Are You Making These 10 Makeup Mistakes?

To stave off signs of aging, probably the best thing to do is to start a solid skin-care program in your 20s. But even those of us who see that mile marker in the rearview can take constructive steps. Start by moderating the amount of sugar you consume: It degrades the collagen in your skin, which can lead to wrinkles and sagging. On the other hand, increase your intake of collagen-generating vitamin C. And then don’t undo all your good work by making makeup mistakes that “age” you—like applying harsh lip liner or spackling on concealer. Get more beauty pros’ anti-aging secrets, including product suggestions and pointers on what to do when your hair starts to go gray—and you don’t want it to.
