7 Ways to Look Beautifully Younger As Ever

7 Ways to Look Beautifully Younger As Ever



We've all heard "Age is just a number!" and "You’re as young as you feel!" Well, we say "ptooey!" to that. There's no use in feeling 10-years younger if you can't get mistaken for somebody who is.


The good news is that it's easier than ever to look and feel more youthful and energetic than you ever have. With the help of today's leading skin, hair, and makeup experts, we've gathered the most effective ways to turn back the clock, from the color and length of your hair to the most effective skin care products. No matter what your age, these tips will have you feeling and looking way BEAUTIFULLY YOUNGER.



STAY HYDRATED



Dry, flakey skin can cause makeup to build up in wrinkles and creases, adding years to your complexion. The simple solution? Make sure your daily skin care regimen includes a good moisturizer.


While dry skin on your face is a no-no, most women forget about how aging dry hair can be. The key to youthful-looking hair is to do a weekly deep conditioning treatment. This will put moisture back into the hair.


It's easy to add a deep conditioning treatment to your weekly routine. Put a moisturizing hair mask on with a shower cap and watch TV for an hour. If you want to see even better results, heat the shower cap on low heat with a blow dryer. This is great for the hair and the scalp.


7 Ways to Look Beautifully Younger As Ever




LIGHTEN UP



The right hair color is key when it comes to looking younger. A typical rule I like to use is to look at a picture of yourself when you're a kid, and try to get as close to your childhood color as possible.
 
Another tip also consider lightening your lipstick color, and use light to medium toned lipsticks in sheer, creamy, or glossy textures. Deep, matte lipsticks can create a harsh look. Also, lighter colors won't look as obvious if they bleed into lines around the mouth.




TREAT MORE THAN YOUR FACE



When it comes to anti-aging skin care routines, it's easy to put all the focus on your face and forget about your other 2,000 parts. Don’t forget your lips! Lips are often neglected in skin care regimens, but dry or cracking lips can make a person’s entire face look older. We recommends daily use of beeswax or petroleum-based lip balms to protect the lips from chapping. In addition to your lips, it's important not to neglect the hands and décolleté. Wrinkles and sun damage in these areas are easy giveaways of one’s age.




EAT SMART



When it comes to food, what you eat can help you put your best face forward. Researchers have found that certain foods help not only moisturize your skin but also help prevent wrinkles, reduce redness, and improve circulation. (Translation: You really can eat your way to a rosy glow.)



Next time you go to the grocery store, remember that what you eat is just as important as what you put on your skin. The following superfoods will not only help you look younger, but they'll also make you feel younger as well. Eat now and thank us later:

1. Romaine Lettuce -  Improves circulation
2. Strawberries - Prevents skin from sagging
3. Eggs - Makes skin softer and firmer
4. Almonds - Increases moisture
5. Olive Oil - Helps skin resist UV damage
6. Fruits – lots of fruits because it makes your skin glowy and dewy.

ADD ANTIOXIDANTS



While a diet rich in antioxidants is key to helping our bodies eliminate free radicals and prevent heart disease and cancer, they’ve become equally as important in anti-aging skin care. Antioxidants are like fire extinguishers that put out the flames in the skin caused by UV light exposure. Popular topical antioxidants such as vitamin C, vitamin A, CoEnzyme Q-10, shiitake complex, and caffeine can help calm irritated skin, prevent wrinkles and sun damage, and tighten and tone skin. I recommends using an antioxidant in the morning to make sure you maintain a youthful glow.





GET YOUR BEAUTY SLEEP



Studies show that sleep is nature's beauty treatment, and lack of it can lead to obvious physical signs, such as sunken eyes, dark circles, and puffiness. And it's not just one night's bad sleep that can set you back; it's possible that the effects of missing one hour here and there can build up, and your body can show signs of chronic sleep deprivation over time. A lack of sleep also increases the levels of cortisol in your body, which can lead to problems in the skin, such as breakouts.



To make sure you get a full 7 to 8 hours of sleep a night, shut off anything stimulating an hour before bedtime, such as a television, computer, or iPhone or iPad. Dim the lights, get into bed, and curl up with a good book.





MOVE IT



The good news about exercise is that it’s never too late to start. Just 20 minutes of brisk walking or running a day can get you on your way to a healthier and younger lifestyle. In addition to helping you shed unwanted pounds, recent studies have shown that exercise can alter the course of aging. Case in point? Mice who ran 45 minutes, three times a week, proved to have not only more brain activity and muscle mass than their sedentary counterparts, but also more hair with less gray. We’ll jog to that!


In addition, I’ve asked some bloggers….
