If you are happy, it shows up on the surface; same with sadness too. So, to look ten years younger, you must feel ten years younger. We will all get old with time; youth is temporary. But many of us strive to keep ourselves young, isn’t it? Experts around the world have recommended that following a few tips in your day-to-day life can help you keep looking young.
#1. Find A Purpose In Your Life
You will age healthily if you can give meaning to your life. Find a reason to stay young: it could be a professional success, personal growth, relationships, positive impact on others’ lives, or simply being happy. When you find a purpose to stay young, you will obviously keep yourself younger than your age. Feel excited about your accomplishments and look forward to more adventures in life. When you invest in your passion and set yourself new goals, you always have something to look forward to in life.
#2. Take Good Care Of Your Skin
The first thing that people look at when they look at you is your face. So, retaining the facial glow is very important. Keep three things in mind to take care of your skin: use an exfoliator, use anti-aging creams, and apply sunscreen.
For an exfoliator, always use a microabrasion tool to remove dead and dull cells from the surface of your skin. Only then, there will be new cell growth to make you look fresh and rejuvenated. Using anti-aging creams or moisturizers containing antioxidants and retinol can increase collagen production to retain the elasticity of your skin. This will help your face look soft and supple. Lastly, using a sunscreen lotion can keep harmful effects of direct and prolonged sun exposure at bay. Use sunscreen on your face, hands, and other exposed areas of the body every time you go out in the sun to prevent the UV rays from causing you wrinkles and sun damage.
#3. Wear Clothes That Fit Well
Throw all the poorly fitting clothes away or just give them to charity. When you make poor clothing choices, you do not feel as confident as you should. Get rid of clothes that you don’t wear anymore and invest in clothes that fit you well and the ones you love. Feeling fit and comfortable can build confidence and make you look younger. Wear clothes that match with your body type, keep you upright, and make you look slimmer.
#4. Keep Your Teeth White And Strong
Your teeth can easily show what your real age is, so always take care of your teeth. Brush twice a day, use mouthwash and floss, and keep your teeth looking white, healthy, and attractive. Neglected teeth can lead to gum diseases and gingivitis. Bad teeth and bad oral health can easily impact your confidence as well. If you are losing your teeth, consider using veneers. Investing in good teeth and oral health can easily boost your confidence.
#5. Wear New Colors
Do not stop yourself from experimenting with new colors. In fact, as you age and your hair and skin start to change color, get more adventurous with new colors. Start using a rosy glow rather than a tanned glow on your skin. Use highlights in your hair moderately so that the golden touch in your hair remains.
Wearing black can be classy but darker shades can also make you look old. As you age, choose more bright-colored outfits to convey a sense of youth and vibrancy. Spice your wardrobe up with more shades of green, yellow, red, and orange. This doesn’t mean that you have to wear all bright shades from head to toe. Even if you like wearing dark shades, just add a dash of brightness, be it a scarf, a pocket square, or a necktie.
