Although just about everyone would like to, it’s impossible to turn back the hands of time. However, what you can control is the impact that time has on your appearance. If you want to look younger, you may think you’re going to have to empty your bank account or endure painful procedures. While some people do take those approaches, the good news is there are other options. Not only are other options available, but some of the most effective are surprisingly simple. Let’s take a look at a few examples:
Get a Little Color: Everyone looks better when they’re tan. Because being tan is associated with being outdoors and active, it’s one of the best ways to reclaim your youthful appearance. However, the catch is the sun is actually the worst culprit when it comes to aging your appearance. While it can add color to your skin, it can also dry it out and destroy collagen and elasticity, leaving deep wrinkles. Since that’s exactly what you want to avoid, you won’t want to use natural or artificial sunlight for your color. Instead, use a quality self-tanning lotion to add color without causing any damage. And when you do go outside, make sure you protect your skin with a broad spectrum sunblock formulated without parabens.
Don’t Forget About the Rest of Your Body: Since you care about taking care of your appearance, chances are moisturizing is already part of the daily regime you follow for your face. While applying moisturizer may not seem like a significant action, the cumulative impact it can have over time can keep your skin looking much younger. Because moisturizing your skin is so effective, you should expand your routine to include other parts of your body like your hands and neck. One of the most common reasons that people feel older than they want is because they forget to show these areas the same care they give to their face. As a result, they’re still walking around with unwanted signs of aging. Luckily, it only takes a few extra minutes a day to resolve this issue.
Do an Instant Lift with Makeup: Your eyes are one of the first things people see when they look at you. Since your eyes can set the tone for the rest of your appearance, you don’t want them to appear droopy or tired. If you’re concerned that the only way to deal with sagging lids is to go under the knife, you’ll be relieved to learn that two simple makeup tips can work wonders for your eyes. The first is to use eyeliner to add definition. The other way to give your eyes more lift is to use an eyeshadow shade that falls in the medium to deep range of the color spectrum. By applying this type of eyeshadow in towards your eyelid’s crease, you will instantly minimize any visible droopiness.
Get Rid of Those Dark Circles: As many as 80-90% of people experience dark circles under their eyes at some point, and nothing can make you look tired and older when people look at your face. Use an under eye cream containing Vitamin K and Arnica Montana to freshen and brighten your eyes.
You’re only as old as you feel. By taking advantage of these simple tricks, you can enjoy looking and feeling younger on a daily basis!
