1. Nutrition Matters
We all know that in order for our skin to maintain its healthy glow as we get older, we need to treat it with love and care. But that doesn’t just hold true for skin products, what we eat matters as well. Maintaining a healthy diet can help ward off wrinkles, according to a report in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition. They found that participants who ate plenty of healthy foods – including green leafy vegetables, nuts, olive oil, beans, and multi-grain breads – were less likely to develop wrinkles than participants who maintained diets high in butter, red meat, and sugar.
2. Skip Shimmer
There’s a reason why most older women shy away from shimmery eye shadows, and it doesn’t have anything to do with it being “too young” for them. On the contrary, sparkles can actually accentuate any wrinkles you might have, and make you look even older! Opt for wearing a nice liner on your top lid and a bit of mascara. Give the shimmer to your daughters or granddaughters.

4. Lighten the Foundation
Not many women know that heavy foundation can actually highlight facial wrinkles! How horrible is that? Say bye-bye to the extreme makeup, and start using a tinted moisturizer instead. Not everyone can separate from their foundation, so we have a better strategy. Mix equal parts foundation and moisturizer to get the best of both worlds.
5. Wipe Yourself
After a long night, the last thing you want to worry about is washing your face. You just want to drop right onto your bed, and catch some beauty sleep. But if you leave makeup on your face, the sleep will be anything but beautiful! If you’re one of those people who constantly leaves makeup on her face before she snoozes, keep some baby wipes near your bed and use them before you hit the hay. They make such a difference.
