1. Use a Zip Halo

Use a Zip Halo device (or similar) every night before bed.

It only takes 4 minutes to help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

It has helped brighten my complexion and lessen my crows feet around the eyes and my smile lines.

I’ve been using this device for a few weeks now. Check out the results in my before/after photos:

Another cool aspect of the Zip Halo is that you can use the app to create a treatment plan to stay on track with your beauty goals.

2. Sleep on a silk pillowcase

A silk pillowcase is softer on the skin, will help reduce fine lines and wrinkles and even helps prevent bed head.

3. Use a whitening tooth stain

There’s nothing more youthful than waking up with a white and bright smile. After brushing your teeth, use a whitening tooth stain.

4. Choose a dark lip shade

Wear a berry (or dark-medium) lip shade as opposed to nude. The darker color will make your teeth appear whiter.

Also, here’s a bonus tip–always use a lip liner! It will help the lip color stay on. If you apply the liner first, it will give the appearance of fuller lips without getting filler.

Add a dollop of gloss at the center of your lips for a youthful, finishing touch.

5. Always fill in your eyebrows

Our eyebrows are one of the earlier places that tend to age us.

Here’s a photo of me with a filled in brow and a natural brow and you can definitely see the difference:

Filing in your brows will lift and frame your face.

On top of the brow pencil, I like to apply a brow treatment that helps lift the hairs and actually create new ones to make the brow look thicker.

6. Use a hair mask

I’ve been using a hair mask for years and it leaves my hair feeling nourished and soft.

I use it every Sunday on my pampering day. Having a self-care day is another bonus tip to help you feel youthful and healthy.

7. Use a tanning lotion

For glowing skin, apply a tanning lotion.

For an even tanner look, add a few drops of tan drops mixed in the lotion, twice a week.

The resulting, bronze glow will help your skin appear youthful and beautiful.

8. Use brow highlighter in the inner corner of your eyes

Even on the days when I don’t put on a full face of makeup, I love to apply brow highlighter to the inner corners of my eyes. I also apply it underneath my brows.

9. Apply black liner to your upper waterlines

Applying black eyeliner to your upper, inner eyelids.

This blends your waterline with your eyelashes which will make your eyes pop.

For a night-time look, I also line the bottom lid with black liner.

10. Know how to stand in photos

To look taller and slimmer, stand at a slight angle toward the camera (not straight on). 

Posing for photo

Whether you’re posing by yourself or with a group, always tilt your body slightly to the side.

Then, take one of your legs (preferably your outer leg, if standing on the end with a group) and put it a little bit in front of your other leg.

Bend that knee a tad and point your toe in ever so slightly.

Also hold your chin level and then slightly down.

Open your eyes wide and look directly to the camera.

Finally, smile your brightest, happiest smile because happy women are beautiful!
