7 anti-ageing hacks you should know

Our 2-minute cheats for younger-looking skin

1 Apply a mix of egg white and a tablespoon of mashed avocado on your face and leave it on for a few minutes. Wash it off with cold water for tighter and more radiant skin.

2 Dead skin is the biggest glow zapper; slough it away by rubbing half a tomato on your face.

3 Using a hair mask at least once a week ensures that your hair gets a regular shot of nutrition. When your hair looks flat, opt for a few spritzes of dry shampoo for an instant lift.

4 Supplement your anti-ageing skincare regimen with raw honey. Mix one tablespoon honey with two tablespoons of baking powder for a moisturising, anti-oxidant-rich exfoliator.

5 For an instant anti-ageing boost, spritz on a fragrance with notes of grapefruit. Studies prove that the fruity note reduces your perceived age by 10 years.

6 Thick brows can take a few years off your face. If your brows look sparse, enlist a pencil or dark shadow to fill in the gaps.

7 Curl your lashes before applying mascara to make your eyes look brighter and fresher.
