3 Signs Your Skin Is Ageing Faster Than You

The only thing worse than growing up is ageing. The two may sound similar but are poles apart on practical grounds. But how do you know your skin is ageing? We don’t have a birthday to remind us of that. But one can look out for these signs to point out skin ageing before it’s too late.

  1. Expression Lines

These usually are the first to noticeable signs appear. The expression lines include super fine wrinkles at the corner of your eyes, near your mouth and on your forehead.article-2288444-1873986C000005DC-774_306x357

 

  1. Turkey Neck

The skin starts to lose its tautness and becomes less firm resulting in a dull, rough and dry skin. This is visible especially around the neck area.skin-age-mistakes-400x400

 

  1. Spots

Spots or discolored skin is also a clear giveaway. The loss of collagen results in thinner skin and moreover fine and delicate skin.webmd_rf_photo_of_age_spots_on_face

 

Raise your hands if you can relate to the signs mentioned above. It’s okay, I’m typing with my toes right now. What’s not okay is identifying the signals and sitting back.

Say hello to your new BFF, ladies! The L’Occitane Immortelle Divine Cream. The anti-ageing potion is enriched with organic microencapsulated immortelle essential oil and organic immortelle cells extract; all of which combine and combat skin ageing.

The Ultimate Lipstick Guide For All Lip Types

Recently, celebrity YouTuber Lilly Singh a.k.a. Superwoman launched her liquid lipcolor shade called ‘Bawse’ in collaboration with Smashbox. And I won’t be lying if I say, “I’m a unicorn”. But here’s the thing, Lilly’s red looks smashing on her and on me it’s straight up odd. Why? Because I possess surrealistic blade-thin lips!Smashbox

Enter, the lipstick guide. What I mean is that if a red doesn’t look good on you, a russet might. And if a russet doesn’t, beige might. Follow this guide to pick out the shade that goes best with your pout.

 

  1. Thin Lips

Most people with thin lips may already know this, but for those who don’t, dark colors shouldn’t really be your pick. Go for lighter and more natural shades of pink, beige and nudes. Start by lining your lip and then fill it in for a gorgeous and fuller look.thin lips

  1. Full Lips

Read, perfection. Sorry ladies, but I am totally J. Simply because while you discuss the latest crimson shade by YSL and Louboutin, I am here retouching my clear gloss. But no hard feeling y’all! Oh and, as if it’s news but you chicas can carry off pretty much every color but leave the nudes for the rest. Pretty please?scarlet johannsen

  1. Top Heavy Lips

You, woman, are the reason the ‘pout’ came into existence. You make the ‘duck face’ look effortless to the extent of seeming legit. And although, your pout is perfection, it’s okay to want to turn down the fullness at times. All you need is a darker and a slightly lighter shade of the same color. Fill in the fuller half with the darker shade and the lighter shade on your lower lip. Or you could just use a dark tone throughout and still look like a million bucks!Moroccanoil  "Inspired By Women" Campaign Celebration

  1. Bottom Heavy Lips

One word, ombré. You can totally rock that trick on your fuller half. Simply fill in your lips with the desired shade and dab some white make up pencil or nude eye shadow on to the center of your lower lip. Blend lightly for a magically balanced and gorgeous look. Or, as mentioned earlier, go for a single dark shade and rock it. Ombré is cooler though. Just saying.1lily-collins-ombre-lip

  1. Large Lips

Although totally kissable and unbelievably attractively, large lips can at time overshadow other facial features. Turn down your lip volume by wearing a soft matte color on the lip and highlight prominent features of your face – eyes, brows, and cheekbones, et al.kim-kardashian-01-600x800

  1. Small Lips

Adorable as they are, small lips sometimes deserve due attention. Bestow them with some spotlight by picking up lip colors that have some shimmer, shine or gloss. These not only highlight your lips but also add a good amount of fullness.small lips

Suggested: MAC Lipglass Viva Glam Ariana Grande; Dior Addict Milky Tint; Chanel Rouge Allure (Pimpante)dior gloss

 

Important as it is to know your lip shape well and shades that suit you, it is also a good idea to practice some of these tricks before taking ‘em out for a spin.
