Having a youthful appearance, is not all about having great looking skin and no wrinkles. Of course, using sunscreen faithfully (I love Colorscience), getting lots of beauty rest, reducing stress, eating a healthy diet full of colourful food, and a properly formulated daily skin care routine gives your skin a great boost. But when it comes to predicting how well you will age, here are the top three facial features that truly matter:
1. Additional weight on your face. If you are someone that carries some extra weight on your face then you’re in luck. Plumpness is essential for maintaining a youthful appearance. Take a look at your photos. When you were 5-10 pounds heavier you will notice your face looks younger. Losing weight makes you look older! This explains why dermal fillers are becoming so popular. These natural sugars can be injected into the lips, cheeks, and jawline to prevent a hollow, sunken look and take years off your face.
2. Tight neckline. Your neckline is one of the first areas to show your true age. We are really good about our sunscreen and anti-aging creams for our face, but sadly the neck is frequently forgotten. Using skin-firming serums on your neckline can go a long way to getting rid of that “turkey neck”. In the past, the neckline was unable to be treated with fillers, but a new “nutrient filler” has shown promising results in firming this area. These microinjections of vitamins, minerals and amino acids help to restore elasticity and tone.
3. High cheekbones. With age, jowls and other features start to droop making you look older. Great bone structure provides the much-needed support to hold everything up. Not blessed with Hepburn cheekbones? Natural hyaluronic acid fillers can add volume to your cheeks creating lift and recontours your face.
