While you may be tempted to follow the latest beauty trends for a more youthful look, they may actually be doing the opposite—making you look older by drawing out the very features you’d rather not emphasize. Here are the top hair and beauty mistakes that can make you look older and how to avoid them.
When it comes to masking grays, hair color is the clear solution. However, if you’re coloring your hair with boxed dye, you’re likely sticking to one solid colour. This can make your skin appear washed out. To better frame your face and give your hair a shinier, more youthful appearance, add dimension to your color with thin highlights, dubbed “babylights.” For the best results, have a professional hairstylist color your hair, as they’ll know the right placement for the perfect anti-aging look.
Applying full-coverage foundation and concealer may give your skin the appearance of a flawless finish when first applied, but as the day goes on, heavier makeup tends to settle into fine lines and wrinkles. For the smoothest finish, choose a light foundation and concealer and use each sparingly. Try mixing a couple drops of foundation with your regular daytime face lotion for light, hydrating coverage. When using concealer under the eye area, stick to the inner corners, where under-eye circles appear darkest, to avoid drawing attention to fine lines and crow’s feet around the outer corners of the eyes. Finish with a translucent or sheer powder to blend it all together.
Lip liner’s duty is to keep your lipstick in place. If you skip the liner, your lip color is more likely to bleed into the fine, feathery lines that naturally form around the lip area as you age. To keep lipstick in place, line the outside of your lips in the same color as your lipstick or the same shade of your lips, then fill in your lips with the same liner or a lip primer. To treat and conceal any rough, dry patches on on your puckers, try a creamy lip liner or moisturizing primer.
There’s nothing wrong with giving your beauty routine a helping hand! While applying a moisturizing primer can help produce a smoother finish, you may want to consider radio frequency-based anti-aging treatments to help smoothen out wrinkles and brighten your skin. The most effective and comfortable treatments are ones that use a combination of Multi-Polar Radio Frequency and Pulsed Electro Magnetic Fields to safely deliver energy below the skin’s surface. The energy turns into heat in the skin’s tissue and prompts a natural healing process, which works to increase collagen production. The result is firmer, smoother, more youthful-looking skin without any pain or downtime.
