Forever Young….? Yuppp

Just browsing through the April issue of Allure and instantly noticed a trend! The whole issue is about age, ways to look younger, ways to fake your age, actresses who played parts in films that were WAY off from their real age…. Some pretty good stuff in here. But what I found interesting was this quick piece called “25 Ways to Look Younger–Instantly!” Many of the tricks are really simple.. no Botox here! Now given I’m only 22, I don’t know how much younger I want to look, but in a few years I’ll definitely want to remember these. Here are a few I found interesting and almost ridiculous, but who knows.. Check it–

#1 “the easiest way to take years off your face? three words: wear less makeup.” Agreed.

#5 “get a pedicure at least once a month!” <– of course I love this one!!

#8 “spritz on a grapefruit fragrance… women who wear them are perceived to be ten years younger. seriously” … Hmm, maybe when the perceiver is blind folded?

#16 “wear nail polish or a ring. researchers have found that doing so makes your hands look younger.” Any excuse to paint my nails… but I neverrrr wear rings.

#20 “go to bed an hour earlier. you’ll reduce dark circles, perk up sallow skin and improve your mood.” I really need to start doing this… maybe after college!

#23 “have more sex. doing it three times a week makes women look up to ten years younger.” sure, why not?

One of my personal favorites who has definitely mastered the art of fighting age, which you should know by now, is Jennifer Aniston. There is a lot of gossip over whether she has had plastic surgery or not, and frankly, I don’t think it matters. She eats well, she exercises and she even used a few of Allure’s look-younger tips….

Jen looks even hotter now in her 40s than she did in her 20s….. Maybe because she used tip #3 “whiten your teeth,” #6 “add highlights to your hair,” #19 “warm up your make up,” and #22 “switch from lipstick to soft pink or rose gloss.”

5 beauty products I swear by…

They say beauty is skin deep, but I say we weren’t given lashes, nails, lips and cute butts for nothing…. play up your feminine side with some of these products that have won my approval and landed a spot in my heart and my make up bag:

1. OPI ConquistAdorable Nail Color
I’m wearing this on my toes right now for my upcoming trip to the Bahamas!

2. Almay Moisturizing Eye Makeup Remover Pads with Aloe, Cucumber & Green Tea
I’ve been using one of these each night before bed for more than 5 years, they moisturize your eyes while removing make up, no greasy feeling or messy liquids!

3. Laura Mercier Oil Free Flawless Face Kit
Forget Bare Minerals, this amazing kit gives you everything you need for a fresh and flawless make up routine at the same cost! I discovered this 6 months ago and never went back!

4. Covergirl Lash Blast Mascara
This gem can be found at any drug store! So stop paying for overpriced mascara, this one has the perfect wand for thick long lashes, no clumping and comes in water-proof or luxe edition that has a little shimmer for easy glam!

5. Nivea Sun-Kissed Firming Moisturizer
This gradual tanner is complete with Ginkgo Extract to firm up any part of your body you put it on! The beauty is that this is an already wonderful moisturizer that has been enhanced with a subtle tanner to give you that summer glow all year round!

Trust me, you will find each and every one of these products on my bureau as we speak, now if I could just stop using them up so fast!! I hope you find some love for one or more of them………..XOXO Love, Me
