9 Easy Ways to Look Younger, According to Dermatologists
Who knew strawberries were a natural collagen booster?
We asked experts like dermatologists, nutritionists and makeup artists for their secrets to younger-looking skin, voluminous hair, eating well and more so you can look and feel your best for years to come.
1. Skip the Cream Foundation
As you age, your hormone levels drop and your skin gets drier. While you may want to try a cream foundation, don't; "Thicker, creamier formulas are usually made to provide full coverage, which means they're packed with more pigment and loads of chemicals", says Portland-based makeup artist Jessie Powers. "And pigment is basically chemical powder." If you like a heavy coverage, try it with a richer face moisturizer or a hydrating primer.
2. Choose Gentle Makeup Remover
You might be excited to take off your makeup and hop in bed, but take your time with the removal process. "That constant tugging and pulling at the delicate skin around the eye increases sagging and, as a result, can look darker than the skin around it," says Paula Begoun, founder of the skincare line Paula's Choice. "Pulling as little as possible around the eyes can make a big difference over time." Consider using a cleansing oil or balm to remove mascara and eyeshadow with minimal tugging.
3. Celebrate (and protect) your grays.
Say it with us: Gray is beautiful! More specifically, vibrant gray hair is beautiful. “Yellowing gray hair is as bad as yellowing teeth,” says Howse. Prevent your silver hair from dulling with products that contain shine enhancers and UV filters. If your hair is more than 50% gray, use a shampoo with blue or violet undertones to neutralize yellow. But if your hair is 100% white, dyeing it light blonde is your best bet.
4. Consider Lightening your hair
Dark hair against a light scalp can make thinning even more visible. It also casts shadows on your skin so wrinkles look more pronounced, says Gary Howse, creative director of the Gary Manuel salons in Seattle. If you go two to three shades lighter with permanent color or highlights around your face, it’ll make all the difference, says colorist Sharon Dorram of Sharon Dorram Color at Sally Hershberger in New York City.
5. Have more sex.
Yes. You read that right. Some research suggests that having sex frequently could help you live longer. And as one 43-year-old woman named Emily shared with us, “Whenever people ask me how I look so young, I always answer ‘sex and yoga.’”
6. Load up on Vitamin-C packed fruits and veggies.
Vitamin C naturally boosts your body’s collagen, which helps keep your skin firm and youthful-looking, says Jaclyn London, M.S., R.D., C.D.N. Stick with bell peppers and strawberries, among others, to give you that youthful glow.
7. Take healthy fatty foods.
Take healthy fatty foods like salmon. "The fish's high amounts of omega-3 fatty acids help reduce inflammation, which can affect how skin looks," explains Tamara Melton, M.S., R.D.N., L.D. Nutrients like vitamin D and antioxidants can also reduce the risk of skin cancer and help with acne and rosacea, adds Lauren Ploch, M.D., M.Ed., FAAD, a New Orleans-based dermatologist.
8. Go wild for mangoes.
They are loaded with beta-carotene, says London, which helps your skin repair itself, stay smooth, and even delay the appearance of wrinkles. When it’s not their season, reach for winter squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, cantaloupe, and apricots for the same effects.
9. Protect Your Neck from Signs of Aging
As a 50-year-old woman, I had anticipated eyelid droop. I had anticipated crow’s feet and forehead lines. (Anticipated and eradicated with Botox Cosmetic, thank you very much.)
However, as a person who takes pretty meticulous care of my complexion, not just with injectables but with sunscreen and other skin-saving products, I did not expect to wake up to find that my prized part — my long, lean and evenly pigmented neck — had aged seemingly 20 years overnight.
Is the computer to blame for our nation's current saggy neck crisis?
The simple act of looking down at a device can add anywhere between 10-60 pounds of weight on the delicate neck area. This, coupled with factors like collagen loss and the thin texture of the skin surrounding the neck area, makes the neck more vulnerable to premature signs of aging.
Furthermore, the platysma — two plate-like muscles which run up the sides of the neck — is prone to sagging and susceptible to the effects of gravity. “Dermatologists are seeing an uptick in aesthetic concerns from our patients because, as we work from home, many of us are staring at ourselves all day long on video calls.
As a result, we are not only more conscious of our physical appearance, but the action of looking down at our phone or computer can also exacerbate 'tech neck,' which in addition to the musculoskeletal issues, is characterized by skin laxity and sagging and deepening of the horizontal neck lines,” says Shari Marchbein, M.D.
Ladies, do you have a neck care routine?
Address loss of elasticity and firmness to redefine youthful neck contours. This potent formula with a natural-source multi-peptides mimics the venom mechanism to 'freeze' saggy muscles diminishing the appearance of neck lines and wrinkles.

Returns 10 years back to me!-Vicki, International Grey-Hair Model
I've tried several neck creams and this is the one that worked best for me! I literally feel like my neck lost 10 years! Look at my face and my neck and you could easily tell the difference!
Finished the first balm and will definitely buying it again-Karen, Customer
I have tried a few different neck creams but nothing seemed to help with the tech lines on my neck. I was skeptical to try Lanveur but decided to give it a try after seeing several facebook videos recommending it for tech lines. I just finished the first balm and I am definitely buying it again. My neck looks smoother and my tech lines are reduced (not completely gone but I didn't expect them to disappear anyway). I apply this day and night and notice a difference in my neck when I don't apply it for a day or so. I hope it can make my tech lines gone but I am happy with what it does already.
Visible Change!- Kathy, Beauty Insider
When I use this twice daily, I see significant improvement of the “tech neck” wrinkles in my neck, as well as wrinkles on my cleavage (from sleeping on my side). When I stop using it for more than a few days, the appearance of the wrinkles slowly creeps back up. Excellent product that actually made a difference.
