As we get older, the skin goes through various changes. It starts losing its fatty layer, collagen and elastin. As a result of these changes, the skin starts losing its elasticity and plumpness. The skin is also robbed of its moisture at a faster rate. So it is no surprising to see that the skin starts to get dry and appear to be hollow and saggy as we get older. Wrinkles and fine lines will also start creeping in.
With proper skin care and a healthy lifestyle you can minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and even delay its onset, making your skin look younger. There are also cosmetic procedures that can turn back the hands of time. There are also several anti-aging make-up tricks that can have the same effect. If you use make-up, you should keep in mind that the make-up tools and tricks that you use back in your 30s will not give your skin that much benefit when you’re already in your 40s and may even make you look older. It’s time that you consider doing an update on your make-up.
Anti-aging Make-up Tricks
Here are a few make-up tricks that can help turn back the hands of time!
- Put an emphasis on your apples. This will bring back your youthful glow! As we get older, our face starts to become hollow. By emphasizing your cheeks, the attention is drawn to the fullness of your face. Doing so also gives your cheeks some sort of a lift. For those with dry skin a cream blush is better than powder while those with oily skin can use either. Lightly apply your blush and keep in mind that you are aiming for your face to wear a healthy flush and not make your make-up the main star.
- Keep your skin moisturized. A good facial moisturizer should always be included in your make up kit. You should have a light moisturizing day cream. Look for one that is specially formulated for the face and with sun protection factor or SPF so that your skin is kept hydrated and sun damage is minimized. Moisturize your face after a shower and before putting on make-up. If you want to minimize fine lines, wrinkles or dark circles around your eyes, get an eye cream designed to address these issues. Of course a night cream is also essential to treat dry skin, minimize fine lines and even out discoloration. At night, make sure that you wash your makeup off before applying night cream.
- Wear lipstick or lip balm. As we age, our puckers get thinner. With every birthday candles you blow, you lose a little bit of collagen and collagen is responsible for giving the body, including your lips its plumpness. A plump, soft, and smooth pair of lips will make you look younger. To boost your puckers’ natural fullness, simply put on lipstick or lip balm with moisturizing ingredients such as Argan oil or shea butter. Make sure that you also pick one with SPF.
These are just a few anti-aging make-up tricks and tips you can employ to bring back your youthful glow!
