Adding Unwanted Years

Beauty mistakes that can add up to 10 years to your look.

1.  Skipping eyeliner!! (WOW) You don't need to start ditching eye make-up.  As we age , our eyes start to droop at the outer corners- and liner & mascara can do wonders!

2.  Wearing the wrong lipstick!  Metallic lipstick finishes may look pretty on the runway, but it does not work after 40.  A better choice? Go for a lipstick with a sheen, not a heavy shimmer.  A sheer gloss will make thin lips look fuller.

3.  Blunt haircuts!  All-one-length looks tend to draw eyes down & therefore make your face look droopy. Instead, ask your stylist to cut some layers.  This brings focus to your cheekbones.

4.  Neglecting your hands!  (I'm guilty of this one big time)  Once every week , buff the back of your hands with same microdermabrasion you would use on your face (any nice face scrub will work)  Additionally, slather on a hand cream with SPF every morning, and massage a retinol product into the backs of your hands every night to fight wrinkles & keep skin firm.  Why spend all that time & money saving your face, when your hands tell the world your real age.

I love this Mary Kay hand collection...after use, my hands are sooo soft. 

In between use, i use Dove hand soap "cool moisture" & CUREL "ultra healing" all over lotion... it's  GREAT.

Great tips, especially about the hands. I've only recently started taking care of my hands, neck and decollete area. I hope I'm not too late!
