Looking for at-home, non-invasive beauty solutions for a more youthful, healthy looking face and neck? Then you’re at the right place!
If you’re like most women over 50 you probably feel like you're still in your 30s, until you look in the mirror and think whoa, what’s going on here?
I don’t look like myself anymore!
You're not quite sure what's changed, but when you look in the mirror, you don’t recognize the person looking back. It can be unsettling and frustrating.
Caught between two worlds and feeling irrelevant
It's like you're caught between two worlds - the one where you feel like you're still in your 30s and the one you're in now. And to make matters worse, some women after a certain age start to feel invisible or irrelevant.
There is a real social phenomenon called the "invisible woman syndrome" where women over a certain age no longer seem relevant or visible in society.
One of my favorite scenes from the series Grace and Frankie puts a humorous spin on this all too typical situation. Warning: There is an offensive word in the beginning of this video. If this offends you, please do not watch.
While we may not have control over society's opinion about women and aging, we can control how it affects us.
For me that means putting my best face forward and ignoring those silly articles that tell us we can't wear certain colored lipstick or eyeliner after a certain age!
My grandmother wore red lipstick and colored her hair well into her 80s!
Knowing I look my best sends a powerful uplifting message to my brain. If I look good, I feel good.
I'm going to wear makeup that accentuates my best features, take care of my skin and looks as good as I can for as long as I can. Feeling relevant and valued starts within.
I refuse to give up just because society labels me as an "older woman".
How do we age beautifully, look less tired and combat signs of face aging?
For over 30 years I've been on a mission to look as good as naturally possible for my age. And along the way I found simple anti-aging treatments and beauty & makeup tricks that can:
The sooner you start, the better your results will be.
Below are some basic tips to help you get started:
When it comes to anti-aging beauty advice, it's hard to know what to try or who to believe.
Personally, I think the best reviews are from someone who's tried the products or treatments and got real results.
I'll show you what I've tried, how it worked, along with my before and after pictures, so you can see what's possible.
Of course results will vary from person to person, but at least you have an idea of what's possible with at-home anti-aging and beauty treatments.
While I'm pro-noninvasive, at-home, anti-aging treatments, there is nothing wrong with in-office procedures like Botox, fillers, laser resurfacing, or even plastic surgery. They're powerful and offer quick, dramatic results.
But, personally, my biggest worry is that I won't look like myself. I've seen women who had too many fillers, injections, or aggressive plastic surgery, and they're unrecognizable.
"I don’t mind getting older, as long as I always look the same"
If you currently get in-office procedures or have had plastic surgery, you might be able to maintain your results longer with certain at-home anti-aging beauty treatments.
Some anti-aging techniques, like face exercises, massages, and exfoliating peels can be preventative and even help slow facial aging. And the earlier you start, the better chance of aging well.
And, let's face it, that beautiful, healthy glow you get after a face massage cannot be obtained with a Botox injection or a face lift.
Another very important reason for at-home anti-aging treatments like facial exercise/message is that it can help maintain facial bone mass which can help keep your face looking younger longer.
How? Because loss of facial bone mass can contribute to sagging skin and other age-related changes in your face and neck. Click here to learn how...
NOTE: if you've recently had or get professional facial treatments regularly, always check with your doctor first before trying any suggestions on this site. For example: certain procedures - like Botox or fillers - require that you do not touch or massage the face for several days.

Over-The-Counter Beauty Products
Holy Cow! There are so many over-the-counter anti-aging gadgets, serums, and skincare creams - where do you start? How do you know which one to try?
I'll Try Anything Once! I guess I got this determination from my mother who always said: "Linda, you never know if you'll like it until you try it".
So, I buy and try a ton of beauty creams and devices.
While many products fail to thrill me, sometimes persistence pays off and I'm pleasantly surprised at what I find, like:
Hopefully through my personal experience along with contributions from women like you, you'll find some helpful anti-aging options.
