How To Look Younger

You may be getting older, but there’s no need to look it — if you follow this advice.

To complete this How-To you will need:

Bright clothes

Skin products

Brow makeup

False eyelashes

A facial mask

Hand cream

An updated hairstyle

Flattering hair color and highlights

A dentist

Trendy jewelry (optional)

Manicures (optional)

Rings (optional)

Bangs (optional)

Step 1: Lighten up your wardrobe

Wear less black and neutral shades and more color, especially on your top half, where it can brighten up an aging complexion.

Tip: Lose the matched jewelry sets in favor of trendy baubles.

Step 2: Even out skin tone

Even out skin tone with products that contain glucosamine, an amino sugar which has been proven effective in treating age-related discoloration and age spots.

Step 3: Take care of facial hair

Learn to fill in your eyebrows artfully and apply individual false eyelashes; brows and lashes thin as we age; keeping them lush will take years off your face.

Step 4: Start using hand cream

Apply a facial mask with alpha hydroxy acids to the back of your hands to promote surface skin renewal. Start using a daily hand cream with glycerin, petrolatum, and dimethicone.

Tip: Get or give yourself manicures and wear a bright ring or two; in one study, women who wore polish and rings were judged to be younger-looking than those who didn’t.

Step 5: Update your hairstyle

Update your hairstyle, especially if you’ve had the same one for decades. Use thickening products, as hair thins out as we age. Consult a colorist about getting the right shade as well as putting in highlights to replace fading natural ones.

Tip: Bangs are an easy way to hide a lined forehead.

Step 6: Fix and whiten your teeth

Consult a dentist about fixing and whitening your teeth if they’ve become discolored or have shifted with age.

Step 7: Say cheese!

Keep a smile on your face. It gives you an instant facelift.
