Anti-Aging Skincare

You’ve probably seen a hundred adverts telling you about every anti-aging skincare product under the sun, but how do you know which ones really work? Here are some of the most effective products for aging: Retinoid creams. These are vitamin A derivatives that boost your skin’s natural collagen, plumping it up and removing those fine lines.

Anti-Aging Makeup Secrets

Having a few top anti-aging makeup secrets up your sleeve will help you look your best at any age. Here are the best secret short-cuts to looking younger:

  • Hair highlights are a great way to counter-effect grey hairs and brighten your complexion. Keep them subtle however, so that they blend in to the grey.
  • Avoid bronzers and other ‘young’ makeup looks, as these will only make you appear as though you’re trying to mask your age.
  • Stick to subtle peaches and yellow undertones for foundations and blushes for a natural glowing look.
  • Blush accentuates cheekbones, making your face look younger and lifted.
  • Look for illuminating or light reflecting foundations, which brighten the skin.
  • Avoid loose powder, and try to limit the use of powder to the nose and forehead.
  • Look for lip colour with added sunblock to protect your lips and will keep them looking plumper for longer.
  • Apply dark brown or grey mascara, but only to the top lashes. Mascara on the lower lashes can make the face appear dragged down.

Looking and feeling good at any age is really not difficult once you get into the habit of following these simple Makeup Tips to help you achieve the best results.
