How to Look Younger and Feel Better

If you want to look and feel younger, you’re certainly not alone. You can take some simple steps to look younger. However, the best antidote for age is to maintain a healthy lifestyle, eat right, and keep your brain active.

Take a moment to smile. Simply looking like you are enjoying life can make you look younger. Frowning can make you look older, while not smiling makes you look the age you are. To seem younger, put a smile on your face.

Volumize your hair. Your hair can thin out over time, no matter whether you’re a man or a woman. One way to look younger is to use a volumizing product to make your hair look thicker.

  • One way to add volume is to use a mousse while your hair is still damp. Then blow out your hair while using a round brush to lift sections. If you point your blow dryer directly at your roots, you can get even more volume.

Pick a matching color for your hair. Dying your hair obviously covers gray hair, which can make you look younger. However, if you pick a color that is close to your skin tone, it can help hide your thinning hair, as your scalp peeking through isn’t so obvious.

  • Touch up your dye job regularly to prevent roots from showing.

Keep your skin moisturized. Moisturized skin looks younger and healthier overall; dry skin can make you look older. One way to help moisturize your skin is to cut down your shower time and stick to warm water instead of hot water.

  • Also, look for soaps or cleansers that have moisturizers in them to help keep your skin hydrated. When you get out of the shower, apply a lotion or cream to help seal water next to your skin, providing moisture.
  • A humidifier in your home can also help your skin, as can drinking enough water.

Keep the skin on your face skin smooth. Use simple care techniques to prevent pimples and help keep your skin young. For instance, always remove your makeup and wash your face before bed. Not washing your face can lead to your pores clogging.

  • Apply moisturizer whenever your face looks dry. Use a non-oily moisturizer so that it won’t clog your pores and cause pimples.

Retaining your Youth with a Healthy Lifestyle

Keep your body young and fit by exercising. Exercise gives you energy and keeps you active. In addition, it can help you maintain a youthful figure. It also tones your muscles and improves your balance and coordination, and it releases endorphins to lift your mood.

  • For the best results, do both aerobic exercise to trim down and strength training to acquire shapely muscles.
  • Try to jog, walk, swim, or do other physical (aerobic) activities for 150 to 75 minutes per week; focus on the low end of that if you exercise more vigorously and on the high end if you exercise less vigorously. Aim for two strength-training sessions, such as weight lifting, a week.

Drink only in moderation. Drinking too much can give you serious health problems that will make you look and feel old. Excessive drinking can cause cancers of the digestive tract, heart problems, strokes, high blood pressure, and liver disease.

  • If you do drink, you shouldn’t drink more than one drink per day as a woman or a man over 65. Men under 65 can drink up two drinks per day.

Preserve your health by not smoking. Smoking will age your skin, reduce your stamina, and give you serious health problems. Smoking can cause a number of diseases and make you look older.

  • Smoking can contribute or cause lung diseases, heart attacks, strokes, diabetes, eye disorders like cataracts, respiratory infections, gum diseases, and various cancers (from cancer of the esophagus to cancer of the mouth, bladder, throat, or kidneys).
  • Even if you’ve smoked for many years, quitting will still improve your health, let your body heal, and make you look and feel younger.
