Look younger with these beauty tips

1


Be sun smart every day.

You've heard it before, but we're going to remind you again: Sun protection is the most important thing you can do for your skin. Put on sunscreen every day (even when it's cloudy), wear sunglasses, and if you're going to be outside in the sun for long periods, wear a hat.

2Exfoliate weekly.

This essential step sloughs away dead skin that can clog pores and give your complexion a dull, tired look. The result: smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin.

3

Try a luminizing foundation.

The light-reflecting particles typically found in luminizing products boost brightness and give skin a dewy finish and subtle glow.

4

Go for a faux glow.

Use a moisturizer with self-tanner to give skin a gradual, slight glow, or simply dust a little bronzer onto your face to brighten your complexion.moisturizer for the best effects.

5

Use a serum to fight wrinkles

Use a serum.

Serums boast higher concentrations of active ingredients, maximumizing their hydration and healing properties. Wear a serum under moisturizer for the best effects.

6Switch to cream blush.

Powder can settle into fine lines, which only accentuates them. Instead, opt for a cream blush, which is typically sheer and easier to blend, giving your skin a much more natural-looking glow. You'll look like you've just come back from a brisk walk or, better yet, a quick romp with your man, rather than like you just applied blush.
