Tricks for keeping a youthful appearance*
Let’s face it – no one wants to look older than they are. And, while you can’t rewind the clock, there are lots of things you can do to stay looking young. Whether you want to prevent the signs of aging or improve the look of fine lines and wrinkles, you have plenty of options to keep you looking your best.
Stick to a good skincare routine
It’s always a good idea to start a skincare routine when you’re young, this will prevent premature aging and damage in the first place. However, you’re never too old to start. Skin that is well hydrated and cared for will look plumper and firmer, and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles will be reduced. Find products that work for you and your skin type, and get into the routine of applying them every morning and evening for the best results. Age old advice such as drinking plenty of water to keep the skin hydrated and not sleeping in makeup still stands too.
Using make-up really can make a dramatic difference, and done well can make you look younger and more youthful. For example our skin can lose radiance as we age, and so to combat this you could choose a foundation that makes your skin look dewy and illuminated. You could apply a rosy coloured blush to give a healthy, youthful look to the cheeks and a lip product in a similar colour to your natural lips to make them appear fuller. A good mascara or subtle false lashes will make your eyes look bigger and more fluttery. Filling in sparse brows will again make the face look younger and more youthful. Make-up is an amazing tool, there are so many tutorials available online it’s so worth teaching yourself and making the most of it.
Have some work done
Procedures these days can be subtle, quick and painless. You won’t need any downtime to recover, and unlike a traditional face lift you won’t walk out of the clinic looking like a completely different person. Instead you’ll simply look like the best version of yourself. People will be more likely to say “you look fantastic today” rather than “what have you had done?” Dermal fillers, botox, lip injections etc – they can all be done to look subtle and gorgeous and leave you looking fresh and youthful.
Visit The Dentist
Teeth that look stained and worn will age your face drastically. Visit the dentist and see what they recommend in order to brighten your smile. It could be as simple as a scale and polish and some new whitening toothpaste. It could be teeth whitening trays or laser teeth whitening, or even veneers which can correct a number of cosmetic dental problems. A bright white smile is a quick way to restore a youthful appearance to the face, and will probably give your self confidence a boost too.
