Anti-aging is a way of life, and it takes an ongoing commitment to garner real results. Skincare plays a pivotal role, but you can’t always expect to see improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration and other signs of aging overnight. With this said, it is possible to get your skin looking years younger in a flash (at least temporarily), so try these 5 easy anti-aging tips to turn back the clock fast.
#1 Reschedule Your MaskMasks are generally a nighttime task since they help you unwind at the end of the day. But wouldn’t it be great to share your dewy, radiant, post-mask skin with the world? Whether you do your mask in the morning before a big meeting or in the evening before a night on the town, this is a surefire way to help your skin look years younger.

#2 Skip the FoundationFoundation can get tricky as we get older. The wrong formula can settle into lines and wrinkles or leave an unnatural finish. Cosmetic technology has come a long way, and a primer plus a tinted moisturizer or BB/CC cream can give you the fresh, youthful look you’re after. Look for an anti-aging formula designed to prevent makeup from accumulating increases, and a tinted version provides a bit of extra coverage. Then, top with a lightweight product that helps even out skin tone while leaving skin with a dewy (not matte) finish.
#3 Forget the PowderYouthful skin has a radiant sheen, and powder eliminates any glow on contact. But if you just can’t part with this finishing touch, see #4 for alternatives that help set your makeup without leaving your skin flat and matte.
#4 Mist YourselfIf you’re not using a facial mist, you’re missing out. Great for refreshing your skin mid-day without messing up your makeup, a super-fine mist also lends a gorgeous glow. There are formulas available for every skin type, and a makeup setting mist is the perfect replacement for powder.
#5 ExfoliateDull, lackluster skin is usually the result of a buildup of dead skin cells. The easiest way to reveal a youthful, glowing complexion is to sweep away these cells, whether with a scrub, mask, skincare brush or at-home peel product. Follow with a hydrating serum to plump up fine lines and you’re good to go! (Just make sure you know your skin can tolerate the method of exfoliation you choose—you don’t want to have to cancel plans due to redness or irritation!)
Pssst… exfoliating is important for your face but also for your body! Adore Cosmetics’ brand ambassador, supermodel Erin Heatherton, told InStyle that one of her favorite products for her beauty regimen is this Calming Body Peeling Scrub.
