We all want to look younger at some point in your life, but no need to think of surgery for this. Sometimes, however, we do not know how to get there. Discover 10 ways to look younger by avoiding cosmetics and cosmetic surgery. We suggest, among these means, some makeup mistakes to avoid at the risk of appearing older.
10. Avoid red and brown blush
Don’t apply blush on your cheeks unless you are still in high school. You should avoid brown and red ones. If you really want to opt for this type of beauty product, opt for colors that are similar to your natural complexion or for a cream formula, in order to have a beautiful finish.
9. Lose some weight
Sometimes losing 10 pounds helps you look 10 years younger. Be careful not to lose too much weight because women must maintain a body fat level around at least 14% and 6% for men so that your face retains its youth. Simply adopt an healthy lifestyle and don’t compare yourself to people who required surgery.
8. Stay young with antioxidants
Antioxidants help fight against free radicals that accelerate the aging process, so the more antioxidants you have in your diet, the more you slow down the aging process and reverse the effects of aging (for example, eliminating wrinkles). Antioxidants are found in carrots, broccoli, onions, tomatoes, oranges, etc.
7. Slow down on foundation
Avoid applying too much foundation, because a thick layer will fit into your fine lines and highlight your imperfections. If you absolutely want to use this product, use a formula thick enough to smooth your complexion without leaving on your face a “pasty” effect.
6. Exfoliate your skin 1 to 3 times per week
When you exfoliate your skin, you also remove all the old dead cells (with oil, dirt, and germs) to instantly reveal a younger, healthier-looking face. Exfoliation stimulates collagen production and since you have eliminated all exfoliating dead cells your skin can absorb the moisturizers and other treatments you apply to it.
5. Forget the black pencil lines under the eyes
You should not draw a black pencil line in front of your eyes for several reasons, more importantly because it makes your eyes look smaller and this accentuates the lines that surround them. Replace your black pencil with a white pencil: your eyes will look bigger and shinier!
4. Sleep around 6 to 8 hours per night
When you are not sleeping enough, you are more likely to become tired and stressed, causing your body to release a hormone called cortisol that damages your skin. Not having enough sleep will make you look puffy. You can easily gain years of youth by getting used to having 6 to 8 hours of sleep each night. Indeed, when you sleep 6 to 8 hours a night, your body produces more growth hormones to keep your skin supple and elastic, preventing it from forming prematurely.
3. Don’t go crazy on concealer
If your concealer is too thick or in the wrong shade, it will more likely to accentuate your dark circles than to camouflage them. The skin under your eyes is 7 times thinner than that in the rest of your face, so avoid putting too much of this beauty product. Use a concealer that has a light formula that matches the complexion of your skin. This will be much cheaper than cosmetic surgery.
2. Avoid super shiny eyeshadows
This type of eye shadow is unfortunately not made for women of any age. Indeed, metallic eye shadows tend to emphasize fine lines and imperfections of the face.
1. Be active
