your skin­care must-haves to your neck as well as your face, but if you're will­ing to spend the ex­tra pen­nies, there are prod­ucts out there specif­i­cally tar­geted at plump­ing up that area.

3 Lips

We all know that our lips thin as we age, but there’s no need to re­sort to a filler. Scrib­ble a high­lighter pen­cil in the cen­tre of your top and bot­tom lip, and blend out­wards with your fin­gers. Leave as it is or fin­ish with a slick of gloss over the top. This gives the ap­pear­ance of plumper, fuller lips.

4 TEETH

An Oral B study asked 2,000 Bri­tish peo­ple to es­ti­mate the age of a model in two pho­tos, one of which showed dis­coloured teeth, while the other had been doc­tored to whiten her teeth. On av­er­age, the doc­tored im­age was es­ti­mated to be 13 years younger. Who knew knock­ing off over a decade was as sim­ple as whiten­ing your smile?

5 DARK SPOTS

As we age, our skin pro­duces melanin less ef­fi­ciently, and it can col­lect and cause dark spots. In­clud­ing a gly­colic acid toner in your skin­care rou­tine will help the colour build-up fade a lit­tle. It won’t elim­i­nate them, though, so a BB cream or con­cealer to cover them up is a great tool, too.

6 GLOW­ING skin

Dry skin shows up fine lines and wrin­kles, and dulls your com­plex­ion. For a quick fix, dab your favourite serum or face oil on bare skin or over make-up, ap­ply­ing it to the tops of your cheek­bones and the cen­tre of your fore­head and chin. This will give you an in­stant ra­di­ance boost.

7 DÉCOLLETÉ

The area be­tween the top of your neck and your bust has fewer oil glands than the rest of your body, so it eas­ily be­comes crepey. Al­ways use a rich mois­turiser with built-in

SPF when it’s on show.

8 eyes

Em­brace your crow’s feet – they’re laugh­ter lines that show you’ve lived. What we’re not so happy with are the dark cir­cles and puffi­ness. Use a caf­feine­in­fused eye cream to con­strict the tiny blood ves­sels at the sur­face of your skin and tone down red­ness and swelling.

9 Lashes

Lashes go grey and thin, just like your hair. Rather than pil­ing on the mas­cara, try our ap­proved sa­lon duo – the lash tint and the lash lift. A lash tint dyes your lashes darker, mak­ing them look thicker. A lift perms them, giv­ing them a Dis­ney-like curl and mak­ing them look longer. We rec­om­mend Nou­veau Lashes LVL treat­ment, from £45, which com­bines the two.

10 Red­ness

Bro­ken cap­il­lar­ies can cause patches of red­ness, par­tic­u­larly across the cheeks. Con­ceal­ing them turns back the clock no end. Look for light­weight for­mu­las that won’t look cakey or dull your glow.
