Kat, a trained esthetician and skincare expert, has gone viral on TikTok with a video of how she managed to stay wrinkle-free at 50 – and users were keen to give it a go
A woman has revealed how she’s managed to stay wrinkle-free at 50.
Kat, a trained esthetician and skincare expert, regularly shares beauty advice on her TikTok @shinebeautymalibu, where she has 268,000 followers.
But in a recent video, that has been viewed more than 1.1 million times, Kat revealed the anti-ageing secret that has kept her looking so young for all these years.
To keep wrinkles at bay all you need is a roll of scotch tape, which you can purchase from almost anywhere for as little as £1.
Kat said that she was first taught the technique by skincare expert Dr. Brant and has been practising it ever since.
Now, thanks to the hack, she has hardly any wrinkles.
She said: “In the beauty world we like to use the terms involuntary movement and voluntary movement, meaning you can voluntary move your eyebrows and make expressions but that often we involuntary do it.
“You have no idea how often you do this in a day and all those involuntary movements cause lines and wrinkles that you will have for the rest of your life.
“I was introduced to something called tape training.”
In the clip, she starts by cutting four bits of tape to around two inches in length.
To a clean and dry face, she applies the tape in the spot right in between her eyebrows.
Then, she put a piece of tape horizontally above each eyebrow.
The final piece should be placed across the middle of your forward, again horizontally.
The noise that the tape makes when you involuntarily frown or move your forehead will encourage you not to make these expressions, which, over time will help to prevent wrinkles and fine lines.
She recommends people start “tape training” from their early twenties, as it can help decrease lines becoming deeper.
Since being posted, the video has racked up more than 4,000 likes and hundreds of comments from stunned users who were eager to give it a go for themselves.
One person said: “Your skin is gorgeous! I love all of your advice. I’m 33 and I can see my skin ageing and I’m so glad my algorithm let me to your page.”
Another added: “I didn’t know this was a thing.”
A third commented: “That’s great advice! The sunglasses comment is a good one too.”
Someone else put: “I’ll be damned. Great tape secret.”
Kat isn’t the only one that swears by “tape training” as a woman commented, saying: “My mum taught me this years ago. I have no forehead lines and I’m in my 50s. She has none and she’s 83.”
