It’s no wonder that so many women fear ageing. When a man ages he becomes a ‘silver fox’, whereas at our first appearance of grey hair or wrinkles we are deemed as ‘old’ or ‘haggard’. Unfortunately, it does just seem to be in our genetics that us girls age quicker than our male counterparts. If you’re happy to rock what nature gave you and grow old gracefully, then we fully support you! But if you’re in need of a bit of a confidence boost when it comes to your ageing face, take a look at the ideas below…
We’ll jump right in there with the big one: going under the knife. Of course, there are a lot of risks to be aware of. However, with plenty of renowned surgeons worldwide, it’s easier than it’s ever been to find the right doctor for you. Make sure you research your potential procedure and click the link for more information on how the process works. It might not be for everyone, but if you want a lasting result, plastic surgery could be the right option for you.
Want guaranteed physical results but don’t fancy going under the knife? Cosmetic procedures are, for many people, a comfortable hybrid between surgery and dermatology. Dermal fillers are popular, where filler is injected into the face which helps to minimise the appearance of wrinkles. Chemical peels are also a common treatment, as they can also help reduce scarring and sun damage.
Zany new treatments have been a big hit with celebrities in recent years. Kim Kardashian is said to be a fan of the Vampire Facial, which involves taking blood from the patient’s arm and then injecting it into the face. Unfortunately, it doesn’t come cheap, with most practitioners charging up to £600 a session. However, many people are turning to natural ways to improve their look. Rubbing sugar on your face is said to mimic the effects of microdermabrasion, and putting cinnamon powder on your lips can apparently give you a plumper pout.
If your budget is set a little lower, you can always try reverting back to trusty makeup. It won’t solve any long-term problems, but it is less intense than cosmetic procedures. Up your skincare regime and invest in some good quality foundation and highlighter. If you have beautiful eyes or lips, accentuate these in your makeup routine to draw attention away from any lines or wrinkles.
Sometimes all you need to inject some life back into your look is a wardrobe update. If you have some cash to spare, go designer. Classic designers such as Vivienne Westwood always excel in providing cool yet demure clothing for the mature women. If not, the high street is full of great options for women of all ages. Zara, Topshop and Mango all know how to produce elegant clothing for every occasion.
