Beauty without Botox

I think it is safe to say that we all want to capture our youthful appearance as long as possible. That isn’t to say that looks are everything. They most certainly aren’t. But there is nothing wrong with wanting to present a beautiful and smiling visage to the world.

Embrace Change

As we age, our skin loses its elasticity, color, and shape. Not only is this normal, it is perfectly natural. Embrace those changes as they come and adapt to them in ways you feel

One adaptation could be reimagining your make-up. It’s easy to fall into a habit after years of applying mascara and lipstick. Consider trying something new and unexpected to mix things up. An aesthetician can give advice about trends or techniques that could add something novel and fresh to your look.

Hair Style

Many people color their hair to hide grays. Graying hair isn’t the only change you might notice. You may find that your hair will begin to stop growing at a certain length. This is a blessing in disguise. Shorter hairstyles like lobs can frame your face without lengthening it. Talk to your hairstylist about what will work best for you.

Eyebrows Are Important

Don’t forget the hair right above your eyes! Just as a new hairstyle can revitalize your look, so, too, can a new eyebrow style. Resist the urge to pluck any grays you might see appearing in your eyebrows. In fact, don’t over pluck them at all. Eyebrows naturally thin as we age so keeping them thick and lush will help you to look youthful. Plus, good news; lush brows are very on-trend!

Care for Your Beautiful Skin

The time to pamper your skin is now. There have been substantial advancements over the years in skincare that will help improve elasticity and radiance in your skin. Look for products with jojoba or rose oil and natural AHAs. Exfoliate two or three times a week to remove dead skin cells that can cause a dulling affect to the skin.


I’ll never stop singing the praises of drinking enough water. Sure, it isn’t new advice, but it is often repeated because it is so good for you. Being well hydrated has a host of health benefits, not least of which are the positive ways in which it helps your beautiful skin stay toned and firm.
