I’m 70 & look so much younger – my anti-aging skin secrets including why I never ‘stretch’ my skin | The Sun

EVERYONE gets wrinkled skin eventually but that doesn't mean you can't do your best to avoid it for as long as possible.

From anti-wrinkle products to facelift procedures, there are lots of options to fight aging – and some are very simple.

TikTok user Brittany Allyn shared her 70-year-old aunt's top three anti-aging tips.

Brittany's youthful-looking aunt began with a simple tip on how to remove your makeup.

"First, I never stretch my skin. Think of old leather shoes – how they stretch. Your skin will too, it's like leather," she told Brittany's followers.

She continued: "Always dab it with a towel, don't use make-up wipes to wipe off your make-up."

Brittany's captions explained how using wipes "for even a second each day, adds up over 70 years."

Her second tip involved a simple scaled-back skincare routine.

"Number two, I only wash my face at night. I use my fingertips very gently and splash water on and then dab it with a towel."

Brittany explained: "Over-washing strips your natural oils from your skin, which are key to preventing wrinkles."

Finally, the 70-year-old recommended using retinol lotion to prevent wrinkled skin.

"I dab it on my eyes, I do my forehead, my cheeks, my neck, and my chest," she said.

She continued: "I'll do it a second time and, if I think I need it, a third time. On my mouth and eyes."

Brittany's aunt gave viewers some additional tips which included eating healthy but also enjoying life.

Brittany's followers were impressed by her aunt's youthful appearance.

"I'm sorry, did you say 70?!!! Amazing," wrote one user.

Another commenter said: "Absolutely stunning! So many great tips!"

"Don't stretch skin is soooo important!! Also, don't touch under eye area because it's so thin!" wrote a third person.
