Lifestyle and environmental factors, like exposure to sun, smoke and toxins, also determine how well your complexion will age, regardless of genetics. In addition to avoiding factors that will age your skin, establishing a thorough skin care regimen for your specific skin type and condition will help your skin throughout the years.

I'm a freelance writer, makeup artist and brow expert with nearly ten years of professional experience in the beauty industry. Eating healthy, trying new beauty products and writing personal essays are a few of my favorite things. I can usually be found roaming the magazine aisles of bookstores or sitting at the café compulsively shopping online for shoes, books, clothes, and makeup. If I went to the gym as often as I talked about wanting to start exercising, I would have a 12-pack by now. I believe that having a good skincare regimen and expertly groomed eyebrows are two cornerstones to being naturally beautiful.
