For creative, entrepreneur, and veritable style icon Lisa Corbo, age isn't just a number—it's a point of pride and joy. In a world that too often asks women to quietly fade into age, her illustrious approach to beauty, self-care, and personal style hasn't wavered—and we were eager for her secrets. Luckily for us, she was more than willing. For Lisa's musings on aging more than just gracefully—keep reading.

What are your go-to tips for aging gracefully?
My number one go-to tip for aging gracefully is to always, always, always prioritize a regime around taking care of your skin (face and body!) morning and night. From head to toe, I cannot stress this enough.
Is there a specific beauty mantra you follow?
I think my mantra really comes down to less is more. In the morning, I splash some water on my face pre-workout. I’m really into body care and don’t go a day without my Bioderma ultra-nourishing moisturizing cream. I just started following that with my Oak Essentials Dew Body Oil for extra hydration as we enter the cooler months. In my opinion, prioritizing high quality makeup and skincare is always best, what goes on your face, ultimately is absorbed. I love Westman Atelier.
Walk us through your current beauty and well-being routines. What are your daily non-negotiables?
My current hyperfixation in my routine is the CurrentBody LED Light Therapy mask, 10 minutes a day, 3 times a week—I’ve noticed a huge difference in my skin already. Starting and ending my day with hot water and lemon is essential. Making time for movement daily is also non-negotiable, and that can just mean a long walk. I’m lucky to live near the water in Toronto, and it’s the ultimate self-care time to me.
What is your favorite part about getting older?
Getting older can be challenging to wrap your head around some days, but ultimately, it’s a huge blessing and you need to remind yourself of that every day. I do love the fact that as you age, you just look fresher without makeup. Doesn’t hurt that it’s a huge time saver, too!
