If you type “smooth your wrinkles” into Google, you’ll get page after page of procedures and skin care products that promise to smooth the lines on your face. Everything from face yoga, skin creams, and cosmetic surgery promise miracles with varying cost and downtime. Do they work? Sure, but none of them are fast. The fastest way to smooth the appearance of wrinkles on your face is by wearing the proper texture and color in your tops.
It’s a powerful tool for you to use. Wearing tops, sweaters, jackets, and scarves with a texture similar to your level of wrinkles will smooth the lines on your face. If your face is heavily textured, you’ll be flattered by heavily textured fabric because they provide low contrast and smooth your complexion. The closer that texture is to your face, the stronger the effect so a crew neck or scarf has more effect than a low scoop neck.
Your hair texture also effects how pronounced your wrinkles appear. If you have curly hair it repeats the texture of your skin so is low contrast. When we add layers or texture to our hair it softens the look of the wrinkles on our face. That’s one of the main reasons I stopped wearing a bob. My hair loves that style but my complexion doesn’t.
Look for textured fabric in a lightweight fabric. You don’t need to wear cabled sweaters to add texture. This tunic is thin but heavily textured.
Avoid shiny fabrics which will add years to your face making your wrinkles appear sharper and more defined.
Opt for colors that have low contrast to your skin tone. The pink and gray above are low contrast to my soft coloring. When I wear black, my wrinkles look more pronounced. That doesn’t mean I’m giving up black anytime soon but I need to wear heavier eye makeup to balance it or add a textured scarf next to my face.
I don’t know about you, but I’d rather wear texture than spend a fortune on a skin cream that might or might not work.
Have you embraced texture?
Thanks for reading ladies and have a great day.
