Many women tell me that they love being older. They love their families, their life’s experiences and the knowledge they have gained through the years. Many women embrace their age and few want to be or look like young women. Most older women (like me) just want to look as good as they can, without large expense and, preferably, without surgery.
So what are some of the ways the face changes with age? Structurally, fat redistributes in the face shifting the weight from the eyes, cheek bones and temples to the lower face. Secondly, wrinkles develop over time from contraction of facial muscles, and from degeneration of skin elements, made worse by sun exposure. Lastly, changes in cartilage and the tissues supporting them can lead to droopy earlobes.
While we all can continue to celebrate our age, below are a few things we can do, or have done, to give our face a more youthful appearance.
Keeping your skin healthy and youthful can be relatively easy and fun. You can age gracefully.
Have a great day and I hope you continue to “Look Fresh and Feel Confident”!
