Bobbi Brown's Top Tips for Youthful Skin

Treat yourself to facials Regular facials with an experienced esthetician are ideal for making your face look and feel younger quickly. The menu of services is vast: advanced technology treatments employing LED lights lessen wrinkles and plump skin; microdermabrasion removes dead cells to soften and brighten skin; a simple cleanse and massage “will increase blood flow and oxygenation to the face for a vibrant glow,” Brown says. The reality is  that  these services don’t come cheap, and heading to the spa daily isn’t feasible. But you can be kind to your skin (and wallet) in between appointments with at-home facial massages. To do, wake up your face by lightly fluttering your fingers on your skin), then massage with a cream or oil by starting at the center of your face moving upwards, using overlapping strokes; repeat ten times.

Get enough sleep “Wow, you look tired!” is never something you want to hear. When you’re exhausted, it shows—especially on your skin by way of dark under-eye circles eyes, dullness, breakouts, and a loss of focus and energy. To feel and look well rested, aim to get around seven to nine hours of sleep a night. If you’re not a great sleeper or have trouble nodding off at bedtime, Brown suggests taking one dose of melatonin an hour before hitting the hay. (Be sure to check with your doctor to see if this supplement is right for you.)
