Why looking younger isn’t just for women: anti-aging tips for men

September 21, 2013

So we know that us girls do what we can to look and feel younger but it seems the boys are getting a little left behind. According to a new survey by Benenden health, men give up on the way they look at 46 whereas women only give up at 59. It seems that declining health, a lack of physical fitness and not being bothered about what they see as cool means that men give up trying to look younger over a decade before their female counterparts.

However, with an increasingly competitive job market and many men back on the dating scene in their 40s and 50s in some ways it is vital that they do try and stay looking young and youthful. But if there is one thing that women know it’s that anti-aging doesn’t have to be stressful as there are a number of things that can be done to help turn back the clock. So what can the guys learn from the girls about looking and feeling younger?

It’s what you put in that counts

It may sound like a cliché but you really are what you eat. So make sure you eat a healthy diet, drink lots of water and get exercise and that will really help to slow down the aging process. Simply by taking a few steps to take care of yourself you will really notice that you look and feel younger.


Wear sunscreen


And no we are not talking about the Baz Luhrman song here! It’s something us girls have been hearing for a while but the sun really is aging so simply by wearing sunscreen you can help delay the aging process.

Don’t give up

Sometimes I think women have it a little easier than the guys because if we don’t feel our best we can put on makeup to cover it or we can go and get beauty treatments and nobody bats an eyelid. However, that doesn’t mean that men can’t take advantage of some of the anti-aging treatments that are available.


For example, Botox is becoming increasingly popular with men who want to look and feel younger. The idea behind Botox is that it stops the nerve endings that cause our faces to contract and cause furrows and wrinkles so you don’t have to give up on looking younger just because you have a few lines and wrinkles. While something like a non-surgical CACI facelift could be a fab confidence booster as it helps create more collagen leaving your skin looking plumper and firmer and of course younger.


So there really is no reason why men cannot stay looking and young and fresh as those beauty treatments aren’t just for women.
