Age Ain’t Nothin’ But A Number – Simple Tips on How to Look Younger

So apparently 40 is the new 30, do you agree? Nowadays, with increasing focus being placed on careers over starting a family, we are starting to delay things our parents and grandparents would have done much earlier in their lives. The average age of married couples having their first child is increasing, which can partly be attributed to their attention being on career progression and enjoying certain freedoms before having children. With this in mind, we are seeing a rapid growth in industries such as cosmetics and healthcare aimed at improving our health and making us look younger. Below are a few simple tips on how you can look younger, without breaking the bank.

1) Stand up straight

One of the easiest (and free) ways of looking younger is to simply have a straight posture. Poor posture is usually associated with the elderly and those with health problems, but is increasingly becoming more common thanks to the proliferation of smartphones and spending hours sitting working on computers.

Straining our necks while using our phones and hunching over our desks constantly, have led to gradual posture issues for many. Becoming more aware of this and correcting it will not only improve your health, but help you look and feel younger. If you are struggling for awareness of your posture, invest in a posture correction shirt that you can wear underneath your usual clothing and will gradually align your body into an ideal position.

2) Have a wardrobe refresh

Out with the old, in with the new right? Sometimes all it takes is a good old fashion shopping spree to help you look younger. And i’m not talking about buying corny t-shirts with slogans printed on the front, but rather high quality, well-fitting clothes in modern cuts. This is equally as relevant to women as well as to men.

Why not kill two birds with one stone and get rid of all the old clothing you no longer want or wear? Minimising your clothing options and recovering storage space could make dressing yourself less of a chore and more enjoyable. Just remember, looking younger doesn’t necessarily mean dressing like those younger than you, but more about what your clothes say about you and how you carry yourself. Dress in a way that makes you feel energetic and lively.

3) Exercise often

Building good habits are a way of keeping your mind focused and improving your discipline. Regular exercise should also be seen as an essential way of living a healthy lifestyle, along with a healthy diet. By working out regularly you will be improving your body’s blood supply, therefore increasing your organ’s efficiency. If your body is working well on the inside, it will certainly show on the outside!
