As the crow’s feet begin to emerge and the chin starts to sag, we can become a little obsessed with our looks. It’s important to remember that aging is a sign of maturity and is a natural part of life. However, it doesn’t make it any easier when you spy your first grey hair or a burgeoning varicose vein behind your knee. While you cannot halt the aging process, there are ways you can slow it down, at least on the surface, which will help you regain the confidence you once had and look 10 years younger.
How to Look 10 Years Younger
Before you consider reaching for the extensions, don’t. Adding length to your hair is not inherently a bad thing, but trying to achieve the perfect Farah Fawcett thick locks of days gone by when the rest of your body, face, and facade doesn’t quite match can make you look like you’re trying too hard. Instead, consider going shorter.
An edgier pixie crop is hugely flattering. Although it sounds extreme, a tomboy cut can frame your face beautifully and coupled with a subtle color to enhance your natural hue and cover up those emerging grey hairs you can look 10 years younger.
Decades of eating, drinking and being merry will inevitably take its toll on your (not so) pearly whites. If you haven’t ventured to the dentist’s chair for a little while, it might pay to give it a visit. You may opt for a teeth whitening treatment to revitalize your smile.
If you have any alignment issues and you want a perfectly straight set of gnashers, you could give Invisalign a go. Painless and without the need for any gunmetal grey braces encroaching on your teeth, this set of removable aligners could be the tool you need to see the years melt away.
The art of contouring allows you to create the illusion of taut cheekbones even if they are starting to sag just a little. With a little bit of care, you can utilize your makeup essentials to add a more youthful glow to your skin and look 10 years younger.
Try a little bit of bronzing concealer and keep your skin moisturized to exude health. There’s no need to collapse into the surgeon’s chair for a facelift or eyebrow lift. Your crow’s feet may not disappear but do you really want them to? Some signs of aging signify your maturity and should be celebrated.
It’s imperative that you don’t succumb to any form of mid-life crisis and attempt to reclaim your youth with a series of short skirt purchases. There are many older ladies nowadays that look stunning in more modest attire.
Opt for a pair of skinny jeans, knee length pencil skirts, blazers and kitten heels. Just because you’re older doesn’t mean you can’t feel sexy, you just need to achieve the look in the most age-appropriate way.
Aging is not the easiest process to go through and requires a level of acceptance that you may not have reached yet. However, with wise wardrobe styling, a new haircut, and different beauty techniques, you can look 10 years younger and feel more youthful than you have done in years.
