Since Taiwanese singer and actress Rainie Yang appeared as the second lead on the ridiculously popular idol drama Meteor Garden in 2001, she has been on a meteoric rise (pun intended). She quickly grew into a leading star in her own right, with several chart-topping hits on her belt.
Her fame, her achievements, and her talent are all well and good, but she also seems to have tapped into some elusive elixir of youth that has kept her face look fresh and youthful since her teenage days.
Just take a look at these two photos:

On the left, we have Rainie as a fresh-faced 19 year old, and on the right, we have a photo taken 16 years later when Rainie is an accomplished 33 year old artiste with a solid career going for her.
Sure, she’s lost some baby fats and changed her hairstyle to keep up with the times, but we’re sure we’re not alone in thinking: how does she not age?!
When we caught sight of this article written by Vogue Taiwan interviewing Rainie Yang about her beauty secrets and her secrets to eternal youth, there was no way we wouldn’t have clicked on Here are the gems that we’ve learnt.
Pick your brow shape wisely
If you look closely enough at Rainie’s older photos and compare them with her recent ones, you may be tempted to think that she may have gotten some kind of procedure done. There is something a little different about her face, and you may not be able to immediately identify what it is.
It’s true, she has gotten a procedure done: she has re-shaped her eyebrows.
“Your eyebrows can really change your entire look,” Rainie says to Vogue Taiwan.
However, she strongly recommended not following the latest trends, and instead shape your eyebrows according to your own face shape and features. “I know straight brows are trendy nowadays, but I still think every one has their own unique eyebrow shape. It’s too boring if everyone had the same eyebrows!”
Rainie has been doing this since she was 20 years old
Want to freeze your age or reverse time on your face? You absolutely can’t neglect this tip:
Rainie has been religiously using skincare on her neck for the past 14 years.
The skin on your face may be baby-smooth and radiant, but if you start getting wrinkles and pigmentation on your neck, it still adds a lot to your visual age. This is a maxim that many of us probably already knew about, but may not have acted on for some reason or other.
Not so for Rainie. Since she was 20 years old, she has never neglected her neck when it comes to her twice daily skincare routine. She uses upward strokes on her neck, bringing the skincare product from her neck to her face.

Even if you don’t have the luxury of buying a separate product for your neck, simply use your existing facial essence and it’ll still be better than nothing! “It’s really not that difficult. I think your neck will visually remain at whatever age you begin paying attention to it with skincare,” says Rainie.
