Your Health And Beauty Plan For A Permanent Youthful Appearance

Nobody wants to think about getting older, but it happens to us all. However, just because we get older, doesn’t mean we have to look like we do. Our appearance will change no matter what, but you don’t have to become a stereotypical old person if you don’t want to. If you want to look amazing as you age, it can definitely be done - just take a look at people like Christie Brinkley if you need proof!

This health and beauty plan for a permanent youthful appearance will help you to take better control of your looks as you age, so take a look and see what you can take away to help you to feel better about your age.

Take Care Of Your Body With Diet And Exercise
The first thing you should be doing is taking care of your body with diet and exercise. This is something that can’t and shouldn’t be avoided if you want to look and feel great all the time. Diet and exercise is important for anybody and everybody. Exercise has a plethora of benefits, from younger looks to more endorphins and a better sex drive. Eating healthy food is important too - you’ll notice the difference in the way you look and feel when you eat great food. Here are some pointers you can use to help you:
 

  • Eat foods that you enjoy, but find ways to make them from fresh, healthy ingredients. You can make healthy pizzas and ‘fakeaways’ at home.
  • Make your plate more colorful and ensure you're getting plenty of fibre from fruit and veg.
  • Don’t starve yourself. You should be eating nourishing food that supports your body and exercise, not starving and punishing it. This must be sustainable.
  • Include healthy fats in your diet like nuts, fish, and avocado, as they are great for your hair, skin, and nails.
  • Even walking can be classes as exercise. It’s a great low impact option if you’re just starting out, as is swimming.
  • Try out some classes and weight lifting exercises when you get more confident. Strengthening your body will help you to look amazing and improve the things you do every day, too.

Taking care of your body with diet and exercise is all about balance, moderation, and building great habits in the long term. If you're unsure of where to start, always contact a professional to help you.

Invest In Skincare Products That Really Make The Difference
Skincare is essential if you want to look youthful in the long run, but you need to know which products really make a difference. If you can only invest in one or two high end products, focus on your serum and perhaps your night cream, or even an eye cream. Serums penetrate at a deeper level and can be a great way to change your skin. You should be cleansing, toning, using serum, adding eye cream, and moisturizing twice a day. Make sure you apply a sunscreen too. Protecting your skin from the sun’s rays is crucial, even if it’s not shining it can be damaging!

Sleep On A Silk Pillowcase
A silk pillowcase can stop your face from dragging as you sleep at night, meaning you experience fewer eye lines and wrinkles in other places. It can also help your skin to retain moisture better. They’re not too expensive these days, so make sure you look into purchasing and notice the difference they can make to your skin health. You could notice an immediate difference upon waking in the morning!

Go For Regular Health Check Ups
Regular health check ups will help you to catch any issues before they turn into even bigger issues. Make sure you go for your eye checks, dental checks, and general health checks to be sure that you don’t have any underlying problems that can take more time, money, and effort to fix in the long run.

Look After Your Teeth
Something that can really show your age is yellowing teeth that haven’t been looked after. They can make somebody in their twenties look much, much older. Make sure you’re taking care of your teeth with regular trips to the dentist, brushing, flossing, and rinsing, and using the occasional whitening treatment. Whitening from the dentist is probably the easiest way to go about it, but it can be more expensive this way. You may want a home treatment, but do your research first to ensure that it’s safe. You don’t want to end up damaging your teeth in the long run. Some treatments can cause terrible sensitivity too, so be aware of this.
 

Get Your Eyebrows Professionally Shaped
Your eyebrows can make your face, so if you haven’t shaped them, or worse you’ve over-plucked them, they can make your face look strange. Investing in a professional eyebrow treatment to shape them could be one of the best things you ever do - HD brow treatments can be expensive, but you know you’re getting a thorough treatment where the therapist will shape your brows especially to suit your face, and tint them to make them more noticeable. If you don’t have much in the way of brows, microblading is a popular treatment that could help you to have permanent eyebrows without makeup. Just make sure you go to somebody who has a great portfolio, as you don’t want to go to somebody inexperienced and be stuck with terrible results. Bear in mind that the eyebrows will wear off eventually, so it’s a good idea to have a yearly top up. It can save you a lot of time on drawing on your eyebrows, too!

Make Sure You’re Sleeping Well
Getting a decent amount of sleep will make a big difference to how youthful you look. If you’re getting 6 hours or less, you can pretty much guarantee that you won’t look your best. That being said, everybody is different and needs a different amount of sleep. It’s all well and good telling somebody to get 8 hours a night, but some people may need 9, and some may need 7. Pay attention to what makes you feel and look your best.

Look After Your Nails
Having nicely shaped, clean, and shiny nails will help you to look healthy. You don’t want nails of different lengths and shapes, and you certainly don’t want them to be discoloured from things like smoking and not wearing a base coat when you wear nail polish. Apply hand and nail cream regularly too!

Wear Sunglasses
Sunglasses protect the delicate skin around the eyes from the sun, and can stop you from squinting into it when it’s bright!

Know The Type Of Makeup That Suits You
Make sure you know what kind of makeup suits you. For example, light eyeshadows can help to open up the eyes and give a brighter look.

Try A New Hairstyle
Maybe your hairstyle is aging you more than you realize. Getting a fringe or being brave and having your long hair cut into a bob could be a great way to take years off your face. Have a chat with an experienced hairdresser and see what they recommend.

Stand Up Straight
Failing to stand up straight could cause long term posture problems, which adds pounds on to your frame and is bad for you for a number of reasons!

Think Positively About Your Age
The more positive you are about your age, the better you tend to look - seriously, science proves that not feeling good about aging can actually help you to look younger.
