Anti-Aging Tips: Staying Young While Also Broke

Want to look 20 when you’re 40 and spend like you’re a broke college student while doing so? Then look no further!

If you were one of the millions of people watching the most recent 2020 Super Bowl, you probably saw the halftime show. Between commercials for chips, cars, and that weird one about a peanut’s funeral, you probably also saw the halftime show with Shakira and J.Lo too. And, if you’re anything like us, you probably cried into your chicken wings, lamenting on the fact that these women still look INCREDIBLE at their age, while you can barely keep it together.

    This cleanser – which you use twice a day (at morning and at night) – is literally a juice cleanse for your face! And it even has some of the same ingredients.

    This is a super lightweight cream that smells AMAZING, and we can’t get enough of. And, even better, it’s 24-hours! This means that you won’t have to reapply throughout the day for your skin to feel refreshed, hydrated, and bright. Because of this, it’s really great for skin that needs a little pick-me-up in terms of dryness, especially during the winter. Using this moisturizer (which, we’ll say again, smells AMAZING) will leave your skin petal soft (get it!? Since it’s rose!?), and is proven by users to keep skin supple and smooth.

While these anti-aging won’t set your skin back 30 years, we’ve definitely noticed a difference in our skin since using these products. Treating your skin with anti-aging products before it even begins to show wrinkles is also one of the best ways to keep them from appearing too. Also make sure you use sun screen whenever you can. The sun can be rough on our skin, and is proven to lead to more wrinkles, as well as burns and even skin cancer. Treat your skin right, and it will last you a lifetime.

So, whether you’re 22 or 82, these awesome products will help you feel and look your best without breaking your bank. It may not turn you into Shakira, but it’ll definitely help you with keeping your skin looking almost as youthful! We only wish that there was similar stuff to make our bodies look the same!
