How to Look Younger

We know that aging is inevitable for everyone but there are a few things we can do to help us to keep looking as young as we feel.

Teeth

Clean, healthy teeth can make you appear younger than what you are. A strict oral-care routine should include mouth wash, flossing and brushing at least three times a day. If your teeth are stained you can consider having a whitening treatment done or doing one yourself with one of the many whitening products on the market. Crooked teeth and tooth decay should been seen too by a dentist in order to receive the right treatment.

Facial Care

To avoid letting your skin age, make use of a gentle facial cleaner. Harsh cleansers strip the skin of natural oils and tend to have a drying out effect that makes people look older. Use a cleanser that is appropriate for your age or ones that state they are gentle and nourishing.

Moisturize

A rigid moisturizing routine after cleansing will help your skin maintain its youthfulness. Dry skin does age quicker so use anti-aging moisturizers that comprise a high percentage of active components. Try to find products that have been approved by scientific research and ensure that your products are highly moisturizing.

Always Use Sun Protection

Everyday sun care will prevent UV damage to your skin. Most moisturizers contain a degree of SPF protection as do makeups. The sun is a major cause of early aging so try to wear at least SPF 15 every single day to prevent wrinkles, brown spots and a dull complexion. Most importantly, sun protection protects your skin from cancer.

Exfoliate

A gentle form of exfoliation encourages skin cell renewal which can help you to look younger. Choose a product that is gentle and less likely to dry out or damage your skin.  Exfoliation will leave your skin feeling softer and glowing.

Facial Hair

Managing facial hair will make men look well groomed and younger and will help women to hide the side effects of aging. Keeping faces clean shaven and nose and ear hair trimmed will keep you from looking older than you are.

Often facial hair will appear in woman post-menopause owing to the change in hormone levels. To rid your face of hair and appear younger consider having laser hair removal, waxing, threading or using hair removal cream.

Hair Color

Cover up grey hair by using hair dyes that promise 100% grey coverage. Choose a color close to your natural hair color to appear more natural. You could opt to have your hair colored professionally or do it yourself at home with a store-bought kit. Do avoid dying too often though as hair dye is harmful to hair. Be sure to use products designed to care for dyed hair too.

Dress Appropriately

Dress correctly for your body shape and age. Wear clothing that is flattering and slimming and makes you look trendy.

Eating healthily and exercising regularly will help you to stay fit and healthy, keeping aging at bay.
