The Fountain of Youth: Three Ways to Look and Feel Younger

When we reach a certain age, a bit of extra effort may be required to look and feel young. With the overwhelming amount of products available claiming to be the fountain of youth, it’s difficult to know what products you actually need, and which ones will work for you, your lifestyle, and your budget. Many products may also make it look like you’re striving too hard to look younger and make you appear unnatural. When striving to look younger, it’s important to pay attention to a few foundational aspects of your appearance: your teeth, your skin, and your hair. Accept that you are growing older and that you’re beautiful at any age. Use products to enhance your natural beauty and give you a fresh, younger glow.
Your Smile
Years of coffee, wine, and age can have a harsh effect on your teeth. Many individuals have young-looking skin but feel self-conscious about their smiles, because of the stains age has applied. Cosmetic dentistry is a great solution if you’re self-conscious about your teeth. It’s a new term for ages-old procedures that have been benefiting individuals for generations. From dental implants and crowns to teeth whitening, cosmetic dentistry may be a great solution for you to refresh your look and help you regain a sense of confidence in your effortless smile.

Your Skin
Many women have reported that once they reach their thirties, their old skincare regimen no longer works. Skin is more resilient in your teens and twenties, and harsh products have less effect than they do when you reach your thirties. It’s often best to switch to gentler skincare products that don’t dry out the skin and won’t clog pores, especially because adult-onset acne is common among women in their thirties and forties. It may be time to start budgeting for a monthly trip to the dermatologist or to an aesthetician, who can recommend consistent treatments to keep your skin cells regenerating and give your skin a beautiful, youthful glow. Exercise will also help your skin glow and give you more energy throughout the day, as well as providing a myriad of other wonderful health benefits.
Your Hair

As we grow older, hair thins, becomes more brittle, loses luster, and often changes color. Increasingly, aging individuals choose not to color their hair to cover grey, which can be a beautiful choice, allowing one to age gracefully. Many products are available to help thicken and add body to limp hair, and deep conditioning treatments and serums can help add a shiny, youthful appearance to hair that is diminishing in shine. Often shorter hair cuts work better for thinning hair, because the weight of the ends of your hair won’t weigh the roots down. If you do decide to color your hair, consult a professional colorist to get a natural color that enhances skin tone.
