10 Ways to Look Younger

Two weeks ago, I turned another year older.  And while aging is inevitable, looking old is not!  To help keep you looking your best, I’ve researched these 10 Ways to Look Younger! Don’t worry…no surgery or injections are required!

10 Ways to Look Younger

1. Use a primer on your hair

Dull hair can make you appear older than you actually are.  As people age, a natural loss of fatty acids and keratin proteins makes hair duller and more vulnerable to damage, so things you’ve always done such as color your hair, use heat products, can damage your hairs inner cortex and can also rough up the surface!  You can use a multitasking primer on your hair (my fave is this one) to make your hair shinier and more manageable.

2. Protect your lips

As you age your body produces less collagen which can make your lips appear thinner.  The ultraviolet rays of the sun can also break down collagen in your lips!  Choose a lipstick like LipSense that will protect your lips.   LipSense provides a natural shield from the sun. The proprietary formulations and color pigments in LipSense help create a mechanical covering for the lips. LipSense will keep your lips looking and feeling great!

3. Exfoliate your skin

Just like your hair can look duller as you age, your skin also loses its youthful glow! You need to exfoliate your face and your body. I love this skin polishing facial brightener and this body polish is amazing!

4. Moisturize your skin

Now that you’ve gotten rid of all the dead skin, you need to moisturize. When your skin is hydrated, your skin plumps up, making wrinkles less noticeable {and we want them to be less noticeable}!  While moisturizing your face is important, don’t forget your  neck, your decolletage, and your hands.  All of these areas are places where your age will show if you’re not moisturizing regularly.

5.  Frame your eyes

Just like your hair gets duller and sparser as you age, so do your eyelashes.  You have a few options for making your eyes pop.  You can get extensions (this is my personal fave) and although it’s a little pricy, for me, it’s some of the best money I spend each month.  If you don’t want to spend the money on extensions or your not thrilled with the idea of monthly maintenance, consider a lash boosting product.  My sister swears by this one.

6. Frame your eyes (part 2)

Lashes are super important in framing your eyes, but so are eyebrows!  Eyebrows grow thinner as we age (and if you have thyroid issues, that can make them even more sparse).  Use a neutral color eyeshadow or brow balm to fill in your eye brows. I like this brow balm or the eye shadows in this palette.  If you want to go for no maintenance eyebrows, try microblading.  {I’m totally considering this. I’ll let you know if I decide to go through with it.

7. Whiten your teeth

Our teeth tend to get dingy with age…especially if you regularly drink coffee, tea, soda or wine.  Use a whitening toothpaste to remove stains from the surface of your teeth.  AP-24 is my favorite whitening toothpaste and gets results quickly! It doesn’t contain peroxide and is safe to use on sensitive teeth!

8. Update your accessories

If you tend to wear traditional and timeless styles, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut.  While you may not want to buy a new wardrobe, new accessories are inexpensive and can be purchased in trendy styles that will make you appear younger and more fashionable!  These drop earrings are fabulous and fun!

9. Get a tan

Excessive sun exposure can lead to more wrinkles and skin that looks even older, but you can get that sun kissed look without ever stepping outside or going to a tanning bed.  If you’re looking for a natural tanning solution that’s easy to apply, consider these tanning towlettes.  If you’re willing to spend some money, consider getting an airbrushed tan.  During an airbrushed tan, a skilled technician will spray you tan.  It’s quite fabulous!

10.  Stand up straight

Remember when your mom would chide you to stand up straight or sit up straight? Well…that’s what I’m doing now.  As you age, your posture often worsens causing you to look older than you are.  Stand up straight (or sit up straight), pull your shoulders back, put your chin up and walk confidently!  Now that you’re using these 10 ways to look younger, you can strut your stuff confidently knowing that you look like a million bucks!
