One of the biggest insecurities of women over 35 is feeling as if they look older. At this point the skin under the eyes can start to crease, smile lines become more deeply formed, and hairs can start to go grey depending on your body’s chemistry.
While age is hardly something that can be entirely avoided, it can instead be embraced and worked with. There are ways to age more gracefully and wear your age beautifully instead of your age wearing you. Here are some of the best beauty tips for looking younger and more fabulous.
Drinking and smoking cigarettes can be rebellious and exciting in our younger years. Perhaps we associate it with being carefree and living life like a rockstar. After a while, however, when substances are consumed in excess, it can start to take its toll on our bodies. Our faces can change dramatically, either becoming puffier or sometimes gaunt. It can lead to excessive weight gain or loss, and worst of all it dries our skin making us more prone to wrinkles and sunken features.
Try to see alcohol as a special treat which should be savored and enjoyed rather than chugged and abused and you will see a dramatic difference in your aging process.
Drink More Water
Water is the elixir of life. Not only does it improve our body’s functions but it makes us more awake, hydrates your skin, and makes us perform better on a day to day basis.
Try to drink at least one glass of water an hour. Try mixing things in like a dash of lemon or some lime juice for an extra zest of flavor. Sometimes you can opt for sparkling water instead of flat to switch things up.
One of the biggest indicators of age can be a body that starts to look slumped and out of shape. Young bodies are much more forgiving when we don’t exercise regularly, however as we get older and our metabolisms slow down, the need to get up and move more becomes important.
Instead of becoming a victim to gravity and saggy skin, stay fit and try to work out at least 3 times a week breaking a sweat. The rest of the week try to walk at least 30 minutes a day, low impact, and you will see your body hold onto its young shape for much longer than if you weren’t to move at all.
