Once you get past the age of twenty-five, it’s always nice to have people think you are younger than your actual age. The best way to look younger is to make sure you take care of yourself. Pay attention to what you eat, exercise, and use proper age prevention methods. Some of the biggest giveaways of aging are fine lines and wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Here are some tips to take years off your face!

Smooth Fine Lines. To smooth fine lines at home, one of the fastest ways to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles is to use a retinol (such as Retin-A). Retinols accelerate cell production so that your skin looks smoother, and helps to treat acne. This is why most doctors recommend retinols to help with anti-aging. One disadvantage to using retinols is that it may cause dryness and flaking if you have sensitive skin. That is why we recommend a hydrating moisturizer especially formulated for use with retinols such as the Vivité Replenish Hydrating Cream.

For a professional solution, most doctors recommend Botox for fine lines and wrinkles caused by repeated muscle activity. It is still the most popular method to get rid of fine lines and wrinkles on the forehead and around the eyes! However, if you have deeper lines and wrinkles, on the lower face, especially around the mouth and nose, you need a facial filler such as Juvederm or Radiesse. The best way to determine your exact needs would be to visit your facial plastic surgeon.

Even Out Your Skin Tone. Years spent in the sun playing, tanning, or working will start to show on your face when you get older. Uneven skin tone is a tell-tale sign that you are getting older. A great fix is the Vivité Vibrance Therapy! Vibrance therapy is a restorative, antioxidant rich cream specially formulated for the face to help create the appearance of a brighter and more even skin tone.

For a more professional solution, look into an in-office chemical peel administered by a physician or a laser treatment. A glycolic peel is a very safe and effective treatment that can help to smooth your skin and improve your skin’s texture with a very short recovery time (usually around a day or two).

Use a Primer Before You Apply Your Makeup. A primer will help smooth out your skin and fill in fine lines and wrinkles. It will also help your makeup stay smooth and not settle in all of your wrinkles and creases by the end of the day. There are also many other benefits or primers depending on which kind you buy. They can help decrease breakouts, even out your skin tone, and lessen dryness.
