5 Ways to Look 5 Years Younger

5 Ways to Look 5 Years Younger

We all want beautiful, younger-looking skin but sometimes injections, laser treatments and other procedures just aren’t in the budget. Luckily, there are several anti-aging skin care products that can take years off our appearance without breaking the bank. Follow these five easy tips to look younger:

  1. Exfoliate
    The skin’s natural ability to renew itself slows with age. Regular exfoliation removes dulling skin cells for a more youthful appearance. SkinMedica AHA/BHA Exfoliating Cleanser provides chemical and physical exfoliation to give you a more radiant complexion. Plus, exfoliation helps your anti-aging skin care products penetrate deeper into the skin, making them more effective. 
  2. Apply a vitamin C serum
    This powerhouse antioxidant is known for its ability to improve sun damage, reduce inflammation, promote collagen production and strengthen and protect skin. Look for a serum with L-ascorbic acid, which is the most stable form of vitamin C. We like SkinCeuticals C E Ferulic because it includes vitamin E for additional antioxidant benefits.
  3. Prime your skin
    A good makeup primer creates a protective barrier over the skin, sealing in any treatment products you’ve already applied and preventing your cosmetics from looking too cakey. Our favorite is jane iredale Smooth Affair Facial Primer & Brightener. This brightening primer diminishes the appearance of large pores, dark spots, fine lines and wrinkles for flawless makeup application.
  4. Choose cream over powder
    Powder makeup can accentuate fine lines and wrinkles. Instead, opt for creamier formulas that help hydrate skin. glo minerals Luxe Liquid Foundation is a great liquid foundation that uses the light-refracting power of diamonds to minimize fine lines and wrinkles. We also recommend jane iredale Eye Gloss for the eyes and jane iredale In Touch Cream Blush for the cheeks.

  5. Make an appointment at the salon
    Bangs are an easy way to instantly look younger. A fringe will hide any wrinkles on the forehead, creating a more youthful appearance. While you’re in the chair, ask your stylist to give you face-framing layers. This will have a lifting effect while longer layers can have a dragging effect.
