A Question of Mind Over Matter – Age
If you don’t mind, it doesn’t matter. The aging process is simply unstoppable – it happens naturally to all of us. However, even though it’s inevitable, we sure don’t have to let it be visible. There isn’t a woman in the world that doesn’t care about her looks, especially when it comes to her skin; and that is why some women lie about their age. If you are tired of “constant lying”, it’s time to do something and make people really struggle to guess your real age.
Confidence is the Key
Growing older means becoming wiser and you should use that wisdom and turn it into confidence. Right posture, positive thinking and embracing who you have become are the key aspects of looking and acting confident. That self-respect and bold approach to the world will show on the outside and make you look young and energized. You have probably seen a 20-something girl walking down the street with her nose up and your attention was immediately drawn towards her. Don’t envy her; learn something from her and your inner beauty will show on your confident exterior. Walk proud, because you have the reason to do so.
There’s no debate here – your skin has changed over the years. You shouldn’t despair, instead embrace your new look. Don’t use the makeup routines and shades you did in your youth. Lighter foundation, plenty of eye shadow and pale lipstick colors will only make you look older. Instead, switch to softer and warmer makeup. Don’t be afraid to use blush and give your lips some pink. Also, fine, stylish fake eyelashes are welcome and can help soften the look in your eyes and make them younger. Additionally, try contouring. By using a powder that’s bit darker than your skin tone and by applying it on the jawline, temples and the hairline will provide depth to your face and take a few years off your look.
Ladies, let’s face it. Surgery isn’t a taboo topic anymore. With the advances in medical technology, there are plenty of procedures available to us and we shouldn’t be afraid to try them. The professionals from Sydney Institute of Plastic Surgery say that women over the age of 40 can undergo some minor procedures in order to retain their beauty. Those procedures include face and brow lifts, laser resurfacing and blepharoplasty which can all help get rid of the wrinkles. However, there are still plenty of overachieving women who spend a fortune on various procedures and end up overdoing it. Don’t be that kind of a woman; you’ll only make things worse or look like a Barbie doll. That shouldn’t be your goal, just a few minor corrections are enough for you to look younger and feel better about yourself.
Dye your Hair
If you have asked yourself why most celebrities have light blond hair, then you might have already found the answer by the time you turn 40. They do it to hide the grays! Most of the gray hair starts showing part as we get older and that’s quite visible on women with darker hair. In order to hide those pesky grays, you should consider changing your hair color. Take the Hollywood advice and lighten up your hair color, which will instantly change your overall look and make you feel younger. Also, forget about maintaining long hair. As we age, the follicles in our hair stop growing, so try embracing a shorter look. Ask your hairdresser for some advice and create your own hairstyle that will look great on you, emphasize your complexion and put a smile on your face.
Everyone is scared of the old age and what it brings. However, instead of living in constant fear, we should embrace every change and challenge we encounter. These little tricks will help you maintain a youthful look, but you have to work on your attitude. Be confident, walk proudly and smile. After all, you are a woman that has experienced a lot so far and you should use that experience as a boost for your true beauty.
