None of us can escape getting older. It is one of the only certainties in life. But does that mean that we have to accept looking old too? Of course not. There are plenty of things that we can do to ensure that we still look young and fresh. Read on to find out what they are.
Dealing with dark spots
Darker spots on the skin and an uneven skin tone is an unfortunate effect of aging that many people have to deal with. It is caused by a concentration of melanin in certain areas. This is what signals to the skin to change color. However, there are products out there that can help you minimize this.
You can buy anti-aging whitening serum online. Which is designed to even the skin tone, and stop the concentrations of melanin that cause darker spots.
You can also use a highly pigmented foundation to cover any spots or an uneven tone. Just make sure that you apply it a little at a time, building the layers up gradually. Or it can look unnatural and cakey.
Dealing with dull skin
Unfortunately, dull skin can also be problematic for those of us over a certain age. A good way of dealing with this is to use a moisturizer or foundation that contains iridescent particles. These will reflect light and make your skin appear glowing and radiant. This is a fantastic way of taking years off your age in a matter of seconds.
Dealing with wrinkles
Of, course the dreaded wrinkles are the one thing that everyone is worried about when they age. You can have wrinkles in the corner of your eyes, or in the corners of your mouth. The forehead can become wrinkled, and many also worry about sagging skin around the neck and jaw line.
The best thing you can do to treat them is to protect yourself from the harmful rays of the sun with SPFs. You should also use a good quality moisturizer applying it regularly morning and night, with circular motions.
Dealing with thinner lips
One of the most obvious signs of aging is that lips lose their bounce. This is due to a lack of collagen that occurs after a certain age, especially in women. Thin lips often serve as a distinct marker of someone’s age. But there are ways of dealing with them.
Some people go the whole hog and choose to get lip filler injections. These plump out the lips without the need for any other treatment. But they can be painful, and they don’t always go to plan.
Others use products that in essence sting the lips. This cause them to swell a certain amount and so seem fuller. Still, others use some of the strange contraptions that are available on the internet for a fuller pout.
Whatever way you choose to plump your lips, make sure that use lipstick that is designed for you age. You want one that is not in danger of running into the small creases above and below the lips. You don’t want to draw attention to these, as that can have a very aging effect.
