How Well Will You Age?
Wrinkles aren't the only indicators of age—here are more ways your face reveals your true birthday
Among the chief giveaways of older age is dull and unevenly pigmented skin—a fact that Hollywood is well aware of (makeup artists will paint liver-colored spots onto actors' complexions to make them appear older for roles). Other red flags are a slackened jawline, thinning lips and skin, drained color, an eroded brow bone, hooded eyelids, a droopy nose, and sparse brows, says Rodan.
"As you age, the outer half of your eyebrow loses its shape and definition, partly due to the natural aging process and partly from over-tweezing when you were younger," says Rouleau. The same thinning-hair phenomenon appears in lashes, as they become less pigmented and sparser with time.
Fortunately, for those who wish to conspire with youth, today's bag of tricks can mitigate these aging symptoms more effectively than ever before.
