Vogue Japan

Fresh-Faced

These Vogue Japan pictures of Gisele have been sitting on my desktop—I’m smitten with her freckles and gorgeous complexion. I don’t expect to look 37 again but, maybe it’s time for a tweak or two.

I keep talking about the lines around my mouth, but have yet to deal with them properly. A few years ago Heather Clawson of Habitually Chic posted a fantastic skincare guide and swears by lasers, which I am game to try. And more recently, Vogue documented the 15 micro treatments that journalist Jancee Dunn undertook the year prior to her 50th birthday. The video is really interesting; so many procedures that I didn’t even know about.

  • Preston there are so many treatments to enhance your natural beauty and to efresh and rejuvenate but I think it is so important for all women to remember that magazines airbrush everything and not even Gisele looks as flawless as magazine Gisele! We should seek the best self care to feel confident but also embrace the imperfection of our natural faces! Happy New Year and keep posting provocative and beautiful ideas and images.

  • Lazar sounds like a safe option to try . There are a lot of options out there so a post would be great !

  • I am keenly interested in any treatments/procedures which will effectively improve my skin. Things change quickly post-menopause. Ideally I would like to avoid surgery; but I know there are no miracles in a bottle and I want to look young and healthy, which is how I feel. Physically I am fit and healthy – I am definitely ready to try a new approach. My doctor says no to estrogen supplements; what do your readers say/do to eliminate the lines, crepey skin, and to address the loss of supple, youthful skin? I welcome posts on this subject!

  • I think some of Giselle’s freckles are artful additions which only enhance her lovely complexion. As for intervention processes, I have moved from the ‘never’ camp to ‘lasers look like a possibility’ camp. These days, like Nora Ephron I feel bad about my neck. But not that bad, more disappointed in it.

  • i have seen an approximate 25% improvement to my neck droop with Infini micro needling. This is not a plug for Infini as there are other brands out there. That said, the most dramatic improvement involves a neck lift, which I have decided to have done next month. I plan to watch most of the Winter Olympics!

  • There is so much available to keep you looking good, but healthy, and not have people wondering what you’ve had done. I’ve been under the care of a terrific dermatologist for about 25 years and what he’s all about is skin care. I buy all my products from him (TNS, Neo-Cutis, etc.). If he stops carrying one line for another, I know the reasoning and he’ll recommend what’s right for me. Right now, I have 5 products in my drawer plus my sunscreen, which I buy from him as well. Regular peels are essential for me, plus I’ve done Ultherapy a few times and even though you don’t see immediate results, it’s great. I’m also about to do my second round of Fraxel Dual and that’s a game changer. It’s good to hear what other people are doing, but really, the best thing is to find a doctor you like and follow their recommendations as to what’s best for you.

  • I agree completely with Kim. I think you have to find a doctor that you trust and go with his/her recommendations for your own skin. Dual Fraxel has been a game changer for me as well, and I do buy my dermatologist’s products as well. I’ve had bad results when I go out on my own and just waste money.

  • I second what Maggie said. Please let’s not forget that while Giselle looks amazing and takes incredible care of herself, her (however minor) age-appropriate lines have surely been airbrushed away. The standards of beauty we see every day — whether in editorials or on instagram — don’t represent reality. They are difficult to live up to!
