There are lots of things that give our age away to people that don’t know us. How we dress, the groceries we choose at the store… the movie references we make.
These are all things you can do something about, but actually ageing, and looking older… there’s nothing you can do about that, right?
Well, actually there is! It doesn’t involve going under the knife either! With a couple of very simple lifestyle changes, people will be thinking you’re way younger than you actually are in no time at all!
Sure, most women take care of their face daily with SPF moisturizers, sensitive makeup and natural make up removers. But who gives the same treatments to their neck every day? Because your neck is all muscle and tendons, with no fat deposits there to keep it plumped up and young looking, you’ll noticed that most people’s skin there becomes saggy and wrinkled over time.
In this case, prevention is better than cure! Afford your neck the same skincare routine as your face, and make sure you cleanse, moisturize and so on daily! Also, a great trick to keep a firm neck is doing weird looking face exercises… in private, of course!
Everyone gets wrinkles in their forehead, like death and taxes it’s just a fact of life. Some people get them worse than others, but some people get so self conscious they feel the need to have plastic surgery to connect it. Let’s face it though, there’s no bigger giveaway of age then a totally unnaturally flat forehead on a 50-something year old.
Avoid the temptation to get any fillers or botox treatments. There are plenty of creams and face masks that can help you out while maintaining a natural look, and lots of exercises you can do too!
The philtrum is the vertical groove in the middle of your upper lip, tends to get shallower as the years go by, and you can lose the definition of this expressive part of the face.
Again, there are lots of exercises that will keep the philtrum visible and defined!
Just like the neck, hands don’t have fatty tissue, they’re literally all skin and bone. Your hands don’t actually even have any muscles in them, just tendons! That’s why wrinkles can appear on them and be a dead giveaway for a person’s age, which is only made worse by things like visible veins on the hands.
Once the ageing process has begun, your hands are a tough area to fix, so again prevention is better than cure. To keep skin young and firm, moisturize, wear gloves to do housework, or even check out these simple exercises to help out too!
While maybe it’s not an area that most people put top of their list of the things on their body they hop to keep looking young, your ears can really give away your age! Your ear lobes tend to lose their natural elasticity over the years, and people who often wear big, heavy earrings could particularly notice a difference.
Large earrings can stretch the earlobe, so try to limit the amount of time you wear these, and ensure you take off even small earrings before going to bed. Try using moisturizer on your ears too, as this will preserve your ears’ shape and keeps the skin’s elasticity far longer.
As a rule, when you’re younger, your eyebrows are higher up on your forehead, while brow arches appear to drop with age. This makes the distance between your eyes and eyebrows shorten, and can often give a person’s face a harsher appearance.
This is something else that you can prevent from happening – or at least with such severity – with facial exercises. Before you give that plastic surgeon a call (or start saving!) give this simple exercise a try!
7. Facial contour
As most people can tell you, you lose definition of your facial contours as you age. Cheekbones can become less prominent and lines can look more pronounced as facial muscles become weaker and skin sags.
Along with your regular skin care routine, consider making a quick facial exercise a part of your day! It could really help with the look of your facial contours, with very little time and effort!
