As you get older, you start to have a clearer view of what you want out of life. Things that used to annoy you don’t tend to be as much of an issue. Situations that would perhaps have worried you previously can seem inconsequential. With age, you gain clarity about life, and that in itself can feel refreshing and liberating.
On the flip side, your body starts to slow down, your face starts to change, and you may begin to notice that the years are beginning to take their toll. You can’t stop the aging process, but if you want to slow it down a little, there are things you can do to look and feel younger.
Staying in shape is a great way to make you feel younger, and there are loads of options to choose from. If you prefer lower impact exercise, yoga or Pilates will help to strengthen your muscles and keep your joints supple too. Cardio such as running or cycling are great for your heart and lungs and can be enjoyed regardless of how old you are.
Another great but far more leisurely and relaxing option is walking. Buy a fitness tracker and try to aim for around 10,000 steps a day. It’s a great all-round exercise that will help keep you feeling young.
Change your appearance
If it has been years since you had a new hairstyle or your make up seems a little dated in appearance, changing your look can do wonders. Consider a different hair color and a new hairstyle and experiment with different make-up colors.
If you wear glasses, a new set of frames could transform your face and make you feel a bit trendier. You don’t even have to visit a retailer or an optician. Trying on glasses online couldn’t be easier, and will give you the chance to try an array of different styles until you find a style you think suits you.
A change of appearance can boost your confidence and make you feel a bit more youthful.
Look after your skin
A good skincare routine can help delay the aging process, so regardless of your age, it’s worth doing. Cleanse your skin every morning and night and follow up with a toner. It will help to keep your skin clean and your pores clear and free of excess oils. Follow this up with a good day or night moisturizer to keep your skin nourished.
Although it’s not essential, it’s a good idea to use a day cream with a built-in SPF. It will help protect your skin from the sun – another culprit when it comes to aging skin.
In terms of your body, moisturizing after every shower or bath or every evening before you go to bed will help lock in moisture and revitalize your skin.
Not only will a good skincare routine help your skin and make it look healthier, but it will also feel softer to the touch.
