How To Look Younger As You Get Older

Getting older isn’t something you can do a lot about – it’s just something that happens. However, the way we look as we age is definitely something we have some control over (how much depends on what you want to do about it), and if you would prefer to look younger than your years, keep reading because we’ve got some useful tips to help you do just that.

Cosmetic Surgery 

Perhaps the most obvious and potentially the most beneficial way to look younger as you get older is to get cosmetic surgery from experts like those at STARS Plastic Surgery. You can talk to the professionals, ask their advice, and use their expertise and guidance to determine exactly what it is you want to change, from your nose to your ears to your entire face if you prefer. Cosmetic surgery isn’t something you should ever rush into as it costs a lot and it’s major surgery so there will be quite a lot of downtime and recovery, but if it’s something you want to do, it’s certainly going to help you look younger. 

If you won’t want to commit to something as permanent as a facelift or similar procedure, how about something temporary like lasers, Botox or fillers? These can give you a youthful appearance but without the surgery, so they could be a good starting point if you prefer. 

Protect Your Skin 

The sun’s harmful UV rays can cause a lot of problems, and one of those problems is aging – the sun can give you wrinkles, age spots, and other signs of damage, and you often won’t just look your age, you’ll actually look older (it depends how much damage is done). 

That’s why, if you want to look younger as you get older, you’ll need to make sunscreen a daily essential, even when it’s cloudy. Sunscreen should just be part of your daily routine rather than something you only use when you go on vacation or spend a day at the beach, and the earlier you start to use it regularly, the more protected (and youthful) your skin will be. 

Get Enough Sleep

Quality sleep is essential if you want your skin to look healthy and youthful because it’s when you’re asleep that the skin repairs and rejuvenates – without enough sleep that won’t happen, and you’ll look tired and older, which is the opposite of what you want. 

You should aim for about seven to nine hours of uninterrupted sleep every night to get the best benefits, which include not just good skin, but energy and a feeling of being refreshed. To help, invest in a good quality mattress as well as good bedding to make the bed as comfortable as possible, and make sure the room is completely dark and cool without any electronic devices. 

Manage Stress

Something else that can take a toll on your skin and youthful appearance is chronic stress (and it can cause lots of other health issues too). Unless you do something about it, chronic stress will lead to premature aging signs like wrinkles and dull skin, so it’s clearly something you need to take control of sooner rather than later. 

You’ll need to work out what the best stress-busting techniques are for you (they’ll be different for everyone), so experiment with some deep breathing exercises, yoga, physical workouts, listening to music, doing art, and so on, until you find the thing that reduces your stress and makes you feel good. Your skin will thank you for it.
