5 Ways to Look Younger in Just 10 Minutes

There are plenty of reasons why getting older is fantastic—greater confidence, lifelong friends, a bigger closet—but actually looking your age isn’t one of them. Luckily, the right products can ensure that you’re still getting carded well into your 30s and 40s.

Switch Cleansers

They’re not called “age spots” for nothing. Hyperpigmentation is the result of sun damage and, you guessed it, aging. To lessen dark marks, try a daily wash like DDF®’s Brightening Cleanser, which uses natural brighteners like licorice extract, as well as exfoliating glycolic and salicylic acids.


Ditch the Powder

Powder is no friend to aging skin because it can settle into fine lines or enlarged pores. Instead, opt for a liquid foundation or tinted moisturizer, which will give you coverage without caking. Look for a formula that is designed to keep skin healthy. per-fékt Beauty Skin Perfection Gel is a multi-tasking formula that’s easy to blend and sweat-resistant, plus loaded with vitamins. To control shine, use blotting papers like boscia’s Green Tea Blotting Linens.


Calming Cream

Eye cream restores moisture to your eye area, making fine lines and wrinkles less noticeable. We’re big fans of Osmotics Cosmeceuticals Eye Surgery Under Eye Rejuvenator since it quickly calms down the inflammation that causes dark circles. Also, anything with caffeine, like BareMinerals® Firming Eye Treatment, does the trick in a jiff.


Shed Your Layers

As we age, our once-fresh complexion can start to look a little sallow. To combat this, renew your commitment to your facial exfoliator—twice weekly, no excuses—and don’t forget the skin below your neck! Add a gritty scrub like dirt. body scrub into your shower routine once or twice a week. Follow up with a light-reflecting moisturizer like Nuxe Huile Prodigieuse® Multi-Usage Dry Oil Shimmer for gorgeous, glowing skin all over.
