How to Erase the Years off Your Face ...

By Eliza

If you’re anything like me, you want to look young and fresh all the time, no matter your age. Well, you can’t entirely erase the proof that you’re getting older, but you can certainly put up a good fight. Even if you have some wrinkles, age spots or fine lines, you can do easy things to turn back the hands of time and look way younger than you are. Sounds pretty good to me! Here’s how to get the results for yourself.

1 Add Exfoliation to Your Skincare Routine

face, hair, nose, clothing, black hair,As you get older, you may need to add a skincare step here or there. Exfoliation is one that can benefit you, no matter how old you are. This step will get rid of dead skin cells, which can dull your complexion. Removing them allows your fresh, bright skin to show through. Use a gentle product to prevent damaging your skin and use it once or twice a week.

2 Try a Serum That Contains Antioxidants

Eating high antioxidant foods, such as berries and leafy greens, is a great idea. But as you age, you should also apply an antioxidant rich serum twice a day to really infuse your skin with the nutrients, which help prevent skin cancer and fight the signs of aging.

You can easily mask them, though this is very hard to do with stick concealers. Why? Because they tend to be waxier and migrate into fine lines, emphasizing them, rather than hiding them. Use a liquid concealer instead, which stays put better.

5 Contour Your Eyelids to Open Them up and Give You a Lift

Experts suggest using a light neutral all over your lid, then applying a darker shade in the crease. Top it all off with highlighter on your brow bone and you’ll be able to see a dramatic difference.

6 Slow down on the Sugar

Cut back on it and you might see the results you want. That means you need to eliminate or severely limit soda, candy, cookies, cake and other high sugar foods. Read labels if you’re not sure how much something contains.

7 Monitor Your Salt Intake Very Carefully

The American Heart Association suggests limiting your daily intake to no more than 2,300 milligrams (for most healthy adults) so make sure you aren’t getting more than that or your skin may be paying the price.
