When famous women are asked what their secrets are for looking younger, they’ll usually say diet, exercise, meditation and even a positive outlook on life keeps them glowing. They leave out the parts where they get Botox every 6 months and have a personal trainer to maintain a body of a 25 year old. For most of us, that’s just not realistic, and we need options for what we can do to keep up our bodies without breaking the bank. Here’s the list of small changes to stay young that we’re sure the celebrity women are doing, they just won’t tell you about it!
Use Silicone Primers + Serums To Fill In Lines
A silicone primer is great at reducing the visibility of fine lines and ensures your makeup applies flawlessly. Don’t wear products containing silicone for too long though, or you risk clogging your pores and breaking out. You can always put a silicone primer in spots that need filling and a hydrating primer on the rest of your face to get the benefits of both. Serums containing silicone or silica can also help reduce the appearance of dark spots and offer protection against moisture loss.
Take Verisol Collagen Supplements
Studies have shown that taking collagen supplements with bioactive Verisol helped reduce wrinkles in as little as 4 weeks. Usually you see collagen in skincare products and even added into drinks or edibles, but these specific collagen peptides are important for actually absorbing the collagen and gaining its anti-aging benefits. Take these supplements for a month or two and enjoy higher skin elasticity, less cellulite and better nails!
Use A Facial Brush
Exfoliating regularly with a facial brush is an easy way to get smooth, brighter looking skin. Removing dead skin cells will help your serums penetrate your skin deeper and will give you the youthful glow you’re looking for. The all new Ona facial brush by TAO clean has the added benefit of a UV sanitizing station to keep away any dangerous germs.
Shave Your Face With A Face Razor
To some women, the idea of shaving your face seems weird, foreign, and unnecessary, but that couldn’t be further from the truth! Shaving your face removes the peach fuzz that gets in the way of applying makeup and reduces the effectiveness of your skincare routine. Shaving regularly also manually exfoliates your skin, so you’re encouraging skin cell turnover which means prettier skin coming through faster.
Wear Sunscreen Daily
We know we should be wearing sunscreen everyday, but don’t limit where you apply it. The more sunscreen the better your skin will age, so if you apply it on any exposed skin then all of you will age nicely, not just your face. Wearing hats, bigger sunglasses and covering up overall gives your skin a better chance and not getting damaged by your daily environment, so if you don’t want to cover yourself in sunscreen, just cover up!
Apply Retinol on Face, Neck + Hands
Retinol works great to reduce wrinkles, so don’t forget to put in on the other places on your body that will inevitably show your age. Hands are a telltale sign of aging because we forget to apply skincare there the way we do on our faces. Similarly, your decolletage is an often neglected area because it seems unnecessary to use so much product, but the sooner you start treating that skin as part of your face, the sooner you’ll have a start on aging equally throughout your body.
Whiten Your Teeth
Teeth get more yellow and stained as we get older, so to maintain a youthful look, remember to keep a good oral health routine and add some whitening products into your monthly self-care. Don’t put a lot of effort into keeping your skin flawless, but then forget about the importance of your smile. That’s the first thing people will notice about you, so prioritize it!
Wear Frownies At Night
These skin patches help reduce wrinkles by smoothing out the skin and helping your face muscles relax. You need to wear them for hours at a time on a regular basis to see results, so wear them at night and wake up with visibly smoother skin.
Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize
Skin dries out as we age and moisturizing should never be optional, but it especially isn’t when we get into our thirties and beyond. Dry skin ages us no matter how old we are, so invest in a quality moisturizer with hyaluronic acid, ceramides and glycerin to lock in moisture and stay dewy all day.
