Try using neck stretches and good posture for a great looking neck. A healthy neck is as important as a healthy face.

Over time the tendons in the neck shrink and the thin skin does not respond in the same way as the skin of the face does to peels and lasers.
Eyeshadows can be tricky for eyes over 40. Metallic, glittery shadows are beautiful, but eyelid skin develops tiny folds which are, unfortunately, accentuated by those gorgeous metallic colors. On the other hand, some matte shadows look too flat and dry, and do not flatter the eye either. Instead, look for shadows that are neither matte nor metallic: “quietly lustrous” should be the goal.
Guacamole with avocado is a delicious treat, but are you aware of its amazing softening properties to your skin? Use a fork to mash an avocado on a plate. Cover your whole body in this, leave it on about 20 minutes, then rinse it off. Your skin will become moisturized and softened.
