When we hit 40, there’s something that happens. It’s no surprise that many of us want to look younger when we reach this milestone. But how can we do that?
Here are 5 simple ways to look more youthful after 40:
Limit Your Salt and Sugar Intake
Extra salt and sugar on your favorite foods might have been a comfort in your 20s, but it’s not time to reconsider your dietary choices. According to the Cleveland Clinic, too much sodium in your diet can lead to unhealthy skin appearance. Because salt makes you retain water, that extra pinch of salt might lead to puffy bags under the eyes.
It’s the same story for sugar, too. Eating too much sugar by consuming too many soft drinks, sweets, and other junk food can lead to something called “sugar face,” which can appear in the forms of fine lines, saggy eyes, and wrinkles. Cut out the salt and sugar and you’ll look younger.
Try a New Look
Sometimes all it takes to freshen your look is a new look. If you’ve been wearing the same style of clothes for the past ten or twenty years, it’s time to check out the latest trends. Go for a classic look that accentuates your natural features.
Another way to look younger is to try a new hairstyle. Ask your barber or hairdresser what current styles would look good on you. And men, don’t forget to style your facial hair.
Nothing adds to the signs of aging like stress. Find an activity that centers you and makes your anxieties melt away—and do it as much as possible. If you’re not one for hobbies, consider booking a massage session each month.
Get a Facial
The first signs of aging usually appear on the face, which is unfortunate since that’s the first thing about you that other people notice. But you can fight and even reverse those fine lines and wrinkles with regular facial treatments. At ICBR, we offer facial peels, which can rejuvenate your facial skin and get rid of wrinkles, uneven skin tones, and other signs of aging.
Stay away from Alcohol
A glass or two of red wine every now and then can be good for you, but any more than that and the negatives will outweigh the positives. According to a 2009 study, women who drank excessively looked significantly older than their twins who did not drink. If you have to drink, make sure you do it in moderation if you want to look younger.
Want Another Way to Look Younger?
While there are many ways to fight the signs of aging, what better way than to go to the source of aging. Aging occurs because our bodies wear out. Cell therapy targets the endocrine and immune systems to help give our bodies a boost for better immune response, more energy, reduced inflammation, and improved skin texture. All of this combines to help you look younger.
