Don't Want To Look Your Age? 3 Ways You Can Look Younger Instantly

If you're like most women, you've spent your fair share of money on products that promise to help you age gracefully and keep you looking younger for longer. However, none of those products can help you look younger instantly. Fortunately, there are a few easy things you can do to look younger now. All it takes is a couple of hours or less to take years off your appearance. The following are just a few ways you can look younger instantly. 

Get a New Hairstyle

Your hair can weigh you down and make you look older than you actually are. As you get older, opt for a shorter style that has lots of movement. Cuts that frame your face and/or side bangs are ideal for restoring a youthful appearance. Also, don't forget color. Nothing dates you like gray hair. However, you can't go very dark when you get older. The rule of thumb is to go lighter in color and shorter in length as you get older. So pick a shade that's a few shades lighter than your natural color. Highlights are also a great idea. 

Get a Makeover

Less is more when you are older. If you're still wearing a lot of makeup, it could be settling in your fine lines and making them more noticeable. If you want to look younger, wear less makeup. Opt for natural, light colors that enhance your features rather than paint them up. If you need help creating a more natural look with lighter makeup, visit your local makeup counter for a tutorial. They will be happy to show you products that are perfect for your age and skin type. They will also show you how to apply them. 

Get a Procedure

Quick, non-invasive cosmetic procedures, such as Botox and fillers, can make you look younger in a single office visit that lasts no longer than your lunch break. While they use different mechanisms, both of these procedures help smooth out wrinkles and make skin appear fuller and more youthful. These procedures yield predictable and temporary results, which makes them ideal for people who want a subtle change.

As you can see, there are several things you can do to look younger instantly. If you're feeling a bit down about your age, simply get a makeover and/or see your cosmetic surgeon for a touch up. A new look can take years off your appearance. For more information, contact local professionals like Cynthia Lawder, MD.
