Aging is inevitable, but looking aged is not! You can look age-appropriate, but still fresh and vibrant with some beauty and lifestyle tips in order to look younger. Here are some ways to keep the noticeable signs of aging at bay without truing to surgery.
Smooth it out
A good at-home skincare regimen is essential. Be sure to include a product with RETINOL at night to slough off dead skin cells, prevent wrinkles and breakouts. Also wear SUNSCREEN every single day, even in the winter and in the Pacific Northwest rain. Since everyone’s skin concerns are so individual, it’s best to meet with an ESTHETICIAN for personalized recommendations.

Soften it up
Most of us have spend years finding the style and color that we feel comfortable with. However, as the decades progress, so should our look.
To freshen up your style, try adding BANGS or a LIGHTER COLOR and aim for VOLUME. Darker shades accentuate lines and dark circles under the eyes. A hairstylist can add a few subtle highlights within your hair color family to brighten up you hair and face. Added volume will help create a lifted look.

Go light and short
Reserve the brights for your pedicure. On most women, a short to medium length nail in a light, NEUTRAL COLOR looks the most flattering. Consult a NAIL TECHNICIAN to decide which color best matches your skin tone. If your nails tend to break and/or chip a lot, try a SHELLAC MANICURE. It still gives a natural look but lasts longer than regular nail polish.

Blend, blend, blend
Extremes are not flattering when it comes to looking young and fresh. Toss the thick eyeliner pencil, bright matte lipstick and dark bronzer. Achieve a natural yet youthful look by minimizing harsh contrast. Select a LIGHT PINK LIP SHADE that provides a little gloss, and find a BRONZER that is only a shade or two darker that your foundation. Also, as we age, skin tends to take on a gray tone. So, make sure your foundation has warm undertones and leaves you with A DEWY, not powdered, finish.
