Fortunately, science knows that the futile, obsessive pursuit of never aging is something people are willing to spend a ton of money on, so researchers and designers continue to shell a bunch of money into new, innovative products used to prevent or “reverse” aging. Like these! More
In the age of both the Photoshop of Horrors and the gimmicky “no makeup” editorial, it’s pretty excellent to see someone come at this issue from just the right angle. Intelligent Life‘s Photoshop-free Cate Blanchett cover is everything such a cover shoot should be: gorgeous, honest, and not overly self-satisfied. More
Despite what this picture would lead you to believe, getting good preventative Botox in your 20′s (or early 30′s) requires more than just wearing some shimmery eye-shadow and flase eyelashes. We talked to dermatologist Stephen Bracci about why more people are getting Botox younger and how to have it done well.
You know when people get that weird “plastic surgery face” wherein you can’t really tell how old they are, but you assume they’re old enough to have visible signs of aging, hence the plastic surgery? More
Dovima With Peals, Richard Avedon.
I really like this picture, but it also makes me a bit sad. Dovima is my favorite model – mostly because she loved comic books, science fiction and was generally kind of a nerdy oddball. She was one of those people who seemingly had a glorious youth only to have an obscure end (she ended up working as a restaurant hostess). Of course, she might have been quite happy doing that. But still. Surely it must have been a bit difficult to go from capering in a ballgown among the elephants to telling people it was going to be a twenty minute wait. In this picture you can see the moles and crows feet and it’s clear that she’s no longer at the height of her beauty – but the expression on her face is still so priceless that you can see why Avedon would always consider her the greatest aristocratic beauty of her day.
Julia Restoin-Roitfeld recently told Glamour, “Wrinkles can be beautiful. They’re part of who you are, your charm and your history.” That’s pretty refreshing to hear, given an age where so many female stars feel they can’t age over 45. Here are some gorgeous older women who remind us that wrinkles really are beautiful. More
Just kidding. I would never advise anyone to get Botox. But I will share with you this interesting fact: Botox delays the onset of wrinkles. Via CNN:
“It is true, though, that if you begin using Botox and fillers in your 20s, creases and wrinkles will be slower to develop. That doesn’t mean they won’t; it just means they will take some more time to show.”
Here’s a clue: it’s not botox.
The Hairpin wants to save you from becoming old! You’ll do that by never moving your ace again, as illustrated in the 1970′s beauty manual “How to Use Your Hands To Save Your Face”. Basically, just clamp your hands to your cheeks and make sure your face isn’t moving. In doing so, you will become mistress of your face (I’m looking forward to my face wooing me with chocolates, race horses, etc). There are handy, oddly specific thought exercises like: More
According to a doctor named Michael Prager, women who spend hours every day looking at computer screens are destined to get wrinkles and ‘turkey necks.’ He told the Telegraph:
If you are one of the unfortunate people who frown or squint while they are concentrating at the screen then, over time, you will inevitably end up with frown lines. More
