No woman really likes getting wrinkles and many will spend lots of money buying fancy wrinkle creams and face soaps in the hopes they will prevent them from looking older. But it turns out you don’t have to spend an arm and a leg to keep your skin looking younger, and some women are sharing their secrets on how to do it.
A new thread on the Mumset site has women revealing their anti-aging beauty secrets, and a lot of them are pretty simple. More than 100 women have contributed to the post after a 27-year-old voiced their concern about wrinkles and for most posters the answer is simple – wash your face with warm water, and don’t use too much makeup.
Answers varied from women who rarely use soap to wash their face, while others say exercising regularly and drinking lots of water helps. One woman acknowledged she was lucky because she has “good genes,” but also that she doesn’t smoke and uses “real sunscreen.” In fact, sunscreen was a response many women gave, with one woman in her 50s chalking up her good skin to never having a “lie in the sun” and always wearing sunblock “even in winter.”
