We can't control the aging process, but we can control how it affects our face.
If you're interested in trying natural solutions to look your best, but don't know where to start, I can help.
Here you'll find simple anti-aging beauty tips, videos, and tutorials to help you highlight your best features, feel confident and look great, at any age.
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.
Sometimes, small changes can make a big impact on your appearance, for example:
If you're over 40, check out your eyebrows. Have they faded away? Are they spotty? A little eyebrow makeup can make a HUGE difference in the youthfulness of your face!
Just because you're a certain age doesn't mean you have to stop wearing eyeliner or eye makeup. Forget age appropriate rules! Find what works for you and your features. It is possible to wear eye makeup without accentuating fine lines.
Do your cheeks appear saggy or deflated? You can restore some of that volume, naturally, at home.
You can temporarily reduce puffy, tired eyes within minutes with a swipe of an eye lift serum especially designed for sensitive mature skin.
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 inexpensive anti-aging treatments and beauty & makeup tricks that can help you get:
The sooner you start, the better your results will be. Below are some basic tips to help you get started:
There are many reasons for age related facial changes. But two that have the largest impact are changes in facial pads and bone structure.
Over time, the natural fat pads of the face change and reposition. Fat pads are tightly packed subcutaneous fat cells found throughout the face.
As we age, the fat pads in the upper face (like the cheek area) separate and thin out, which causes the skin to sag downward.
And the pads in the lower face increase, which makes our face look wider and bottom heavy.
Another major impact on facial aging is bone loss…
Bone loss and facial aging
The decrease in bone volume and changes in facial bone structure causes the skin to sag, and those strong, beautiful facial contours give way to a softer, more rounded facial appearance. The sagging also affects the appearance of the neck too. Read more about Facial Bone Loss and you can do about it here...
But, if you decide you're not ready for plastic surgery, you can help maintain facial bone volume and counteract some effects of facial aging through at-home anti-aging treatments, like facial exercises and massages.
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 actual results.
Of course, results will vary from person to person.
But at least you know what's possible with at-home anti-aging and beauty treatments.
If you currently get in-office procedures or have had plastic surgery, you can maintain your results longer with certain at-home anti-aging beauty routines.
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 facelift.
NOTE: if you've recently had an in-office facial treatment, check with your doctor before trying any suggestions on this site. Certain procedures like Botox and fillers require that you do not massage the face for several days.
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:
