Right now on the newstand the models on the cover of three top magazines are over 40– Julia Roberts in Elle and the two Jennifers, Aniston and Lopez, in Glamour and Bazaar. Its not just that these women look great for 40. Ladies, this is what 40 can look like today.
And this is true despite the fact that 40’s are the start of true aging. Up to this time, beauty problems were pseudo-aging from external factors such as sun exposure, cigarettes, alcohol use, stress and diet. Now there is internal aging that affects how we look. Our skin is getting drier and losing the ability to hold onto moisture. Fat pads under the eyes are shrinking which can increase under-eye shadows. As the circulation starts to slow down, there is a decline in natural radiance. Smile lines appear when you are not smiling and squint lines frame the eye when its not sunny.
