70 going on 50! Ageless beauty guru reveals her fool-proof tips to achieve youthful skin - and it doesn't involve surgery

They're steps you can implement easily into your beauty regimen.

A popular beauty blogger has gone viral after sharing her aunty's simple and affordable tips for youthful skin - and it doesn't involve any plastic surgery.
Brittany Allyn, who's built a brand around her beauty hacks and recommendations, got some sage advice from her 70-year-old aunt who doesn't look a day over 50!
"First, I never stretch my skin. Think of old leather shoes — how they stretch. Your skin will too, it's like leather," she told her niece's 254,000 followers in a video posted to TikTok.

"Always dab it with a towel, don't use make-up wipes to wipe off your make-up."
The ageless beauty also suggested using as minimal products as possible in your everyday skincare routine.
"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 explained.
Brittany went on to explain in her caption that "over-washing strips your natural oils from your skin, which are key to preventing wrinkles."
Her final tip, which shouldn't come as a shock to beauty lovers, is to incorporate a retinol product into your everyday skincare regimen.
"I dab it on my eyes, I do my forehead, my cheeks, my neck, and my chest," she said. "I'll do it a second time and, if I think I need it, a third time, on my mouth and eyes."
And the proof is certainly in the pudding! She could easily be mistaken for looking 20 years younger.
