5 Easy Ways To Take Years Off Your Appearance

While there’s no guaranteed way to look 30 forever, there are ways to fake it. Take years off your appearance with tips from the experts.

1. FILL IN BROWS

If your eyebrows have thinned out, look into microblading, the semi-permanent tattoo technique beauty experts swear by, including celebrity esthetician Piret Aava. She’s known as the “Eyebrow Doctor” who works in New York City and Miami. “As you get older, you start losing brow hairs. We can enhance them,” Aava says. “My goal is to not make them look like you’re wearing makeup but to make them natural enough that when you wake up in the morning you look normal.” (From $1,500; eyebrowdoctor.com)

2. BATTLE DROOPING EARLOBES

After years of wearing heavy earrings, your ears may hang low. Fix their droopy appearance with an ear lift—but not a surgical one. Levears earrings offer an instant lift by elevating the part of your ear above the pierced hole. The jewelry’s innovative design treats current issues and prevents further sagging.

3. GiVE YOURSELF A FACELIFT

No need to panic when fine lines and wrinkles start appearing on the face. Skin naturally thins, loses elasticity and dries out over time. Slow down the process with XO8 Cosmeceuticals and its award-winning products like the XO8 Placenta Stem Cell Mask and the XO8 Placenta Stem Cell Lip Mask, which firm, hydrate and brighten skin while promoting collagen production. The brand coins its products as “liquid botox.” “People are often shocked by the ‘ovine sheep placenta stem cell’ ingredient inside the mask, but I can assure you it’s a passing thought once you have the mask on your face because of the other 14-plus active ingredients playing a part in supporting your skin’s health,” says Rose Laudisio, founder & CEO of XO8 Cosmeceuticals.

4. GO A SHADE LIGHTER

When gray hair arrives, consider lightening your base one or two shades. “The addition of a little Balayage color, especially to frame the face, will provide enough of an optical illusion so that the grays will appear less evident,” suggests celebrity hairstylist Paul Labrecque of Paul Labrecque Salon and Spa in Palm Beach. Labrecque also recommends a layered, textured bob with one rule: keep the line of the bob under the jaw. “Don’t ever place the line on the jaw since this would have the opposite effect, only adding weight to the face.” (paullabrecque.com)

5. SLIM DOWN

Weight gain is a common tribulation of aging. Eliminate unwanted body fat without going under the needle through a process like SculpSure, a non-surgical body contouring treatment. “Using light-based technology, SculpSure precisely targets fat cells under the skin by raising the temperature of body fat to disrupt and destroy these cells, which are then naturally eliminated over time and do not return,” says Dr. Ferdinand Cabrera, based in Wilton Manors. The treatment is ideal for candidates who have stubborn areas of fat in the stomach, hips, back, and inner and outer thigh regions—areas that at times can be resistant to diet and exercise.
