For model Sylke Golding, the expression "better with age" feels like the understatement of a lifetime. "I never expected this!" admits the fifty-something German beauty of a career that's been on a meteoric rise, carrying her from the recent Gucci runway in Milan to campaigns for Madewell and Vogue editorials around the globe. Off duty in New York City, Golding wears minimal makeup but makes time to refine her skin. "I like a super, super sheer foundation," she says of her light-handed approach. "And I want to preserve the glow."
In today's Vital Skin foundation tutorial, she sits down with Gucci for a crash course in upping her 'good skin' game. Together, they zero in on a shared checklist of topics for "chicks in our fifties"—darkness under the eyes, dullness, hyperpigmentation, melasma—but the mesmerizing results are a 'lightbulb moment' at any age.
