There are now plenty of surgical options to help reduce the physical appearance of aging, but there are plenty of ways that can help you look younger. For those of you that would like to stay away from surgery, here are 17 proven ways to look younger:
1. Clean Your Face With a Scrub
One that has beads will restore a pinkish color and give you a healthy glow.
2. Whiten Your Teeth
Teeth can yellow as you age, so get them back to that youthful and white appearance with whitening strips.
3. Do Away With a Plain Hairdo, Get Bangs
Full bangs that are swept to the side will not only give you a youthful style, but will also hide fine lines and wrinkles.
4. Add Highlights to Your Hair
Adding lighter shades of color to your hair will brighten your complexion and give you a younger appearance.
5. Replace Your Black Eye Liner For Navy
The whites of your eyes yellow as you age. The navy color of liner actually brightens whites and reduces the yellow appearance.
6. Use a Face Primer With Silicone
A primer that includes the silicone ingredient will help fill in fine lines for a smoother, younger look.
7. Hide Age Spots, But Do So Lightly
To disguise age spots, apply an opaque foundation then lightly dust with a translucent powder to seal the look.
8. Curl Your Lashes and Open Those Eyes Up
Using an eyelash curler will open up your eyes and make them look younger, giving your entire face a lift.
9. Lengthen and Thicken Your Eyelashes
Brush on a lengthening mascara, then follow with two coats of thickening mascara before the initial application dries.
10. Wear Nail Polish
Researchers have found that wearing nail polish makes your hands look younger. A lighter color is better than darker.
11. Do Not Pull Back Your Hair Tightly
Hair that is pulled back tightly draws attention to every line on your face. Having looser hair will add volume to your appearance.
12. Use Hair Mousse
Formulas with panthenol bulk up fine hair without weighing it down.
13. Go For a “Happy Medium” in Eye Makeup
Too much makeup can make you look older but so does no makeup. Opt for a “happy medium” by choosing neutral colors like cocoa, bronze, or copper.
14. Get Rid of the Lipstick
Switching to a thick, shiny gloss will make your lips look fuller and more youthful, especially when using a lighter color like a soft pink.
15. Wash Your Hair With a Clarifying Shampoo
As you age, your hair appears duller. Clarifying shampoo removes dulling buildup and adds shine.
16. Get 7-8 Hours of Sleep
Getting enough sleep perks up your facial skin and reduces dark circles.
17. Have Sex
A study has proven that doing it a few times (preferably three or more days) a week makes women look up to ten years younger. Bonus: Having sex also gives you a workout, which will help keep you in shape and feeling younger too!
