Preserving Your Youth Through Your Looks

Some people can be 70 years old and yet their enthusiasm and verve for life is just as infectious and as obvious as in a 5 year old’s. People like that remain young at heart till their death, and it radiates around the like an aura. But what if you wanted to remain young in looks too? You cannot possibly reverse the aging process, and eventually your cells are going to decay. However, you can slow it down and there are plenty of ways to make yourself look much younger than you actually are.

Bob It Short

Ladies, chop off those long locks and get yourself a bob or sexy pixie cut. The shorter it is, the less weighted down you will appear, making your face look youthful and fresh. However, don’t just take a razor to it; go to a proper stylist who will understand the lines and shape of your face, along with the texture and style of your hair and will give you the most flattering look.

Gentlemen, there are two options for you: shave or do a hair transplant. You don’t need to have Prince Charming locks but you need at least some fuzz on your head. A shiny bald patch screams age. Or, you can go completely bald because, ironically, it makes you look less aged. If you don’t have problems in this area, consider getting some highlights or go for the ‘distinguished’ look with grey stripes on either side of the head. Look at here now to find out the right treatment for your hair.

Supple Skin

As you get older, skin becomes less elastic and it loses its suppleness. It can also be caused by the strong medicines that we ingest as we get older, like supplements for hair loss treatment. One way to retain that supple, youthful skin is to slather on the moisturizer. If you don’t want to be too obvious, get the clinical lotions that have no scent or perfume. Use it twice a day after a shower or bath when your pores are dilated and can absorb it better. Also, exfoliate every two days with a loofah or pumice stone. The last thing is to drink lots of water, but this will not work if it hasn’t been a habit in the last 10 years of your life too.

The Fairest of Them All

The face can give away a lot of your years. To maintain the freshness, exfoliate every two days using a granule based scrub. This goes for all genders. Slap on moisturizer, toner and sun screen regularly. Use a mask every week to rejuvenate your skin. To get rid of the bags under your eyes, keep used tea bags that have been refrigerated on your eye lids for 5-10 minutes. Cucumber slices work too. Massage your face every week (you don’t have to hit the salon – there are video tutorials online) and learn how to give it a natural facelift with just your fingertips. If you want to take it a step further, look for clinical creams that have collagen and a bit of botox in it to help tighten loose and sagging skin. A botox shot in the forehead every 6-8 months will miraculously cure your frown lines too.
