Can you look 10 years looking younger?
January 6, 2013
If you ask a lot of women what would they most want there will be a fair few who would say they want to look ten years younger. It seems like the Holy Grail of the beauty world but can you really make yourself look ten year’s younger?
Ditch the bad habits
The first thing to look at is your lifestyle. So if you smoke it is really important to quit as not only does smoking lead to premature aging of the skin it also affects your teeth and a bad smile can really age you.
A healthy diet and taking regular exercise will also do wonders for your looks as beauty really comes from within. So by eating a healthy balanced diet and exercising regularly not only will you be fitter and healthier but also shave years off your looks.
Don’t forget the SPF
You should wear sunscreen all day, everyday, even when the sun is behind a cloud. The UVA and UVB rays from the sun are a massive cause of skin aging so by protecting your skin in the sun will help stop premature aging.
Make your pearly whites shine
One instant way to make yourself look younger is to brighten your smile. So simply by getting your teeth whitened you could take about five years of your age. However, a key thing to remember is not to go too white as this can look fake – the colour of your teeth should match the whites of your eyes and not be too Hollywood.
Learn a few makeup tricks
If you are looking to knock a few years of your face then it’s really important to know a few good makeup tricks. However, it’s important to adapt your makeup look as you get older as the kind of style you would have got away with in your early 20s is likely to look aging now. Instead, opt for a fresh dewy look to help you look younger.
Dress to impress
Just because you are getting older doesn’t mean you need to look frumpy but at the same time you don’t want to look tarty. So the best bet is to dress to suit your body shape and emphasis your best bits. Try not to hide your body in a shapeless black tent and instead dress to suit your body and you will look fabulous.
Don’t forget the hairstyle
As you age your hair starts to thin so you should use volumising products to add oomph to your style and of course have a chat to your hairdresser who can advise you of the best cut to add volume to your look.
It’s also important to think about your hair colour as like with your makeup the hair colour you had in your 20s may not suit your older skin tone so your hairdresser can advise of the best colour to lift your whole look.
There’s no need to go under the knife
You may think that to look younger you have to undergo a drastic facelift instead there are number of non-evasive anti-aging treatments that you can undergo. Treatments such as Botox, Dermal Fillers, a CACI non-invasive facial or a dermal roller can help make you look younger and rejuvenated and at Shumaila we can help you find the best treatment to help you look and feel your best.
