Aging is definitely something that can cause distress to people. While this is usually more of a concern to women, men can relate to this as well. As people grow older, they slowly find themselves with an abundance of wrinkles, enlarged pores, overall bad hair, and poor dental hygiene.
Finding your 50-year-old-self next to another person of the same age with luscious hair and healthy skin makes you wonder how other people can achieve that. Because everyone should look their best, we share with you our top 10 secrets to looking younger:
1 Make Your Manicure Stand Out
We decided to start with the most basic thing – your hands. All it takes to take people’s attention off your wrinkles is a good manicure. By that, we mean slapping on a bright red or pink color onto your fingernails which will instantly help you look younger.
When it comes to color selection, do not stray too far from shades of red or pink. Those trendy shades of blue, green, or even yellow will make you look like you are trying too hard to look young if the style does not suit you.
2 Put On A Face Primer
This is pretty simple and easy. Once you find a primer that suits you best (we will not recommend any particular product, but don’t be afraid to try things out), apply it just below your chin – the neck and your upper chest area. You will eventually find yourself with a silky finish on your body that instantly make you look younger.
3 Soften Your Hairstyle
The general rule is hair with a soft, natural flow makes you look younger. Ditch the trendy styles for back-to-basics which is what actually most men prefer.
The next time you visit your hairstylist, ask for layers that will add a soft effect to your face, framing it, and ultimately making you look a lot younger and definitely more attractive!
4 Boost Your Hair’s Volume
Purchasing a powerful hairdryer will allow you to transform straight or wavy hair to voluminous hair, making you look amazing every day.
Try this technique: as you’re drying your hair, pull it near the crown with a round brush, going towards the ceiling. It’s really quite simple yet effective.
When it comes to picking a dryer, select those that come along with a concentrator nozzle. They are designed to control the hot air’s flow.
5 Find The Perfect Foundation
Foundations that consist of anti-aging ingredients will definitely help you mask your wrinkles. But the key thing is to find a foundation that works as a treatment to lift your face as well.
For best results, remember this tip: apply the foundation in daylight. Avoid applying foundation in your bathroom unless the lighting is strong.
6 Avoid White Sugar
White sugar is basically a processed food with detrimental effects that hastens aging. White sugar makes your skin age faster by binding to and weakening your skin’s vital element, collagen. This can cause wrinkles to form easily.
Instead of sweets, eat more fruits and vegetables which has high water content to replenish and hydrate your skin. They will also give you a boost in vitamins and make your skin look and feel healthier.
If you really need to take sugar, good alternatives will be brown sugar or raw sugar instead of processed white sugar.
7 Make Your Eye Area Look Fresh
Even though you may already be applying various facial creams, the area around your eyes is usually neglected as most products are unsuitable to apply near sensitive areas.
Luckily, there are products made especially for the skin area around your eyes. The key thing is to find a product with a gel formula, which will ensure your eye shadows and makeup look fresh throughout your daily routine.
8 Do Not Forget Your Hands!
If you start noticing signs of aging on your hands, it’s prime time to begin applying the same process you would apply to your face – exfoliation.
Every time you exfoliate your face or even apply a mask to it, do the exact same thing with your hands. Hand masks are popular and easy to find in stores.
9 Try A Massage
Regular massage session does wonder for your body. A full body massage is the absolute best trick to getting that reborn feeling. Deep tissue massages are also a top recommendation, as they focus in on the muscles which may be overused.
For a cheaper solution, try this. Take 20 to 30 minutes each day and do stretching, yoga, or even meditate. All these activities will give you an energy boost, and make you look and feel younger!
As you age, eyelashes can become brittle and dry which may cause them to fall out easily. The trick to keeping them refreshed and healthy is simple: before going to bed, apply eye cream to the tip of your eyelashes (of course, apply it to your eyes as well) using your fingers. This simple process will moisturize and revitalize your eyelashes, giving you a younger and fresher look each day!
