Antioxidants in green tea slow down time, at least in skin years whereas the catechin EGCG is especially beneficial in reactivating dying skin cells. Moreover, the tannins found in green tea can shrink your pores and reduce your sebum production resulting in deacreased oil production and hence clearer, acne-free skin. When applied tropically, green tea is known to bring down eye puffiness and dark circles, give skin a healthy glow, act as a skin toner and a face scrub. Buy now

Age is a number: Tips for women with mature skin
Don’t let fine lines, wrinkles, dark spots and crow’s feet dull your shine. We outline the five basic changes you need to make in your life today to have healthy, youthful skin for as long as you want.
Massage your face:
Use a cleanser or oil and massage your face muscles upwards to tighten loose skin and give your face a lifted look. This nighttime ritual may seem trivial but you’d be surprised with its results in the long run. Massaging helps exercise your face muscles and stops them from drooping. Make your cleanser or oil has a good dose of Vitamin C so that you can also boost collagen production while you massage your face.
Use an egg white mask:
Egg white is a powerhouse of anti-aging agents like omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, and zinc. It is known to tighten the skin making it firm and smooth. Take a tea spoon of honey and one raw egg, and mix it until you have a smooth and consistent substance. Spread this skin tightening face mask onto your face and neck and relax for fifteen minutes. Then wash it with lukewarm water and pat your skin with a clean towel.
Invest in a good anti-aging day cream:
The New Pond’s Age Miracle Day Cream has Pond’s’ most advanced anti-aging technology, Retinol-C Complex, to continuously release powerful anti-aging retinoid actives that work help in reducing wrinkles for a youthful glow. If you feel like a day cream isn’t enough you can up your skin game with Fair & Lovely BB Cream packed with the goodness of micro vitamins and SPF for a lightweight coverage that doesn’t set into the wrinkles or fine lines (if any).
Use a cream blush and highlighter:
Nothing says youthful glow than a flush across the cheeks and that lit from within glow. Go makeup shopping and take your time to pick what really suits your skintone. However, as skin matures it loses its elasticity and natural oils so we suggest you pick cream blush and highlighter first, test and try and see if it works well with your skin since powder makes dry skin look dryer and cakey.
