There are a lot of changes to adjust to as you get older. Your metabolism slows down， those dreaded gray hairs pop up， and hangovers become an all-day event. With a few simple tweaks to your beauty routine， you‘ll feel and look as fresh as you did when you were in college.
Wearing the wrong powder.
The whole point of dusting on powder is to decrease shine — but is the product highlighting your flaws？ Look for an HD formula： The microfine particles won‘t settle into fine lines， wrinkles， and enlarged pores.
Passing up primer.
Silicone-based primers are especially effective at smoothing out your complexion and filling in wrinkles and pores， so when you apply foundation on top， you‘ll look flawless — and your makeup will last much longer.
Dyeing hair all one color.
Visit a colorist and ask them about adding dimension to your color. Brighter layers will warm up your complexion and make you look more youthful.
Not exfoliating regularly.
Exfoliating is essential for all ages. Not only does it prevent bacteria from building up in pores and turning into acne， but shedding those old， dead layers triggers cellular turnover.
Not drinking water.
While regularly moisturizing goes a long way， you can give your skin a major boost by helping it glow from the inside out.
Rarely wearing sunscreen.
Even if it‘s not sunny outside， and even if it’s Winter， put it on. Sun damage happens instantly， and its the top cause of maturation on the skin.
Not using conditioner.
As you age， your hair gets drier and duller. Nourish it by applying conditioner several times a week.
Wearing too much black eyeliner.
It’s time to put away the liquid liner. That harsh hue is drawing attention to your crows‘ feet！ Consider a softer shade like charcoal or chocolate.
Forgetting SPF on chest and hands.
Bring sunscreen on down to your chest and hands. After your face， your hands are the body parts that get the most sun exposure — thus aging you — so protect them.
Failing to fill in your brows.
Years of overplucking generally age you. Look more youthful by faking fuller arches.
Still wearing the same blunt haircut
Lighter layers feel more of-the-moment without being too trendy.
Leaving your sunglasses at home
Wear a chic pair of sunglasses all year long！ By not squinting at sunlight， you‘ll be staving off crows’ feet.
Wearing glittery eye shadow
Stick to satin or silky matte shades.
Wearing mascara on your lower lashes.
Bold lower lashes can draw attention to your fine lines， under eye bags， and dark circles.
Skipping out on lip liner.
As you mature， fine lines form around your mouth. Line your pout.
