70-year-old influencer shares skincare tips that keep her looking young

70-year-old influencer shares skincare tips that keep her looking young

A 70-year-old has shared her three holy grail tips for keeping her skin looking young and healthy. 

Beauty influencer Brittany Allyn attracted more than 370,000 viewers on TikTok after her aunt shared her secrets for ageless skin.

Viewers were left astonished by Brittany’s aunty’s youthful looks in the now viral TikTok, captioned: “Simple, but it works.”

“First, I never stretch my skin. Think of old leather shoes – how they stretch. Your skin will too, it’s like leather,” she told Allyn’s 254,000 followers in the video.

“Always dab it with a towel, don’t use make-up wipes to wipe off your make-up,” she continues.

“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,” she says. 

In text over the clip, Allyn explained that “over-washing strips your natural oils from your skin, which are key to preventing wrinkles.”

Her final tip is to use a retinol product, which is a holy grail ingredient for any anti-ageing skincare routine. 

“I dab it on my eyes, I do my forehead, my cheeks, my neck, and my chest,” she says while mapping out where she places her product. 

“I’ll do it a second time and, if I think I need it, a third time. On my mouth and eyes.”

Brittany’s video was flooded with comments calling her aunty “stunning”, saying her skincare tips are invaluable.

While many found the hacks helpful, others were sure her ageless looks were the result of cosmetic surgery. 

“Face lift Botox fillers. Nothing wrong with that but it’s not the retinol,” said one critic.

Allyn later commented beneath her video to clarify the rumours.

“Hey all! This was supposed to be a fun video w/ her top non-surgery tips. She does get Botox/fillers too to be transparent! Her tips are helpful too!” she wrote.
