A Youthful Glow

The older I get, the more I am looking for ways to look and feel a little younger while still finding ways to age gracefully. I love a good dose of botox just as much as anyone else, but there are other things we can all do to look a little younger if we want to.

If you fancy looking more youthful for a day or two, you’re in luck. This post takes a look at some of the beauty and fashion tips and tricks you can use to appear younger, even if only temporarily. Check out our ideas below:

Hydrate Your Skin

One of the first things you can do is hydrate your skin. Finding ways to add moisture to it can stop it from looking dull, dry, and cracked – all problems as we get older. 

The best way to hydrate your skin is to use products that keep moisture locked in. Top moisturizers include things like glycerin and ceramides but you can also use basic hyaluronic acid if that’s helped you in the past. 

Make sure to use a humectant. These moisturizers don’t wet the skin. Instead, they help its natural moisture remain trapped inside, making your skin bouncier and less prone to dryness and cracking over time. 

Revamp Your Skincare Routine

Another thing you can try is revamping your skincare routine. Using various anti-aging products, such as vitamin C and retinol can help it appear more youthful over time.

You should also get into the habit of applying sunscreen daily in the morning before you set off. Protecting your skin against the harm caused by UV rays is one of the most powerful things you can do to keep your complexion looking healthy. 

Curl Your Eyelashes With Mascara

Another technique is to curl your eyelashes with mascara. Adding this type of makeup to your routine can significantly enhance the openness of your eyes and how “wide awake” you appear. 

When using mascara, ensure you curl your eyelashes upwards and outwards. Try to make your eyes appear bigger. 

Select Brighter Clothes

When it comes to your wardrobe, it’s a good idea to select brighter clothes. Vibrant colors communicate a sense of youthfulness, making you appear more energetic. 

The best colors for appearing more youthful are bright yellow, orange, and baby blue. However, you should focus on choosing colors that suit your skin tone. You don’t want them to clash!

Don’t Wear Baggy Clothes

While it might be tempting to wear baggy clothes as you get older, avoid the impulse if you can. Bagginness naturally makes you look older and makes it hard for others to define your shape. The best approach is to choose fitted clothes that contour to your figure. 

Change Your Hairstyle

Another way to unlock your youthful glow is to change your hairstyle. Choosing something more youthful can rewind the clock by as much as ten years. 

Pigtail hairstyles for adults are becoming more popular. These immediately communicate a sense of fun and joy, making you feel more energetic. 

You can also try getting a pixie cut. These help to emphasize the jaw and neck, again bringing out your youthfulness. 

Add Concealer To Your Routine

Adding concealer to your routine is another way to unlock your youthful glow. Covering up dark circles around the eyes and putting down some base along your lower lash line can help to transform your appearance significantly. 

Concealer isn’t necessary for everyone, but it can give you an instant glow if you’re just looking for something that will work fast. 

Groom Your Eyebrows

Another way to unlock your eyebrows is to invest in some grooming. Eyebrows look well-kept and stunning when we are younger, but can get out of control as the years go by. 

Fortunately, grooming your eyebrows can make a tremendous difference. That’s because they frame the face, giving it character and structure. Darkening them and trimming them to the proper shape can make a tremendous difference in how youthful you appear overall. 

Buy More Tailored Clothes

If you really can’t find anything that fits you, you might want to experiment with buying more tailored clothes. Getting a professional to cut garments to fit you perfectly can be a fantastic investment.

You can also talk to tailors about which styles will flatter you the most. Many will take cues from your figure and tell you where to shop and what to buy. 

If you really love the clothes you already own, you can ask a tailor to adjust them so they fit you better. Having clothes that fit well can make a tremendous difference in how youthful you appear. 

Add Fun Accessories

Finally, it’s a good idea to add fun accessories to your outfit, such as statement necklaces, heels, and jewelry that make you appear more youthful. Being more playful in your choices will create the desired effect automatically.
