You can’t turn back time, no matter how many 35th birthdays you’ve had now. The fact is that you are whatever age the calendar says you are, even if you try to ignore it. This doesn’t mean that you have to look your age though. In fact, you might enjoy being a walking contradiction, where people think your daughter is actually your sister. All it takes is a few quick adjustments on your end.
Here are some tips to help you look 10 years younger in less than 20 minutes
1. Wear the Right Clothes
Dated clothing can easily make you look older than you feel. You need to wear something that is form-fitting and sophisticated, without being overly revealing. You don’t have the body that you used to, so you need to learn to highlight the sex appeal that remains. Don’t dress too young because then you’ll actually look even older (not to mention desperate). Take some tips from Kris Jenner or Catherine Zeta Jones, two classy yet seductive women in their 40’s and beyond. Implementing their style into your wardrobe could do wonders for your image.
2. Care for Your Skin
Soft, smooth skin is the ultimate secret to maintaining that youthful glow every woman wants. If you didn’t take proper care of your skin in your teens, you might have to do some extra work to get everything back to normal. Wear sun protecting moisturizer every single day, and use microdermabrasion to restore the outer layer of your skin. You can do all of this right at home, and I guarantee it will make you look younger.
3. Use a Little Makeup
A little makeup can go a long way. If you’re still using the excessive blush and eye shadow you wore in the 80’s, tone it down a bit. If you don’t wear any makeup at all, spruce yourself up to see the difference it can make. Mineral foundation is great for aging skin because it allows the skin to breathe while still covering troubled areas. Combine this with some simple eyeliner, mascara, and lip gloss, and you will regain that fresh appearance you miss so much.
4. Dye Your Hair
Alright, this one take longer than 20 minutes, but I had to throw it in here. Grey hair can easily indicate your age, so why not just get rid of it? You can keep a couple strands to make the color look natural, but the overall dye will help you look a lot younger. Get something close to your natural color without being too bright or extreme. Then all you have to do is touch up your roots when the time comes.
You don’t have to spend a fortune to look 10 years younger – nor do you have to spend a lifetime. All you need is a few minutes of care throughout the day to look your best. Think you can handle the challenge? I know you can.
