Many women begin to notice that the hair that grows along their chin and upper lip grows much darker and coarser once they reach the age of 40. In order to avoid embarrassing facial hair situations, women over 40 may need to begin a facial wax regiment to keep their face hair-free. There are many facial wax products on the market today, including heat-free wax strips that can be applied in any area along your face. You simply apply the wax strip to the area with unwanted facial hair, then pull the strip rapidly in the opposite direction of growth. This quick motion should remove all of the hair in the area, or at least the majority of the hair. Then, you can go along the area with tweezers to remove any remaining or stubborn whiskers that are remaining in the area.
Another important beauty tip is to begin an eye skincare routine. Women over 40 start to notice drooping and sagging in the skin around their eyes. An important thing to remember is that the skin around the eyes is very sensitive. You shouldn’t yank or pull on the skin around your eyes for any reason. You should start using an eye serum on the skin around your eyes, as it can minimize drooping, sagging, and visible lines in the delicate skin around the eyes. Also, if you were waxing your eyebrows, it may be time to lighten up on yanking the skin around your eyes and eyebrows. As women age, they lose a great deal of the elasticity in the skin around the eyes, and on the remainder of their face. Once the elasticity starts to fade, pulling on the skin will cause the definite look of lines and wrinkles to be highly visible on the facial skin.
