While it’s well known that the condition of a woman’s hands and neck can reveal her true age, some might not realize that the appearance of our earlobes is another telltale sign. Oh joy!
Earlobes change because of the natural ageing process and constant exposure to the sun, especially since we forget to put sunscreen on our ears.
As collagen and elasticity decreases, earlobes often become elongated, saggy and thin. Heavy earrings are particularly hard on our ears as they pull the ear downwards and cause the skin to become weaker and stretched.
I noticed some change in my earlobes and particularly my left one. The hole in my left ear is lower than my right one (my ears were pierced when I was around 9 years old by a friend of our family).
Because it’s lower, it pulls more than my right one. At some point I might look into doing a surgery but I’m not there yet.
I recently purchased Lobe Wonder and I can’t believe how much it has helped. This is a clear adhesive patch that is applied to the back of the earlobe.
It’s easy to apply and they really help your earrings not pull on your ear. I like to wear big earrings and these let me do that.
These earrings are slightly heavy and I am using the Lobe Wonder. If I weren’t wearing the Lobe Wonder it would have been pulling much worse. You would have seen the hole in my ear without the Lobe Wonder.
Also, when I wear stud earrings they stay up on my ear with Lobe Wonder and before they were hanging down a little.
(This outfit is one of my 25 Days of Winter Fashion and I’ll be sharing it this week.)
Tips to Prevent Ear Lobe sagging:
-Never sleep with earrings.
– Don’t wear heavy earrings routinely. Save this for an important event where you will only wear them a few hours.
– Don’t forget your sunscreen!
– Apply your retinol cream to the lower part of the ear when you apply it to your face.
