3 ways to help you look and feel more youthful
Aging is a certainty and one of the things in life that we cannot change no matter what we do, but we all tend to deal with it a little differently. For some, a few extra wrinkles are just part of life and nothing to be concerned about. For others, getting older brings with it confidence challenges and can be a little harder to accept.
If you fall into the latter category or are struggling with the reflection you see when you look in the mirror, there are some things you can do to slow the signs of aging.
Here are 3 ways to help you look and feel more youthful.
A good beauty routine can set you in good stead for a nice complexion and good skin when you get older, so regardless of how old you may be, if you don't already have a skincare routine, adopt one asap. Our skin has to ensure dirty, grime, and oils every day, so using a facial cleanser each morning and night will help to clear away some of the impurities and pollutants that it encounters.
A toner balances out the skin and will make sure that it clears your skin of anything that your cleanser may have missed. Lastly, your skin needs moisture, so using a good moisturizer twice a day will help to replenish your skin and may also help to prevent wrinkles from forming.
Cleanse, tone, and moisturize
Imagine your skin is like a plump and juicy grape. Now imagine what happens to that grape when it starts losing moisture. It slowly starts to lose shape and becomes a shriveled and wrinkled raisin. When you don't drink enough water, the same thing happens to your skin, so if you want to maintain and a more youthful appearance, you must keep it hydrated.
It's recommended that the average adult drink between 2 and 3 liters of water a day. This may sound easy, but in reality, it can be difficult to maintain. Get into the habit of carrying around a hydro flask with you. It will help to keep the water cool for hours, and you will be far more inclined to keep drinking throughout the day. They come in a variety of colors and styles and, if you want to personalize them, you can even buy hydro flask stickers too!
Stay hydrated, and not only will you feel more energized, but your wrinkles will appear far less visible too.
If you don't think you look good, then you aren’t likely to feel that great either, so don't let the fact that you are getting older stop you from taking care of yourself. If you haven’t had a haircut in a while, why not consider a completely new style? If you have had the same clothes in your wardrobe for the last decade, treat yourself to some new ones.
You may not be able to turn back the clock, but if you take a bit of time making the most of what you have, your confidence will soar, and you will not only look younger but might feel a lot younger too.
