For the most part, no one likes to think about getting older, despite knowing deep down that sooner or later crow’s feet will start to appear and your laughter lines will get deeper. The fact is that aging is a fact of life; you can’t stop it – you may be able to slow it down, but you can’t stop aging indefinitely. Instead of fearing the aging process, embrace it – take care of your skin, and you will feel better about getting older, that’s a promise!
To give you a heads up about what comes with aging, below is a guide to three things that no one tells you about aging.
- Your foundation will settle in your laughter lines
Don’t call them wrinkles, always refer to them as laughter lines – it sounds better and will make you feel better. As you get older and your laughter lines deepen – this process begins in your mid to late twenties. Because of this, you may notice that your foundation begins to settle into your laughter lines, making them more visible, which isn’t what you want. The answer is to start the day with a moisturizer that contains collagen and elastin, to tighten your skin and help smooth out any lines. It’s also worth using a primer before applying your makeup so that your face has a smooth base – priming products fill in your laughter lines to give foundation a smooth base to be applied to.
- Beauty treatments will become your best friend
As you get older, beauty treatments will become your best friend. In your twenties, you may not choose to invest in beauty treatments all that often, but by the time you reach your mid-thirties, you will no doubt be investing in these on a regular basis. Whether you choose to have microdermabrasion, dermal fillers, facelift treatment – you can learn more about a facelift procedure by reading up online – or a chemical peel, you will find that undergoing regular beauty treatments will help to make you feel better about getting older. As many as 45% of women admit to undergoing some form of anti-aging beauty treatment, as a way of helping them to feel better about the aging process.
- You will need to exfoliate more often
The fact is that as we get older, our skin does too, and with age, the way that your skin works, changes. In your teenage years and early twenties, your skin sheds cells on a regular basis, which is why your skin looks so bright and clear. However, as your skin gets older, it takes the cells longer to shed naturally, which is why it’s recommended that you exfoliate at least twice a week to help speed up the skin regeneration process.
There you have it, three things that nobody tells you about getting older and the impact that aging will have on your beauty regime. The fact is that no one wants to get older, but it is a part of life, which is why it’s so important to embrace it and learn to love your skin, regardless of your laughter lines.
