No single word in the dictionary scares women more than the dreaded three letter word that is age. From fine wrinkles creeping in on the corners of the mouth to once plump lips now resembling prune-like qualities, at some point or another we all have to come to terms with dealing with the onset of maturing skin. While a little nip-tuck here and there may seem like the only solution, ladies, let us tell you, it is not.
When dealing with the signs of aging, you must realize that the trick to looking good no matter what age is to highlight your assets and conceal your flaws. First of all, put the magnifying mirror away—life doesn’t happen in zoom so things that aren’t noticeable to the naked eye shouldn’t be a problem.
Second, establish a solid skincare routine. For women as young as 25, head to your nearest department store and start shopping for a good line of anti-aging products to stop symptoms before they come. For those in their 30’s, 40’s and beyond, moisturizer is your best friend. While you might have hated your oily skin in your younger years, it will actually prove beneficial to your skin’s elasticity in the long run. And remember whether you are sixteen or sixty, skipping sunscreen should never be an option.
Third, employing the right kind of makeup techniques will take years off your actual age. After all, makeup is the best and, not to mention, fastest non-invasive anti-ager out there. To help you learn more about how to work with what you have, we enlisted the help of Manila’s top makeup artists to pick their brains on the best makeup tips they have for treating mature skin.
