No one said that being an adult was easy. Between financial stress, pressure at home and trying to do your best at work, there are plenty of things that can start to age our face. However, turning 40 doesn’t have to mean that you wear all that stress on your face.
In fact, some studies show that people over 40 are much happier than those who are under 40. Who would have guessed?
By taking care of your body and knowing some of the right tricks, you can reap all the benefits that come along with age while still looking like your younger self. Here are some of the best tips for looking younger and feeling at 40 and beyond.
When you sleep, you’re doing your body all sorts of favors. Not only are you regenerating your body and your brain, but you’re also encouraging the fluid around your eyes to drain.
The less that you sleep, the puffier your eyes will be, and the older that you’ll start to look over time. Try to get in at least 8 hours of sleep at night, and not only will your brain feel younger, but your face will look as fabulous as ever.
Dress The Part
Nothing ages you like dressing the wrong way. One of the best things you can do to look young is to avoid fashion that will age you. By keeping up with the latest trends and wearing clothes that are useful and fun, you’ll avoid looking a decade older than you actually are.
In addition to your style choices, the colors you wear also play a role. Many stylists suggest going for bright colors rather than darks or Grays. Darker colors can tend to make you look gloomy and older than you are.
When you think about youth, probably one of the first things that comes to mind is happiness. It’s no secret that children are happy. The more you smile, the younger you’ll look, it’s that simple. Try to get into the habit of smiling as much as possible.
After a while, it will start to become a habit. Not only will you look younger, but you’ll find that people are naturally gravitated towards you because of your positive outlook. Share the joy and smile more.
Get More Exercise
Physical activity is something that will give you not only in slimmer physique, but it will also boost your brain. Getting at least 30 minutes of physical exercise a day will keep you looking and feeling your best.
If you’re the kind of person that doesn’t enjoy exercise, you’re not alone. Sometimes it’s a question of self-discipline. You’ll find that making yourself suffer a few times a week will be well worth the positive results that you gain.
