Do you look in the mirror, only to feel disappointed by what you see? Once there was a smooth, clear complexion staring back at you, but now all you can seem to see are lines, imperfections, and wrinkles – does this sound right? If so, this post is designed to help you feel much better about yourself. Read on for some great tips on how you can look younger in an instant:
Drink More Water
Water is the key to everything; feeling great, losing weight, looking younger, you name it! If you don’t currently drink enough water, your skin could be dehydrated. You should drink at least 2 litres per day, more if you exercise. Try to drink it in place of your usual beverages, like juice, pop, and coffee. Add lemon to make it more interesting and even more clarifying!
Cut Back on Sunbathing
If you’re into sunbathing or going on the sunbeds, the best thing you can possibly do is cut this out. Going on every now and again isn’t too bad, but going on for months at a time can seriously damage your skin and cause premature ageing. Yes, you might have a tan, but what’s the point in looking bronzed if you also look 10 years older?
Overhaul Your Diet
Diet is one of the most important factors in looking our best, and many people neglect to get it right. With the right diet, not only will you look younger, you’ll feel amazing, and may even lose fat! You should be eating lean meat, a bomb load of vegetables, the occasional piece of fruit, carbs in moderation (after a workout is best), and things like coconut milk, coconut oil, and Greek yoghurt. Avoid junk food, food that’s labelled ‘diet’, and anything to do with Slimming World or Weightwatchers (this is just a fancy way of counting calories, which you don’t have to do if you’re eating right)!
Give Yourself a Facial
You don’t have to fork out a fortune for a facial, you can give yourself one at home that will give you great results. Here’s what to do:
- Gather products suited to your skin type. If you’re not sure, ask somebody on the beauty counter in a store like Boots.
- Start off by cleansing your face.
- Now exfoliate, concentrating on your T-zone.
- Apply an anti ageing face mask and relax for a while.
- Remove the mask, and apply toner.
- Now you can apply a nice rich moisturiser like LifeCell and any special wrinkle creams to your eyes! Read these LifeCell reviews to see if this moisturiser is right for you!
Get a New Haircut
Sometimes, our haircuts can age us without us realising. Ask your hairdresser whether she can think of something that would make you look younger, whether that’s a new style, colour, or both.
With these tips, you can look younger in no time providing you remain consistent with your new routine! Have any of these tips worked for you? Let us know in the comments!
