 Expensive facial cleansers, anti-aging night creams, lip plumpers, hair dyes — they all promise to preserve youth.

But the truth is, ageless beauty doesn’t come in a high-priced jar or bottle. Beauty comes from confidence and healthy lifestyle choices that allow women of any age to feel their best inside and out. recently worked with leading experts, including dermatologists and nutritionists, to provide beauty tips for older adults. From reducing wrinkles to maintaining radiant skin, here are four tips for looking beautiful and feeling great after 60.

  1. Vary Sleep Sides. Regularly switching sleep positions can help keep skin smooth and minimize wrinkles.
  2. Let Hair Breathe. A too-tight ponytail or bun can exacerbate breakage and cause hair to start receding at the crown. Let hair move freely, or sweep it up loosely.
  3. Take a Yoga Class. The fluidity of movement and deep breathing inherent in yoga practice increases circulation and oxygen to the skin, giving the complexion a healthy radiance.
  4. Don’t Skip the Sunscreen. Even on overcast days, UVA rays penetrate the clouds and soak into the skin, increasing the likelihood of premature aging and skin cancer.
