Life in Miami has made me very aware of how I look. When I was younger, I had to do less to look good. Now, at 41 years old, I put much more work into my beauty routine. While I believe beauty is in the eye of the beholder, it’s important to recognize your unique beauty and celebrate it; part of this celebration is to take good care of yourself so you can be the best version of yourself possible.

As part of a series on the secrets to looking beautiful at any age, I’ll discuss the truth about what goes into beauty routines. Though it may seem like a lot of work—frankly, it can seem exhausting!—the efforts do pay off. It can take a village to help keep you looking and feeling your best. Start building your beauty tribe so you can look and feel like your very best you!

Secret 9: Make An Appointment at Home.

There are so many beauty secrets available to you for at home treatments now. For one, you can now do an at-home spray tan that works wonders in a pinch. Whenever I need to up my look, I turn to Southeast Tahitian tan mist. This is a quick, easy remedy when you need to look flawless in a second. 

There are also a number of amazing products for your skin that I have at home, and they’re easy to pack for work trips, too! Currently, a couple of my favorites are the Talika Eye Therapy patches and the SK-II facial treatment mask. The ZIIP microcurrent hand-held device is a new favorite of mine as well. This device takes only 10 minutes a couple of times a week and helps to keep your skin tight and lifted.  I am doing all that I can to avoid going under the knife some day! Take advantage of all the DIY beauty secrets that are on the market today. Beauty, at any age, begins at home!
